Request parents based in this geography, to join this group so that we all can exchange notes about school / education etc. on a ongoing basis while our children grow .... 
My daughter is just 2-year old and I now realise the importance of info sharing and remaining connected with parents in the same vicinity..... just to open the discussion, request all to share their views on Pawar Public school vs. Euro (Airoli) and any tentative dates for forms of nursery admissions for 2015-16..... cheers !

Have you taken admission for ur daughter. My son is of 2yrs now and am equally worried n confused about the schools. Tried luck at Pawar but the form was not selected in the lottery system. Can you help me with some good options in and around Bhandup? How about Friends Academy - Mulund?

Looking for a good school for my lil one for nursery in and around Bhandup. Please guide me which school has excellent study( icse), cooperative teachers, good infrastructure, security and focus on extra curricular activities. I heard about pawar public school.. but read somewhere that the timings are 8am to 3 pm. Which can be very long for little ones. And are they strict on attendance . Also they have lottery system which can promise your child getting admission on luck. So which schools have good timings with above. Parents please share...

hi... can anyone please update as to when the forms for the admission for the year 2016-2017 is about to start in pawar (bhandup) or schools in airoli will start...


chandra111 2015-09-27 19:54:09


Apart from Pawar public school which schools around Bhandup (nearby) can you all recommend for teaching, extra curiccular activities, security, students overall growth, teachers feedback score, parents satisfaction etc. New horizon and other few are good but a bit far away. Schools close by are better. Thanks

Hi all,
I am looking to admit my son in Jr.KG choice is PPS Bhandup but definitely its IMPOSSIBLE to get there. What other options are good around. Airoli schools for now are not a great option as child is too young to travel. anything in Mulund..Bhandup worth considering. I am only looking at ICSE or CBSE Boards.
Is there a seperate Bhandup Parents group?

Pps Bhandup nursery admissions have been announced on their site, They are scheduled for first week of December. I am also looking for other equivalent, near by options. Since this one is lottery based. Best of luck to all of us for admissions!

As per new GR, nursery age limit is 1 Aug 2012 to 31st Jul 2013 and one year previous(more) for Jr KG.

My daughter is going to lose a year because of 45 days as she is born in Sept 2012 and not eligible for Jr KG because of this new GR and she has to start from nursery again.

Last year, we tried for nursery but couldn't be lucky enough to be picked in lottery in PPS Bhandup hence continued in the same pre-school for second year as it conducts nursery as well, assuming next academic year (2016-17) we will try for Jr KG. But because of this new GR, she has to take admission in nursery and lose one year.

Unfortunate way of functioning of our education system, if they would have made public about this GR which was discussed and passed in Jan 2015, parents like us would hv taken admission in nursery and kid would hv moved to Jr KG in 2016-17.

They should have made use of social media for this kind of GRs and also informed schools who would have propagated the news; making it public and helping parents know about these changes would have saved a year for so many kids.


chandra111 2015-11-20 14:36:00


Exactly Jahnvi. A lot of children would lose one year and on top of that imagine repeating the same class..losing time, money and their year. Atleast for the age rule there should have been a 1 month or 2 month (extension) relief period. One of the rti activist did raise the point on the same.Does that mean a child born on 1st August is less smart and not competent than a child born on 31st July or before.

Hi All - Looking for Jr Kg admission in ICSE school nearby Bhandup. Any opinion on below schools as Pawar Public is very difficult to get.

2. GS Shetty International, Bhandup
3. Daffodils High Public School, Bhandup.
4. St. Mary's convent -SSC, Mulund

Hello everybody,

This is my first post in this forum.

Unfortunately we missed out an opportunity for submitting application to Pawar for our daughter since we were out of town and reached Mumbai on the last day of submission. We pleaded with the school staff but obviously they are a great school, and as the old saying goes, the fame come arrogance which is sky high. Anyway, opportunities of Pawar are closed for my daughter seeking admission for nursery 2016 - 2017. We are residing in Dreams.

I looked around for other schools. There is a school in Shivaji Talav area Bhandup - Daffodils High.
Nobody seems to know much about this school, checked with friends staying nearby also. This school is adjoining the Parag School which is quite well known.

What I have managed to find on Daffodils High:
- This school was in Mulund E initially, some parents who sent their children to the Mulund E schools did write good reviews.
- The school apparently had expansion plans, and as part of that plan, they have now come to Bhandup.
- They do have a small campus.
- What I found good as first impression is unlike the really famous schools - the admin staff seemed very approachable - I hope they remain this way, this is one criteria which I consider very important, if you have an aloof school management to deal with, matters get really difficult because they do not care about your problems then - they already have a big line of parent waiting to get their wards admitted in the school if you want to leave!

Now this is where it gets really interesting:
- PPS Bhandup will post the admission list on 18th Dec'15 for those lucky children from their so called lottery system,
and Daffodils High is closing admissions on 15th Dec'15.
- Supposing I did get the form for PPS, my worry would have been that if my daughter was unlucky in the lottery, then option of Daffodils would also be lost......what a situation to be in!!!

Anyways, will post more updates, its really good to see that parents are interacting well on this forum, hopefully this will continue because together we can help our children with this information exchange.
