Dolna Day School welcomes you to its world of children - an environment that spells love, care and affection. Dolna creche provides safe custody for children of working parents, from the age of 3 months, right up to the age 18 years. Dolna Day School provides education all the way till the ISC examinations which are pre-university. We endeavour to facilitate the proper physical & mental growth of these children and provide for them- 'a home away from home'. Children get the opportunity of spending their free time beyond school hours fruitfully in the extra-curricular classes that are organized in the evening. They learn to share and care for others in their same age-group, some younger and some older as well.
The first creche in Kolkata was started by Smt. Madhusree Dasgupta in the year 1972 in the name of Dolna ( the Bengali word for cradle). The objective was to provide a "home away from home" for the children of working parents. By 1972 the number of working mothers in our city of Kolkata was already growing and they needed custodial care for their children. Dolna Creche and Dolna Day School (affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations) have been operating in South Calcutta for the past 40 years now, primarily for the benefit of these working parents.
The institution has never been allowed to grow to an unmanageable size at the cost of the quality of service that is offered. Presently, there are a total number of around 700 children only and a large number of them from the age-group of 3 months to 18 years remain at the creche and day-boarding for the better part of the day while the parents are at work.
