All the schools you have posted are well known and considered the best in chennai. PS senior and DAV focuses more on acads. CVS is quite crowded. Harishree the acads gets very high after PP2. If you are looking for a montessori school, then look into Harishree. They follow montessori upto PP2(which is equivalent of UKG)

My girl studied in Chettinad for two years( 2nd and 3 rd grade) , after returning from US, the school is good but very crowded. They have yoga, music, dance, swimming everything as part of the syllabus. There are 14 sections for each class with each class having 45 to 50 kids, so the kids do not get opportunity to participate in annual day or events. Otherwise the school is doing good, but the crowd is way too much. The donation was Rs.50,000 when I put my kid, I dont know about the current status.

Hari shri vidyashram is charging 2.5 lakhs donation with Rs.45000 fees structure. Came to know through friends.

Manthan vidyashram does not follow any particular syllabus, I have visited the school, they have no affiliation yet, so it is a mixture of syllabus. They asked for Rs.40,000 donation for my second daughter, Other than hindi, tamil and other subjects they also have to study sanskrit which I personally think is not needed. Since this school has no affiliation they are confusing the kids with all the syllabus

Thanks Anandpriya for your inputs ,i am more looking for the admission to hari shree because of the teaching style but the donation is want haunting me .how abt the discplince at hari shree because my concern this only a high class people would be joining their kid there

Down the line kids mentally would be changed by looking the other kid's lifestlye which is very dangerous .Myself and my wife are mre concern to this point and hesitating to put kid in such a high demanding school which we can never cope up

Hi I am looking for LKG admission in Maharishi Vidya Mandir or Chinmaya Vidyalaya in Chetpet. Please tell me when they issue application for 2013-2014. How much donation they are expecting etc..


 Former member 2012-08-25 12:32:03



The capitation at Harishree is quite high.. But, I think children thoroughly enjoy the experience. Even I am told that at Chettinad the strength is huge and I don't understand how a child would get individual attention. DAV stresses more on aceds. I heard NPS is good. But the fees every year is huge. I heard it is 80,000/- per year. PS is a famous school. Never heard of Manthan. Where is it? How is it?


 Former member 2012-08-27 12:55:52


Thanks Qwerymom for ur inputs

Manthan is at Kottivakkam,they were running a primary school sometime back now they have moved to a big campus.The worrying part is their borad thay say they are mixing cbse and ICSE kind off which i am toally not confident of

You said HSV will enjoyed by kids ?do u have any personal experience on this school,and how abt admission there will it need high recomendation or if we are ready to pay the donation we have a chance of getting admission

@Venmaha-Sorry no clue abt the schools u mention :)


Venmaha 2012-08-27 14:58:48


Hi Skywalkr,

Thank you for your info. If anybody knows good CBSE Schools near Choolaimedu, please post the details for LKG admission.


 Former member 2012-08-27 15:05:18


Hi Skywalkr,

I don't have personal experience in sending my kid there yet.. but I visited the school twice on casual occations and I found that they treated children as children. I liked that aspect very much. I think now, that the school is quite famous, they are expecting donation and recommendation too. I am not too sure about that.

BTW, about Manthan, I am totally not convinced at all. They don't have a proper affliation and how could they run a school? Especially these days , when so many bad incidents about good, big schools hit us like death-bolts..

Hi Guys,


I am looking for admission for my daughter for LKG in 2013 in the following schools:

1. Good Shepherd Convent

2. Church Park

3. Holy Angels

Can anyone guide me when they will issue application form, what is the fees structure and the review of the school.


Thank You

Hi Guys

Iam relocating from Ahmedabad to chennai-ramapuram next week . can any tell me which will best school for pre-kg or LKG ( CBSE) near Ramapuram

iam looking for admission for my daughter (2013-14) she is doing her play school now.


sabir 2012-08-28 14:24:25



Today i called up Baldwin girls and they say admission forms will be distributed in the first week of January 2013. My duaghter is going to be 3 yr on July 2013 and as per them she can get to pre-nursery  only.

I also inquired Bishop cotton and they also said the same. However, they start only from LKG that is the kid age has to be 4 yr at least.

Anyone knows when forms will be distributed for DPS south Bangalore?


AVJ 2012-08-28 16:31:01


Hi Skywalkr

I have heard good reviews about Harishree vidyashram too ... but all are hearsay - I dont have any personal experience. But as everyone says, its capitation fee is too much .... you must atleast be prepared to shed around 2 Lakhs to get an admission into the school. Iam also seeking admission for my little one for LKG next year, but considering the huge amount of donation, Iam little hesitant to admit her in that school. They might have a good education system, discipline and great in every aspect, but the fundamental question of value is deterred when they want huge sum of donation to admit a kid. Of course these days, if you need to enroll your kid in a good school you either need to have recommendation or donation or loads and loads of "luck"

Good luck to all of the parents seeking admision this year !

 Hi everybody,

Any one having personal opinion about GT. Aloha nellankarai, if so pls give updates, which will be very useful.




Daredevil 2012-08-30 17:03:52


Hi All,

Even I wanted to know about GT Aloha, as the age criteria is causing a lot of problems there. Why do they have the age cut off as April 1st instead if may 31st or 1st June? My kid was born on 31st of Nov 2009. As per their calculations my kid is 2 mnths behind now. Wat do i do under such circumstances. She is already attending her pre kg in a play school nearby. She can't waste a year for this by joning the pre kg again. Am i right guys ?


AVJ 2012-08-31 09:31:36



Yes you are right.... usually the cut off should be 31st May or 1st June. Just because each school has a diff cut off date, doesn't make sense for our kid to study Pre-kg or LKG twice. My kid was born end of November too. So if any other school shifts their cut off to beginiing of May or April, we have a problem too !

On gthe lighter side, I think you meant to say your kid was born on on 30 Nov 2009 couldn't have been 31st :)


Daredevil 2012-08-31 12:11:06



That's right. It's not 31st it is Nov 30th. Often get confused as it the last day of the month : )


Chezza12 2012-09-02 17:41:09



Hey i was planning on joining my daughter in Church Park or Good Shepard too for LKG 2013. 

I have doubts about the Samacheer Kalvi Syllabus that is followed in these schools.. They dont teach writing anything till Std 1.. Lkg is just rhymes and songs and Homework for parents.. :)

This might all be fine now but later classes the syallabus hasnt got good reviews.. Everyone is just praying and waiting for the current government to change the syllabus to a better standard...

Im an alumni of Church Park and wanted my daughter to study there with the culture and atmosphere.. Now im confused because of the syllabus...

They normally give out forms by the end of Dec or Jan... They normally interview the parents and then post the selection details.., Some kids were asked basic fruits, vegs, name of parents , etc and some were not...

Keep me posted on your views...


Anuatchennai 2012-09-03 10:55:16



I am so confused,I live in T nagar and my son has just turned 3 in August,we have just shifted from delhi and are living in T.Nagar,need help ,i am not interested in paying donation of 1 or 2lakhs,my beliefs cant allow that,so was wondering where can i apply,NPS is a good school,i have my frinds kids studyng there but no extracurricular activities which i think is a must nowadays,DAV is all about academics,i dont know about my kid but i cant handle so much.

Please list me few more schools and where do i find out about thier forms and admission tests and stuff,r they listed online or shoul i be calling all of them individually?




AVJ 2012-09-04 21:06:37



For most of the schools you have to call them up and find out when they are issuing forms. Even if they issue them online, you have to call them and find out on what date they will be posting them online. One way or the other you have to call them up. Is your kid already going to any school right now for pre- kg ?? The reason I'm asking is because its very difficult to get LKG admission into those schools which admit kids into pre- kg this year. Anyways you can try PSBB t Nagar and kk nagar for Lkg next year, DAV, NPS, Harishree Vidyashram, Vidya Mandir, all for LKG given that your kid has completed 3 years this August . Good luck with your admission seeking process ! 


Anuatchennai 2012-09-06 11:56:23


Thank you AVJ,u r god send,he is going to a playschool Alps in gopalapuram.All this schools that u have listed already has pre kg?

so basically i should focus more on schools which begins with LKG.and should i start calling now?or should i wait till october,websites dont say much.


merajeshk 2012-09-06 14:19:53

dreemzgirl 2012-09-06 14:52:36


Hi @merajeshk

I am also trying for CBSE schools in and around anna nagar/Kilpauk. MVM is my first choice.

I called their office and they asked me to call back in November.


AVJ 2012-09-07 11:23:51


@anu - I'm going to shorten your nAme, hope you don't mind :)

Psbb has pre- kg ! DAV AND VIDYA MANDIR start admission from LKG only ! I'm not sure about Nps and harishree ... Maybe someone else on the thread can help ...

About calling up these schools now or later, it is your call ! You must be prepared to receive poor responses from these big schools, given that there's so much competition and demand for a few hundred seats every year and the schools make the admission process a big ordeal for the parents. Of course, you cannot blame them too ! You can probably call up now and find out when to call back.

Most schools start admission late October November timeframe ! Last year DAV issued application forms around January 20 ! Thats their usual cut off date. Vidya mandir also issues for around nov dec timeframe. Psbb starts around mid November for pre kg, and for LKG around jan feb I guess .... 


merajeshk 2012-09-07 12:18:27


Hi @dreemzgirl,

Please share the MVM's contact number
