At CSED, we give free education to all children. At present CSD has 60 students from age three onwards, while at Maitri there are 12 infants from seven months of age upwards. We provide a special language-oriented environment for the children with qualified teachers and well-equipped classrooms. On an average, it costs us about Rs 48,000 per year to educate a child. We also give our children a mid-morning snack of milk and bananas and a balanced midday meal, at no extra cost, to ensure that they get good nutrition and are alert and attentive at school. Our school bus shuttles between 12 stops everyday, picking up children to give them some respite from otherwise long travel hours. It also sees them through field trips, overnight camps and picnics.
