I have started a new thread for parents whose children got selected at Kumarans DKS. We can form a parent community.
hi smitha,my kid got selected in kumarans-DKS,we attended interview on 10th after u .congrates.
Same here..Attended Interview on 10th :)..congrats dears
there was only one question in the survey right? about confirmation on nursery admission(YES or No)
Hi all, I look forward to meet all of you.
Is your daughter the one who asked my daughter her name while they were all looking at the aquarium?
My Son Advay has got selected for DKS.Finished the survey.
Have DPS intw scheduled for 22nd.Will attend the intw since have already paid 600 application fee .
Last worrying thing abt kumarans is that my application has changed automatically the option for 1std from cbse@mallasandra to cbse@dks.I am particular abt mallasandra.
If i get in DPS i will check with kumarans if mallasandra option is open or nor and based on that will decided whether to reject ot accept kumarans.
Your thoughts !?
@smitha22, i was also there at 12 PM on 10th. As for the survey, it was only to confirm whether you will actually put ur child now or not(Yes/No)
@itsmevids, Yes I answered the survey 'yes' that I will be making admission.
@Manju, I opted for ICSE Mallasandra and option remains the same. Why are you particular about Mallasandra? Is it closer to you house?
My son has got selected for DKS. We attended the interview on 7th Oct. My sons application shows CBSE@Mallasandra only.
We have opted for Doddakallasandra for my son from 1st std. apart from infrastructure what is the difference between these two branches? is there any difference between quality of education, faculty, extra curricular activities etc?
My Application also shows CBSE@Mallasandra.
I dont think there is any difference in the quality of education in the two campusses, however infrastructure wise Mallasandra campus is way better than DKS campus.(maybe because it is newer). My older daughter studies at Mallasandra and the campus is really nice and beautifully architectured.
@smitha22: I have also given a "yes"
Once the survey is done we cant go back n see wat we have selected na... i found it a littl weird!
true, i selected the option in a hurry as there was timer and also i thought there are many more questions to answer. Now, i don't have any options to go back and check what i selected
@BSJ - even me too...i think they shd let parents see what they have selected!
i have sent a mail to their help-desk. no reply as of now.
ohh okay!! i guess they ve holidays till 20th of this month.. reply can be expected only after that...anyways..keep me posted on this if you get any repy..it ll be of great help!
Regarding extra curricular activities, at Mallasandra, they have swimming for kids from 4th standard onwards which is compulsary for all the children. I am not sure about DKS having a pool there.
I don't think there was more than one question. It just had one question about confirmation of admission.
we are ok if it is about additional facilities. i hope there won't be any discrimination in terms of teaching. i heard they take kids from DKS campus to Mallsandra for some of the activities.
i understand that during UKG, they give one more option for kids to opt for mallasandra. i hope they continue to do it. Changing Manju's kid's admission from Mallsandra to DKS worries me.
DKS is closer to us .We stay in kumarswamy layout.
The main reason is I do not want my kid to travel in between school hours to mallasandra for extracurricular activities.DKS does not have the pool nor tennis ( i am not sure about other sports).Taking them to private places after school hours is very tedious and strict no-no atleast if given a option.Mallasandra is 10 times bigger than DKS.
In terms of teahcing i have heard mallasandra is better eqipped because it has teachers who are trained for both cbse and icse syllabus and hiring has been done with higher standards comparatively.
I shall reach out to the management this month end to check if they will give me a option again in ukg and decide once i get to know ( all this if we get through DPS !:) ).
Congrats to all the parents whose kids got selected to Kumarans. Our daughter has also got selected to Nursery @ DKS. We had chosen ICSE@Mallasandra and the application is still showing the same. There is no change.
congrats to all!good to form this group and be in touch..:)
had one question, for kids who are in DKS, do they need to go to the Mallasandra branch for extra curricular activities?
not for all extra curricular. they have basket ball, volley ball courts. only for special activities like swimming, they take kids to Mallasandra from 3rd std which is compulsory for all kids.
if u get any information on - another chance in UKG, please let me know.
Dear All my son got selected and we opted for cbse @dks. He is 2 yrs and 3 months now. Should we put him in play school before joining in kumaran's ?
please check FAQ section of DKS website. they say it is better if the child has experience of play school. but it is not mandatory.
@BSJ thank you may be will put in 3 months before the admission.
can any one of the selected dks parents let us know what is the exact fee structure for nursery and by when should it be paid, it would be helpful
For the year of admission:roughly Rs. 76000
from next year onwards: LKG & UKG : Rs.40000
Fees will be more from 1st std onwards..still very reasonable considering the average market trend in Bangalore..
hope that answers you query.
