Our mission is to provide education to every child in India.

Education provides children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life. But worldwide, more than 2 Thousand children are unable to attend school.
The curriculum is planned on the monthly basis. Children are taught alphabetic, numbers, names of fruits, flowers trees. The learning is made joyful through storytelling, action songs and use of teaching aids etc. For the motor development children are encouraged to make articles of clay. Various extra curriculum activities are organized to develop the hidden talents of children. The principle of ‘Leaning by Doing’ holds a lot of importance at this stage. The children are given opportunity to collect the items such as leaves, flowers from their immediate surrounding thereby ensuring the application of knowledge the children lean in the balwadies.
