Starting this discussion so that the common group of people (parents who are looking for LKG admissions for there kids in Pune) come together and help each other as the schools are least bothered about being courteaus in even letting out the information to admission seeking parents.
I agree.. I am one of them.. does anybody aware of good LKG+JKG till 10th good school having CBSC pattern near kharadi/Kalyaninagar ?
I am shifting from WAkad. Here Pumpkin patch is very good school for pre-primary.
The best one i know here is St.arnolds. They have not yet started there admissions i think, most probably they will start online in next week. I am also trying for that school.
Thanks for your reply. As this school was on my top list as well..... But not sure, if admissions are started or over..... another quert Is this only boys school? Sicne i am little reluctant to send my kid in boys school.
I m alos looking for LKG admission for my son currently he goes to Vibgyor High. Please let me know any information if you have.
: I dont think its only a boys school.
: It depends on the priorities you have, i.e. distance from your home, which board, coed or not etc. Think on all these and more parameters and then narrow down on your options then if anyone has information about any of those options then we can share.
Bad news - St.Arnolds said there wont be any LKG forms this year, dont know why.....:(
Forms are available for st.joseph - pashan, St.Mary's will start next week
Orbis ,Amanora school,poddar wagholi..are nearby cbse schools from kharadi..
St .arnolds too gud school..
But St. Arnolds said there will be no LKG forms this year :(
St.Marys has put up their admission details..
Anyone have any about St.Felix?
St Felix is Maharashtra Board, and education is very subsidized or even free for the primary sections i think. Please find out more about the school.
I am a little concerned since both Hutchings and St Arnold's is not open for 2010 born. Any other schools you guys might know of in this area, preferably CBSE or ICSE.
Thanks dhruv1, however its a Jesus & Mary convent so i have heard very good reviews about this school. Fees is not that a concern however i would not want to admit my child in school who themselves use corrupt means to give admissions...you know what i mean :)
I m bit confused between LKG and nursery fro admission as,actually i want to know what LKG is referred as, for schools below schools:
1.St marys - LKG is nursery kya??
2.Bishops - ??
3.Hutchings - ??
St Marys-Lkg s knwn as Nursery..ukg as preparatory
Hutchings n Bishops too must be same..i think,.
hutchings ---prenursery then nursery then preparatory.
bishops-----nursery,lkg and then ukg.
thanks for the reply @aks and @akshu
Does anyone has ne idea if the schools mentioned above only prefer non working moms :)
mpb : I dont think there is any preference like that anymore coz i know few people who are both working and still manage to get admission. Only thing is that you need to be true and should be able to assure that even though you guys will be working still you will ensure adequate time/effort for your child.
Dont worry about the working mom stuff and try for the admissions without hiding anything :) all the best.
Guys St.Marys opening up there admission forms online tomorrow....
Also does anyone have any review about Pune International School - Vishrantwadi....just heard about this school today so wanted to check.
Can anyone told me st mary ph no? i m trying last 2 days
on which they mentioned on website but nobody ans
Actually last year i have submitted form for
hutchings and bishops with my working details, So i didnt get through
both then i thought this might be one of the reason.
And for st mary's do they will open form for boys Nursery.
From where you got to know and one more thing whether St.Vincents is good school as it is SSc and only Boys school does this make any difference
mpb : Your thinking is right if you've had such experience in the past however i still feel that there are more than one reason for not shortlisting the forms. Working mom should not be a problem as long as we are able to convince that we will still have time for our kids.
St.marys i think have opened up forms only for girls now, i got this information from there site.
St.Vincents is a very good school and i personally dont think SSC makes that a big difference, at the end of the day we want our children to get good overall education and be prepared to take sensible decisions...:)
nik23 : Try in just dial, they usually have the latest numbers updated.
However phone contacts with these school nowadays is very difficult (my personal experience :) ) Dont know if these schools actually enjoy making parents come to the school just to ask simple simple queries.....:(
@nik23...I think better than calling the school u can ask parents on this forum...:)
St. Mary's boys does not have pre nurs or nurs...only from UKG.
Since morning m getting network error for Bishops School website has it open to any one
