    This sounds very interesting. Do they kind of prepare the kids for education in India? I mean how long is this pre-school? Do the kids next move on to LKG? Or directly to 1st standard? Am asking out of curiousity… :)

    Comment by Deeps — January 12, 2007 @ 1:22 pm

  2. Chitra — said...

    Directly to first standard after EuroSenior. The nursery is like pre-KG, EuroJunior is like LKG and EuroSenior is like UKG.

    This chain of pre-schools is among the fresh crop of “new age” schools in India, especially in Bangalore. Teaching toddlers and young kids in very western, hands-on and playful methods.

    In general, there is good demand for extended pre-schools now. With real estate such a problem, you don’t find many with decent space/garden etc within the city. Thankfully, my area (Whitefield) has a few spacious ones left.

    Neev (http://neevschools.com/) is another good one, v expensive though.

    Nice review. Did you try Kidzee ? just curious - they are advertising big as well.

    Just read your other post - I hope you all get well soon :-) Otherwise, looks like you guys are settling in pretty well - lucky you :-)

    Silkboard, yes the demand is like never before. Never heard of Neev, probably ‘coz Whitefield is far from here. I guess they do not have branches.

    NZ, Yes, I have heard of Kidzee. I think thay are a chain as well. I am not sure if they are there all over India, tho’. Thanks for your wishes. We all are mostly well. I am glad!

    Hi Sandhya, welcome to my blog. I am happy that this came of use to you.

    I am sure you can admit him into LKG after Eurokids, ‘coz a lot of schools have admissions into LKG. That is one of the reasons I put a list of schools here, http://r2blore.blogspot.com/2007/02/list-of-good-schools-in-bangalore.html. I am not sure how the admission processes are going to be. We are going through it right now and I will update the blog once my daughter gets into LKG. :)

    Keep visiting and please suggest topics of interest to you.

    This was excellent. Thank you for the details. Do you know anything about the Mumbai Bandra Eurokids? The tution seems to be almost 3 times the one in Bangalore for Nursery. Outside the tuition, what is it like?

    Hi Chitra,

    You have done an excellent job by putting all this information together. I read almost all of your articles and found them very interesting. I found this blog full of compiled information which is not available elsewhere.

    I moved to Bangalore with my family 5 months ago. We are having a 1.1 year (13 months) old baby. I was looking for the information about the schooling in Bangalore.

    - Can you give some idea about the right age for getting admission in PlayGroup (about EuroKids you mentioned 1.8 years, is this common for all play schools)?
    - What is admission schedule for PlayGroup?
    - I was trying to compare Eurokids and KidZee, but didn’t find enough information for comparison?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Gurpreet Singh

    Anon, Thanks! I am glad the info helped. I am sorry, but I know nothing about the one in Bandra. 3 times, huh? Not surprising.

    Gurpreet, welcome to my blog and thanks! I am not very sure of the right age for playgroup. I am guessing anything around 2 would be good(?) I would have loved to do reviews of other schools as well, but really have access only to Eurokids, and that is cause of my daughter. Please look at my post on pre-schools. Maybe something there will fit your need? Do let me know.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for all the helpful information. I am from Denmark (Europe), relocating to Bangalore this summer. My youngest is 2 years old and non-English speaking. Do you think she can be admitted to these type of preschools?

    Thanks and regards,

    A brand new infant, toddler, pre school, Nursery and KG by IBM Work Life in partnership with this next gen type, very cool child development centre YOUR KIDS ‘R’ OUR KIDS just got launched in Bangalore (www.ykrok.in) at 44/1a Bannerghatta Road, next to IBM SA office & Sagar Apollo hospital. A second location is 155 Golf Link Rd (next to IBM EGL office) on Inner ring road in Koramangla.

    What can i say, the day care & school is the best I have ever seen in Bangalore for kids just 3 months old to 6 years of age.

    My 8 yr old daughter attends the After School where is learning dance (salsa), casio, theatre, grooming, hand writing, mini tennis, pottery, martial arts, personality development & I know they offer many more for ages 3 to 12 years of age.

    The management is Suman & Bharat Kapoor, both Ivy league educated. Bharat is from Harvard. Both are very professional & moms & dads, I must say give them a warm welcome, as they are very good.

    Phone numbers are 08041113671/72

    Hi,
    Really appreciate the effort you have put in. This is very helpful for many.
    I just waned to putforth a bad experience I had with Eurokids.
    I wanted to put my child in Eurokids. Visited the school on Begur Road and liked it. Owner (Ms. Indira Anand Kothaneth) was not present in the school.
    After going back, I called up the owner to get the details of the fee structure and transportation.
    Fee structure is changed from what is mentioned on this site. Annual Fee was around Rs 26080 that can be paid fully at once or we can pay 2/3rd around Rs 17,400 at the time of admission and rest around Rs 8700 in two installments.
    So far so good.
    Regarding transportation, owner told that there are 2 more kids coming from the same place as mine so transportation will be provided. But, to my surprise, when I asked for transportation fee, she told first I need to confirm whether I am putting my son to school. That seemed ridiculous to me (and offcourse to many others too). All other schools that I tried, I was given clear indication of transportation fee.
    On insistence, she told that, transportation is provided by a taxi which is not managed by Eurokids. I asked for the contact number of transport provider but again got the same response, first confirm the admission then only they will give contact number.
    So just because of this attitude of the owner, I didn’t admit my son to that school.

    I hope this issue is only there on the Begur road, Bangalore branch.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello,

    People interested in pre-school education must first consider Montessori method of education. It has been proven to be the best all over the world and above all the system is over a 100 years old now. It is really practical and children learn amazingly well. There are many Montessori Houses of Children all over Bangalore.

    hi
    We had read your review on Euro kids indira nagar branch and that had lead us to make up our mind to admit our child in that play school.
    Sadly admitting our child in that Euro kids indira nagar branch has been the mistake. The few of the play group teachers are rude and egoistic that we don’t know what our child has been going through inside.
    They do not answer any queries and the ignore parents as if the are nuisance. The Euro kids style of teaching is no way helping any of the children getting admissions in any of the school for the nursery class.
    They have 20 students in each class with 2 teachers and 1 help which handles 2 PLay groups. Teachers are not capable to control the kids and the kids end up getting bruised, bitten and clawed in class. If we go and speak to the Owner Sejal Khotari the teacher concern puts the blame on the parents and Sejal lets it pass by without getting to the root of the problem. Sadly the office in-Charge and the some teachers lack the soft-skills to handle parents who leave their kids under them. Worse some of them don’t even know how to sing the rhyms the right ways we parents had to teach them
    I suggested Euro kids indira nagar branch to a lot of people after reading you blog and they put their kids there. they too are so angry but helpless to remove their kids mid-term as they have paided the fees in full.
    not every parent can change schools because the management is unable to cope up with the expansion of the school. Surely Euro kids indira nagar branch is just into the business of making money.
    that news about Euro kids indira nagar branch in ur blog is old please update it.
    Thanks

    Hello Parents, Bangalore finally has a childcare of the highest quality, stressing a safe, secure environment; a nurturing, professional team of staff; and the finest educational experiences we have ever witnessed. My 2 year child and now a whole group of my friends have enrolled their children at Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids (www.ykrok.in) Their 2 centres are located at 44/1A Bannerghatta & 155 Golf Link Road.

    I confirm they are committed to providing a fun-filled, rewarding program that balances each child’s intellectual, physical, social, creative and emotional needs.

    My child’s day includes personal attention, gentle guidance and developmentally appropriate activities, including reading, math, science, art, music, computers, second language, creative movement and problem-solving challenges.

    Each member of the YKROK team, each aspect of their program, is dedicated to empowering children to do the best he or she can do.

    I urge parents to check it out as we all are very satisfied. Their number is 080-4111-3671, 4111-3672, 4126-1500

    Hi Friends,

    I would like to share my experience with EuroKids pre-school (Brookefields area, Whitefield).
    To be true, it turned out to be bad experience.
    When my Daughter was 2years 2months, I prepared her for going to the school. She was very intrested and happy to go out and enjoy with other kids. Surprisingly on first few days including first day she didn’t cry, she was ready to leave me and happy to be part of school. Eventually she didn’t want to go school or play with other kids. This put me down. She infact started crying to go to school. We were very worried about this act of her. When we approched the teacher in Eurokids, she started with complaining about my kid. This irritated us. As a teacher we expected her to take care of our kid to be part of school activity and group activities in the school. When teacher complains this shows that she was not capable of doing her work. We also observed that teacher shouting with the kids which is not an healty environment.
    We discontinued my daughters toddler section from midterm itself. She is at home. She took few months to be out of fear. Now she is back to normal and enjoying back with other kids in the park.
    We have took the admission for Playgroup in Deans academy. This is refered to be good school system.

    Chitra,
    I am Gurpreet. We live at Chinnapanhalli.
    I have kid who just turned two. I am looking to put him in play school in next session (June 2008). I prefer deens academy but I am little worried about commute. I feel he is two young to travel alone(without parents) in school bus for 7-8 km (from Chinnapan halli). After Deens Academy I am thinking of either EuroKids or Kidzee. Do you have any idea about Kidzee?

    Any suggession will really be helpful.

    I would like to share my experience with kidzone Indiranagar, bangalore.

    Please Stay away from Kidzone Indiranagar. They give so many false promises. Never keep them. forget about hi-fi things.. They promise to do potty training in 3 days after kid joins there.. forget about potty training, they dont even clean kids potty properly.
    When I talk to the correspondent(meenakshi) there, She says she is too busy for these small things.. and she was advising teachers to check just before the kids coming out. For whom? It is just to satisfy the parents interest? or interest is to keep kids clean?? When I heard this I just walked away and never sent my son again there..

    Kids hardly eat anything there.. When I asked them, Sai’s teacher was telling we didnt feed him because he may bring out everything he had.. All I sent was only grapes/biscuits.. his fav stuff.. He used to eat them in the car once I pick him.

    Teachers there are just time pass kind of ladies.. who used to sit at home.. and joined preschool as teacher.. They dont have knowledge on how to deal with kids.. not even basic knowledge.. they cant even difference between drool smell and potty smell too..

    They are too greedy for money.. It is run by husband and wife.. Husband does marketing job.. rather bashing other preschools.. and praising his own.. believe it is so horrible.. I discontinued by 22 month old..

    They dont do much for preschool kids and concentrate more on nursery. As nursery just before they go to school interviews..

    Well If you are for preparing kid just to school.. not for learning.. you can go ahead with kidzone.. They do good job of preparing kid to school.. that too in the last minute..

    Hi Chitra,
    My kid is 2yrs and 8 months old.and I would be coming to Bangalore in July 2008 so there are many apprehensions in my mind as to should I put her in a orthodox school or shall I opt for these new age preschools like Neev,Eurokid or Kangaroo kids.What do you suggest ?Since my kid has not attended play school ,would be very difficult for my kid to adjust to completely new surroundings like that of a proper school and even I can not imagine her going to school directly.But if I get her admitted to these new schools(Concept is good) would it hamper her natural progression if I decide after 1 yr to get her into a good school.would she continue from where she leaves these schools or would she have to repeat the class?The question is will the Schools like Bishop Cotton accept her?
    Kindly give your frank advice .
    Thanks

    My 3 year old son goes to Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids at their Intermediate Ring Road centre since one year. He will now join Bishop Cotton. I found the program pretty solid at YKROK. Their Math and English program is very good.

    The best part I liked about YKROK was that when I enrolled my son, they recognized that my son will soon be entering formal school in Bangalore that have a range of expectations for my child’s social and academic performance.

    YKROK kindergarten provided a total comprehensive, learning approach that challenged my son and supported all areas of development.

    I have their syllabus for anyone who wishes to get a copy. It recognizes both the value of a next gen type - modern curriculum and also a traditional approach directed, instruction to ensure that my child enters first grade with the skills and knowledge expected of him in the school that they will attend.

    I am copying this from their syllabus they gave me.
    YKROK philosophy follows a simple three pronged approach to value based teaching that is contemporary yet has strong roots in our culture and tradition. YKROK’s believe that each child has an individual spirit & potential. Classmates are never compared with each other to praise one at the cost of denigrating the other. Spiritual development is as important as learning the three R’s. Parental involvement is essential. No wonder, YKROK children leave smiling when they graduate to bigger schools.

    The school is worth enrolling. We got feedback reports daily and a progress report at the PTM monthly and formal assessment of my child was done two times. This assesment helped my son get into Bishop Cottons and National Public School.

    Right now, I have enrolled him into Kidzee in playgroup, they did not agree to nursery (even though he seems to be mentally more tuned to stuff done in nursery class)

    I was very unhappy with YKORK, indiranagar. the teachers are inexperienced, they change often. My son had a traumatising time there. Somebody there hit him and called him a bad boy. He used to wake up in his sleep saying he didnt want to go there. When I approached the school, they didnt do anything about it, and they didn’t even offer to help me and my son get over the trauma they ahd caused. I didn’t expect this from the so called “ivy league” educated founders.

    Hi, I was surprised to read Chaitra’s experience. My experience is exactly the same. My daughter is also going to the same branch as Chaitra has mentioned. I think this was a blunder of my life to put my daughter in this place.
    She has been regularly complaining of the teacher slapping her or hitting her on the head. Its a pathetic place. Is there any way we can complain in the head office for this?

    Hi,
    I’m relocating from Hong Kong by April. We would be living in HSR Layout. I would like to know how good ‘Euro Kids’ is in HSR Layout. I heard that each branch has different quality. So I was a bit worried. My son is 21/2 years old. What about Kidzee in HSR Layout?
    It would be great if you could provide the info.
    Thanks,
    Sathya

    My 4 years 3 months daughter till recently was studying L/Kg in KidZee Moran Assam. The school has been named as Anand Kidzone KidZee run by Mr. Indranuz Borah. She did her Nursery in the same school as the first batch student. Infact, we took her to Kid Zee from her earlier school only after attending 3 days of class in her earlier school for which full admission fees was paid. The reasons for the same was because we were swayed by the Kid Zee brand. However, to our utter surprise, it was observed that just after attending a weeks class in Lower Kg. my daughter was reluctant to go to class due to the following reasons:
    (i) She is often punished by her teachers both physically and mentally ignoring her age for reasons best known to them.
    (ii) She is discriminated and never treated equal to her class friends.
    On bringing the same to their notice, they simply ignored and in return told us that she does not give attention to her studies as a result of which they are unable take their course ahead. The teacher told us that after attending almost 1 and half months classes she could not spell nuremicals beyond 3 which interestingly we parents could make her spell up to 10 on her own in a span of just 4 days.
    Of late, it was observed that the centre co-ordinator with the entire teaching fraternity try to avoid us this way that way whenever we approach them for our grievance.
    This is a really sorry state of affair for the new school which has started functioning only since last year and the kid zee brand by large. The entire gamut of affairs was personally brought to the notice of Ms. Arpita Varma, the north east region co-ordinator during her last visit but to no avail. Finding no other option I have finally decided to shift her to some other school although the session has just started by forfeiting the admission fee.

    Hi,
    Can anybody pl. suggest me which school will be better for my 3.5 yrs old kid - will it be a play school like Euro Kids or will it be a proper school like Ryan or DPS?
    Many thanks in advance…..

    hi,

    I have been looking out for a play school for my kid, and i can definitely vouch that Roots to wings is better than Euro kids. I found that RTW in kumarswamy layout (blr) is better (ambience and material wise) than the euro kids kanakapura road.

    Comment by Sunita — October 28, 2009 @ 3:01 pm

  59. Sunita — said...

    Hi,

    I also suggest that if the kid is 3.5 yrs, then admitting the child directly to a school (DPS/ SRI KUMARANS…..) would be a better idea, cos many schools do not accept admissions in 1st standard. These schools have admissions for fresh students in 3 phases:
    1) in pre nursery / nursery - which ever the institute starts with
    2) 5th standard - many change schools due to syllabus.. and coping issues
    3) 8th standard - perfect for kids coming from ICSE to any other board.

    The main idea is to keep the student strength to the optimal level and to encourage its own KG / primary classes.

    Please also be careful of the play schools that insists on your child doing KG 1 and II cos many schools DO not entertain admissions for 1st standard even though the pre schools vouch for .

    thanxs

I am planning to enroll my daughter who is 17 months now for the June(She will be 23 months by then)Eurokids in ACES layout in Brooksfield. I have gone there once and the school looks OK/Good to me. But i am not sure how good they are? Do you or anyone have any expereince of this pre-school? Any feedback will be really appreciated.

    Hi, my son is 3 years now and he will be joining eurokids in June this year. I want to admit him into St. Joseph’s next year but they dont have LKG and UKG anymore. They start off with 1st std. So, my question is will it be a good idea to let him finish his eurojunior and eurosenior and then try for admissions for St. Joseph’s, will their method of teaching be sufficient enough to help him get an admission into the other schools for 1st std? Looking forward to a response.. thank you..

    I had undergone rough and bad experience with Euro kids, Sarjapur(Bellandur) Bangalore Branch.

    Issue what I have faced with them is very critical for any one looking for taking their education service for your child.

    There is no clear cut rule for transportation, transport outsourced to third party vendor and who has his own rule to dictate fee structure where school management have no say and they are not able to support parents.

    I wan to make point to other parents ensure transportation taken care by Euro Kid franchise, other wise better they can stop doing sensitive business like pre-school.

    * Hefty fees(Rs.800 for 2.5 KM) for transport and also you have to pay fee for whole year even if you are not using transport during summer holidays.
    * Apart from paying fee for 12 month, summer camp transport extra.
    * Transport vendor don’t provide bills for same.
    * your kid will be transported in LPG/CNG running unsafe vehicle.
    * Transport vendor behaves rude, euro kid center head is help less. Not sure how do they manage an institution with such arrangements.

    please ensure right thing before you admit your child because I had to discontinue my daughter studies because of all these issues.

    Dont ever send you kid to KIDZEE. I know about KIDZEE,Bangalore, vijaynagar branch.they dont have teacher with good ethics then what they can teach to our kids.I Know one teacher called Anjuladevi who

    always fights shouts and even she is not good in her personal life.Kids are justinnocentthey will learn what they will see around them.When the one who is teaching them will be a thief, abused person then what our kid will learn.so be careful when you decide where to send kid for learning as we send our kid to these school to learn some ethics and some quality to leave a respectful life.If the person who is teaching is don’t know meaning of ethics then what our kids will learn.

    i m a teacher so asimple advise to parents looking out for pre school . go in the classroom . to check the toys , teaching aids made by teacher. insist on meeting the class teacher. becoz in asame school two same classes are not same due to diff. personalities of teacher. and follow ur gut feeling if u sense anything wrong take immediate action as any negative a child goes through at this age is going to have alife long effect on his/her personality don’t go by the advertisement pls.

    Thank you for this great review. I just visited the Eurokids centre near my residence in Basaweshwarnagar. Though I liked their teaching methodologies, I found the place small and a little unkempt. Anyway, I was also looking for mother-toddler activity centres since my kid is only 1.4 year old now. Do you know of any in Bangalore? Also, do you know if kids have a problem getting admission to regular schools after pre-schooling in the kinds of Eurokids? If so, is it better to put them into the pre-primary divisions of the bigger schools? Thanks in advance for your help..

    Hi ,
    Please dont put your kids@kidzone.
    teachers in this playgroups are bullshit fellows. Trust me they are having the maximum no.of holidays, compare to any other playschool in the city. hardly the staff will spent only 1 to 1.5hrs with the kids.they dont inform parents that what are the daily activities they are teaching the children. if you want to waste the money, and to spoil your kid’s study, go to kidzone.

    please dont opt for kidzee brookefield- This school seems like just a business. First of all admins don t allow parents to get in the school when the kids are there. Teacher student ratio is very poor. Most of the teachers are not professional and dont pay proper attention to kids. Some kids are born talented, so please dont give credit to the school for such kids. If you leave those kids, the rest of them dont get much from the school and the teachers there. They will spend loads of money in show-offs, so please dont get carried away by all these. They dont even meet the basic standards of hygiene and health. I have personally come across parents who say that after going there, their kids have become very notorious. They scream and even beat other children. who knows they are learning all these at school. Overall a poor pre-school, i would say.
