Why applying for your school of choice early matters

Many parents wait until it’s too late to apply for their school of choice and this leaves them disappointed when there are no more spaces. This can be avoided if parents apply early. There are also other benefits to applying early.

Benefits of applying early

The first benefit is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your child has a guaranteed spot in a school that works for both you and your child.

The last thing that any parent wants is to be stuck enrolling at a school that is far out of their commute to work or far from where they live.

Last-minute enrolment can also land your child in a school that doesn’t align with your core values.

Another benefit to early enrolment is that you have plenty of time to plan for your child transition into a new school.

For example, if your child is accepted at their school of choice in the middle of the year, it gives you time to save up for school fees, stationery and uniforms without having a negative impact on your cash flow. 

Finally, early enrolment gives you more time to view and get to know your child’s new school, see how it operates, ask all the relevant questions and meet the school’s leadership. You then have time to plan and prepare your child for their new school’s culture and curriculum.
