Subject:  My child started when he was walking
Just wanted to share my experience about my kid Akul. We started schooling for him with a Junior Toddler Program when he was 14 months. We were lucky to have a school KLAY in Whitefield Gurgaon.
I saw on their website that they have started a school some where in sector 49 in Gurgaon. Please try that school.

Hi Rahul!

Did u finally admitted ur kid to the playschool at 18 months, or did you waited more? If yes, then is the experience positive?

Can you please reply in detail because i have done the same thing i have got my 18 months kid admitted in a nearby play school, paid 22k rupees, and now worried after reading all the posts, as he is about to join their from 2nd April.

Subject:  too early
hai i am mom of two. the first child i put her into the 2.6 years and the second one i put her in at the age of 2.9years. i dd not want to put the second even at this age ,, i thought 3 would be fine. but i let her go to just get used to the rules in the class and interaction and dicip/ and thinks like that.also i did not want my child to lag behind the rest of the kids in the regular school.

i would say 1+ is too early for the child. ideal would be 2.6year or later.

schools are there just to make money. we have to use r heads to decide what is good for r child.

my first child is so fed up of learning ABCD.... since she is being doing this since 3 years.

I think she will enjoy school & activities there. not sure if I should take chance og putting her in scholl by next month or should wait..scholls are so expensive now so do not want to make it as trial..

can anyone suggest what may be right

Subject:  I am in the same type of situation
My son is 1 year 5 months old. I have put him in playgroup. But everytime he comes back home after his 1 hr at the school, he is crying. He is the youngest in the group too. I am really in a fix, if I have admitted him too early in the playgroup. I am thinking of not sending him to the playgroup. What should I do?

otherwise she just clings me 7 never let me leave her .i just observed the children who are less then 2 are all behaving the same whereas children who are 2.2 & above are comfortable ,i think we r putting them a bit early we should hv patience
i´ m planning to take her out & will send her next yr.

I have the same confusion.. I enrolled my child in a play group when she was abt 1.11
The first 2 weeks were fine.. she enjoyed it a lot... but since then she has been crying a lot.. clings to me at the gate..and when she comes out I can make out that she has been crying all the time.. we spoke to the mgmt.. at first they said she will settle down soon... and then after a couple of days conceeded that there is some problem and they will give her extra attention.. after that things improved a little.. when she comes out she tells me abt a few things she did inside.. but she still does not want to go to school.. and the same drama outside the gate every morning...
It is almost a month since they started school and most of the kids in her batch still cry.. is this normal ? I thought they would all settle down in a couple of weeks..
From the outside I cant find any fault with the school.. they have lots of good teachers and decent ayyas.. the mgmt is co-opertaive.. school is clean and spacious.. lots of facilites and great activities..but I dont know what happens inside.. my daughter is just not happy.. and she enjoyed the first 2 weeks so much..
Is there a problem or is it just a worried mom overreacting... I´ m wondering if I should pull her out and enroll her next year.. she will be 2.11 then..

Scottish High
Hi there,

I also have my daughter going to Scottish High from past 3 years, however i do not agree with the comments provided by others. Its a real good school and comes in India top 10 category with kids scoring in ICSE boards and excelling in extra curriculum also. Its true that they are very strict which you may call as Attitude and yes there may be some wh... - SK [View Message]
