We at Alokdhara are determined to gift Kolkata an educational institute based on INCLUSION. Kolkata lacks Inclusive schools and despite the good efforts of a handful of schools enough is not being done to promote this concept. At Alokdhara we bring bring both typical and atypical children together under the same roof. They are all children learning, playing, and singing in an environment that is the result of using the most relevant teaching methodologies to ensure special children learn to deal with their difference in a social framework not geared for any differently abled individual while our typical children are taught to be sensitised towards their special classmates, along with their three Rs. That to us is real inclusion and where the foundations of a society with real empathy lie.
‘The earlier the best ‘ is our dictum at Alokdhara where we ensure children who are toddlers to children who are six years old receive the best education to prepare them for a future that is likely to be highly competitive. We also have a very high teacher-student ration unlike in most mainstream schools so children get very close attention at a period in their lives when their personalities are shaped. While Alokdahra does not offer a pathway to education that is linked to education board certificates, our students have been accepted by some of the city’s best schools. What we do offer however is a chance to fly in their ‘Butterfly zone’ (the garden) or create their imaginary worlds in their ‘Feel Good’ zone, the indoor play area. A child feeling particularly distressed, and this can happen with special children, can seek solace in the XXXX room. And in the classroom all our bright students gather to receive an education that is tailored to suit their individual needs as best as possible.
