Sevabharathi Tamilnadu conducts free Balwadi schools catering to the needs of the village kids, who cannot afford to go to kindergarten classes in private schools. The students learn and grow in an atmosphere aligned with our culture, through a curriculum packed with games, rhymes and enacted short stories. Simple prayers are also taught. Since good habits and noble values are best inculcated at a tender age, special emphasis is laid on character-building. Reverence towards one’s parents and motherland is an important value that is strongly inculcated through the Balwadis.
