We will be having elementary school interviews for my daughter soon.

Can anyone offer insight as to what to expect?

Will my husband need to take off from work for the interviews?

What questions do they ask?

Will my daughter be present ? And if so, what will they be asking her ?

Any other info or tips appreciated!!!

TIA!

My daughter is in kindergarten in nachlas. Yes dh and daughter were there. Mrs smith was very sweet and friendly to my daughter. They gave her something to color and a small prize. They did not ask her anything of importance...
They are known for asking about filters so be ready for that question. They also make sure that all the fathers are full time white shirt wearers. Idk if they will adk that to you or call people for info afterwards and ask. The Robinson's are very friendly and nice at the interview he will likely talk to ur husband about his job. Mrs will ask you who you know in the school and why you want to send there and they will give you a tour after..

Eta- rabbi Robinson, mrs Robinson and mrs Smith are present. Mrs Robinson isnt very involved in the school she just helps with interviews as far as I know. Mrs smith is very hands on now that my dd is in the school I see it 1st hand.

My daughter told me my grand-daughter had a 40 minute interview!

They showed a book with pictures of Judaica and asked child to identify object
and what yom tov.

Like what's this? Menorah What Yom Tov? Chanukah
What's this? Esrog What Yom Tov? Sukkos

Also asked child to cut out shapes.

30+ years ago when my kids were going to school interviews my son was asked to identify colors of jelly beans. Menahel was impressed that when given a jelly bean my son made a shehokel without prompting. Son was also asked to draw a circle.

My daughter was shown pictures in the book "is it shobbos yet?" and asked to say what was happening in the pictures. "girl is vaccuuming" "girl and mommy in grocery store."

Hatzlochah.

They just want to see you kid is normal in intelligence AND BEHAVIOR.

Make sure your kid knows how to sit still, not touch things and not interrupt - only speak when spoken to.

Practice!

Schools also want to check out how you dress to see if you are their type.
