We have recently shifted to Powai and looking forward to sending our 3 yr old son to a day care. I had tried them at a different location and found them very professional, unfortunately they are closed down. Please suggest. Thanks
We stay in Powai. My daughter goes to a daycare called Educare. It's in Powai PanchShristhi complex just opposite Eurokids. Its run by a lady who was a montessori teacher earlier. Its not a very commercial kind of a creche. Its has a very homely atmosphere and I found the lady to be a very caring and motherly person. If you want, I can give you her number. My daughter has been going there for a year now and I am quite happy.
Hi, I am due by this month end.. I recently shifted to Raheja Vihar and, I am finding it real difficult to find a good maalish wali. Can anyone help me. also, can someone give me the contact number of Educare. What age babies do they take care of? Please help. Thanks
Educare take care of kids from the age of 6 months. If you send me your personal email id, I can share the phone no.. etc. with you.
Pls do send me the details. My email id is email@example.com. Also, would you be aware of any good maalish-wali in the area. Am looking at having someone for a first few months. thank you for your help.
I had put my son in The Little campany by godrej. Very professional set up with good deal of manpower, space, well articulated activity calender and all systems in place in terms of giving a feedback of child on a day to day basis as to what they ate, their activity etc.
Hi Manzie, Thank u for ur reply.. Do u have any contact number & address of The Little Company? I can get in touch with them. Thank you..
Hey Jenny...u have lots of time..enjoy this period , will never come back. Anyways..all the best for the new member coming in.
Regarding, The Little Company, is in the Godrej Complex. Chk out at www.thelittlecompany.co.in/.
I am thinking of putting my 1.2 year old son in Little company...i visited the place today.....but fees are very high...howz your experience...is it value for money...safe..i am worried...pls guide...
what is fee structure...i m also thinking about it...
I found The little Company worth it. They have various activites from Karate to crafts to pottery etc which we would have otherwise paid extra and sent our kids. it's kind of one stop solution to working and also concerned parents. A record is maintained on a day today basis of your kids eating/ behavior/ sleeping patterns. They make a note of each and everything you want to know abt you child in your absence. Due to their network and professionalism by the time we reach our kids in emergency they will do the first step and in bombay i feel that's the most required.
Regarding the fees structure, they have different break ups for full day, post school, full day with play school, only activites from 5 to 7 etc ranging from Rs 8500 to Rs 1500
Can someone help me with the fee structure at Educare? I have a 5 month old baby girl and we are planning to put her in a daycare in another 1 month's time.....
Try Vivero International preschool which has Daycare facility , it has started in Hiranandani Gardens. My kids go to the Pune branch daycare and it is good.
Hi Aarti, I have a 3 year old for whom I am looking for a quality day care in Powai. Since you children are already going to the Pune branch of VIvero International, I would like to speak with you and get a feedback on their facility. If you dont mind kindly share your number or email with me on my email firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks a ton in advance.
Hi I have dropped you a email.
Fee structure of Educare is Rs. 3,000 per month. All the best for your decision
I am also looking to shift to Powai - Nahar's amrit shakti most probably. Can someone please recommend a nice and professional day care nearby for my 3 yr old daughter? She is currently going to Eurokids in Gurgaon which is very professionally managed and yet has a homely atmosphere.
You can try Kangaroo Kids in Raheja Vihar or Vivero International in Hiranandani gardens. Both are in Powai and are very professional day cares. Their charges range from 5000 to 8000 Rs per month.
Hi Keeku..Thanks a lot. Will be checking this out. Like I said, we have rented a flat in amrit shakti.
I am joining work in 15 days. I was wondering if I could put my 3 yr old directly in a formal school for nursery in June. She can then go to a day care once the school is over.
Can anyone recommend good schools in powai?
Both schools which Keeku had mentioned has pre-school and after school day care facility. That way you can save on time and efforts in commuting.
Hi I'll be shifting to Nahar's Amrit Shakti shortly. I am looking out for a Nursery cum Day Care Centre for my 2.5 year old son.I want to start sending my son to daycare from May.
I contacted Vivero International but they start functioning only from Mid-June. Kangaroo Kids is the only option I have now.
Can anyone suggest some other pre-schools with daycare facility.
Can someone provide the contact nos. for Educare and Vivero.
I read somewhere that Amber Day Care in Powai is also one of the best day care centres. Can some1 provide the address and contact numbers? Thanx.
Hi , Since I visited Amber day care, I thought I will provide you with a feedback first.. The day care is run out of a residence of a lady. When I visited, I wasnt too comfortable with the way the kids were being handled. The infants/toddlers were hung from the ceiling is a drape type of a cradle. The cloth was soiled and the ones who could walk were also urinating where they sat or stood. In short no toilet training was being done. The family members who stayed at home, had the television on and some kids were sitting right in front, not sure for how many hours. I also had some issues about the cleanliness being maintained in the house.
Good that you have posted this feedback--- That is why I have always been advicing all PARENTS to PLEASE do not go for In-RESIDENCE Daycares / Maids , Professional Daycares are the Best even if they are expensive, after all it is your child's health and comfort which should be of higher priority than the day care fees.
Aarti , I too believe in the same school of thought. Our infants/ toddlers, require 3 basic things - hygeine, training and balance of physical and mental activities. MY 3.5 year old daughter has grow up ina day care. She started going from the time she was 6 months old and I have never compromised with the 3 basic requirements i had in mind for her growing months. Today thankfully we have much better and professionally managed day cares and we should not think twice. I never believed a maid can be there for a child like a mother would be, however a day care environment is much more than what a mother can do for the child.
could you please give me the details of educare. My e-mail is email@example.com. I stay at JVLR and my son is 5 months old. so was looking out for a good day care centre as i need to resume work. Any body else knowing of good day care centres could also pls inform me. Thanks
Hi Aarti, I have a 9 month old baby for whom I am looking for a quality day care in Powai. Since you children are already going to the Pune branch of VIvero International, I would like to speak with you and get a feedback on their facility. If you dont mind kindly share your number or email with me on my email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance.
I have dropped you email with all details.
