I also need the same information. My daughter is 4.5 years old
Please check the following schools
Inventure Academy. Follows Ncert n Igcse curriculum.School is up to 3 pm for all classes. I don't think it runs a day care. Pl check
Prakriya.Alternative learning school.
For open learning, you can also check schools based on Steiner/Waldorf philosophy.
The Valley School Bangalore is also considered very good. But it is located in south Bangalore. Admissions are open to children who are 6 yrs and above
@Joeysmom: Thanks so much for the information.
Can you help me with positives and negatives of Inventure, GIIS, Greenwood, Chrysalis, Oakridge? These are some of the shortlisted schools. Else if there's anything till pre-primary in whitefield, it would help too. Headstart admissions are closed I guess. Plus they run only in Kormangala. Thanks.
Positives and negatives are highly subjective depending on what you are looking for in a school.
I suggest you visit these schools personally, try and understand their pedagogy, philosophy and facilities they offer.
I have visited Inventure and Oakridge. I was looking for a school offering a balance between academics and co curricular activities and sports. No rote learning, lower number of students per class, and good infrastructure. Inventure met my requirements.
One negative thing I heard is the perceived lack of discipline. This is hearsay and I don't have any evidence supporting it.
Oakridge offers IB syllabus, has awesome infrastructure. I was a bit skeptical about the quality of teachers and academic rigour at this school. They have day care facility.
I had to move out of Bangalore, so do not have direct experience as a parent in schools there
