"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you".
A civil engineer by profession dealing with sands, cements, concretes & chips practically for the entire life with a penchant for social work,
I founded DOLLS 'N' DONS in the year 2008 with the help of my family members.
The decision to start a preschool was wholly based on our intent to develop kids in a safe, secure, caring & disciplined environment. Initially we were in a quandary as to whether we would build our own school with our own curriculum or to start with a reputed franchisee. Subsequently we zeroed on the franchisee model and went ahead with KIDZEE and our school was renamed as DOLLS N DONS KIDZEE Chandrasekharpur, thus our journey into the far unsighted territory began.........
The school came into being in August 2008 with 11 kids and 3 staff members i.e. 1 coordinator, 1 facilitator and 1 supporting staff. Now it has blossomed to 135 kids with 16 staffs with 24-hour security, all AC classrooms, CCTV, library & indoor and outdoor playing area.
Our underlying principle hinges on three key core parameters:
Honesty and Integrity
Love, Affection and Highest Care
Discipline in relation to curriculum and Behavior
The last five years of building a solid & reputed institute with so many laureates and obstacles is extremely satisfying & we at Dolls N Dons believe that we have been able to fulfill the ambitions of many parents by way of moulding the small kids in a highest possible caring environment. The attachments with the kids, their love and affection have enriched and fulfilled our experiences greatly. When I reflect back, I feel proud that the school has been able to create an ambiance of home away from home and a single thought that always lurks in our minds is to give the best to the kids, to the parents and to the society. Dolls N Dons have been built on strong foundations and we believe in strong teamwork and creating a highly caring, safe & disciplined environment for our kids. We follow KIDZEE course modules but also borrow unique ideas from the best of the schools in the world such as American Embassy School, British School, UWC South East Asia, Australian School, Barker College, and other international schools without impairing "ILLUME" which distinguishes itself with its own programme "Every Child Is Unique".
Quoting Abraham Lincoln "Whatever you are, be a good one"
We will continue our journey.................
