Transcription: 
Private Kindergarten, first of all, will take a look at your child's birthday and whether or not they fit into that Kindergarten cutoff. Some schools are a little more lenient about the date, some schools are not. You will complete an application. You will go on a tour. You will also have a parent interview. There will be a child assessment and a visit to the preschool to observe your child, and there may be a group assessment at the same time. The school is looking at a whole range of factors when looking at Kindergarten acceptance. In order to get accepted at a school, first of all, you need to be the right fit for that school. If you are the type of family that they have and they are comfortable with you, then often times, family fit can be most important. Not that your child doesn't matter, but some schools are looking for more of the whole package. Some schools really are looking at a child's assessment and how they do on a particular Kindergarten assessment. They will score that assessment and then look at other factors. There is no easy answer about how to get into Kindergarten, but to some extent, it does depend on both the family and the child.
