Rajagiri Kindergarten is yet another of the many educational endeavors of the Fathers of CMI Congregation. The first indigenous religious Congregation in India did pioneering work in the field of education which aims at forming leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable, who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth.
The early years of life have been acknowledged as the most crucial for optimum development of an individual. Development is not simply the result of physical care but rather a feeling of total being well that arises from growing up in a healthy atmosphere of love, warmth and opportunities for learning. It was the realization that the foundations of living and learning must be laid in the early formative years of a child’s life that inspired this venture.
Rajagiri Kindergarten which has already carved a niche for itself in the field of pre-primary education, came into existence in June 1992. Set in a serene atmosphere, away from the din and bustle of the city, Rajagiri Kindergarten is an artistically designed edifice tastefully done up and equipped and provided with ample facilities for work, play and recreation. Manned by a team of trained, professionally competent, devoted and dedicated teachers under the over-all supervision of the CMI Fathers, the school really is an extension of their homes as far as the tiny toddlers are concerned.
Rajagiri Kindergarten – Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom
RKG is a response to the truth in the dictum, “Child is the father of man” (Wordsworth). Preparing a child for the tasks in life calls for a futuristic education. The proof of the realization of this futuristic dimension in its programmes is the fact that our kindergarten programme has come to be reckoned as the model for pre-primary education in the state, both in government and non-government circles.
Here, the development and educational needs of the children are met through a child-centred and activity oriented programme that provides ample avenues for experimental learning. The aim is to impart pre-learning skills while allowing the child the uninhibited freedom of a home atmosphere, to develop at his or her own pace. RKG is a home away from home.
