I am seeking admission for my child in nursery. How is HNS? are we suppose to stand in long Q for the Admission? I am a bit worried of this...


TEJSAG 2012-10-13 20:05:59


No , yu need not to be in more q for NHS, but atleast yu need to spare 2 hrs. for form filling and completing some formalities


Prinks25 2012-10-15 14:49:46


Yes, last year the whole admission process was very much organized and quick. Hopefully they will be maintaining the standard this year as well....

They are starting their admission for 2013-14 batch from October 16th. So if you are interested, have a look -

Hello All,

We have taken admission forms for NHSS & NHPS for 2013 admissions. Both have asked to come for an interaction session - both parents with the kid.

Any idea how is it going to be? Did anyone here complete the same?



DPM 2012-10-17 12:27:45



We also completed online admission process @ NHPS for 2013-14.

Our time slot for meeting is 1-2 pm on 19th Oct'12.

Need to know whether at the same time we have pay for whole year...or only interaction section and admission fee?

Anyone from Parsik Nagar, Kalwa????


anu2012 2012-10-17 13:15:04


Hello DPM,

From the updates I got from last year, we will be asked to pay the refundable admission fee and first installment.

I have the meeting tomorrow and will update on the exact details.



DPM 2012-10-17 14:42:55


Thanks Anu...

Let's see tomorrow..

Where do you stay??


anu2012 2012-10-17 15:41:45


I stay at Airoli, close to NHP school


Prinks25 2012-10-17 17:40:10


Hi Anu and DPM,

We also had interaction last year... but that was easy.... They only asked my son's name.... all other discussions were with us.

I think you need to pay the admission fees and the first quarter fee. If you are taking the bus facility, then you need to pay the 1st installment of the bus fees as well.


DPM 2012-10-18 10:58:38


Thanks for the information.

I stays in Kalwa. My mind is not ready to send my daughter to Airoli for Nursary.

She is december 2010 born and will complete 2.5 in June. Even though she is eligible, school is very far.

I am confused..wt to do??/

What are the chances for Jr.Kg. admission @ NHP??



anu2012 2012-10-18 12:32:10


I think you can do that - I saw many parents who prefer to start only KG only and send to a nearby Nursery.

Btw - I took admission for my daughter. Paid 40,000 overall - inlcuding the fee for Term 1


DPM 2012-10-18 12:44:47


Gr8....congrates Anu...

What is a fee structure for this year??

Have u taken your daughter for meeting??


anu2012 2012-10-18 14:20:10


I thinl overall, it will be around 55-60,000, of which 40,000 will be collected at the time of admission.

Yes, I took my daughter for the interaction. It was a simple session, just to make sure the details given are accurate and the child is a normal kid.


TEJSAG 2012-10-18 17:15:33


Hi Prinks25 and all exisisting parents of NHS


I have 1 issue, yesterday we recv. a piknic intimation from school for nursery picknic on 25-oct-12. but in intimation letter they have clearly stated that  " school is not responsible for anything, if anythning happen to child".


have yu guys , earlier send your wards to piknic earlier, as if school clearly mention about their responsibility, how we parents send wards to picknic.

pl. share yur experiance.







TEJSAG 2012-10-18 17:27:34



We stayed in kalwa and we have got nursery admision last yeay. school bus is good, so far from kalwa there is no issues so far.


but if yu took admission at jr. kg., i think so yu may get it for next year, as last year, 1 of my freind has directly taken admision in jr. kg, and he got it. but although chances of geting admission in  nursery are more than jr. kg. , as there are few new classes for jr. kg.


Kadha 2012-10-18 18:52:05



@tejsag - even i was shocked to see the picnic form which specified school is not responsible for anything, if anything happens to the child. I am not sending her to the picnic.

I can understand this is being asked for senior students but for small childrens who are not able to take care of themselves we as parents entirly depend on teachers.



TEJSAG 2012-10-18 23:44:40


Hi kadha

thats true. Generaly in smaller nursery school, they are asking parents to accompany small kids. but here i dont understand, how parents can give such declaraation?


garfield1 2012-10-19 09:10:36


Hi all....

regarding the picnic...i totally agree with all that for kg, its too early for the kids to go alone...they should have allowed ateast one parent per kid...that way even the parents could obeserve how the kids intereact with each other and we are also assured of their safety...

regarding the school's disclaimer for not being responsible for any incident, i think that is standard practice...not only schools but everyone does i dont think we shud read too much into this...

btw...even i dont intend to send my kid to the picnic...


KALPAN 2012-10-19 10:39:43


Hi all

with due respect to all your view, I wish to tell you that we always feel that our kids are too small to take care of anything and everything. Even on the first day when we send them to schooll, all of us know how much tensed we are and more if the kid is going by school bus n all. Still these smart little kids manage the show and get used to all this in a day or two. For playgroup and nursery, normally schools allow the parents to accompany the kids. However for Jr. & Sr. Kg they learn so many things in this one day picnic. Of course the school and the teachers take good care of all the kids as they are more responsible than us for the safety of ALL the kids. However it is a general practice to get the form filled up as the consent from the parents. Even for the operation, we (patient as well as the relative of the patient) sign an undertaking which says so many clauses giving full protection to the doctor, still we sign it and the doctors also perform the operation in equal responsibility. There we tend to believe the doctor same way here we have to keep faith in the teacher whom we all knows for so many months now. If we accompany the child, they tend to stay with us only instead of interacting with other kids.

So just don't worry, sign the form and send the kid for total enjoyment. Here only the kids learn to make friends, keep their things in the bag, take care of their clothes and belongings etc. Only thing u need to teach the child some things like not to go alone anywhere, be with your friend/teacher, in case of toilet n all, call mavashis only etc etc.


Prinks25 2012-10-19 11:00:56


Thanks Tejsag to start this discussion.... actually I was also shocked after seeing the phrase in the consent form, which I did not like even if I know thats a standard practice.

But I agree with Kalpan. When my son was in playgroup, that time also they went for a picnic alone (although I did not sign some declaration like that).

I am planning to send my son for the picnic.


KALPAN 2012-10-19 11:20:02


In fact these kids enjoyyyyy a lot the picnic day with their friends - one day away from the school just to enjoy with the school friends. And believe me all the teachers take good care of the children from their class.  Their responsibility is limited to the kids from their class and the kids actually enjoys playing with the teacher - who in school just teaches.  And the school picnics are much much different from the family picnic for which we take our kid.  The kids are there in a group of children of their age, the company of whom they enjoy like anything.

I sent my daughter alone in Jr. kg for the picnic which had gone to the place where water games were also there.  We all parents just ensured that the kids will not be sent in water since at that time only one bad incidence had happened. That time my daughter was in another school. There also we had to sign such undertaking but that is just a formality.  The school and the teachers are more responsible than, that is for sure and the tension they face is much much more than ours.  Last year when she went for picnic, the class teacher told me that she is not taking her daughter (6 yrs) for picnic since then she will be required to pay more attention to her and cannot take the care of her class children though teachers are allowed to carry their kids free of cost and her daughter was crying for the same. Salute to such teachers!!!!!!!!!


Although we tend to take a deep breathe only after we see our child in the evening after picnic, I feel we should give such enjoyments to our child  and just pray for positive things though negative things pop up in our minds throughtout the picnic day.



deepshan79 2012-10-19 13:46:53


@Kalpan - i agree with you that kids enjoyyy this one day and they learn a lot as well. But we as parents are and i guess always will be protective of our kids.Since it is a waterpark there is a little tension as its an open place. I am too plannning to send my child, because i dont want to deprive him of any kind of enjoyment.  But i was also planning to visit the school tomorrow and speak to the teacher to find out what are their arrangements - for e.g how many maids are they going to take along with them and how do they intend to manage their kids.

Also would like to know does anybody has idea for how much time the picnic will be.


garfield1 2012-10-19 15:10:34


Hi deepshan79....pls do post ur feedback from ur interaction with the teacher. mayb it may help me gain confidence and change my mind :-)


TEJSAG 2012-10-21 23:30:17


Hi Deepshan


Have yu checked out at school. please confirm





deepshan79 2012-10-22 12:00:59


Hi Tejsag/Garfield,

Sorry for replying late.  my son is down with very  bad cold n cough since friday and he has slight fever too. hence i decided not to send him for the picnic. Thats why we didnt go to the school.




deepshan79 2012-10-23 11:50:13


Hi all,

Hope you all have got the notice of the picnic date being postponed. I would request all parents to confirm with the teachers during the PTI of 3 nov regarding their arrangements for the picnic.

Please post your feedback as well, so we parents are in the loop.

Also would request parents of nursery section 2010-11 batch to exchange numbers. This would help us to contact each other in case of emergencies.

My son is in Nur - A. My email id is Please send me your contact numbers and i will reply back with my number.






deepshan79 2012-10-23 11:56:14


sorry the batch should be 2012-13...

Satish1980 2012-10-23 12:32:11


School is affiliated to CBSE w.e.f 1st April 2011. Please check the CBSE website.Generally affliation iks a lengthy process. But NHSS has got it within a year.


batsee 2012-10-26 19:12:45


 I was also very concern on sending my son on the picnic. I think they should have chosen an enclosed area like Happy Planet...which is also very closely. I will speak to the teacher on the PTI meeting and see what are the arrangements they have made.

Other then that I am very happy with the school and the progress he is making
