@HappyMama: Apply fresh for 1st standard at vidyaniketan - is that your guess given that vidyasagar is no longer a feeder to them? or do you know for a fact that they no longer have a feeder school from this year? Was wondering if after they moved away from vidyasagar if they have perhaps started some other similar venture themselves or if they have a different feeder now? Important to find that out I suppose, especially if vidyaniketan is the target school eventually?
By the way have 2 neighbors who have their kids in vidyasagar currently and both of them are working mothers. So I guess that is not necessarily true.
Hai, anyone of you know when the interaction session is seclude tentatively?
Hai, does anyone of you know when the interaction session is scheduled tentatively?
Parents, please note that the filled applications need to be submitted before 11.30 AM. Otherwise the school will not accept it.
They did not inform while issuing the application about the timings for accepting the applications.
Many of them turned up after 12 PM and they were sent back today. They have put up the notice after that.
My daughter is studying in Playgroup in Vidyasagar currently. Let me try to clear some doubts that are raised here :
1) There is no preference to working/non-working mothers. I know of at least 7-8 families in my daughter's section where both parents are working. As long as parents manage, the school is fine .
2) There is no preference to Kannada/non-Kannada kids. School encourages parents to communicate in English .
3) Vidyasagar is no longer a feeder school for Vidyaniketan, and Vidyaniketan will have its own admissions from the year 2020 for 1st standard ownwards. The reason for this is both Vidyasagar and Vidyashilp have been bought over by Dayanand Pai, the owner of Century builders. Vidyaniketan is not bought over, and is still being run by the same founding management .
Thanks pskv for ur inputs. It was informative for me
as rightly pointed out by nk1414.,
we need to find out what feeder school vidyaniketan is associated with.,its not possible for a school of that nature to accept all students from a different playgroups without a set std.also we need to check with any insider about any preference or non preference being given to vidyasagar students.since now both the groups management is different there might b a possibility of competition b/w vidyaniketan & vidyashilp.
pls share if any body has any info about this.
Thanks for the info nk1414 and pskv.
How will we be informed about the schedule for the interaction, which will be from November '15 through January '16? Will it be through post, email or phone?
my songs in 14 months now, if i understand correct, the admission cut off (2016-2017) birthdate is 31st may 2014 ?
They told we will be called and informed during first week on November.
If any one of you get the call for interaction, please do share & let me know. Thanks
Can anyone please confirm if "interaction with kids" be held in December?
Do both parents need to be present during interaction with kids? I know they have mentioned "yes, both parents need to be present", but when I checked with one parent whose kid had interaction last year, said there was no interaction with parents (especially with father). Can someone please confirm this?
Any one of you got the call for interaction, please do share & let me know. Thanks
I have submitted my application. On fee, the term fee was 36k last tear. Total 3 terms taking it to 1L +.
There might be refundable deposit, non refundable deposit too.
R they still issuing application forms....plz reply asap...
Is any preference given to vidya sagar students at Vidya niketan during 1st std admissions or is there any other feeder school for Vidya niketan is associated with. Please do share if you people have info about it.
Hi All.. I am trying for admission for my son in LKG class next year.. He is turning 4 years in May.. They have asked me to call in January..Anyone else trying for the same? I am not sure how they will create a waitlist, when does the process start exactly?
Anyone who applied last year and got through the waitlist for non beginner class?
@bhmanu, from this year (i.e., year 2020 1st standard) onwards, vidyasagar has no tieup with vidyaniketan and kids will not get any preference treatment for vidyaniketan. Vidyaniketan says they do not have any tieup for year 2020 and will hold interactions in that year for 1st std admissions. They are ok with the kids coming from vidyasagar also. They are suggesting a montessori education for the kids. But no preferred school/pre-school. This is as per information obtained from both vidyasagar as well as vidyaniketan respectively
Has anyone got call for interaction ?
What is the fee structure for VidyaShilp ? is it similar to VidyaSagar or will there be substantial increase from 1st Std ?
Last year fee was 59k per term that i.e 59 *3terms plus initial refundable deposit of 70k.This does not include transport.This year fee structure is still not known.Waiting for it actually.My son will be going to shill in 2016.
Has anyone got call for interaction, any idea when is the tentative schedule.
Heard that vidyasagar has started calling for interactions.
how do they intimate the call for interactions - mail/phone? From when they have started calling for interactions? pl share your experience
