Hi Everyone,

I have a son of 2.9 yrs old now. Planning to put him in LKG in 2013-2014. I know its too early to start this thread . But after seeing the threads in Parentree i dont think so:)

I am in US now and will be returning back to India by May 2012. By that time all the schools might have closed their admission for pre-kg. So am planning to put my son in LKG for the Ac yr 2013-2014.

How many gud cbse schools allow admission in LKG without joining at prekg? I know Sankara in Adayar does not have PreKg. Will PSBB and Bala Vidya Mandir allow LKG admission?

Can I take a risk?! or Should I return to India considering my son's education!!!! Am in confusion . Please help me!!!

Well Vidya mandir in mylapore starts with LKG only. normally applications will be given in the month of january. Again Sivaswami kalalaya in mylapore starts with LKG only. As far as PSBB is concerned it starts with pre-kg. Similarly P.S.School in mylapore (CBSE) starts with pre-kg.  For PSBB applications will be given in the month of November. For PS and kalalaya january is the month u should look for.

Your son will be eligible for LKG for year 2012. So you should look out for admission notices from schools from Nov 2011 onwards. The schools will post the admission notices in their websites. The chances of getting into schools in LKG which already has prekg is slimmer as the same children in prekg will get forwarded to LKG. But there will be some seats available in LKG as usually many children in the < 3 year ages will be put up in nearby playschools for prekg due to convenience and will look to join regular schools only for LKG.

Hi pprr,

Thanks for your reply. That gives me the list of schools which I can look for.

Hope ur kidoo is already is school!!:)

If you look at the age criteria for LKG admission in most of the CBSE schools, they say it should be 3.5 years and not 3 years. I just refered this in some of the school's website.

The point  that there will be LKG seat is boosting my confidence.

Thanks much

Hi AnuAshok

  For CBSE the age criteria is 3.5 years, but that is for the time of admission in school not while applying.. your son will be completing three years in three months.

I hope he was born during June/July 2008

 Hence when the application is being given during november 2011 for Admission to LKG for  2012, your son will be completing 3.5 years

So LKG for your son is Ac yr 2012-2013.

plan your admission accordingly

Hi All,


My son is going to be 3 soon and i am planning to put him in LKG next yr 2012-2013 academic year. Is it really tough to get admissions into LKG in the "good schools"(so called....)?He is currently going to an montessori play school here in UK.(Just 3 half days/week).  Is there any chance (i know its next to impossible) that he will get an pre-kg admission in any schools near t nagar, mambalam, nungabakkam area or in any other area??


Thanks and Cheers,


V shah.

@Vshah - I guess you are too pessimistic. The definition of good schools differ from person to person. Hence look out for schools that you feel would suit your definition or your kid and do not go by brand name. This is my opinion and however I must say, opinions differ!! All the best for your school hunt!!!


Vshah 2011-04-13 14:31:17


 @umabala: Thanks for the reply and i am sorry(the overall discussions in these  forums has given me a very bad taste about the branded schools. never meant to hurt anyone's opinion....)

Is there any remote chance for pre-kg admissions this year?

my son was born in may 2009. is eligible for pre kg for 2012-2013 academic year. i am staying in nanganallur. please suggest some good school and their admission procedure


 Former member 2011-12-16 14:40:55


Yes, he is eligible for Pre-kg. i think you can try DAV adambkkam, Arsha Vidya Mandir. I dont have any personal exp. but heard these are decent schools


asish 2011-12-16 14:44:17


Thanks for your quick response. I heard registration is closed in DAV and check for Arsha vidya mandir. they have mentioned about LKG admission only and regn will start online from dec 22. they did not mention anything about pre kg admission.

please suggest

I am new to parentree group and I read all the discussions about school  hunting and it is very useful to all.  I have a son of 2.3 years old now and i am  planning to put him in SBOA School & Junior College since i am residing near anna nagar.

Can Anybody share your views about  SBOA school. Till now im not put him into any play school since he is not start talking (he just says little words like amma, appa, tatta).   Please tell me when i will put him to play school and regarding admission procedure also.


Thanks in advance
