‘Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire’ – W.B. Yeats

It is with this vision that Kalpavruksha commenced it’s journey in 2015. In today’s highly competitive world, we felt the need for a more humane system of education. The Steiner curriculum adopted by the school works towards this through the three fold approach of working with the Head, the Heart and the Hands.

We trust that our vision and mission statements resonate with you and we look forward to a long and fruitful journey ahead.

"I am struck by the fact that the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think that the same is true of human beings. We do not wish to see children precocious, making great strides in their early years like sprouts, producing a soft and perishable timber but better if they expand slowly at first, as if contending with difficulties and so are solidified and perfected. Such trees continue to expand with nearly equal rapidity to extreme old age" - Henry David Thoreau
