My daughter is born on 17 august 2016. Can she enroll for kg1 in cbse curriculum school in dubai for year 2020 to 2021. If as per KHDA rules no. Can any schools still enroll her. Kindly advice.
I am afraid that there is no flexibility in relation to enrolment dates for children in UAE schools – these are determined by the Ministry of Education and applied by the regulator in each emirate. As your daughter will not have turned 4 by 31st July this year, she will not be accepted. You may wish to consider her joining a pre-KG class for which she is age-appropriate, although the number of schools offering this grade is limited.
The other option would be to consider a UK curriculum school where she would be accepted in September in FS2 (the equivalent of KG1) since the cut off date is generally 31st December. However, if you wished to transfer her to an Indian curriculum school later, she would almost certainly have to repeat a grade as she would not have completed the academic year in the UK curriculum when joining an Indian curriculum school at the start of the April academic year.
