I am really keen to get my son admitted in Abacus Montessori. I have been to the school, submitted the application and I know of the process 'on paper'.

Any parents whose kids go to Abacus - who can give me some advice on how to ensure admission?

Hi Vidya,

I am also trying to get admission in Abacus, but failed. Are you able to get admission form there? We recently moved from US, i heard from them that admissions are over. My daughter is 3.5 years.

Can you share your experiences?

Thanks

Anee

Dear Anee,

My son turned 3 in April this year. They start admissions very early - like all Montessori schools, they admit children from the age of 2. Therefore, anytime after that, admission is subject to availability.

They admit children three times a year - in June, September and January. I had taken an application form in February, at which time I was too late for the June admissions. I am told that they give out application forms only if there are vacancies.

I was able to submit an application form, and now the wait is still on. I am hoping they'll call us sometime in June/July.

I had spoken to an Abacus parent a while back - she told me that persistence helps, and she advised me to persist at following up with them. She had similar problems as yours, she could not get an application form, she eventually did get one, submitted it, and after a lot of persistence (personal visits, phone calls), she was told - 'please do not call, we will call you ourselves'. A full year later, they did call her and give her son an admission.

All the best with your daughter's admission!

Regards

Vidya.

Hi,

I have joined this forum only recently and am also seeking admission into preKG at Abacus for my 2.9 yrs old son. We just submitted the form today and were told that they will communicate by March 1st week in case we are selected for interview, observation etc. Can anybody tell me the criteria based on which the selection is made? Also what kind of questions can we expect during interview? Thanx a lot...

 

preithig 2012-01-18 08:25:32

 

Hello,

@Vidya, how come they told that your son is eligible for Sep 2012 admission. whats is DOB?

We had given application for our daughter a year back (when she was 1& 1/2) but still no response from them. we are currently in the US so dont know what to do. My daughter DOB is 16th July 2009.

 

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Preithig,

We too submitted an enquiry form for my son last June (when he was just over a year and half). He is eligible for the admission in June, as per what they told us.His DOB is 08 Sept 2009. As per what they told me during my last visit a week back: if we qualify, they will send us an e mail somewhere towards the middle/end of Feb, and we need to go on the required date and fill up an application form, and also attend an interview. They keep mentioning that this is only based on availability. So, like you, I too am in the "keeping fingers crossed" stage.

BTW: when you mention application: do you mean the enquiry form or an actual application form? Usually what's given is an enquiry form. Do clarify.

Thanks

 Hi All,

I heard from a friend that a new Preschool & Montessori School is about to commence in OMR. The Directress and Principal is UK trained montessori and early childhood specialist who implies the RBT method of teaching. Will inform the exact location soon.

can someone who got admissions in Abacus, pls share abt the interview process...  and feedback about the school if any.. i have applied only for this school for my son..

 

RT175 2012-03-06 16:45:48

 

Even I got an email y'day for the observation session and one-on-one meeting on 16th and 20th March respectively. Seeking admission for prekg for my son. Planning to apply to Bala Vidya Mandir Adyar too but guess chances there are pretty slim too.

I shall update once we finish our obs/ meeting etc at Abacus. In the meanwhile if anybody can give any info on what the selection criteria are and what kind of questions we can expect at the interview, it would be great...

 

ransri 2012-03-06 18:29:59

rgds,

 

RT175 2012-03-07 14:37:14

 

Hi ransri, i got a mail from the id - abacusmontessorischool@gmail.com. You should chk because even the mail i got had gone into spam and luckily i checked!

I have registered for my son for PreKG. His DOB is 24 April 2009. When we went for the orientation program, we were told there are only about 10 seats or so even for his age group and we are actually just hoping luck will favor us!!
