National Bal Bhavan is an institution which aims at enhancing the creative potential of children by providing them various activities, opportunities and common platform to interact, experiment, create and perform according to their age, aptitude and ability. It offers a barrier-free environment with immense possibilities of innovation, minus any stress or strain.
With 30 crore school-age children, India's future as a global knowledge leader by the mid 2020's, is secure only when we nurture the creativity and potential of every child. The Founder Father of National Bal Bhavan Shri. Jawaharlal Nehru felt that the Bal Bhavan movement is the best national option to ensure this. He felt that the formal education system left little scope for the overall development of the child's personality. He envisioned National Bal Bhavan as a place which would fill this gap. Since 1956, Bal Bhavan have brought in children across gender class caste divides to nurture their curiosity and imagination, helping them to enjoy childhood and learn joyfully. The Bal Bhavan movement today continues to help children become future creative thinkers, designers,scientists,leaders, compassionate and responsible citizens who contribute to the society.
