    Hey Manju,

    I would join the group shortly. Thanks for sharing the link!!
    Basically A School celebrates all festives/occassion. To site a few, fancy dress and dance during christmas season, food sharing day, ethnic dress during pongal etc etc. Other kind of regular activities are rhymes, good practices, drawing etc. I am confused as to whether continue or switch. I heard good feedback about another school by name SunShine Montessori School Chennai. Let me see how things proceed

    Manju, I am still awating a call from A School. Admissions in Omega is still open so I still have time. also will again consider Omega when he needs to go to the main school @porur if he joins A school now.. considering the distance for such a young age I am preferring A school for now.

    Hi,

    I have admitted my son in this school starting June 2010. We had applied for ashok nagar branch.
    The admission was last saturday (May 1st). We were informed that ashok nagar branch seats have been filled and a new branch is coming up.
    It could be in KK nagar or west mambalam. They will send us a letter intimating abt it.

    We are in saidapet , east jones road. We are looking for van facility.

    If any of the parents in saidapet would like to plan for school van . kindly let me know.

    cheers,
    Manjula

    HI,
    I tried to put my son in this school, at Ashok Nagar last year. The person who answered my call said I may have to pay Rs. 24000 on the whole for a year. This branch doesn't have classes from I. He said they will be shifting to Porur and that too is based on whether they get the land to construct the school. since it will be co-ed, he said, they are on the look out for a suitable place near porur. when I enquired him about transportation once they shift to porur, he said that can't be guaranteed since that purely depends on the strength of the students who would opt for the school bus or van. I though it to be ridiculous because he sounded too non-committal. so i dropped it.

    hey Manjula, do you know the branch your son will be going to?? actually the new branch is 1 or 2 kms from the existing Ashok ngr branch.. only last weekend I took my sis's son for admission (last min I thought) but they promised and wrote down for us that child's school branch will be decided based on their residence address.. so those nearer to Ashok Nagar 4th main road barnch (like K. K. ngr and that part of ashok ngr) will go to the 4th main road, the kids near west mamb will go to the new branch starting this year..

    Sudha, sorry to hear abt the bad exp last year.. when I called them this year, they were very couteous and answered all my questions patiently.. I have heard many parents given them the credit. Also the main branch starting with 2nd std will come in porur (not sure of the exact location) and transportation is available (as far as I was told) ofcourse at extra cost.

    Hi Arthi, Thanks for your reply , yesterday got an sms from the school to register the branch preferences in their website. We have opted for alwarpet as the first choice since we will be moving to teynampet shortly.
