Parenting Resources

At the BCT, we understand that information is vital when it comes to preparing for a baby’s birth, raising children or settling down as a family in a foreign country. That’s why we have developed a network of services and tools that supply information to all our members.

ON PAPER. ONLINE. BY EMAIL.
WE BELIEVE THAT INFORMATION SHOULD BE SHARED IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE.

The volunteers of our Info-Team are just a phone call away when you need help to find what you are looking for within our many services, events and groups. There is also a collection of Belgium related links that families might find helpful.

Our largest parenting resource, however, are our members. The members' magazine Small Talk, our official Facebook group, our new app on Twizzit, our blog -  all these are tools that help members to take advantage of the combined experience and knowledge of our membership on all aspects of being and becoming a parent here in Belgium.

There are many more benefits that a BCT membership can bring to your family life. Become a member, too!

"The day I found the BCT was the first day I thought, ‘OK, I can do this.’ Within a month of joining, I had found a group of toddlers and moms I could connect with, plenty of recommendations for paediatricians and other much needed services, and a great source on anything I could need for my family. It’s only been 4 months since we moved here, but I feel just as settled as I did back in the US and can only attribute this to the BCT and its amazing resources and community."

BCT Information Team

INFORMATION TEAM

At the forefront of our services is our Information Team. Reachable by phone and by email, this team of volunteers is there to answer all your questions related to a BCT membership, our group activities, events, classes and courses as well as general questions on pregnancy, birth and family living in Belgium. If we haven’t got an answer to your question, we will direct you to other sources of information.
Get in touch at info@bctbelgium.org.
