What You'll like:

  • Aarohi is not a school. It is a learning community and any child can be part of the community for any amount of time.
  • Life School has already started this journey with 11 children in the summer of 2009 at Geniekids in a small, residential house in Bangalore
  • Life School is a not-for-profit, public charitable trust run by a parent cooperative which is seeking support to set up the first model school
  • The physical environment of 5 acres of rural countryside with loads of resources.
  • The mental environment of self direction, self exploration and self reflection.
  • The social environment of community living.
  • The emotional environment of sensitivity, listening and acceptance
  • If during the child's stay the parents would like to accompany the child and stay with the child in the campus - you are most welcome.So for a five day week - total investment would be 4000 / other adults of Rs500/- per day (this includes food, boarding and lodging).
  • If the child is staying for more than one week - the child / adults can also stay for the weekend ( at stay expenses of Rs500 per )
