The senior group of children learns the art of reading and writing after which they take admission in the formal schoosl of their neighborhoods as far as possible according to their age and mental capacity.  Some students take keen interest during their studies in the non-formal education,  and they then perform very well during their formal schooling. Their course subjects include maths, Hindi, Bengali, English and other basics of learning. We give them every month the class test basing on what is taught to them.

The second group is taught with the aids of charts, maps and books. They are taught to read and to write as well. They are also taught English alphabets besides the lessons of numerals, names of animals and flowers. Reciting of poems is a part of their learning process. They perform very well in action songs which they enjoy very much.  They are given a chance to write numbers and alphabets on the black board which gives them self-confidence and courage in the presence of others. By taking part in group singing with the teachers, they get a sense of belonging and being part of the same family of learners.

On being admitted to the special school, the children are divided into various learning groups as per an assessment done on their mental, intellectual and other faculties and they are imparted training according to their deficiency and aptitude in learning by using special teaching aids and techniques. While conducting the assessment of the children, the teachers set a target for learning for each child. To evaluate the improvements made by the children, every three months the teacher does an assessment and accordingly the training module is formulated.
