We invite you to consider this viable educational option...
The Rudolf Steiner’s early Childhood Programs provide a nurturing foundation for the growing child. Our curriculum strives to meet the needs of children and their families. A young child is a wellspring of imagination and activity. We strive to surround the child with beauty and simplicity. The quality of the environment is integral to its goals for the children.
Our Early Childhood programs are non-academic in nature; we believe that through our daily activities a strong foundation is laid for future academic success. We have two programs with one meeting the other- multi aged kindergarten and infant program.
"Receive the children with reverence, educate them with love, send them forth in freedom." - Rudolf Steiner
Bonafide Kindergarten is an extension of the family experience, an intermediate step for the children between home and formal schooling. Here, young children acquire the confidence and discipline they will need for the challenging academic work of the grade school.
BWK is home to three multi-age early childhood classes with children ages two and half through five combined. Multi aged groups are promoted to emulate the environment where older children are able to do things with and for the younger ones.
Kindergarten lays a strong foundation for each aspect of the child—physical, intellectual, social, moral, and creative. Our daily activities—Circle Time, story time, imaginative play etc —are all carefully planned and carried out with the needs of the children in mind. Our daily rhythm balances periods of free play with times of more directed activity.
This is a wonderful opportunity to have a first-hand experience of our Early Childhood Program. We believe that the parents and caregivers of children have one of the most important jobs in the world. So we offer this program to nurture and support those who care for babies and young children.
Our Growing together program is for parents with their babies from newborn to age two. Expectant parents are also welcome to participate. We explore parenting challenges and share ideas about how to create a home life that supports healthy and joyful growth.
Parent Child Classes meet on Tuesday, Thursday mornings and include a light snack. There are a few spaces reserved for families who need five-day child care from Monday to Friday.
Care Programs serve the families of Bonafide by offering the same nurturing, pedagogical impulses that guide the child’s day at our kindergarten. The child’s experience should be one harmonious day. The focus of the afternoon is rest, healthy play and good food. The intent is not to structure this time with a whirlwind of activities, but rather to provide a secure daily rhythm within which the child is free to explore options.
Every summer has a story and memories are just waiting to happen. ..vacation is a world where there are no locks on the doors or the mind or the body. So its good to talk about and join Bonafide Kids enrichment Program.
The curriculum for the program is designed around a theme. Colour the world with Character, Campers will work with a variety of art mediums, developing a range of creative skills. From April right up to May with an electric mix of activities giving the child an opportunity to explore, entertain and enjoy.
The goal of this camps is not just to pass time in summer and is not a ‘me-too having summer camp’, but to enhance both soft and academic. Kindly note that the sessions are for a limited number of children and handled by professionals.
Bona fide curriculum spring from the understanding of holistic development of a child. This deeper understanding is taken into account in all the special subjects that we offer.
By practicing KALARI & YOGA, children can learn how to exercise, develop confidence, and concentrate better. It is beneficial to children of all ages. It enhances Physical Flexibility, refines Balance and Coordination, develops Focus and Concentration, boosts Self-Esteem and Confidence and strengthens the Mind-Body Connection.
The world of the child is full of color and activity. At Bona fide, ART is an intrinsic part of our curriculum. The specific HAND WORK taught here also “grows with the growing child.” Knitting and other handwork projects play an important role in the development of fine motor skills, inner calm, and intellectual clarity.
The spoken word is the key to LEARNING LANGUAGES in the early years.. Songs, poems, rhymes, tongue-twisters, counting and group games—all these foster group knowledge of the languages. There are many important inner skills to be learned in the study of MUSIC. The discipline of practicing with an instrument helps a child find the inner discipline to face other challenges in life.
"I just wanted to take a moment to extend our thanks and appreciation. It's been nearly one and a half years now since my son became a part of Bonafide. it was like a second home. He loves going to Bonafide each and every day and we can tell he truly loves his experiences there. As working parents there is no better feeling than knowing your child is happy and being taken great care of. I want to thank Bonafide for providing such a high level of quality care and would recommend this facility to any parent. One of the exciting things about Bonafide, and their play-based philosophy, is the way they invest in uncovering a child’s natural curiosity.At Bonafide, the staff works hard everyday with a smile on their face and a lot of determination to help children become self confident, learning to respect the others, to become mentally curious and stimulated, to enjoy the learning process and to appreciate life. We are more than pleased at what we see at Bonafide. Congratulations to all the staff! Great job!!!"

When we relocated from USA, we were really perplexed about which kindergarten to be selected for our two and half year old daughter Ammu. BONAFIDE- proved the right choice. By far the best in city. Its unique curriculum makes the difference. All the best to Bonafide family - Reshma Ganesh (Mother), Qatar
"When I think of Bonafide, I think of warmth. From the warmth of the teachers and their caring of our young children. Their words and activities. There is some magic about this kindergarten" - Anonymous
