    Hi All, :hiya

    My DD would be 2.5 years old in another 10 days..this year we are planning to put her in preKG but i am really confused....We are actually thinking of putting her in a good reputed CBSE school only from her 1std (due to few personal reasons)...

    So right now,for her pre-KG,LKG and UKG i feel it would be better if i could put her in a nearby school,within a radius of 1-2KM max so that she doesnt have to travel much and also in case of need even my ILs can go and pick her up..I stay in Ramamurthy nagar,Bangalore...

    so my question is

    (1)Will it better if i put her in a good playschool which has pre-KG,LKG and UKG???...if this is a better option,what are the good playshools which you would recommend that would give her montessory based training??...can you please elaborate a little more about the school if you have put your kid or know someone who has put their kid...
    till now i have seen EURO,APPLE and HELLO KIDS and i feel i would put my DD in EURO if i come to know that its better to put the kid for preKG in playschool!!!!!

    (2)Or will it be fine if i put her in a good local school???..


    Which would be a good option for my case,where i have the plan to put her in a good CBSE school from her 1st std only???...


    Which school/playschool is really good in/near ramamurthy nagar that would help her,groom her well such that she could get into the CBSE school easily(during her 1st std admission)?!!!


    I know that there is already one thread that was created for getting the better options
    (http://www.indusladies.com/forums/schools-playschools-daycares-in-bangalore/150169-better-pre-schools-schools-kg-2.html)...but i felt i could start this new thread to get idea for my condition...if i put her in a school/playschool right now,i wont think about changing the school after that, i mean till she completes her UKG...hence want to know which would be a better option for her 3 year education-PREKG ,LKG and UKG..


    Also tell me,(whatever be the option-playschool or school),will it be fine to go on a hunt for admission from now on or am i late in discussing this for Pre KG(this year)??


    Waiting for your replies Bow

    Thanks in Advance

    i cant answer you bcoz I dont stay in BLR. But my suggestion is to put her straight in the main school from KG itself bcoz after KG, you may or may not get the admission. If you are confident of the admission, then putting her in either play or regular school doesnt matter. They may be a bit liberal in case of play school compared to regular. If your kid is too good to go to school, then choose play school. If she is all ok ok to school, try regular one.

    HI,

    I am not from rammamurthy nagar. but you can find any good playschool for your little one.
    Just make sure you keep following up with her about what they teach her and keep repeating things at home.
    So that she is all set for the school when she joins one.
    this is the age when they learn most of the things so all the best.

    Hi swaran,

    In Bangalore, its little difficult to get admission for first standard in a normal school. We needed to pay more donation to start from first standard, as the kid dint study KG in the same place or they make the kid reappear UKG.. This was the scenario even during my time - the 1980's! I am not aware of the current trends since my DD isnt that big, but still , pre-kg in play home is safe, i feel...
    I understand you have your own personal reasons to start first std from a normal school, but find out from school itself directly how much admission for first std costs and all that... I know that good cbse schools in/near RM nagar are Presidency school, ITI Vidya niketan.
    And i think you should decide asap about her pre-school, because they close in march-april for june batch i think. Good luck to you and ur DD :)

    Swaran,

    I rememeber giving my two cents on this...never mind on repeating..As an bril has mentioned , in BLR it is extremely difficult to get admission in good reputed schools...And most of the seats would be filled in KG's. Very few seats would be available in Std I...In such case its better you opt for Formal education rite now...Also my Son did his Pre Nursery in a Play School and Nursery(Currently) in one of the reputed school...Initially it took some time for him to adjust...and touch wood he got accustomed to it...
