the teaching is good in sunshine... but the management is not....even if u put ur kid in prekg  there is separate admission for LKG where u have to pay 80k as admission fee.... even that is only for few thats ....but teaching is good....

Sadly the cost issue is there with many of the well known schools. I think the separate admission for LKG is to filter out children who could be having special needs.

How about PSBB OMR, near INFY, is it good?. One of my colleague's son is studing there? I need to check with her?

@Sanhita - Check your previous post and you had enquired about St. Britto. I guess you have already gone through SAN academy thread which would have answered most of your questions :)

Does any know know when Sunsgine would give admission for the 2012 pre kg , heard from the school that it would be in Feb 2012 , but by that time almost all the schools would have completed admission .Is it hard to get admission in sunshine , would recomendation work ,

I live in madipakkam and the closest good school seems to be Sunshine , do you think i may have other choices .

any information would be helpfull , pls reply . Thanks

In velachery you have limited schools. Sunshine seems to be better than DAV and ponvidyashram. Though the fees is high, you need to see the distance also. if you are staying in velacherry and you want to send your kid to PSBBM school, think of the transporation cost. they charge around 7000 to 8000 per term. for that you can pay extra money to sunshine and put your kid there. both school are new and they will have challenges in getting good teachers.

Any idea about admission procedure in sunshine? when will they open admission?...Heard that they have primary school & secondary school in different campuses...Will the students from primary automatically moved to secondary school?


parthan91 2011-11-17 15:35:00


@Kaviis , Thank you for the reply , Yes even tough Sunshine may be a bit costly as you said copared toe few other schools, most of the good schools are far away and we would have to spend money on transportation .

I would love to know when Sunshine would give out applications,


Nivedya 2011-11-25 16:14:52


Same here, any idea when Sunshine will start admission this year?

 @muru, u will easily get a sit for pre kg. But that doesnt mean ur kid  will be selected for lkg. Its depends on what, sorry i dont know. its all depend on management. Honestly they follw no rules. They made rules and they dont follw that at all.

So getting a sit for lkg is nothing but a gambling inthat school.But if u put ur kid from toodles ur kids sit is confirm.

This is allabout management.

As faras the teaching is concern, its really really good. Teachers r well educated and they are doing their best. My kid was in Sunshine jst for three months and i had seen a lot of improvement....  

@muru,kavis,nivedya, r u all local people?



Murugavel 2011-11-27 07:37:30


@Leo: Thanks for the answers. Does that mean they have LKG to +2 in senior campus & only pre-kg in their primary school? Moving from primary to secondary is not guarenteed?



umabala 2011-11-27 16:04:31


Hello all, enrolling in PreKG does not mean that your kid can continue in the same schoo when it comes to Sunshinel. LKG admissions are fresh meaning which the prekg kids have to undergo an interview and if they qualify, they would be eligible for LKG in Sunshine afterwhich they can continue their schooling till 12th unless otherwise you have reasons to opt out of the school.


leo 2011-11-27 20:38:38


 yes what ever uma says r true. But sunshine do have a first come first serve method. WHich they follow there own way. All prekg kids dont get a chance to undergo the interview. what iam trying to sayis that.. its ultimately management decision who will be in and who not. and once selected for LKG will continue till 12th unless what uma says.

 Hi ,

I'm looking for Pre-kg admission to Sunshine for 2012-2013. I am currently in US and will be relocating sometime in April -May. Can anyone tell me when Sunshine would give application forms for pre-kg?

Thanks !!


RishiSuma 2012-02-11 23:09:03


Hi All

I had been a silent reader of this forum since its inception. Can someone share information about the fee structure for Primary classes LKG/UKG. I have heard education is costly here but never have been able to find the exact fee structure. And how is it for senior classes. Is the school adopting fun based teaching methodology or are very strict and classroom oriented ? Any information will be of great help

Thank you



large 2012-03-09 11:52:54


 pls let me know...the prekg,lkg and ukg classes are also running on puzhutivakkam campus or seethapathy nagar...


large 2012-03-09 16:09:43


 Also Please let me the commnication standards are???the teachers shouldbe good for that?also they have any tie up pgs with british council or anything???



umabala 2012-03-09 16:54:49


KG classes are functioning from Seethapathy Nagar. To my knowledge, the communication standards are good and I do not think they have tie up with anyone in those grounds as yet.


michaelrenny1 2012-03-12 14:35:03


@nr1811:think twice before joining ur kid in sunshine..


there are two admission process in sunshine.... for lkg there will be another admission fee and selection proces...


Deepthi123 2012-03-12 15:43:52



My kid is in toddler in sunshine. The school is really very good in terms of communication, teaching. Kids do enjoy their time at school and the teachers are very friendly. We get feedback about our kid's performance and how they interact. The teacher takes care to highlight the kid's strength and even the aayas are very good. Hygiene and discipline is given the first priority.

Yes there are two admission process, one for prekg and other for lkg. However, if the child has studied prekg in sunshine, he/she gets the first priority over the new admission.



large 2012-03-12 16:12:43


 I am planning to admit the kid directly to lkg this i need to worry abt it...what other things i need to be careful with sunshine????i am from madipakkam...ram we have transport facility  to sunshine seethapathy nagar?how much that costs?any idea ...pls help...


umabala 2012-03-12 17:49:55


@large - Have other options as well. Do not rely ONLY on Sunshine :) All the best for your school hunt!


Deepthi123 2012-03-12 18:48:23


 Yes there is van service available.... i dont have idea about the fare of van. I can say that they handle the students carefully and see that all are seated properly and also assist them while getting down.


leo 2012-03-12 18:55:25


@large, what ever deepthi wrote is so correct. As per as the communication, teaching and hygiene is concern , i believe , sunshine is no 1. My kid studied there jst for 3 months and i had seen a drastic change in his behaviour and communication. Bt fortunately or unfortunately, i dont khow , he didnt get a sit for LKG. But yes if ur kid is in Sunshine from toodles then its a confirm sit for LKG. And if it is a LKG admission , well u can get a sit if u r ready to pay extra fees. (though dont know hw much). But agn saying education is really good at Sunshine . there is no 2nd thought on that. What ever u do , do wisely. Clear everything before admission.Be careful. Otherwise in the middle of a year u have to jump around here and there. so understand everything very clearly and say everything clearly before u put ur kid in "SUNSHINE"  

All the best.....dont want anyone go through the bitter experience what i have gone through....


large 2012-03-12 20:21:26


 I really confused ....everyone is saying ..sunshine is a good one....some oneexcellent..


everyone is saying be careful while choosing sunshine...i am not undersyanding the logic behind that......



any one explain me  regarding this??

Note:  money is not a problem ...



Deepthi123 2012-03-12 22:23:07


 There you go.... One is money and the other is regarding two times admission.... This is because if you get admission in prekg , they don't confirm your admission for Lkg. And also, donation in Lkg is higher when compared to other schools. I don't see any other issues. Once your child is admitted in Lkg, then it's well and good. You can go ahead and join your kid in sunshine. This is my viewpoint.
