FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can I sign up my child to Little Dragon School?
First of all, we recommend you visiting our school in person. Your first impression is the best review that you can get. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have during your first visit and we will arrange up to two free of charge testing days that will help you decide whether our program is the right fit for you.
After said testing days we will give you some time so you can make this important decision and we will also walk you through the necessary paperwork in order to complete the admissions process.
Once you sign and turn in all the documentation, your child is ready to attend Little Dragon School!
Does Little Dragon School offer testing days?
Yes! Little Dragon School does offer up to two testing days (mornings) where your child will be able to try out the program from 7:30 AM – 12:30 PM completely FREE of charge.
How are children’s first few days of school? (Adaptation process)
The adaptation process is individual for every child and we approach every pupil in a unique and responsible way. We are aware of the importance of this time period in the children’s development. By experience we know that some kids take longer to get used to the new environment, but most of the time their adjustment period does not take longer than a few days. The child then finds out about all the fun activities they can experience every day at our school and that distancing themselves from their parents for a bit is not so bad after all.
We obviously communicate regularly with the parents of the child during the adaptation sessions including sending text messages and even photos multiple times per session.

How will my child eat at school?
All day dining is provided for our school by BIOENA, a food company that specializes in pre-school dining as well as other educational facilities. BIO quality ingredients but also rich food selection that our kids like to eat are the main reasons we have been partnered with this company for many years. Proper hydration is another key factor to children’s growth and we keep our kids hydrated by unsweetened fruit tea, water or milk.
Is it possible to secure a specific diet plan with our food provider?
Yes it is, BIONEA is able to arrange various dietary plans according to individual requirements. Gluten-free, lactose-free, no eggs, dairy products, soy or milk protein are all dietary requirements that can be set up for your convenience and substituted with alternative ingredients.
