Which one is a good option for Pune.??

Maverick said...

There's one school in Pune, Hadapsar called Sandbox. Little-known but probably the best for your child. I went to check it with a friend and was damn impressed with the curriculum,the methodologies, the ideas and the way they keep the kids. Since its just a year old, its not that wellknown in the city. But all the students there are out of word-of-mouth referrals. The director there has a lot of experience and is managing it on her own. There is her personalized attention and involvement in the school and the teaching. We met parents who were all praises about how the school and especially the director helped her kid and has worked wonders with her. Truly the best possible school in the area. The fees is also reasonable, a lot of books are imported, teaching methodologies are by far the best. Medium is English and apart from studies, overall development is superb!!! So forget Kidzee and other flashy schools,go for Sandbox.
