Amity international school Noida   :  On 31 July 2017 AIS Noida started with their nursery class admission . Eligibility  for nursery class was 3 + years as on 31 march of the academic year of which admission is required. We had to fill the online form and had to deposit Rs. 300/- processing  fee via credit card. I filled the form on 2nd Aug. 2017 and right after submission of form online got 4 Aug. 2017  3:30 pm as time to submit the hard copy of the form. We reached the school on given time and were guided to a respective class room where we had to submit the form. Everything was well organised. After we submitted printout of our form we were given a questionnaire which was supposed to be completed in 40 minutes no extra  time was given later  on as other lot of parents were allotted time  after  an hour.   For the form submission only one parent was  required  to come and child was not suppose to come. Although I went with my husband and child and would recommend if both the parents  go for the same as it helps them to discuss and fill the questionnaire. Its better not to bring the child for this   

The questions  were like

·         Educational qualification of both parents,  paternal and maternal grand parents their job profile their achievements, 

·         Then their  were some questions on parenting like 

·         - How to deal with a restless child.

·         - How would you deal if your child is not able to cope up with the studies

·         - How would you deal if your child is bullied or bullies other children

·         - What would you do if your child brings the tiffin unfinished

·         -What values you want to inculcate  in your child

·         -How can you contribute in the growth of your child

·         - Your expectations  from the school

·         -How would you deal if your child misbehaves in public

·         -Is behaviour caught or taught 

·         -What do you think of current education scenario  

·         - Rate your preference distance from school , teacher  students  ratio, academics, extra curricular activities

·         -Who takes care of child if the mother is working

·         -How routine helps one   

We were not allowed to use the phones in the class so it is better to take educational information of child's grand parents in advance The result of the first interaction which is subm8ssion of form printout  and filling n submitting this questionnaire  came on 9 August 2017 Then on 11 Aug.  2017 we had to go for second and final interaction  For this both the parents with kid were  suppose to come We had to take the print out  and fill a one page form sent to us We had to take the original birth  certificate  with original address proof .  After verifying  documents and submitting the one page form which had basic information of kid we were given a new questionnaire  to fill this time the questionnaire  was of only one page  

The questions  were   

1.    1. Why you chose  amity ?

2.    2. What are your dreams for your child ?

3.    3. What are the important things the school should have or do for pre school children?

4.    4. What is your opinion about creating a routine in a child’s life?

5.    5. Is mother  working  Yes or No if yes then who looks after the kid ?

6.    6.Is the child  in good health yes or No if no describe the illness ?

7.    7. Give the order of preference for the  following criteria you look for admission of ur child reputation,; extra curricular  activities;  student teachers  ratio; over all academic  result; sports; ranking  

After waiting  for 2.5 hrs our turn came we went inside  a room where 3 teachers were sitting out of which one was interacting with kid one was interacting with parents  and one was only observing parents she didn’t utter a word  during interaction 

  Questions asked from parents 

·         They asked us the school/ colleges where we completed our education

·         Our respective thesis topic and some details  about it ( as I am a PhD and my husband also pursuing the same )

·         Why have you chosen amity for your child

·         Our opinion on home work

·         What is the parent role in child’s education 

·         Do you think schools only should take care and are responsible for child’s education and over all development 

From the Kid :  Thread and beads  activity  I could see him doing and teacher was asking colours and rhymes  After  we were done a teacher  gave a toffee to my kid to which  he said thank you and then my kid recited a poem to which  all the smiled. Honestly I don’t know what they exactly asked  my child but this is what I saw as a teacher  was continuously  communicating with both of us and we were completely  involved in that conversation  it was not feasible  to listen to the questions they asked my child  and what my child responded   On 16 Aug. 2017 the result was to come. Initially  our result status showed " the second cleared list of admission will be declared  on 15 sept  2017"  I was surprises to see this status as our interaction  went quite well. But after two days  i.e. on 18 sept 2017 at late night  I randomly checked  my status via login id and password they had given at the time of online form submission  the status was changed and my kid was selected. We were given five days to deposit the fee draft  of Rs. 87775/-

  Some important notes

·         - reach  the interaction place on time

·         - keep our documents ready a night before interaction to avoid

·         -keep the kid’s  Adhaar card ready

·         -Photo copy of child's  birth  certificate 

·         -photo  copy  of parents highest qualification  certificate 

·         -id proof or adhar card copy of both the parents 

·         -passport size photos of both the parents and kid Employment certificate and income proof of working parents  

·         Keep the kid relax happy and calm for interaction  

·         Kindly arrange  kids sleeping and eating time  according to the time given to you for interaction  so that  they are not cranky            

 

Thank You
