    Magic castle nursery school : any feedback?

    Hi everybody,

    I'm relocating to Moscow from London in a couple of months and I'm looking for English nursery schools for my 3 year-old.
    They have to be central (within the Garden ring) as we're planning to live in the center (my husband will be working in the Paveletskaya area).

    So far, I've contacted both P'tit Cref (Arbat) and English Nursery School (Dobryninskaya) which seem fine and have good feedback, but I can't seem to find much on Magic Castle (Tvetsnoy branch). Does anybody know this school?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi, welcome to The Machine

    The nursery/kindergarten feedback seems to be good:
    https://m.babyblog.ru/community/post/education/1711522
    http://ratings.7ya.ru/kindergartens/item4558/
    http://www.lisasha.ru/anglijskie-det...-v-moskve.html
    http://www.vsesadiki.ru/detskiy-sad-...nyi-zamok.html

    What's not so good, the feedback is dated mostly 2013th and their web adress http://www.kidclub.xbridge.ru looks dead

    Hi Andy!

    Thanks a lot for your thorough research it's very kind of you
    (though I thank God for Google translate otherwise I wouldn't have been able to read a thing!)

    But why are you saying their web address looks dead?

    Mon plaisir, Madame, but it wasn't difficult - just went to yandex.ru and typed: детский сад magic castle

    Get used in advance - the most of really valuable info in RF is (only) in Russian.

    Because yesterday evening when I wrote the post, their web address produced only message from hosting company - "this domain is parked by... " and the name of the hoster. Now it really works... maybe they switched the physical server off yesterday, or had the maintenance pause, or whatever.
    Anyway, and it's one more hint, don't write them e-mails now - at first call them and talk about everything regarding their daytime regime, educational program/activities, personnel, payments, enrollment, vaccinations needed in RF (this is very important) etc. First personal/voice contact is very important. Further details you may do by e-mail.

    I would personally recommend them! I worked there for a couple years and always thought it would be a nice place to put a child. They mostly speak English all day, more so than Russian, so children learn quickly. It's not the best place to work but on the opposite end the kids get a pretty sweet deal.
