Hi,

My 1 year old daughter is currently going to Experanza, Banjara Hills center. This is the best possible option i had and its absolutely good when it comes to caring for the kid. However, we have to move to new house near hitech ciry... close to DLF towers and i will need to shift my daughter to another day care soon.

Esperanza Gachibowli would be an easy option for me as its just a transfer.. but having seen that place.. i feel its conjusted and not even half as good as the banjara hills center.

I've heard about Kinderkare.. does it have CCTV facility? In general, how is the day care for infants ? I need to specifically know if they have CCTV and about the child:aaya ratio..

I do plan to visit the faculty sometime soon, but any parent who's sending or has sent their kids to this place can give reliable feedback

Esp banjara maintains a very good child:caretaker ratio... Does anyone know of any such day care ...

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

My son goes to Esperanza Gachibowli. I too went to Kinderkare (1.2 years back)but they don't have  this CCTV facility. Kinderkare has very good facilities but the only drawback is that their timings are till 6:30 Pm in the evening. Since, I am working, therefore its very difficult to leave office @ 6 Pm. In my office, I know few people whoes kids are going to Kinderkare and they are very happy with the facilities.

Regards

Thanks a lot for your response Mini01, i think I will also have an issue if they are strict about the timings. Plus, esperanza has really spoilt my habit as i can watch my daughter anytime and it is so comforting.

How do u like Esperanza gachibowli? I've met the reception staff, saw their facility ... it was ok except that the campus is small compared to the number of kids they take. Are the caretakers good?

 

Mini01 2011-06-09 11:50:16

 

The facilities are good. The care takers are very good..My son is big time fan of one caretaker Sultana...:) I understand that the campus is too small but I didnt have any other good option is this area where they have spacious campus plus with CCTv facility which is the  main attraction for Esperanza.

Dear shraddha294

I came across you discussion as I was browsing this forum. I will appreciate your feedback on esperenza Banjara hills centre.

I am looking at day care and nursery facility for my kid. I wanted to know how is the quality of care provided at this centre? also is the food hygienic. I just get an impression that the center might be crowded. also they promise lot of activities like dance and spanish language. do they deliver what ever they promised?

In some forums, I found that the CCTV is not provided on daily basis. So can throw some light on this as well.

I am looking at places near Banjara hills and Jubilee hills check post area. Places like Miyapur,Hitech city is far off for me.

Thanks

@ Arondhatee

I have absolutely no doubts about the Banjara Hills center. The caretakers are good and responsible. They feed ur kid with interest. My daughter's caretaker also gives me suggestions on what food items i can send for her (My daughter is there for infant care so i have to send her food ). Kids there look very happy. from what i have seen and spoken to other parents, kids have liked the food. I've seen their kitchen, it was better than i thought it would be.

My daughter keeps having cough and cold infections. I write the medicines they have to give her in the afternoon and she is given the medication properly. My daughter can't talk but i can feel that she likes the place. The whole staff is friendly to the kids.

The cctv might not work at times. But by and large it is very stable. U can watch ur kid daily. If you notice any discrepancy (which happens very rarely).. you call them and they will rectify it immediately.

You have to adjust with certain tini-mini things everywhere .. but i am very sure that i couldn't have found a better place for my daughter.

Also, the banjara hills center is not at all crowded. Its very spacious, they have a small playground to play. Kids are taken there almost every evening depending on the weather. Its the Gachibowli center that is crowded and small.

Unfortunately, we have no option but to shift her as we are shifting to a new place very far from banjara hills. Else i would've never thought of another day care for her.

(gave u more feedback than u needed i guess  )

@Shraddha924,

 

very very helpful feedback..never mind the length. it helps parents alay their doubts.thanks for the prompt reply.

this will be really helpful for me to decide.I visited the branch, overall I liked it. I was a little apprehensive about the basement where they condct all those classes. the kids of 2.5 to 3.5 age group take a nap there. so i was worried.

i will talk to these people in another few days time and come to a conclusion. i will update this forum also abt my decision. this might help more parents who seek such info.

 

thank you parenttree and shraddha924

Rest is best,

hmm.. i dont know about that basement thing.. u need to talk to parents of other kids there. You can get some parents contact info from the banjara hills centre too. I had asked them and they shared the contact numbers of two mom after their permission.

Ya would be good to let us know finally what u decide... All the best for that..

and back to my query... how good is kinderKare... ?

Hi Shraddha924,

I decided against sending my kid to Esperenza. My major reservation was about the ventilation. The rooms are laid with mattress which can become a problem in monsoon days. (I am sure they can handle that and have a way around.But just that I was not convinced). It was dingy in certain rooms and smelling moist air in some. Though the main area and classrooms were not so.
My second problem was the presence of auxiliary staff. (the boys who according to them, work at the office and are off limits for rest of the areas. They were more than 2. And I did not like it.) Thirdly, I thought it is very easy to get lost in this place. I mean one teacher thinks the kid is down and teacher who is down thinks that kid is up (that is when the school hours are over).

Yes, these may sound as doubts of a fearful parent. The children strength at the center might be a testimony to their good work. But did not like it personally. 

Will update my review for jubille hills sunshine shortly.

Hi Shraddha924,

Friends please give your personal review about Kindercare. The thread started for kindercare but finally discussion is going on for Esperenza.

Hi,

Today i visited the kindercare facility in Jaibheri gachiibowli. I liked the facility. It is spacious enough and lots of toys. I found the fee structure little high. It come around 5000 per month. How is the fee in other play schools any idea?

They have CCTV but that is not online so it is only in principal's room. The timing of the school is 8:30 to 1:30 for half day and 8:30 to 6:30 for full day. Overall it looked good. It depends how my daughter likes that. 

 

shraddha294 2011-06-16 15:06:13

 

Thanks imbarkha, i had also liked the kindercare facility when i saw it about 4 months ago.. but that time i was looking for something close to Banjara Hills... Now that we are shifting i thought i'll search a diff day care here.

The fees is ok, its almost the same everywhere... mostly it'll be in the range of 4.5 to 7.5 k...

With kinderkare, the timing is the only issue am having. Good luck to you. Let me know how ur daughter adjusts to the place .. BTW, how old is she ?

 Hi,

Goodevening to all the parents.. 
I have been following few threads/ discussions in this forum with regard to Play schools/ day care centers and Kindergarten schools near Miyapur, Hitech City.
As we live in Miyapur - initially, thought of admitting our son (5 yrs) in one of the regular schools assuming I would be able to get/ hire a maid without any difficulty. 

BTW, we just relocated last month from Singapore. All these years, we are residing in Singapore. 

But, hiring a part time maid / full time maid- has becme a difficult part. Hence, decided to join him in one of the preschools attached to day care.

I did visit the Creeks - Seeds preschool in Miyapur, but, somehow, it is not impressive.  Any one has exprience with Creeks, Main campus. Please do let me know ...

Like wise, any other recommended pre-schools / day care here near hitech city or miyapur.  

Request for reviews on kidzee, eurokids, bachapan, Sunshine (SMR Vinay city), Little Einstien, Kinder care, etc., 

I mean - latest experience .. how they are taking care of the kids.. 

Since, my husband is an Nascom employee, we planned to look at esperanza also.. is this gachibowli center is too small and not enough space ... 

Any one tried at Balarcade... 

Dear parents, any feedback, information - is highly appreciated.


Thanks in advance for all the help.

Regards

Ratna

Hi,

 

In which day care you have joined your kid?

 

sratnasurekha 2012-08-28 17:23:04

 

 I did not finalize any day care and joined him in Sancta maria school. Since I am staying at home, my self taking care of him once he is back from school..

 

 

princessliya 2012-11-23 09:51:02

 

 We had a bad experience from KinderKare, which I have posted in my blog. But Parentree won't allow me to post here.....

 

Esperenaza Gachibowli is too small and congusted... Banjara Hills one is jus okay... Somehow I was not personally impressed... due to many reasons..

 Hi Prince, I don't think PT objects to any negative reviews unless it is pointed at someone personally and carrying derogatory remarks. 

Rgds,
Mickey
