I am looking for a preschool for my 4 year old son, who will be going to LKG next June. We are moving to Bangalore in May, and will be living in the Bangalore North area. I have read some good reviews about Neev and mixed reviews about Gaia on this forum. If anyone has more specific feedback, please do let me know. Any other good preschools in the area? Also, what are the yearly fees in these schools - there has been more than one comment on Neev saying it is extremely expensive, how expensive are we talking about?

Thanks for your feedback in advance, I would like to have as much information as possible before I come there in person and check out the schools.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have been to both, both seem  good,in terms of hygiene, student teacher ratio,extended timings etc.

Neev charges abt 1.5 lakhs per annum while Gaia is lower.

You can check their websites and call the coordinators for the latest rates.

All the other local preschools charge around 20000 to 50000 per annum ,but have limited hours.

Thanks for the info. Do you know of other local preschools that are good, even if they don't have the extended hours?

Thanks!

Hi,

Neev's fee includes a breakfast - which is a good nutritious, homely snack. 

And i am not sure about the 09-10 year, but it is about 1.38 or so with the extended day care option - 8:30am to 3 pm including breakfast but not lunch; and it would be about 84k without day care option (for the toddler program).

The experience is good for both the kid and the parent and there is over-all development focus.  Even during the extended day care time, there is interesting curriculum  apart from the nap time in the afternoon.  The teachers are very warm, tend to stay with Neev and reflect the school philosophy in all ways.  My daughter cherishes her school time a lot and a mention of school teacher's name always cheers her up.

Finally, nothing like you and your kid visiting the school and talking to the coordinator.   All the best,

Cheers,

Sumo
