The first day [09.06.11] was very nice of its kind we got warm welcome from the staffs there. The administrator told us as the school timings will be from 11.15 to 12.15 for first two weeks, then this will be gradually increased.

But yesterday [ 13.06.11 ] a school staff informed us, as they are going to operate 2 batches for Play School & Pre KG. Hence the timings will be for 2 hrs only for this entire year & the parents were advised to contact their Head Office for further enquiry.If any parents have come across similar experience plz do share.Ram.

Today (15.6.2011) was the first day for my son. We have transferred to Nandanam Branch from west Mambalam this year.  He is in UKG .

To our surprise, there were only 5 kids at the school today. The administrator told that some of the kids are getting transferred from other centers , admission is still on and hence the strength could increase.

This week we were told class will be for an hour (9-10) .The interiors are yet to be completed and we were assured it will be done by this week. This branch is small when compared to west mambalam. There are separate class rooms but are small , work is still on. If the strength is less this should be fine.  There were three teachers present.

We were told that desks to the kids will be provided by Monday. Hoping that things will be ok by Monday.

Hi All,

    My kid goes to A shoolc at ashok nagar in UKG .

I got SMS in April for a week to pay the fees till 2nd week of April and I really did not botherd since was busy with personal things  and after that there was no communication .

I paid fees in 1st week of june and when yesterday visited school they asked to go Main office at mount road .

When I visted office they were asking for readmission and staff was pretty rude, they did not even allowed me to talk to admin .

Please let me know what can be done, I can not digest, this is unethical .

Even school is not worth of readmission, since we do not have options to continue somewhere else .

 

Please let me know if ayone faced same situation and how to deal with them .

 

Thanks & regards

Hi all,

I am looking for more info about the west mambalam (kripashankari st) branch of A School. Read the comments, and am getting mixed opinions. I have few doubts:

1.Where would the child be continuing education after std.1. I read from the website that there are 4 branches "slated" to open. If the branches do not open on time, where would the kids go for std 2??

2.My child is now 2yrs 8 months. I know I am late, but since I would be moving to Chennai only next month, is there a possibility that they would consider my child for pre kg this academic year?

@padmas-since your child is going to same school, can you tell me how good things are please?

I am trying to contact the school as well, but information from parents would be very helpful.

Many thanks in advance,,,

 

easani 2011-06-19 11:37:22

 

Dear all ,

hi padmas and vima,

my daughter also in west mambalam branch.

now she is LKG last year she was in prekg.

The teachings in d school r very good

My daughter knows rhymes,alphabets to recite and can write

she knows shapes,traffic signals and their rules

they r celebrating monday as funday

wed as veg day,friday as fruitday and it is mandatory .

so any teacher in the wouldnt say to throw in dust bin.

they will strictly advice them to eat.

Here every coaching is done by playful methods.

if u want ur kid to learn all the things in one

month and u wish to compare with other school kids means

u will be keep on complaining abt aschool.

But here students r not treating like bookworms,

they enjoy to go to school they teach everything in practical

way.Ur kid learn discipline and goodhabits in easy way.

According to me the school plays goodrole to our money.

but it differs from person to person.

 

Vima ur kid will be in Prekg only and it will be named as preschooler.

The branch in porur is getting ready.

Now in west mambalam branch they have 2nd std also.

Hope ur kid also will enjoy the school atmosphere.

thank you.

What is the  actual fee everbody paid for the Pre-KG admission? Is it 9000 or 7800? Seems like non-concurrence among parents?

I paid Rs.9000 as admission and now we are asked to pay 6200+3600? Though it looks like notebook fees are also included here, I was also asked to Pay Book Fees Rs.5000 as optional during admission.

Thank God that I did not pay the book fee during admission?

We have to talk to the Management about not being transparent about the fee structure and also course of curriculum.

 

easani 2011-06-26 14:28:31

 

hi

we old students paying 9600/- per term from this year they have included the admin fee and programee fee (is pnly for LKG & UKG)

but what ever the thing programmes like fitness and materchef etc though good, if they included in circl'm they can't charge if its an extra circular activity we can always pay.

What ever admin fees they say is not acceptable ......

then why term fees what they include?

We have deciced to take this to management till then no one is paying from our centre?

needs more transparent....

 

 

 

 

padmas 2011-06-26 17:29:18

 

 Hi Vima,

You can try to contact the main center 9094770000, and check for the pre-Kg admission.

Initially I was also under the impression of just they make money, but its now a week school started, my son is enjoying at school. He never hesitates to go to school.

Hi Soubee,

Nice, that your kid is also in LKG, I was trying to find some one to discuss with LKG parents.

we will discussed more....

Hi Every one,

I have joined my daughter in Pre School Last year and she was born in june 2007(Age at 3) and i have been told the Main school will be opened with 30 mins travel time from your place. 

In the middle of last year i have been told that the main school place is finalised and will start the work immediately, but the end of year the place seems to be not fianlised and the 2nd standard in the continuing in the same class.

I just wondered in such a small place they contacting Play school, Pre KG, LKG, UKG,1st standard & 2nd standard.  

 I heard in the end of last year, that the A school management is admitting the children in LKG who completed 3 year as of june in current Acadamic year. So the fresher and my daughter will be in the same class. I discussed this with the administrator and with my letter they moved her to UKG.

Now this year,

The first thing that i disappointed transporation fee, this is like another school fee amount.

Second thing, my daughter has been advised to bring the Pencil to the school. Last time this was not happend and she was using pencil in last year also

Third thing, providing Snaks to the children with the amount 450 on each month. Its like partiality 

Fourth one, The administration fee & Program Fee 9800. That includes Activity, Note book, Abacus e.t.c.,  I dont know why we are paying 9600 as term Fee

They are not at all concentrating on the main school, but opened 34 branches in chenaai and collecting 39 thousand fee amount.

I was frustrated with the brand name 'Chettinad'. Surely im moving my daughter next year to some other school.

 

 

vinaya 2011-06-27 12:56:41

 

Hi Everybody

As u guyz   told really  A school is making us frustrated. I beleive they are going into montessory way of study. In which there will not be any seperate classes for lkg/ukg/1st/2nd etc. Childrens will be grouped based on their age. like start from 4 years to 8 will be in one class and so on . This kind of teaching is at SHARANALAYA. I truly beleive next year they will increase another year 3rd std in the same houses( so called A school). Only main school will be started for may be from 6th std. Mean time they will get enough fund for construction.

Any way these are my assumptions only. Need to get clarity from management.

Hi Easani,

My child is studying LKG at a-school, 18th avenue ashok nagar.They have sent a sms for additional fees (administration and program fees).Has anyone talked with the management regarding this. If you get to know any information can you please let me know. And they are mentioned that abacus would also be taught to children. Currently we are not able to know what is the syllabus they are actually following. What will be taught to children for this year?

Regards

hi all,

My son in LKG Ashok nagar 18th avenue. 

1. Major issue was current cut - 11.00 to 12.00.  Their childerns are suffering so much.  Any idea to deal this.

2.  We are paying fees and A snack fees like so much.  But they dont have an invertor.  Any body no this & forward this to management, kindly hands with me.

Hi,

I enrolled my son in west mambalam branch last academic year.This year i transfered him to a franchisee centre.My son is no way comfortable there.Infra works are still going on there.staffs all seems to be new and inexperienced.he is missing his old branch friends and staffs.In w mambalam branch he used to enjoy to go to school,but now he is crying every day.Even I was quite comfortable with the admin and staffs there.i feel i made a big mistake by transfering him to a new branch.

 

On the administration and program fees, this year it has doubled.earlier it was only 5000.but now its 10,000.isin't it too much.they keep expanding branches and give out for franchising.they are making money nicely.

Regarding Administration Fee & Program Fee.,

Parents of washermenpet branch joined together and planning to discuss this with the administrator. They are refuging to collect A school chalon from the school and they are not going to pay the Fee until they clearly explained abt the purpose of this Fee. 

 

 

 

ram123 2011-06-27 17:51:43

 

As rightly pointed by rajudhika the major drawback in 18th Avenue was the problem of Powercut. They haven't got any backup arrangements for substituting this.

Regarding the Administration Fee & Program Fee, we are totaly left out in dark. My Son was in his Pre-KG & haven't completed one full month in School. Now those persons are asking fee for of "no-use". What a Pre-KG going child has to do with - Notebooks, journals etc. Eventhough if this was justifiable, then what for we have paid the term fee.

Also more clarity required on the above fee structure ie:- This fee amount was per term or per year.

 

easani 2011-06-28 12:47:23

 

hello parents,

we old parents decided to take the issue to tthe management no paying fees untill they come up with solution.

Regarding power cut so many times we have rised for inveter that new admin is giving the same answer GOD only knows when they will have an inverter.

Regarding main building they won't comes up we old parents waited for three yrs till no news

simply expanding branches they are bringing up all these kind of fancy things just to avoid answering questions for main building etc etc....

IF these programmes are implemented properly then its worth... but this school doesn't do that. they leave ideas in half way.

frustated with this  school

 

 

Senthilkumar1 2011-06-28 13:47:34

 

 

Discussed with the school administrator regarding the Admininstration Fee & Program Fee. They said the Founder will come to school on 17th July and you can discuss with him, so we are not going to pay the fee until then.

Even they are collection this Fee for a Pre KG student for Abacus, Note book, Vocal music e.t.c. Its ridiculous.

 

 

ram123 2011-06-29 14:24:02

 

Dear Parents,

I have a difference of opinion of the fee structure for Pre-KG in 18th Avenue Branch. I've payed the fee amount of Rs.9000 + 9600 as admission fee & term fee respectively for Pre-KG in NOV-2010 . Today I came to know from another parent in the same school, as they have paid Rs.9000 + 7800 for Pre-KG in June-2011.

I 'am in a sort of confusion, as the same amount of Rs.9600 should be paid for every term or else they have reduced this as Rs.7800.

More transparency was required on this. Plz share if anyone have paid Rs.9600 as term fee....

 

Tejupooju 2011-06-29 15:18:25

 

From what i understood, they have reduced the fee to 7800 for those who join this year. Please check with the school administrator.

Plaese someone let me know ,cant we form as a group & ask for the answers from the admin for such a nasty  things happening with the parents for fees .

Its really going as a business for them & not the education for kids .

Please pour thoughts on the trouble i am going through . Expecting a good response & some  solution for my problem

Thanks & regards

 

 

 

 

 

easani 2011-06-30 12:41:52

As we discussed and old parents have decided not to pay the fees till the founder comes.Plsease do not pay the fees untill some one (especially) the founder comes and meets us .

They don't have a building , every time teachers change , diveation from what they said ....ridiculous.

 

 

aryanmom 2011-06-30 13:51:29
