Till now I am very happy with Gear Foundation. Even my son loves the environment. My son was also earlier in montessori environment for 2 years and continues to be in similar environment. The teachers are evry well trained and is definitely a different school. My son is getting lot of exposure to various activities without pressure like lawn tennis, yoga, dance, nature walks and ofcourse, the montessori environment.
Here is what we paid.
Admission Fees (one time) : 55k
Tuition Fee : 40k (M0- 35k, M1- 40k, M2- 45k, M3-50k, 1-5 class - 55k, 5-7 class - 60k, High school - not sure)
Transportation : 26 K ( from Jaynagar I Block). The minimum transportation is 18k.
Uniform - none till 1st standard
Stationary - 5k deposit ( deduct the balance as the child uses stationary. the balance will be carried forward to the next year)
Apart from these, they havenot asked for anything else like other schools, where in parents are asked to pay Rs.50 or 100 for something or the other.
