My kid will be 3 years and 7 months in June. The cutoff for most of the schools, in Bangalore, is 3 years and 10 months for LKG. I have been asked by Samhita Academy to give an undertaking that in case there is an issue with the cut off at a later stage - (Grade 1), then they should not be liable for any action. 
Is this the norm at other schools? Can anybody who has kids born in the months of October/November help me!!

My kid too has same problem. She is October born and is continuing in a preschool. In lkg Big schools usually ask for 3.10 or 4 years for lkg. It's better to go slow than pressurise the kid as classmates will be older, physically and mentally capable. I will put my child in a regular school next year and don't mind repeating lkg

On the other hand - It is just a matter of 50-60 days. What if the baby was premature? Just playing devils advocate - It is sounds weird that the ed system has not evolved and is still looking at calendar years.

Hi Parents,

I am experiencing the same dilemma now. In fact for my kid they admitted in samhita academy in Pre KG/Nursery now.

She is already going to nursery in OI Playschool and is aware of the usual alphabets, numbers & rhymes.

She will be 3 years 9 months and they are not considering her for LKG.

Confused if I should look at other schools which accept 3 yrs 6 months criteria for LKG ...please advise
