New Student Enrollment

1. As a first step, we invite the parents to come visit the school so that they can observe on what occurs in the classroom on a daily basis. If the parent is interested in continuing the enrollment process, payment for the Application Fee and enrollment information is required. An orientation session needs to be scheduled for the child to participate in daily activities. The school will decide the date and notify the parents within 07 working day. The parent may stay at the school during the orientation session but we ask that they allow the child to stay in the classroom on their own for about 30 minutes. This provides the teacher with the opportunity to observe the child and how they interacts with the other children and the materials.

2. After observing the students, admissions committee will consult with the lead teacher and the school will make the final decision for all applications for admission. Results are sent to parents within 07 working days.
