The Child Education Society, the apex body of Bal Bharati Public Schools and other institutions of higher education, was set up in the year 1944 during the pre-independence era when the elders thought that Indian culture, heritage, tradition and ethos must be preserved and fostered. In order to achieve these objectives, it became obligatory for the Society to educate the young people. Thus, the Society was registered under the Registration of Societies Act, 1860.
Today the affairs of the Society are managed by the Board of Management consisting of eminent educationists and social workers. It is headed by Sh. L R Channa, an eminent educationist and a social worker, as the President of the Society. The society at present runs 25 institutions which include 15 schools, 07 Project schools in collaboration with the Indian Railways and National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and 03 institutions. Bal Bharati Public Schools are comprehensive, co-educational English medium schools. Hindi enjoys its place of pride as the National Language in the school curriculum. The schools built by the society are set in congenial surroundings. They are housed in modern attractive buildings equipped with all requisite facilities, well stocked libraries, laboratories, computers, audio visual equipment, facilities for creative arts, indoor and outdoor games and swimming pools.
Bal Bhararti’s educational philosophy is inspired by the maxim ‘Aa no bhadra kritvo santu vishwatah’. ‘ Let noble thoughts come to us from all sides’. It provides comprehensive education keeping in view the country’s rich heritage and cultural background and opens opportunities for the development of the different facets of the child’s personality.
Conscious effort is made to foster and love for the country and pride in its great heritage and tradition of tolerance epitomised in the noble phrase ‘Vasudev Kutumbhakam’ - The whole world is one family.
