The topic / subject line caught my interest. I evaluated several schools from this perspective couple of years back and found a school called Babaji Vidhyashram in Sholinganallur. Both my kids study there now. It may be worthwhile investigating. The only negative is they are the only school on OMR where you cannot get admission if you are not well planned, in line with their philosophy and well planned ahead of time.

Hi Submur,

You can also consider Montessori schools which makes children learn beyond books.

I seriously evaluated The school. Jiddu Krishnamurt's philosophies are very different....for ex., mixed age classrooms, in one classroom you could potentially have children from grade 3,4 & 5. 

Would recommend that you review this link and some of his writings before you zero in on The School - http://www.jkrishnamurti.org/about-krishnamurti/the-core-of-the-teachings.php

HI  papabear

Are they (
babajividhyashram) considering location as factor in admission , since we are staying around 10 to 12 Kms from school . I am looking for LKG admission 2018-19 . when will be right time to contact the school . I am planning to visit the school this month  Please guide me 


papabear 2017-07-28 14:26:12


When I applied, location was definitely a major criteria that they considered. Last year I hear they got more than 1100 applications for 200 seats and they gave admission mainly to people who lived close by the school. Very refreshing approach in this day and age.

Will they accept if parents willing to move? Is it really meaningful to apply in a school which r far away? How to deal this factor generally

KKK9 & KM0815

Many parents gave such a declaration, that was accepted by the school and subsequently parents planned and shifted nearby the school. They had a clean, organized method of application and distance from school was one of those.

I think you can explore CASCADE Family Learning Society in Besant Nagar, My daughter has been going there for the last 3 years.  They follow Montessori Methodology and prepare the children in open/extended home schooling manner.  You can check out www.cascadefls.org.  If you are looking for a temporary play school then this might not be the place.  They have complete infrastructure from 3+ to the stage they are able to write open schooling at 14+.
