In the year 1933, Shri Padam Chand started Happy School in Chooriwalan with only seven children. Many scoffed at the idea of a ‘good school’ in the dingy lanes. But Shri Padam Chandji was all set and determined to change the educational climate of schools in order to give the future citizens of our country a happy childhood.
He travelled widely met many educationists including Madam Montessori, studied various systems of education and realised that the biggest handicap was dearth of devoted teachers . In 1938 Happy Teachers’ Training Centre was born. It was recognized by Directorate of Education, Delhi and Punjab.
Meanwhile, the efforts to acquire land measuring two acres yielded results in 1953 and the foundation of Happy School was laid in Daryaganj, the heart of Delhi and its rich traditions.
