It is the mission of the Admissions department to inform and admit qualified students to Victorious Kidss Educares Pune in a professional and forthright manner, while maintaining the integrity of the school. We aim to ensure that prospective families understand the VKE mission, philosophy and community. We also strive to give them a good initial understanding of the IB programs. All are encouraged to visit the school’s website to learn more about the School ,its unique philosophy and International Curriculum.
The Admissions department comprises the Access Coordinator &Admissions Coordinators, who report to the Vice - President of the school and are assisted by Admissions Assistant.When appropriate, additional members of staff are also consulted.
Applications for school admission are accepted throughout the year. Families seeking admission in Pune for their child(ren) are advised to apply as early as possible as certain classes fill up quickly. Also a lot of attention is given to the balance within a class regarding gender, language, specific needs, etc., especially when classes are close to full.
Previous experience with the IB programs is an advantage, but is not a pre-requisite for admission. If a student broadly corresponds to VKE admissions criteria, but is currently having difficulty reaching his or her full potential, the student may be admitted. .In certain cases, the child may be advised a program of additional support. This may include, for example: Individualized Personal and Social Education, Counseling, Learning Mentoring, and/or other kinds of learning support as appropriate. Such decisions remain, however, entirely at the discretion of the School.When a decision has been taken on a candidate’s application, parents will be notified of the decision by email or telephone within 24 hours.
While VKE school in pune is proud to have a Learning Support program, the number of students to whom it can be offered is limited by the resources it has available at any given time. Parents or guardians of any applicant having a specific need must submit complete reports with the Inquiry Form .These might be psychological reports or speech and language reports. Students needing Learning Support may be admitted if it is believed that the school can offer appropriate support and that the children can be placed in the regular classroom. In the case where a specific need has not previously been identified, the school reserves the right to review the situation based on our capacity to address his / her needs.
Parents seeking admission for their children are invited to the Kharadi Campus Pune. On your visit you will participate in a free interactive counselling session that will detail the School's unique philosophy as well as the International curriculum that we have for children from 6 weeks of age.
