Nandanam is a crèche plus kindergarten for children between 2 and 6 years of age. Nandanam means ‘garden' in Sanskrit. It started in 2003, as Auroville's second kindergarten.

At Nandanam we begin with the understanding that the “first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught” and that “the teacher is not an instructor or a task master but a helper and a guide.” Keeping this in mind we work towards the integral development of the children focusing on their physical, mental, vital and psychic development, following the guidelines given by The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. We work a lot through projects since we feel that it is a very effective and holistic tool, starting with topics that are close to the children and widening the horizon each time.

We believe that once a child has acquired a thirst for knowledge and a need for self-perfection he can take charge of his education himself and the teacher can just be a guiding presence when required. We humbly aspire to do this to the best of our capacity.
