Our Philosophy

Bachpan - A Play School & Day Care Centre Manpada Thane

We believe that early childhood should be a period for the child to indulge in recreational and pleasurable activities. We provide a constructive and organised learning environment where the child is introduced to indispensable learning methods such as self-exploration and realisation. Toddlers are naturally very impressionable, curious and creative. We, at BACHPAN, constantly strive to further nurture these fundamental characteristics in our children through playful learning.

Our Vision

Inspire curiosity, independence and love for learning to help children become contributing members of the society.

Our Mission

Create a nurturing and play-based environment, build children’s self esteem and problem-solving skills, while fostering respect for self and others.

Our Values

Caring, Sharing, Love, Respect, Fun and Transparency.
