ECC initiated a Balwadi in 1978 in the neighboring village at Nellorhalli. The school now has 34 children. It works from Monday to Saturday from 8.30 a.m. to 3.0 p.m. Story telling, teaching songs, alphabets and numerals, games, are the main activities. Regular parent-teacher discussions are arranged to educate the parents of their responsibility in moulding the future of the young children. The school has the contact between the people of the village and us. This programme has been well accepted in the respective communities and their participation in it is really encouraging. The main objective of the Balwadi is to enable the children of the migrant workers in and around Nalloorhalli village to get an opportunity to go to school; to enable poor children of the Nalloorhalli village to secure the benefit of education; to inculcate values of life and principles of hygiene in young minds: to strengthen the Community Development programmes through medical camps, educational programmes; awareness creation programmes, etc.
