A look at the Czech primary school registration process

Just when I’d ironed out all the kinks in our preschool routine, I realized that it’s already time for me to start thinking about Anna Lee’s entry into first grade next September. Although it seems too early to be thinking about next year, in the Czech educational system the move from školka (preschool) to škola (primary school) is a big step. Registration for základní škola (Czech primary school) is held in January and most schools offer an open house day in late November or December, when parents and potential students can visit schools and pick up registration paperwork.
