I have been searching schools near ecil area and finalised these 2 schools. Very confused on selecting.
I liked reqelford campus but have not even read about its academics in any blogs and fee structure is bit expensive for me as it is 1.3L per annum for Nursery and admission is 40k separate and separate charges for Books,uniform. Bus and food are our options.
Billabong fee structure is reasonable 50K and campus is good too. 
Can anyone suggest me about the academics of these schools,because i dont want to change the school again and i want to continue her in the same school for higher grades as well.
Any other schools suggestions ????

We are also on the same boat. We visit both the campuses last week. Both the schools, pitches on the activity-based learning.

During the interaction with the academic coordinator & counselor, Billabong wasn't able to convince on the same as at the end it seems they are following a mixed approach & boasting too much also the campus/ sports facilities is not that good. The fees to us are 1.17L (20K - discount) excluding of books, transport & other facilities etc. Can you tell me, how come it's 50K?

During our interaction with Requel ford International Coordinator, Academic Coordinator & Activity head, we found that they are very clear in their teaching pedagogy, facilities & what exactly they are focussed. The campus is too good & the focus seems is on activity-based as the examples they shared with us. Fees they mentioned was - ~84k (+ 40k for activities). Admission fees of 40k is discounted if paid before Dec 10th and yes it excludes food, transport etc..

May I know, where you have finally enrolled your child plss? Which other schools are your considering?

Can you pls ping on my Whatsapp - Shweta (9927028566).

Hi Ashish/Shweta,

My son is in Reqelford (Habsiguda Branch - UKG) and as far as our experience goes, it is very good.
Their teaching methods and nurturing methods are commendable. 
We loved their campus in Rampally.. really far from city though.

Can you explain more on fee structure? 84k is ofr class 2 - including admission, tution, books, food and transport?
They are also offering discounts these days?

Dear All, My son studied 2 years in foster Billabong.They are not interested in working days and give more holidays. There is no considerable standard in school. But I continued till 2 years only because school is nearer to our house and basic amenities are just OK for that fee structure. They never update what happens in school daily. Teachers change frequently.Fee hike in middle of year. Classes will not happen as per time table. Extra curricular activities dominate Academics. But fee is very high around 1.5 per annum including books and transport. Director is so arrogant and If we demand on education, she will directly say take TC and go and also threatens parents. Next year I am moving my kid to requelford. But if you want better education and responsibility go for requelford only.
