Hi,

I have been hearing about YGP school in mylapore for quite some time. Can any parent share their experiences about the school. Looking out for Pre-KG admission for my son.

Hi AarthiHS,

Is it affiliated to PSBB in any way? The syllabus followed in CBSE right?

Can any parent provide the information regarding the fees for LKG please?

Hi Subhash!

No. It is not connected to PSBB. Ms. Madhuvanthi is Mrs. YGP's granddaughter and the pre-school is named after her, thats all.

 

Hi Lavany!

Why don't you visit our school? You can have a first-hand experience.

Hi AarthiHS,

We are going to visit your school during Dec. My son is 2yrs 7 months and we are looking for a progressive school for him. And we certainly would like to visit your school and know more about it.

Hi Aarthi,

 

I dont know why are u hiding the campus address for the time being. We were told that the new campus details would be announced in the first week of December.  Hope so to wait until December 5 2009 Saturday before which i think you should be announcing the details of the campus. Is the Campus land u have bought has structures inbuilt or will that take another year for them to construct. Kindly address the concern which are in minds of many parents which invariabely has fuelled anxiety in minds of them regarding the future of there wards....

Dear Umesh,

I understand. My. intention is not to hide any information from you - I wish you give the accurate information. Please keep in mind that we strive to work towards the betterment of the school and its students. Their future is as much ours.

I hope I have addressed your concern. We are grateful for your patience.

Hi Srihari,

 

I would not agree to Mr.Umesh as the teaching is not upto standard when compared to other schools in chennai. i have my relatives children who are studying in the same standard as my child, they have more knowledge and the teaching seems to be good. I am planning to shift my child to a different school. I would suggest you to go for a different school than YGP. that is my suggestion. They are just creating hype about their standards.

 

AarthiHS 2009-12-14 11:32:51

 

Hi Gomsar!

Sorry to hear that you have had bad experiences. Have you taken your concerns to the teachers? If you have any problems please do not hesistate to contact our PRO Mrs. Nalini.

 

 Former member 2009-12-14 21:04:15

 

Hi Gomsar,

I would like to tell you that the school follows a different methodology. They aim to improve the creativity and development of child. Like not burdening them. yeah this is something different. Ultimately in life that only matters not bookish knowledge which other schools are dumping on Child head.

Yeah i agree with you that what they promise they have not done. They have built up expectations which is difficult for them to fullfill as they are new to the field. They have to operate from three different premises. Yeah i have faith in the principal as she herself strives hard. Yeah the other teachers i find not upto the standard as they claim. Regarding PRO Aarthi she is very genuine lady. She tries to address the issues of the parents, but it is difficult to manage from three different premises. Everything has to be centralised and if they have campus the working would be smooth.

Yeah one more thing the details of curricullam are not updated regularly. I think i have made matters clear. The school has to deliver what they promise to live up to the reputation of Mrs.Y.G.P, for whom i have great respect. The school administration should focus on internals of how things are going in school as many parents are addressing the issues in private. Hope i feel the correspondent is listening,,,,,

Thanking You,

Umesh Agarwal

Hi Umesh,

The school might follow different methodology, as you have said that they try to improve creativity of the child, i could not see anything as such happening in the school. My son has been studying for 2 years, i regret that i have wasted my child's precious 2 years. You ask any queries, the answer is please look into our website, Did you see the Curriculum which is to be updated weekly is not been updated from October, We are in the mid of December now. How am i to know what is been taught in the school, When i ask my child he says they did not teach anything in the school, they were made to go from classroom to another and they make them sit on the floor, because they do not have sufficient chair in the classroom that is an innocent answer which my child gives.

I too have lot of respect for Mrs.YGP that does not mean her family member would also create history like her. It is just that her name is being used. I am not the only person who is having bad experience, there might be so many parents who might agree with me.

Hi Gomsar,

Yeah the question boils down to infrastructure , workings in the school which i have raised. I mean the management of the school which is difficult because they operate from three premises. Yeah i agree they dont have Diary System and we parents are not aware of what is thought in school. Like what they have learnt in whole year there are no records. Means the Web Site Management is not done properly. I had raised this issue many times in person with the Lab instructor also.

But i receive assurances with no tangible work done. The reply is prompt that matter is being looked into. If you can enrol more parents in the forum to write there experiences that might be eye opener to the management.

I hope Ms.Arathi should look into these matters and redress the greviance in this issues. who knows some other parent may join this bandwagon soon.........If possible call me as the no is underlined below...............

Thanking You,

Yours faithfully,

Umesh Agarwal

Hi Gomsar,

If you have the problems with you, It would be better that you speak to the Principal. I met the principal today morning and she listened and addressed my issues. And she assured me 100 pc that the new campus is getting ready. Also there is communication from the correspondent in this regard on the website.

one more thing gomsar if you are not a parent and you have just registered here to tarnish the reputation of school. then people will not take your advice henceforth. So plz try to register in some different ID and try to do it. If you have problems go to the school and face the problems.

Anyways if you are generally interested what happened my no is mentioned above and you can speak to me.

 

Bye and take care

Umesh Agarwal

 

 

 

gomsar 2009-12-23 13:24:58

 

Dear Mr.Umesh

 

I am a parent and i have more better work to do then tarnishing a school's reputation. I would surely call you when i come to collect the transfer certificate of my child and would also meet you in person. I am no more interested in my child continuing his education in this school, Also i would like to give my view about the sports day held on 5th December, the school even failed to coach the children to perform a five minutes drill. It was just pathetic. I am not interested in your new campus, i saw the present school and got my child admitted, it is nothing to do with the campus but the quality of education that a child gets. It is too late for me to speak to your correspondent or the principal as my decision is final. I have nothing to do with how your school is going to perform henceforth. I would surely advise people who would like to get their child enrolled should not blindly see YGP's banner.

 

 Former member 2009-12-23 22:52:44

 

Hi Gomsar,

The surrounding and environment have a big impact in the child upcoming. It helps in moulding there thoughts physique. So i am very much particular for campus. And regarding if you have made up your mind itz your decision. Regarding the Drill let me tell you how can you expect the students to perform in such a large scale when they dont have campus. Yeah they tried and might be you must have thought they failed miserabely. May be you might be right. But Managing such a event involving so much students its not an easy task. That also i think was done without any prior dress rehersal. Ultimately they tried yeah they failed as you must be right. But what matter is they tried. Failure is stepping stone to success. Frankly i find my son saying about junk food Like choclates, kurkure, chips. He eats them but he says papa its junk food. Let me say you i have not found any other school kids knowing about this.......Thats what they envisage.... Yeah we are going through a change the curricullam are being changed updated. may be the other school you are talking might be very good since they might be very experienced... So it would be better you talk to the principal, correspondent and they might incorporate your views ...... Even i offer them suggestions which they incorporate promptly..............

Its like you are going on a journey to some place, some days are pleasant and some times it hardship. A new school is faced with much criticism as they are always expected to prove themselves while the big names are not even mentioned since nobody dares to question there credibility.......

If they are using Y.G.P tag they have to maintain it and onus lies on them.......

Ok bye and take care

Umesh Agarwal

Some of my friends have put their kids in YGP School and none of them had great words about the school. And they strongly advised me against going with YGP School. And I have known these people for long and I will certainly go by their advice.

karti 2010-03-17 03:22:28

 

hi aarthiHS,

 it is very nice to have a staff member working at the school, participate in this discussion. i like the play way of teaching that the school claims for kindergarden. how is the teaching method after the 1st standard?  Is it the routine method followed by other schools after the 1st standard? or the same play way method.

It its an awful terrible school period!!! Beware of Mrs YGP school!

 

jsv 2010-09-08 17:21:07

 

I heard  that calibre does not have CBSE affiliation yet?  Pl clarify.  This will pose problem for parents with transferable jobs.

 

HariKris 2010-10-06 16:37:57

 

Well Said Gomsar, i think you did the wisest thing by pulling your kid out of the school. I am planning to do the same...I had a terrible experience just like you did and i agree with everything you had to say.

 

HariKris 2010-10-06 16:49:08

 

Well i want to also check with other parents about the building Fund....They charged a building fund when my Kid was in UKG..10,000 Rs. Now they are asking for a building fund again..this is another 10,000 Rs. Well, if i am paying for the building fund and i am paying for the transport 6 months in advance ( yes they charge for transport 6 months in advance) and the school fee - charged 12 months in advance...ufff...looks like i need to petetion my employer for a 12 month salary advance, so i can send my Kid to YGP.

I would like to ask this question of the management of Mrs. YGP....Do they ever pay all their biils on time? I doubt!!!

STAY AWAY, STAY AWAY, STAY AWAY from this SCHOOL...MORE PAIN, NO GAIN and ALL HYPE...That is YGP School for you.
