The dream began with the taking of an oath in 1979 the International Year Of The Child, to reach and educate maximum number of children as possible, Mrs. Shobha Tawde's (The founder of the R. L. Tawde Foundation Trust) farsighted vision and long years of dedicated work and perseverance has made that dream come true. She set up a mini playschool when the playschool concept was rare even in the developed cities. The beginning was with a handful of children and a dream. Now the dream has materialized into a well-established institution with an aim to educate our children using child oriented teaching. Every school has its own yardstick to gauge its accomplishments such as laurels earned by the academically inclined students and sports trophies won by the physically fit. Our accomplishment has been in educating children so that they may be able to think independently and constructively having discovered their true talents.
Our aim is not to just provide a good academic education but one that is value based. The world has become a very competitive place but our aim is not to prepare students to merely compete with others but to discover themselves first.
True to the Indian philosophy the more one knows about one self the better one can compete with others. We lay a substantial stress on the development of physical and mental skills, the enhancement of the power of concentration. Emphasis is laid on the building of strong characters to withstand the inevitable pressures of tomorrow's world. We have always aimed high and have achieved our goals without sparing any efforts. Our highly reputed institution has already instilled confidence in the parents community.
Moreover we are open to valuable suggestions from parents and experts through regular interaction with the faculty members, and strive to improve with an effective system of self-assessment. Our record spells out that for our mission the sky alone is the limit.
