Minimum Age crieteria to enroll a child in KG-1

Dear All

Can anyone tell me what is the minimum age criteria to enroll a child in KG-1.

As my son will be 4 years old in October 25th this year. But I am told that he can only b enrolled in playgroup. I don't want to put him in play group.

Wish to see ur proper guidence.


Usually the criteria for a child in KG-1 for both British and American Curriculums here in Qatar is that the child should be 5 yrs. old before September 1.

Unfortunately your child's b-day is October that is why they are not accepting him for KG-1.

But maybe if your child has the skills for KG-1 then you can ask the registrar and the principal for an interview or test to allow him for KG-1. It's a long shot but it's worth a try.

for british system the cut off date is 31 August.

the minimum age is 3 for KG1 in british system but the cut off date is 31 August.

4+ for kg1
