Age and definition of centre?
Few schools very near the very centre, knowing where work and home will be is going to a far greater factor that looking for a good school.

What age group? Agree with pp. Traffic in Moscow is unlike anything I've seen. The British school is quite central, but then if you have the budget for somewhere like Pekrosky Hills then the kids could literally walk to the Anglo American.

Nurseries up to grade 1 in the centre (within the golden ring) Busy Bees and there's a French/English nursery near Stary Arbat.

Brave time for you to be heading to Moscow OP!

My 2 kids went to the French lycee in Moscow last year and quite enjoyed it. Admissions is explained on the website: www.lfm.ru
It's very central and they have another new building going up on the main site to be finished next year.
I didn't bother to look at the English schools though several UK friends have their kids at the International school of Moscow www.internationalschool.ru There is an ISI report on the school - link on their website.
PM me if you have any other questions.

dear all, thank you for the info.
i have lived in Moscow years ago and i know many things have changed but not the traffic. Bearing in mind that my job will be in city center (near Novy Arbat) i want to look for schools around that. i know that most good schools are outside where good housing locations are (mostly the Angloamerican school etc), however both my husband's and my job do not allow either travelling there twice a day or living so far from work. of course if all else fails will consider that.
DC will be 5 at the time of our arrival, therefore looking for reception/ preschool?
