BalVihar is a forum for teaching our children about the Hindu Religion, Culture and history in our temple premises. Our BalVihar in Kansas City is a free framed model with easy to follow curriculum. This program is organized by Hindu Temple of Kansas City. It serves the needs of the Indian community with over 50 students in and around Kansas and Missouri States

Balvihar is value based moral education, with an emphasis on Indian culture and Spirituality. The core human values imparted in Balvihar are Satya (Truth), Dharma (Right Action), Shanti (Peace), Prema (Love) and Ahimsa (Non Violence). These values are further simplified into sub values such as honesty, kindness, obedience, service etc. Teachers impart these values through age appropriate moral stories, role plays, games, arts and crafts and service projects. Guest lectures and field trips will also be arranged a few times every year.

Typically, in each class children are taught simple bhajans or shlokas. Older kids are taught vedas and stothras as well. Balvihar children are periodically blessed with the opportunity to lead bhajans during special functions at the Hindu temple. During major festivals, senior children are asked to give brief talks and presentations on the significance of the celebration.

Minimum age to enroll in the Balvihar program is 4 years. Children will be divided among 3 sections depending on their age/grade level. Both Classes will be held simultaneously from 9:30-10:30 AM on Sundays excepting holiday weekends and during summer break in local public schools.

"Fee for Balvihar is $25 per child per year"
