Everyone who wants to attend a kindergarten in English in Saint Petersburg, should pass a test (an interview with a school psychologist in a playful format), during which we determine:

  • basic educational skills of the child;
  • his behavioral, emotional, social characteristics;
  • other data that teacher can use to organize the best interaction with the child and the most effective educational process.

According to the test results, the possibility of admission is confirmed, and the age group and class are chosen for each child. If necessary, a meeting with a speech therapist is organized - parents or other accompanying persons can be present (negotiated individually).
