    hi,alok ur son is exactly in the age for kg1. hope you know the best schools close their admissions before november. even iam trying fr my younger son who is of the same age group for kg1 in bharatiya vidya (mussafa) as most of the indian schools located in villas will be shifted to mussafa next year.only some nursey and kindergardens do take children at4+ but age difference will be a bar i when u shift him fr grade 1to any good school

    hi,my son is nov'08 we didnot get admission for him in any nursery as he was 20 days back of their required age level. but schools they are ready to give admission for kg1 for3to4yrs.you are really worrying alot abut yr kids capacity frankly tell u my kid can say, recognise andread ever alphabet bothcapital and small ,recites 32poems and songs say numbers upto100 without a stop, started with arabic alphabets .my house looks like areal mess of all english and arabic alphabets hanging around.so dont worry every child has more than this capacity.urs one too.heard ick is agood nursery but no more idea abt it.

    just started with writing part. i preferd bharatiya vidya as its one of the few school providing good text and extra cocaricular acitivities ,.......,st joseph also does but it has only till grade6for boys,many of the good indians schools were shifted to "o"level(british syllubus)this yr. i got adm(kg2) for my elder one in a near by school to ur villa but fact is he get fussed up as thesevilla based schools dont have any extra activities than thus parrot learning.(he is just going through the same portion what he did fr kg1 ina cbse school in bombay.)so seeking adm.fr both . abudhabi indian school follows lotory system.

    I had checked with the registrar of Our Own school and she had confirmed to me that there is no upper age limit for LKG admissions, infact she said it is upto the parents if they want to admit their child at 3+ or 4+, during the admissions at Abu Dhabi Indian School I had met one parent who had admitted her child at 4+ to LKG in Abu Dhabi Indian School. So it is upto you to decide what's best for your child.

    In India now most state boards and CBSE are encouraging parents to admit their child to LKG at 4+, in fact some state boards are not accepting children less than 4 for LKG admissions.

    Hope this info helps

    Regards

    also as i am new to this place can u plz tell me when the applications are being issued for coming academic year

    Hi,
    Please check the school websites in the month of December. Before the schools close for the Winter Holidays(3rd week of December to First Week of January) the forms are issued. Mostly the forms are to be filled online and a registration no. is given. When admissions are confirmed, a notification email or sms is also sent by the schools.

    Parvathi.

    I think it is better to go and check in person because when I telephoned abu dhabi indian school they said that they will admit 4+ kids to LKG.

    December is the time when most schools will finalise their admissions.
