Our Admission Process

The admission process is an opportunity for the prospective family and Swadhaa to share information and get to know one another better. We warmly invite and welcome parents who wish to join us.

Choosing a school is an important decision for the parent and the child. We encourage you, as parents, to find out as much, about our education philosophy and beliefs, as possible so that an informed decision can be made. A thorough reading of the website will be a good place to start.

Once you have determined that Swadhaa is the kind of learning space where you would want your child to be, kindly follow the process further.

Step 1: Enquiry and Orientation

Kindly fill the Quick Enquiry form

Once we receive the enquiry, we will invite you to a one-on-one/Group orientation which would assist you in deepening your understanding of Swadhaa as a learning space. This is a fundamental first step in the admission process and we encourage you to take cognizance of it to ensure a good fit between your expectations of an education for your child and the school’s ideals.

It is important that both parents attend this orientation.

Step 2: Child Observation

After you attend the orientation, if you decide to seek admission, apply for child observation by filling – The Application for child observation

On receiving the application, the child would be invited for observation, depending on the class admission is being sought for

  • Kindergarten child will be invited for a minimum of 1 to 2 days (2 hrs each) to be a part of free play where she/he would enjoy age-appropriate activities.
  • Grade child will be invited for a minimum of 2 to 3 days (from 9:00am to 3:00pm) to be with the prospective class.

The following documents to be brought along while coming for observation:

Step 3: Meeting with Admission Panel

After the observation, Swadhaa will intimate you of the date & time for a meeting with the Admission panel. It is important that both parents should be present for the meeting.

During the meeting we will have a discussion on various aspects ranging from addressing the philosophy in more detail to the curriculum on a daily basis to specific queries you may have.

Each application is reviewed carefully by the management and offering admission is at the discretion of the centre.
