Thanks & Best Regards
Hi, I had called the school and was asked to call back in Dec - Jan for info
Where is this school located. I am at Rajajinagar. So want to know the details of this school.
Unfortunately there is no website, however there is phone number, address and email id available.
email : firstname.lastname@example.org
Address : 9, 3rd Cross, Bhoopsandra Main Road, RMV 2nd Stage, Bangalore - 560094, Bangalore
@precious23 : Dec or Jan is it!! Usually the issue applications in nov time frame isnt it..
Some years they have issued the application during october last week, sometimes in novemeber. Not sure how to find out correct info..
there is no website for vidyasagar school
Yes, I had called them on 08042059476 to enquire about nursery admissions (not playgroup) and the lady asked to call back in Dec-Jan.
When I called they asked me to follow up in sept last week .
Hello - I spoke to them today about nursery admissions. The person who spoke to me, told that their usual procedure is to accept Playgroup admissions only. All playgroup children move on to Nursery.
For nursery, only when there is a vacancy, one can apply (for which they had asked me to check and leave the child's name at the office in the March).
I am not sure about when the forms for Playgroup will be given this year. Last year, it was Dec - Jan.
A good idea is to keep following up with them.
Hi, Does anyone know about there selection process for Play Group?
I had called the school and they have asked to check during 1st week of Oct 2015
One of my friends told me that the applications will be given between October 3 to 8 for admissions to play group 2016-17 . Any one interested, might confirm with the school .
my son got through Vidyasagar last year. we used parentree extensively to keep in touch with other parents. Posting this for use of other parents this year. The admissions forms for this year will be issued early from 3rd Oct till 8th October from 8:30 am till 11:30 am. Sunday will be holiday. the eligibility is kids born between 1 June 2013 to 31 May 2014. You don't need to carry anything to pick up the form. Also it's a myth that one should stand in queues from a day before etc. The lines are indeed long but it takes about 2 -3 hours, however one can go at any time within this period. Infact on the third/ fourth day there is practically no queue. also chances of the kid getting in are not atall dependent on when you first the form. it is NOT first come first basis, etc...
Thanks for sharing your experience. when did you collect the form last year? Was it on the first day?
Also i understand that if we collect the forms on the 4th/5th day we donot even get call for interaction. Is this ture??
Can you also please tell me what all they have asked your kid during interaction please?
This will really help the group here....
Thanks for the useful info. I will be getting the application form for my kid for the 2016-2017 academic year. Please let us all know about how your kid interacted with the teachers during his admission.
Any other tips/ details would hellp. Thanks.
Thanks milivyas .
What is the fee structure of the school . How is ur experience in the school.
Hi , do they even consider the application form if the kid is 26 days younger coz my son dob is 26/6/2014 so we r bit confused whether to give a try this year or wait for next year and we don't want to waste his one year or is it worth waiting ??? Pls help.. Tia
I had called school a month back and they asked me to call back by sep end.
But in last week, there was no one answering phone there.
Based on discussion here, tomorrow is when they will give admission forms. Are they open on Saturdays ?
I am planning to go there tomorrow and check. Anyone else planning to go tomorrow ?
They are issuing application forms today (3/10/15) and asked to submit filled form by Monday (5/10/15).
There was a queue of 200+ people at 8.30am. At 10am almost no one at the gate.
from this year onwards, vidyaniketan admission is not guaranteed but visyashilp option still exists.
Yes, we picked up the application form today (3rd Oct) too and have been asked to return the filled in form by Tuesday (06th Oct). No queue at around 11.15am.
Even we figured today that they are no longer a feeder to Vidyaniketan and only to Vidyashilp. Does anyone here know what schools ARE the feeders for Vidyaniketan now? Also, would like to understand what the differences are between the two beyond the obvious of Vidyashilp being more in the 'international' genre of schools and Vidyaniketan being closer to a 'regular' school.
Then we can not opt for Vidya niketan. Is it!!
if this is the case, how to get admission in vidyaniketan???
does it mean there is no feeder school for vidyaniketan and we have to apply directly in 1st standard ?
Yes from the 2016-17 batch VidyaShilp will be the only option for us. We will have to apply fresh for Vidyaniketan for 1st standard.
I have heard many parents say that VidyaSagar does not prefer working mothers, as they will not be able to care for the child completely. How far is this true?
Aren't there any working mothers with kids in VidyaSagar?
With the current fees that we need to shell out for our child's education in a good school, doesn't it becomes necessary for both parents to work.
If we have flexi hours at work and make sure that our child is taken good care of when we are not present, shouldn't that be sufficient?
Your views and experiences with VidyaSagar in this regard is welcome.
Happymama ; is it so ? This is new to me. I hope thats not the case :( ... How many parents are ready to send kids to vidyashilp ? And what about the travel time ? How mych travelling is ok for kids ?
Also i heard that Non kannada students get more preference. Is it true ?
