Why Us

The Rising Sun is dedicated to creating a superior kindergarten and playschool for young children in the heart of Salt Lake, Kolkata. We offer an intimate academic and social setting, and ensure that each child gets individual attention in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our school provides the best opportunity to nurture children in a loving and caring garden of harmony in the community. This is a co-educational English medium school with pre-primary classes where Hindi/Bengali is taught as per individual parents preference. We prepare our children for admission to different reputed high schools.

Emphasis is given on oral fluency from the beginning. We have been successful in placing our children in 35 top schools of Kolkata. Members of our teaching staff are very well qualified, Montessori trained and experienced. They have been working with young minds since the late 80s.

As the number of students in each class is restricted, the teachers provide a personal touch to help each child grow, progress and develop confidently. We work effectively with various Montessori apparatus to make the child aware of his/her immediate environment.

The curriculum is designed scientifically by keeping in mind the daily needs of children in a healthy environment. Music, dance, recitation, creative arts and story-narration play a vital role in our curriculum. Learning becomes more enjoyable through these techniques, administered using conventional as well as computer-based methods.

We encourage each child to explore the new world through the magic of Multi-Media which makes their lessons more exciting. Yoga for health, concentration, and good habit formation is integrated in our school curriculum to enrich the child’s wholesome development.

In addition to Merit Certificates for all children, the school also issues individual Yoga and Computer Certificates to all enrolled students. Book fairs organized by our school give an opportunity to our young toddlers to explore the world of knowledge.

The school has spacious, airy class rooms and a sufficient play area for the children. Organized trips to outdoor venues gives them the best opportunity to know the Nature. Through the Annual Sports meet, cultural programs and excursions we provide the best training to our little toddlers to face the outside world with confidence and joy.

What Parents say about The Rising Sun...

Abhimanyu's Parent

Abhimanyu had a fun filled time at the summer camp.. something he would look forward to in the otherwise dull summer days under lockdown... looking forward to many more of such beautiful sessions ❤️ thank you so much to the entire Rising Sun family
Akshat has learnt a lot this year, and that wouldn't have been possible without his teachers' guidance. I am very happy that he has got caring and loving teachers who teaches him well and makes him understand even through online sessions given the situation, which is really commendable and I have observed that the teachers give every child equal opportunity in class to speak or give answers, and they don't carry on until each student know the topics or lesson. There wouldn’t be a better school for my child and I thank you for working so hard for these young minds.
