What is the fee structure?

You may email us at: info@saplingnursery.com to know about our fee structure for the year 2019-20.

My older son is an ex-student of Sapling. Does this mean that my younger son will get preference for admission?

At Sapling Nursery®, we give a preference to the admission of children who are siblings of children currently studying at Sapling. The reason for this is to make it easy on parents to arrange for drops, pick-ups and vacations.  We do not give preference to siblings of children who have already passed out of Sapling simply because it does not meet our reasons for giving preference i.e. convenience to parents.

I can see that your school bus service does not come to my building/area. What should I do?

The service is a common shuttle service and not a door-to-door service. In order to save time we need to have common bus stops. This ensures that the children spend minimal time in the bus.

In case the bus does not come to your building, you will need to bring your child to the nearest bus stop.
