Hi evryone! My son is 6 yrs old n is currently going to Bishop Cotton School (UKG).Im confused whether he should continue with  the school or change to Vidya Niketan? If the choice is VNS then which one should be given a priority Vidya Niketan or Vidya Shilp school for an all round development?

Thank you..

Hi Nona,

I'm looking out for LKG for my Kid and Bishop Cotton was one of my preferneces. Any reason why you are opting out of Bishop Cotton ? Is the schooling not good?

Hi Nona,

 Even i have opted for Bishop's for my son for LKG, any reason behind changing school.Please let us know as i have left with only 2 options either  Bishop's and bethany's .

Hi Hriday,

I was checking Bethany's website which mentions that the applications are already over. Is it true???


Hriday 2009-12-16 15:23:51


Did u check its for mentesorri or LKg..my hubby got application for bethany today only


kjhari02 2009-12-16 16:11:37


Aaah.. I get the point. That must have been for montesorri (although its not mentioned there at all) I'll have to get the application tomorrow.

Any idea how much the cost is and while submitting what and all we have to attach with the form?


Hriday 2009-12-16 16:26:27

Bethany already started like from last week. And FAPS starts in the first week of January. FAPS do not issue any forms. They just put out the format of the application and we are supposed to create the form and submit it.
