 Dear All:


I will be applying to Hutchings this dec for admission for my daughter and since the website has very little info i was hoping for some help from this grp wrt;

1- How many students per class

2- timings of the school - i gather from the chat that there are diff timings

3 - interview process

Many thanks in advance

@flowerpower---1.about 30-40 students per class.5 sections

2. 8:30 to 11:00 for prenursery and nursery. Prepratory onwards its 7:30 to 1:00

3. the principle asks the parents basic questions like ur qualification ,where do u stay etc. another teacher interacts with the kid .some play with the toys kept there and some draw with crayons.

After applying do keep checking the website to know if u have been selected for the interview.

 Does anyone have any info whether there are going to be exams for the little ones??


Any idea what all things are covered apart from colouring and poems?


SPNija 2013-09-30 10:29:07


Puneet your query was just on time...Teacher sent a note stating about the exams and the syllabus for it .... Any idea if they are taught small letters? or is it just Capital Letters ?

ShrinivasPote 2013-09-30 11:44:31


Yes there was a note in the diary about the sylabus for mid-year exam. But we are little confused with the content of it since we do not know
1. What all Poems are taught.
2. Alphabets are just capital ones or small letters as well.
3. What does it mean by My Self, My Parents and My School, is it a small essay kind of stuff.
Pls anyone can through some light.

LChakraborty 2013-09-30 14:35:33


On this issue had been to school today.
for Poems teacher has said it is their responsibility and they will take care.
others we have to handle to enable the kids to identify the alphabets.

SPNija 2013-09-30 15:10:55


Thank U LCakraborty for sharing the info..Any idea on how would the exam be in are they going to give Question/Answer sheet to every child or just call each child and ask him/her to point out on the board?Just curious...since the kids are still so small to understand the exam thingy :)

SwatiDandekar 2013-09-30 15:27:49



When was  note abt the syllabus and abt the exam has been given.


SPNija 2013-09-30 15:43:41


It was Given on Friday Swati....Also they gave the ABC book which the childern color in class... I think this was just for parents to give them an Idea of what is taught in class abt div A they have completed till M...

SwatiDandekar 2013-09-30 16:06:34


@SPNija : Thanks a  lot for reply. Actually my kid did not go to school on Friday due to sickness.


ShrinivasPote 2013-09-30 17:18:57


Thanks LChakraborty for the information.

puneetgr8 2013-09-30 22:20:13


Yes. Recognizing the alphabets is fine but then kids have to match them with the pictures. For example there will be alphabet "A" and picture of "Apple". Kids have to match "A" to "Apple". I really feel it will be tough.

SheetalC 2013-09-30 22:29:09


@puneetgr8....agreed definitely it wil be tough for lil ones but just take it lightly we need not to push them to study coz this is not the proper age to make them feel serious abt studies:)
let them njoy the studies.

SheetalC 2013-09-30 22:53:41


For the div A,teachers have completed till alphabet 'M'.
I am not sure abt poems coz i didnt get the poem book till date from teachers side but my kid used to utter the poems like johney-johney,twinkle twinkle,ABCD....,Hickery dickery dog,Yummy yummy tomatoes,Rain rain go away and some more.
they have G.K. paper also ie they need to be aware of their body parts,family members etc I think there is no any essay type ques...just objective type ques.... hope so.:)
Numbers -1 to 5 with counting and matching the pair......:)
if anybody has extra info abt the same ....please share

SheetalC 2013-09-30 22:55:11


Is there any idea why school timings are 8.20 am to 10.40 am for pre nursery from  9th to 22nd.....any special?


SheetalC 2013-09-30 22:56:01


@swati my kid is in PN-A

SwatiDandekar 2013-10-01 10:36:03


Hi All

What I feel .. instead of directly giving the syllabus at the time of exam .. they should atleast provide the syllabus atleast monthly .. so tht we will come to know what they have taught .... so that accordingly we can prepare from our kid.Also  is any one aware of the poems what they taught in class.


SheetalC 2013-10-01 20:08:21


Hi swati
i posted some of the poems in earlier blog,but not sure about the count.and u r right they need to make us aware of the portion completed monthly.

puneetgr8 2013-10-02 09:10:44


Had been to school yest. The teacher said that poems is their responsibility. Also they shud be able to match A to A , B to B. Similarly they shud be able to match 1 to 1, 2to2 etc.They will be asked about parts of the body like ear, nose, eyes etc. They should also know about family I e father's and mother's name.

HI Puneet,

I gave break to my child for almost one month and she will be on leave till school starts after diwali vacation.

Could you please update me about this exam things ? 

When is exam ? marks associated with it ? syllabus for that ? 
Also if possible you can update me with this extra timings of the school discussion which is going on.

I thought its a honeymoon period for a child and i never wanted my girl to take stress so this exam is kind of surprise for me  .
I asked leave for a month to principal which got approved and she is on leave now. She will only attend school after diwali now.

so thought of asking you about the recent updates.


SPNija 2013-10-03 11:24:30


Teachers do send back different class books every we can get a fair Idea of whats going on in the class...but about nursery rhymes no Idea...and as teacher said they will take care of it....

puneetgr8 2013-10-07 12:07:40
