Bangalore Moms : Calling for HELP !!

December 27, 2007 at 10:41 am | Posted in Day Care | 4 Comments

Bangalore has so many so many young working moms. Why don’t we have some good day cares and playschools. I have not seen even a single daycare/playschool with enough space , confident and capable staff. Either the place is small or dark. Or the staff is new and inexperienced. Not a single place with a lawn.

I really need help. Infact we can help each other. Please list down a few places here. Lets compile a list of “Playschool and Daycare” here. Please leave me names as comments and I will publish those here.

Here is what I know :
Sparrows Care , HSR Layout – DayCare and PlaySchool
Positives
1. DayCare and PlaySchool in one Premises
2. Commodious and Clean
3. Good Cots and Matresses
4. Freshly cooked Food
5. Camera , so that we can see baby from our offices.
6. Lot of activities with all kinds of toys.

Negatives

1. The owner is not experienced for running a day care and sounded too theoritical.
2. Felt like she was insisting too too much on schedule and I am not sure that kids can be programmed to a schedule so well (includes food and sleep timings) and how good is that for their normal physical and more importantly physcological growth.
3. Diapers , why will anyone bother for potty training when baby is in diaper.
4. TV, who wants little kids hooked to TV.
5. Staircase inside the house.

Baby’s Day Out , Basavnagar,HAL -DayCare
Positives
1. The Old Lady is well experienced ,not only being old , running the place from 2 years.
2. Baby will get a homely environment.
3. No Diapers , so faster potty training
4. Baby’s routine and food will not be changed much , just that he will need to get adjusted to new place.
5. Kid :Adult ratio is good.

Negatives
1. No planned activities. Baby will just spend time as he/she wants.
2. No Playschool
3. 2 kms inside the main road.
4. Small space , no open area.

VidyaArambh, Outer Ring Road – DayCare and PlaySchool
Positives
1. Spacious
2. The director was focussed and planned the schedule well.
3. No Diapers
4. Ecomomical compared to others

Negatives
1. The Daycare was across the busy road
2. No open area to play
3. The day care teachers were not confident enough.
4. Staircase inside the house.

Vibgyor High, Marathalli – DayCare and PlaySchool
Positives
1. Spacious and open. Lot of space to play
2. Play School was satisfactory

Negatives
1. The Daycare was not a facility but a priveledge given. No Matress , no furniture , no toys.
2. Food was out sourced from a caterer and they were already complaining about it being spicy.
3. Expensive
4. Approach road has no “road” and has no lights.

  1. finding a good day-care/creche/play-school/school is the biggest challenge that young parents in metros face today. and if its a working couple the problem only gets worse!

    navneet publications publishes a mum’s guide which has a lot of useful information for young parents about all such resources. there is one specifically for bangalore called – Bangalore Mums’ Guide (ISBN 81-243-0905-1)

    check it out and i hope you find something there.

    i think its a great idea to start a group of like-minded mums 🙂 who can help each other out with such useful info and tips.

  2. Oh no Swathi..your inputs are good..I am in hyderabad and I am in the same situation..looking for a good day care..

    3. Prayag in Padmanabhanagar: http://www.prayag.in/
    4. Various Jumbo Kids in the city.
