Parents Speak

"To see our children wake up each morning and look forward to go to school is the first sign that there is something about the place that a young mind discerns, as a space she/he feels welcomed and accepted. Agreed, there have been moments of anxiety that many a parents chose to walk away from and take their ward along. We kept seeing this as part of the growth phase of any organization, especially one with a bold vision and an equally audacious execution plan. This phase would also come to pass.

Today, this is the 9th year for our children in Shikshantar. We are ever so happy that Shikshantar & we chose each other!"

Father of Surya


"When my husband and I elected to apply to Shikshantar for our children, we knew it would mean moving to Gurgaon from Delhi. When they got through, I had to quit my job and his commute grew to 1.5 hours each way. But every morning as we wake them to go to school and they spring out of bed, eager for another day, we smile. Because you cannot put a price on a child who is eager to go to school. ( Because there is no greater blessing than a school that lets your child evolve, grow, and blossom into the person he or she truly is. Because a child-centric education isn’t just good for your child, it is also good for you, and for society as a whole."

"My experience with Shikshantar over the last 5 years has been very satisfying as it has provided a strong foundation for my son as he has grown thru his formative years. The learning methodology has given him the opportunity to develop his learning, exploratory and inquisitive side thru his tenure here. He and now his sister continue to enjoy themselves."
