Originally established in August 1979, Ananda Marga Kinder-Prep School was a kindergarten 4 children. The school expanded over the years and moved to a new location at 12 Cerieffe Road. The new mission and dedication were put in place to establish a stronger kindergarten to meet the new challenges of this era. Ananda Marga translated literally means “The Path of Bliss”- the way that leads both the individual and society onto its highest goal.
At Ananda Marga, we believe that education is one of the five basic necessities in life. Therefore, all individuals should be given the opportunity to learn in an open-minded, ethical and progressive environment, regardless of economic status, religion, class, race or gender. Every school needs a guiding principle for its students, in the same way that every child needs a loving parent.
At Ananda Marga Kinder-Prep, this principle is based on the philosophy of Neohumanism, put simply Neohumanism is the extension of the love we naturally feel toward other human beings this includes animals, plants and all other forms of existence. Each and every school day we work to develop the highest qualities of humanity namely concern for others, compassionate love for all creation, spirit of service, thirst for knowledge and awareness/acceptance of diversity.
We believe that Neohumanistic education is most effective when it begins at a very young age in primary and pre-school years.
