Rev. Sr Navya CMC (HEADMISTRESS)
Marian Kindergarten, Etawah, is a Catholic Christian Educational Institution run by the St. Thomas Educational and Medical Society, Etawah for the Christian children. However, we admit any child irrespective of caste, creed, religion and social status. Started in 1967, Marian Kindergarten intends to shape every child under its roof to a whole-some personality ensuring good character and love for humanity, under the exemplary guidance of its dedicated staff.
Admission to Marian Kindergarten is taken usually in the month of March. A child seeking admission should have completed three and a half years by March,31. The interested parents can register their wards’ names and obtain the Application Forms from the School Counter on payment of required fee on the dates normally announced a month in advance by the Administrative Authorities of the School. Thereupon, the duly filled Application Forms must be submitted on the dates fixed for the same. At the time of submission of Application, the date and time of interaction with the School Authorities will be intimated and on the date fixed for the same the Parents (both Father and Mother) along with the child for whom the admission is sought must report to the School Authorities for the interaction at the time fixed for the purpose.
The Result of interaction is, normally, announced in a week’s time and the Parents of selected children must take their wards’ admission before the last date fixed for it. Thereafter, no request will be entertained and against those vacancies waitlisted children will be admitted. At the time of Admission, a Birth Certificate from Nagar Palika or Gram Panchayat (for candidates from villages) must be submitted. The Certificate should be issued either by Gram Pradhan or Secretary. The date of birth and name once entered will not be changed later.
In the matters of admission, we neither entertain any recommendation nor accept any donation in cash or kind. The selection is always done on the basis of the smartness shown by the child at the time of interaction. It has come to our notice that some people pose as our agents and promise to secure admission on payment of money. If the child gets admission on his/her own merit the so called agent takes the credit and money; if not expresses his helplessness. So, be on your guard.
The details of Text Books, Curriculum, Mode of Evaluation, Syllabus, Uniform, Sports and Games, Co-curricular Activities and Competitions are given in detail in the students’ ‘hand book’ supplied to the KG children.
Marian Kindergarten receives no Government or private aid and the fees realised from students is the only source of revenue. To keep up with the rising costs and salary, fees are adjusted from time to time.
Rules Regarding Payment
Quarterly fees are payable at the Bank of India, St. Mary's Inter College, Etawah Branch, from 1st to 20th of every month between 10 a.m. and 12 noon. But, the Bank accepts no fee on Saturdays. Those who do not pay the fees on time will be charged a fine of Rs. 25/- per month. All accounts for the term must be settled in full before the beginning of the periodic test. A fine of Rs.20/- will be levied for a duplicate fee book. Parents will kindly ensure the safe custody of the receipts issued to them in proof of having made the payment.
Parents can meet the teachers every second Saturday. On other occasions parents may be allowed to meet the teachers only with the prior permission of the Head Mistress. After each Semester the parents will be called to meet the class teachers, on the date fixed by the school and progress reports of their wards will be issued to them. Progress reports and final results will be given only to the parents.
Co-Curricular and Extra Curricular Activities
Through co-curricular and extra- curricular activities, which are essential for the development of the whole person, we make all our efforts to help children develop their talents. Various activities include sports, cultural competitions, Baby King & Queen competition etc.
The wearing of prescribed uniform is obligatory. Children are allowed to wear colour dress on their Birthdays. The following is the uniform now in force.
Method of Evaluation
With a view to reduce the burden on children at their very young age we have done away with the system of examinations. This also saves children and parents from the examination related anxieties But, in order to have an evaluation of students, which is equally important, we follow a continuous evaluation process under which different tests are conducted at various time intervals.
Summer: 07.30 a.m. to 12.25 p.m.
Winter: 08.30 a.m. to 01.25 p.m.
On request, Transfer Certificate may be issued at any time of the year. But, no Leaving Certificate
will be issued until all dues to the School are cleared.
