Anurag Vij, Founder and Director The Chintels School, Kanpur

Beginning the noble journey of imparting knowledge by setting up a school in 1988, Anurag Vij was formerly serving as a Principal in a pre-school when she realized her innate bent towards the teaching profession. Vij took the plunge to attain her dream of imparting quality education to children by initiating a kindergarten school by the name of The Chintels School. In a short span of time, Vij,with her hard work, grit, and determination, was able to get affiliation from the CISCE board for her school. Acknowledged for her exceptional qualities and praised widely by her team of teachers and students, Vij is an exemplary leader in the field of education. She is on a relentless mission of creating an atmosphere of learning that children enjoy and one that encourages them to discover and express their talents to the fullest.

A Change-Maker with a Distinctive Perspective

According to Vij, having the opportunity of educating children is a rare privilege but along with it comes a huge responsibility to provide the best possible all-around development of a child. Abiding by this mantra, Vij, at The Chintels School, directs her team to bring in the teaching practices, which suit every child's learning requirements. "When a child is sent to school, the parent in a way gives unto you his or her most precious thing. It's for us now to nurture these cocoons into butterflies to fly freely in this world," says Vij. Continuously striving towards excellence, the status that The Chintels School has earned over the years is the testimony of Vij's determination and passion towards education.

Grown by leaps and bounds since its establishment, The Chintels School has two campuses nestled in Kanpur, the second largest city in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Both campuses foster a culture of 'life long learning', through adopting comprehensive curricula and pioneering pedagogical strategies. Encumbered in an evolving educational landscape, these campuses assist the students in applying creativity and innovation in their learning process. Students are prepared to think critically, to adapt to new technologies and ways of learning, and apply their learning to real-world situations. The Chintels is known as one of the most popular schools in the city owing to its commitment to making a genuine difference in the lives of many young minds. Conducting classes from Playgroup to 12th standard, the school makes sure that the little buds bloom into fine human beings tomorrow.

Vij opines, "Nothing is more gratifying than the fact that you are not only helping the parents to raise their wards in a perfect manner, but also contributing to the nation and the world at large by cultivating rational citizens." The teachers at the school are sufficiently trained to take complete care of the overall growth of the students. The teaching methodology that Vij promotes in the school is a unique amalgamation of traditional classroom instruction methods and breakthrough technology.
