I've recently shifted to attapur area and my kid is 2 n 1/2 years old (exactly). I'm loking for a playschool near attapur/hederguda area. I've heard of Bachpan(attapur) and Eurokids(upapally). I went to bachpan attapur,but it was too conjusted. Please help me out. Also, advice me if I'm sending her to early??
Wats the age criteria for sending a kid to school/preschool.
Hi Tuhi ,
According to research , docs say that kids should be sent to school only after 3yrs. We shouldn't send the children to even playschool
There are schools who are taking children as small as 1 1/2 yrs in playschool. Most of them take at the age of 2 or 2 1/2 yrs.
2 1/2 yrs is pretty good age for a playschool. When ur daughter completes 3yrs , u can put her into Nursery. I have put my younger daughter in playschool when she was of 2 yrs in june'09. But most of her friends were of 2 1/2 yrs in Playgroup.
As a thumb rule ,the child should be 6+ when he or she comes to first std. It has been discussed in many posts here .
Are u talking about Hyderguda near Himayat Nagar in city ? Attapur and Hyderguda are two corners of the city. Where do u plan to stay ? May be u can google the playschools in that area and visit the schools personally as this would be the first school for your daughter . You have got to be very careful in selecting pre-schools or playschools as some parents have shared bad experiences in this forum with playschools. They were not upto mark and were duped in many aspects.
I'm in hyderguda, but my postal address says "attapur, hyderguda 500048" its near RTA office, pillar no 143 of the PVN Rao expressway.
I went to eurokids also in upar pally(pillar no 201) n was satisfied with the staff. But one problem is there - here is no playground in anyplaygroup in this area....anyway...i will have to manage. Kidzee is too far so will not be going for it. There are bachpan, eurokids, hello kids, firststep,tinyscholars......list is endless...
I;m looking for a place where she spends some quality time having fun n learning, without any writing till she turns 4 or so...some schools have started writing too....its painful to see kids writing ABC..as early as 3...anyway, i liked eurokids....may be i will go for it.
Thanks for all your help.
Euro kids is known to be a stress free school. 3yrs is too early for children to get into writing. At this age , a small play area is sufficient. You don't have to look for a big play ground. As this would be her first steps into school , she should have a warm and homely atmosphere where there are good teachers, care takers and many friends to play with , in a neat and healthy environment.
Whr exactly do u stay? i stay at Janapriya. Wld like to discuss on the Eurokids upparpally. I have a 3 yr old kid and am looking at nursery admission.
Hi Tuhi & Lavanya,
Even i am staying at Attapur and looking for a play school for my son who is 2 years. Suggest me whether is it good to join Euro Kids or Hello Kids. What is your openion about montessori schools.
There r Bachpan, (pillar no 121), Eurokids (pillar no 200), Hello kids , KIDZEE n few more like tiny scholars n first step. The fee structure is almost same (20-25k + transport if provided). The facilities r almost the same n the syllabus (i hate to use this term for kids as small as 3 yrs old) is somewhat less in eurokids (personally, i like it). So, u just have a look in them n decide according to ur priority and criteria.
For a 2 1/2 year old, it is important to enjoy going to school and have good company. Company is - finding kids who your child would like to play with. Oh, yes, they do notice who they like ... Also, talk to the teachers and ayas, and see how you feel! And also check if the premises are kid-safe ...
Couple of new schools came up just recently near Pillar 143 - Kidzee and Butterflies. These are to add to the big list of other schools Tuhi mentioned above. Any reviews on these ? Am planning to get an admission for my 2 and 1/2 and am looking for a good school near JanaPriya ?
