Commencement: June 1989
The pre-school program of Anand Balwadi was established for the “tiny tots” in the age group of 2.5 to 5.5 years.
Prior to admission in Nursery, children join the playgroup activity with their mothers for two months. In these 2 months, the mother & the child get acquainted with the school environment and the teacher. They also become aware about the curriculum of Anand Balwadi and its teaching methodology.
