Saraswathi Kendra Learning Centre runs the following programmes for the benefit of children, teachers and families.
Basic Reading and Writing Programme
The pre-school scheme is tailored for children between the ages of 3 to 9 years. By special request from heads of private schools, pediatricians and neurologists, admission is granted to help, at an early stage, children with learning problems. Basic reading and writing programmes on alphabets, numbers and social development, necessary for coping in school, are conducted. After the successful completion of this programme, many children are ready to return to a regular school.
Alternate Schooling
This is run on a regular school pattern, working 5 days a week. The Centre has been handling children between the ages of 10 and 18 years. The students are, however, fitted into varying levels, such as Primary, Junior and Preparatory, for each subject to suit their academic level. The routine includes yoga, academics, sports/games, art and craft, puppetry, role-play and music classes. Other life help skills are developed by encouraging the children to participate in day-to-day activities of a public/commercial nature like budgeting, cooking, visiting public offices (bank, post office, etc.), hospitals, etc.Personality development is nurtured and inter-personal skills are taught through individual counseling and constant encouragement to actively participate in the classroom sessions.

Saraswathi Kendra has an integration programme by which children who achieve competency to fit back into the normal school routine are returned to their respective schools.This idea has proved popular with the heads of various schools in the city. Saraswathi Kendra keeps a regular follow-up of the progress of these children.

Timings: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Assessment and Evaluation Programme
A series of psychological tests, intelligent quotient tests and other evaluation tests are regularly conducted for school children, on behalf of pediatricians and schools. They undergo diagnosis and assessment for IQ, psychological problems and learning disabilities.
