Sunday Bala Vihar

In the center of the Amrta Balamandira building is a spacious hall called Sarasvati Nilayam. Bala Vihar children assemble in this hall for the first 30 minutes where they jointly recite prayers, sing Bhajanas and listen to stories before leaving for their respective classrooms. A number of small deities are located on both sides of the Sarasvati Nilayam hall. At the front of the hall is a large murti of Goddess Sarasvati. Each grade from Pre-K to Grade 12 has its own classroom and curriculum for the year. Each grade has a teacher, a co-teacher and one or more teaching assistants. Bala Vihar classes are also held each Sunday, from 8:50 AM to 10:30 AM and from 11:20 AM to 1:00 PM.
