Best CBSE Schools in Chennai with Pre-KG

Many CBSE schools in Chennai have pre-KG admissions only, for children who are at least two years and six months at the time of admission. This is a list of the best CBSE schools with Pre-KG admissions for you to consider.

Many families where both parents are working would prefer to enrol their children in a reputed school at the pre-KG level. Several Chennai schools affiliated with the CBSE board take in kids at the pre-KG level. Some only have intakes at pre-KG, so kids are not accepted at the LKG level if they do not enrol when they are 2+ at the time of admission. Here is a look at some of the best CBSE schools in Chennai that accept pre-KG admissions.

DAV Public School, Velachery

The well-known DAV Public School in Chennai's Velachery area, accepts children who are at least two years six months of age at the time of admission.

Bala Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School

Bala Vidya Mandir at Gandhi Nagar, Adyar accepts pre-KG admissions as long as the child lives within a five kilometres radius of the school. Kids in the pre-primary and primary sections are required to wear a uniform on Mondays, though on other days there are no uniform rules.

The Bal Vidya Mandir has is a special English Lab that is available for kids to learn language skills.

In pre-KG levels, children at Amrita are not burdened with a heavy workload, and they do not bring back a lot of homework from school. The focus is not so much on imparting textbook based knowledge. The emphasis is more on play-based early skill development in school. This technique of teaching/learning has been found to be beneficial in the long run – as the right skills for advanced learning are honed on at a young age.

Maharishi Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School

Another school that deserves mention on this list is the well-reputed and top-performing Maharishi Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School in Chetpet. The school follows a holistic pattern for teaching, based on the tenets of ancient India. Students of MVM are taught yogasana, transcendental meditation and pranayama as part of the syllabus.

The school has branches in the Chennai region at Sriperumpudur, Mambakkam and Itungattukottai. It also runs a residential school in Kancheepuram district. The school has many campuses in neighbouring Karnataka, as well.

Each of the aforementioned schools has a different policy on admission, so parents must take care to ensure their children are eligible prior to applying for admission to pre-KG in Chennai CBSE schools. Most schools begin issuing admission forms, with a small charge, by end October/early November of the year preceding the year that admission is being sought. Preference is given to students who have older siblings in the school and to those staying close to the schools.

Getting your child admitted into one of these elite schools is no mean task. It is in your interest that you apply for admission in a number of schools, instead of just one. The years spent in preschool are some of the most impressionable years for children, and it is important to choose their school with care.

The schools listed above provide school transport for pick up and drop of students on specified routes.
