Recording of children in schools begins, as a rule, in the spring (in March) and ends before the very beginning of the school year - in August.

The deadlines for receiving applications and filing documents in each school are set individually - at the discretion of the management, but must be prescribed in the charter of the school.

Until recently, children entering the first class had to undergo entrance examinations. Now it is strictly forbidden to conduct any tests, competitions or exams, so in case of violation of this prohibition, you must apply to the education department.

The only exceptions are language schools. In all other cases, before enrolling in school, with a future first-grader they can only talk in the presence of their parents. In some schools, despite the directive, persistently continue to arrange another contest - for the amount of a "voluntary" sponsorship fee, transferred by parents to the bank account of the school.

In such cases, too, you have to complain to the education department or to the hotline. Many parents are interested in how to enroll a child in school if they do not have a residence permit? The presence of a residence permit from parents is not a prerequisite for admission of children to the ranks of first-graders, but temporary registration must be made without fail.

When writing to any school priority usually given to the inhabitants of nearby houses, graduates of preschool institutions, with whom a contract, and children whose brother or sister are already in this school. In a conventional school accept children after 6.5 years, and to write in school with profound studying of subjects of a child who was 7-8 years.

Another dilemma that often arises with the parents of future first-graders is the choice between a private and public school. It is not a fact that the non-state will be better, because there are "good" and "bad" among any schools.

The main difference, of course, in payment. But in a private school all parents sign a contract for the training of their child. And if its conditions are violated, then it is possible to return the money paid in court and additionally receive a certain amount of compensation for moral damage.

If you decide to enroll a child in private school, then you need to make sure that she has the right to conduct educational activities, as well as to make sure that the school was accredited and has the right to issue document of the state sample.

To give an exhaustive answer as to how to enroll a child in school, it remains to clarify the list of documents that must be provided to the school. There are only three of them:

  • copy of birth certificate
  • health card f. 026у-2000 (issued either in kindergarten or in a local clinic)
  • statement.

When submitting documents, parents must have a passport with them. It is also necessary to make sure that the application is registered at the school. A few tips for the parents of a future first-grader:

  • talk to the teacher, which should become for the student a "second mother"
  • talk to parents whose children already attend the school to know their opinion about the school
  • choosing a school, pay attention to nearby – school should be near home
  • the new school building is not a sign of quality training in it
  • home child not used to the team, it is better to give to a private school where classes are small and the teacher can devote more attention to him
  • painful baby is not recommended to give to a language school and high school because the homework is too pooped out.
