About Us

Children’s Foundation School was founded in 1982 by Mr Shourabh Mukerji with the revered blessing of Mother Teresa. The foundation stone was laid by Shri B.D. Pande, the then Governor of West Bengal.

Over the years, CFS has earned a reputation for itself for providing quality education that is child-friendly and value driven. CFS is a co-educational school which focuses on nurturing the innate qualities lying latent in every child with love and care so that they grow up to be happy, confident and successful individuals.

At CFS, students are given a variety of exposure to acquaint themselves with the world outside. Thus bringing them closer to renowned personalities from all walks of life has been a regular affair.

CFS has hosted several eminent personalities including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Dean of Westminster, Dr A.P.J. Kalam - former President of India, Dr. James M.Lyngdoh – former Chief Election Commissioner, Dr Abid Hussain – former India’s ambassador to the USA and Shri Shyamal Datta – former Governor of Nagaland.

The school is affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi. The first batch of students for the ICSE examination appeared in March 2020 and for the ISC examination in March 2022.

Our Vision

At Children’s Foundation School, we are committed towards dedicating the minds of our students to enquiry, their hearts to compassion and their lives to service. This is encapsulated in the School Motto – ‘ENTER TO LEARN, DEPART TO SERVE’.

Our Mission

Our aim is to impart a good standard of purposeful education and to nurture talent and create opportunities in a happy, stress-free environment.

On Equal Footing

At Children’s Foundation School (CFS), we strive to instil a strong sense of social commitment among our students and to open their minds to the needs of the underprivileged sections of the society. CFS currently supports 3 pre-primary and primary schools - called ‘Khelaghar’ in rural South 24 Parganas, West Bengal.

Even after 2 decades of intervention, rural child care centres in West Bengal have been unable to provide high quality care and education at the pre and primary school level, resulting in a large number of children being unfit for school at the age of 6 years. It has also led to a high incidence of dropouts in primary and elementary schools.

It is this lacuna that Children’s Foundation School (CFS) is trying to fill. ‘Khelaghar’ schools are also the nucleus from which various initiatives pertaining to nutrition, health and hygiene, social advocacy and community development have evolved.
