Hi Kai and Ananya,

My elder son is also studying in DAV Velachery. The student-teacher ratio is bad. In his class it is 1:45!

I dont use transport as i reside closeby.

Inter-mural competitions are good. They do not encourage or promote "high-class" extra curricular activities like horse-riding or skating that some of the other expensive schools do. However, for spoken abilities, dance, music they do have competitions once a year and my son has been able to perform in those. Occasionally they also choose for inter-school competitions. But considering the strength of the class, only few students get this oppurtunity.

Admissions to STD 1 are happening as in my son's class 2-3 new students have joined. Depending on the availability they would give admissions i suppose.

Teaching quality is not up to the mark. The teachers get angry quickly and do not teach with patience. maybe higher classes teachers are good, but in lower classes, the teachers do not have experience / training to handle small kids is what i feel.

Hi Kai & Sita,

Thanks for yor reply.


Even i dont have more options in Velachery. Howz the syllabus for pre kg ? I heard even for Pre kg they give more home works and conduct  monthly exams  as well.

Have you tried for admission in Ponvidyasram??

Hi ananya,

First short list ur priority.we opted for dav only because there is upto 12 std , distance and fee structure,we dont need to pay 1 L for pre kg itself.Regarding ponvidyashram i heard only upto1 or 2 std at velachery.coorect me if i am wrong.need to shift everything for higher classes.we reside in our own house so we ruled out that option.there are many websites  get first hand experience.please share with me.

Friends,My son is studying pre-kg so I would like to share my experience here.. Teachers student ration is 1:20 !!!(Since they restricted admission this year) Transportation: I'm around 3 KM radius no school transportation to my I’m with my own transport. Extracurricular: Not much for pre-kg even i too don't want my kid to force now..for high school,  there was some inter-school competition and other competition was organized by school and itself and i received messages from school saying their school students won some competition. Parents meeting was held once in the last 3 months..i felt it was good. you have option to communicate to teachers through students dairy(teacher responding to it, with my experience I can say this). This new premiseswas opned this year so there is some construction going on still..but school did take care of their students well. Parents will receive SMS via mobile for general correspondence.

Hi Niviea,

Sounds good! Thanks for the reply.

Keep me posted on when they will issue application forms for Pre kg 2013-14 batch.

Thanks Again!




Niviea 2012-09-18 13:20:39


Hi Ananya,

D.A.V Velachery will usually publish admission notification on dec. 2nd sundays through newspaper only 'THE HINDU'..Last time they delayed and one on jan 23rd they issued the application form with one week prior notification on school notice board.

So check with the school around nov.-dec.

other schools usually annouce around november e.g. Navadisha,D.A.V adambakkam..


Ananya26 2012-09-18 14:34:52


Thnk u so much Nivea for the info.


kai 2012-09-19 03:07:08


Hi niviea,

It is good to hear from u that student teacher's ratio is 1;20.are u sure I dont expect kid is in lkg his class strength is 42,That too not a problem for me because i know it before.they restrict my 2 son admission and not aiiowing to talk to the higher authorities.we even gave a written communication which ended in lower level itself.that irritates us.Iam a B.Ed graduate previously worked as in break.but i am taking tution classes for some students of perrsonel opinion is whatever be the school if your kid is smart they will shine.i think u noticed a boy of class 4 won state level price by vellamal school.he is one of my student i taught him for 1 month summer class.from his mother i came to know that the credits goes to private tutors not to school.I just shared my opinion.if it is not accepted please ignore it.

Niviea 2012-09-20 10:00:05


Hello Friends,

@Kai,I am able to understand your situation. i can say you are not alone, many of us facing this age issue during admission..even my friend kids (twins) are undergoing LKG twice due to short of 1 week.  the statement from CBSE board is "On the first day of the academic year, your child should have completed five (5) years for admission into Standard 1" (ref.

Coming to extracurricular I do not want my pre KG kid  (same up to std. 3) to be overloaded apart from playing with his friends in school. My motive is he need to mingle with his friends, need to develop common manners, be flexible with his friends (need to share his things),etc.. .For practicing solgan,playing musical instruments,singining,dancing,etc.i really don't want to depending on school.I would rather prefer private arrangement Yes.Your student is one among the list of school success story.I appreciate your effort. Admission procedure: Added to kai’s list ·         community certificate (either father or mother)·         other criteria depending upon individuals like siblings, govt. officials,need to produce relavent doc's.-   if Hindi is your second lang. then either father or mother should posses Hindi in school or college(all should be attested by a gazetteer officer)

Niviea 2012-09-20 10:13:57


For get to tell an important point

School is not entertaining any test to kids during pre-kg admission (i hope even it applies to LKG).After admission process completed along the way to meet principal, my kid was suppose to answer only one question , that is

What's your Name? and they asked to take a chocolate..

you see this will be difficult to your kid to grap a chocki?


kai 2012-09-20 11:50:31

Thank you all, I am looking for LKG admission to my daughter at DAV public school Velachery for 2013-2014. Whether they will take admissions for LKG as i heard few schools not giving admissions to LKG. Also if anyone got idea about when they are giving admission forms.


Sadhaya 2012-11-22 13:04:41


When I went to school in person last month, the security said we have to look to the sunday The Hindu paper for admission notification (any Sunday in December advertisement will be placed). For all classes this is the procedure. Lets wait for the ad.


Amarr 2012-11-29 08:58:24


Thanks Sandhya, even i got the same information and also they told mostly Dec 2nd week they will publich the dates. We can call again by Dec 2nd week and check Hindu newspaper on Sunday's.
