Review Of Medhaam Preschool (and daycare) Gurgaon

Posted on: August 4, 2010


Medhaam Preschool (and daycare) Gurgaon

C Block (behind Rakshak towers),

South City 1 Gurgaon, Haryana 122001 – 0124 4379900

Review/About: Medhaam Preschool is a newly opened pre-school in Gurgaon’s South City 1 and one visit to the school does give you a feel that it is surely going to come up as a promising option in pre-schools in the city in near future.

Following are some of the features that really made me feel that it will be a good choice for parents in future.

a)      Its location – Prime location based in South City 1’s residential complex.

b)      Infrastructure and Building – It’s a 3 story school with really spacious classrooms and a basement area. The pre-school also has open area, play area for kids, gardening etc. Lot of emphasis is given on outdoor games (splash pool, swings, and kid’s toy cars with its own driving area), which is a plus point.

c)      No rigid curriculum is followed but a mix of Montessori method (I could see lot of Montessori equipment like beads etc), Play way and even a lot of emphasis to story telling, puppet shows and they even have an Art Room, which just has art equipment.

d)      The school has a highly experienced Principal Ms Nita Datta, who was earlier with renowned schools like DPS and iDiscoveri in Gurgaon.

e)      Student Teacher ratio – 8:1

f)        I really liked the design of the school w.r.t to washrooms. Each class had a low-height wash-basin (meant for washing hands) INSIDE THE Classroom itself to encourage children to wash their hands every time they come inside the classrooms. And this is done in a singsong manner where a small rhyme is recited (This is the way I wash my hands, wash my hands) every time the child washes his/her hands.

g)      The washrooms have low level toilet seats especially for kids. Separate washrooms for girls and boys, and looked pretty neat and clean.

h)      The school also scores another plus point on security. It has CCTV for round-the-clock surveillance and also uses Swipe Card Entry to ensure children’s safety and security at all times.

i)        All school sends regular weekly updates on Child’s progress and also ensures a PT meet every 3 months. But if a parent has any concerns, they can meet their respective teachers after school hours any day.

j)        The school does have a Day care facility till 6:30 pm.

k)      The school provides meals and the fee charged (see below) is inclusive of all meals. One look at the kitchen does give a neat and hygienic look.

Now A Few Negative Points

  1. If one has to go to activity rooms (upstairs) or the car play area (basement) it needs lot of stair climbing and keeping in mind the age of children, it is a little matter of concern. Wish they find a solution to it.
  2. Because of the rains and new construction, the rooms in the basement had some seepage issues. Though no classrooms were conducted in these rooms and all the activity was going on it ground floor rooms, this is just what I noticed. I am sure they would soon come up with a viable solution to this small issue.
  3. Since the school has recently started functioning, there are very few kids as of now. I could see only one girl in nursery class. And this isn’t really healthy for overall development of kid. So I would suggest waiting a few more months to get your child admitted in nursery class, so they have few more kids. I am sure the school will pick-up pace soon!
  4. The fee is slightly on the high end. My personal view-point, you may differ. But given the facilities and infrastructure the school is providing, one can give the figures a miss!

Human Touch

Ever since I have come back from the school, one image has stayed in my mind and that is of the Principal of the school – Ms Dutta, sitting in the Toddler’s group (classroom) with a small girl in her lap and singing her the poem..Machli jal ki raani hai…. Needless to say, I was impressed (and touched) beyond words.

I have been to so many pre-schools but this is the first time I have come across the Principal of the school sitting so closely with the kid. Most of them are outside in their office, leaving the rest to junior teachers.

Same “human touch” was visible in day care are. The in charge of day care (sorry forgot her name) was a lady who was holding a small baby (must be 1 year old) in her lap and telling her stories, talking to her. This is surely commendable!

I hope that the school maintains such “human touch” even the number of kids rise in future.

Consider these before finalising over preschool:

1. Equipments used
2. Curriculum
3. Delivery methodology
4. Space per sq. ft available to the child
5. It should be a pure preschool and not a part of mainstream school

If Medhaam Play school in Gurgaon, follows these, you may take admission.

Deepti

Thanks for your valuable suggestions..really appreciate them

I live in Sector 23 and would join work in DLF Phase I, in October. I have seen a few preschools+ days cares en route and have shortlisted 2- Medhaam/ Crystal.

Just wondering if there is something suitable near home…near sector 23, Gurgaon…Any suggestions please?

I have heard of a play school/ creche near Usha Stud farms in sec 23, but couldnt find it- they take only a select few kids….can anyone help with the name and contact details for this one?

I stay in palam vihar and am also trying to shortlist on payschools. I have checked out medhaam which i really like but my only issue is the distance. The other one which seems nice is called Eureka in Palam Vihar Block C-1. The one is Usha stud farms is as follows
http://www.gnosticcentre.com/lavenir.asp
.The location is amazing but we decided against it as the language skills of the teachers is not what we expected. Do let me know what you have found out and finalised.

Thanks Pooja,

I went to a few more places and have finally setted on Medhaam….its a bit far, but that seems like the only sanechoice to me right now.

I may have to drive an extra 3-4 kms to and from work, but it’s worth it if it gives me peace of mind…

Hi Moloy
Morning Glorie is quite close to your place. We are in South City I, on the main road itself where the metro track ends, so would be barely 5-10 minutes driving distance from your place (depending on traffic).
Website mentioned in the previous comment so you can get some preliminary idea.
If you think the location suits you, we can talk further?

Thanks
Shilpa

Hi Smriti
I don’t know if you are willing to go till South City I, but if the location suits you basis home and work place, then you can visit Morning Glorie. We are quite close to the metro station, and on the main road itself, so you don’t have to go too out of the way. We provide a loving, caring environment, all meals, and a stress free environment for your kid.
You can check out our website- http://www.morningglorie.in for more details, and we could take things further if you would like.

Thanks in advace
Khushboo

Hi Khushboo,
At Morning Glorie we take in kids starting at 6 months. Fee structure would typically depend on the timing you are looking at. Would love to have you visit to check out the facility if South City I is locationally convenient for you.

Hi, I am looking for a good pre school for my 2 year old daughter in or around sohna road. Kindly suggest.Thanks

I am in the same boat. I have already visited IDiscoverI, Pumpkin house, Eurokids,I-Play-I learn, Eurokids, Little Millineum,Shriram learning years, Fastrackkids……
If you are ok with mnothly fees of 6000 & bove, go for either IDiscoverI or Shriram Learning years. For monthly fees in the bracket 4000+,Pumpkin house seems the best bet till now.

since u have been to so many play schools may b u can help me find the right one too .. can u pls contact me

Hi! please help me with fee structure for a Creche … I’m looking for something in / around DLF phase 2 or Sushant lok 1 for my 11 month old.

pls suggest me a good play school for my kid 2 years old…..i stay in sector 17. wt is the best curricullum to follow in play school m totally confused…

Hi Pooja,
Hold on for some time,and let parents/others to reply for the queries.You are not giving a chance for any parent to think about other options.First thing is that do you have a video surveillance facility,so that a parent can view their child frequently.How much Child–care-taker ratio do you have?Do you have any medical facility (tie up on emergencies)
and do you have an official web site to co-ordinate with .With out giving these details ,you are advertising your home business.’This is a review forum not an advertising channel’.

Hi mentor
if you will notice in my previous posts, the website has been given in most of them. This is not a home business but an officially registered business, for which an official website is given which has all details. You may also notice that I have replied to individual queries that have been raised for specific locations, all replies to individuals. I understand that this is a review forum and not an advertising medium, but I hope you will also appreciate that there are parents who are clearly looking out for options, and I am only giving them one possible option. I hope you shall also appreciate that since this isn’t an “advertising channel” it hardly makes any sense for me to give out all details- in that case I shall most certainly be accused of advertising a business. All I intend to do here is let parents who are looking for creche know about us, and then it is there personal call to contact us or not.
I am not here to offend any one, or make this a personal propaganda, and I surely hope you shall appreciate the same.
Best regards

Hi, my daughter is 2.5 years of age . I am starting work in DLF phase 3 and would like to out her in some playschool/daycare. I will be travelling from AIIMS . Is there any good place near the metro stations on near DLF phase 3?

Hi.I have been sending my daughter to medham and I dont find it as great as mentioned out here.A lot of things are hidden from parents and it seems that they are more into money making business

Dear Rekha
I just visited it once and I am sure that staying there and having an experience is a completely different from what they try to project when you go to see the school. Pls elaborate on your experience so that other parents can be benifited from it.

Thanks.

Hello Parents,

U may want to try Bitsy Boots play school m Day care in sector 57, we provide pick n drop , nutritious food and all basic facilities u may visit as http://www.bitsyboots.com or contact at 9999915796.

We had a very bad experience with Medhaam! Our first impression was very good and we selected them. However, once they have your money the niceties vanish. They make you feel uncomfortable if you want to raise any concern. The food quality is below standard. The teachers don’t give proper care and attention to children. Children with great potential become average and average become poor due to lack of encouragement and attention. We had instances where they behaved rudely when we wanted to talk to them. Our ward used to complain about injuries due to harsh treatment from teachers and maids.

This is not worth your money and right choice for your child’s future.

I have a 9 months old bubbly daughter. She detest eating and going to strangers. Looking for a day care for her, which can keep her engaged also and can take due care of her overall development. We have a middle aged nanny who take care of her as of now. Please suggest a good day care for her, which can allow nanny also to be present there atleast, to accompany the child while travelling, even if not allowed to be with her all day long. We live in Sector 10 and i tavel to Cyber City DLF Phase -II for my work.

Thank You. Preeti.

Hi
I am looking for a daycare centre for my ten-month old daughter. I work near sector 29 and stay in sector 15 so would ideally want something in south city or sushant lok.

hey jaspreen u may chek out Bitsy Boots in sector 57

very useful review.i also think so fees structure is slightly high…

Hi All,

I dropped my 1.5 year old kid in Medhaam daycare. And he started falling sick daily.That clearly means that they are not able to keep the facility clean. Though the building from outside is good.My advice to you is that go for small home based daycares where 2-3 kids are there.

hey jaspreen u may chek out Bitsy Boots in sector 57
