Sindhi School has put up a notice on the gate that the application forms for Nursery 2015-16 will be issued in Dec 2014. The age criteria is Dec 2011 to Dec 2012 born. In Vidyasagar, the starting level is Playgroup, then Nursery followed by Prep 1 and Prep 2 (equivalent to LKG and UKG). But can some one mention if Nursery in Sindhi school has 4 levels. Each and every school seems to have their own nomenclature in naming the pre primary eduction levels and hence it is a little confusing. Any pointers will be appreciated.
Also, can some one whose children are studying in this school give some details on what they feel about this school, infrastructure, academics, extra curricular activities, interation/interview process etc. The existing posts on Sindhi school date back to 3 years and hence I am requesting for the latest information. Thanks in advance.
I checked with a parent in my apartment whose children are studying in Sindhi school. It turns out that in Sindhi school, the pre-primary levels include Nursery, LKG and UKG.
A child born in Nov 2012 for instance, would join Nursery in Jun 2015, LKG in Jun 2016, UKG in Jun 2017 and 1st std in Jun 2018. So the child will be 5.5 years when joining 1st std. With Vidyasagar, the same child will join Playgroup in Jun 2015, Nursery in Jun 2016, Prep 1 in Jun 2017, Prep 2 in Jun 2018 and 1st std in Jun 2019 (i.e., 6.5 years).
If you consider the other end of the age criteria for Sindhi school, a child born in Dec 2011 would be around 6.4 years of age when joining 1st std in Sindhi School. Since the CBSE age limits for 1st std vary between 5 years to 7 years, the age criteria given by Sindhi School is well within the CBSE criteria.
