Are you ready to start the next school year?
I can still remember when my son is still a toddler and I planned to enroll him to school. There are a lot of things I considered at that time, like is he ready to mingle with other kids, is he going to sit still and listen to his teachers and the list goes on.
Other questions on my mind was the tuition fee rate, what is the teaching style of the school (traditional, progressive, montessori etc), the location of the school, the school’s set up in case of emergency and a lot more.

I have no knowledge of what was the school requirements at that time. I didn’t even know that a child should be 5 years old by June 1 of the calendar year to be accepted in kindergarten. I only considered checking them when I already decided where to enroll my child.
So if you are a new mom that will enroll your kid for the first time, let me tell you already that one of the school requirements that you need to take note and get now is a copy of your child’s PSA Birth Certificate. There are a lot of ways to get this, but the easiest one is of course to order it online.
If you are a busy mom and there are a lot on your plate, then I highly suggest to just order online and just wait for it to be delivered at your door. It is hassle free and more convenient. I did it a lot of times not only as school requirements but as a passport requirements too, do it here – PSA Helpline
Besides the birth certificate, you should also prepare 2×2 and 1×1 pictures of your kid/s. Other than that, I want you to relax and enjoy the journey with your kid. It will be hard, it will test your patience but I believe you can do it.
