Nursery admissions can be a stressful time for parents and children alike. First comes the stress of choosing the schools to apply for. Once called for an interview with the school, parents start wondering how they can be prepared enough to ensure the child’s admission.
While our previous write-up gave you a list of questions to prepare for your kid, this one gives you the questions you, as parents, should be ready to answer.
Can you tell us something about yourself and your family?
Can you describe your child?
Are both parents working? If yes, who spends maximum time with the child? Tell us something about them.
Do you in a joint or nuclear family?
Please tell us about your qualifications.
How many people are there at home?
What are you looking for in your child’s school?
Please tell us your views on homework.
What made you apply to our school?
Have you applied to other schools as well? If yes, which ones?
How much time does the mother/father spend with the child?
Is there anything specific you would like us to know about your child?
Does your child have any allergies?
How do you handle it when your child misbehaves?
What is your mother tongue? What language is spoken at home?
Has your child been to playschool?
Is your child toilet/potty trained?
What do you want your child to become in future?
Is your child up to date with all vaccinations?
Tell your experience as a father/mother?
When answering the above questions, it is best to express your views clearly to the school, so that they are well aware of your expectations. To be prepared, try and discuss these points with parent friends who are in the same boat. It will help you know their viewpoints and also decide what is best for your child.
