CHAMAN VATIKA – a 'Gurukul' for girls is a befitting tribute to the great thinker and educationist.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
It is a popular saying that education is the building block of any great economy and in order for an economy to be great; its youngest generation requires not only to be well-informed but well-learnt because future of that nation undisputedly depends on its children. Education instills in them the capability and competence to carry forward the legacy of their ancestors and help in the growth and development of their nation. This indicates towards the necessity for educating children not only be teaching them the course subjects but by inculcating in them right knowledge, skills and time-tested values to make them better human beings with honest, committed, dedicated, tolerant, creative and constructive character.
Chaman Vatika - a 'Gurukul' for girls believes in nurturing the character of the children in a way that they are in a position to bring out the best in them. We strongly believe in the fact that, if you teach a boy, you teach only a boy, if you teach a girl, you teach a family. At Chaman Vatika, we provide a balanced environment to the students, giving them the opportunity to learn through the best possible methods of education which are not only scientific but also creative along with instilling in them the Indian traditions and values, helping them deepen their roots for their healthy growth in all the fields.
