WELCOME ONE AND ALL to Chavara Darsan CMI Kindergarten

The word 'Kindergarten' literally means 'children’s garden'. Every child
is, therefore, taken care of and nurtured like plants in this garden. Along
with parents, who are really the first teachers in educating the child, we see
that transition of a child from home environment to school environment
is made as smooth as possible. We follow 'Learning by Doing' method
through creative activities in order to meet the developmental needs of children.
As part of our vision, a child is motivated to learn with pleasure to
be spiritually oriented, socially acceptable, physically healthy, emotionally
balanced, environmentally sensible, verbally sound, logically alert, artistically
talented and rhythmically graceful. Here, all 'play, learn and grow
together' and become beloved children of God and parents. A few areas of
