After empowering Vidyamandir Trust to build the first English medium school of Palanpur, Shri Kirtilal Manilal Mehta presented it with another donation in 1989 through his charitable trust. This charity helped lay the foundation of an English medium kindergarten, that would use the same methods, which were used by the other kindergartens of Vidyamandir. Initially, it worked on the pedagogy introduced by Dr. Maria Montessori and Shri Gijubhai Badheka, but, later, it adopted newer and more effective teaching methods following the development of Pragna Abhigam in Gujarat.
The curriculum of this kindergarten is the perfect amalgamation of contemporary subjects, technology, value education, sports, and culture. There are individual resource rooms for each subject with the most delightful instructional materials; most of them are crafted by the teachers themselves.
Being a part of the Early Childhood Education Section, Smt. Menaben Manilal Mehta English Medium Balmandir is situated on the Parnakutir Campus, Shaktinagar, Mansarovar Road, Palanpur.
It has 126 students and a staff of 6.
The school hours are 8:00 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. from Monday to Saturday.
Note: The first & fifth Saturdays of every month are reserved for one-to-one parent-teacher meetings.
