Brief History
Shishu Niketan was established in a rented room at Mayurmahal, Burdwan with only 4 students on 2nd Feb. 1974, as Pre-Primary school. At that time there was no Pre-Primary school in Bengali Medium at Burdwan Town. Within a short period the school earned goodwill from the guardians of the town and gradually upgraded upto Class IV class. Preliminary success encouraged the teachers and Managing Committee to go ahead with an ambitious aspiration to make the school an ideal educational institution of the town from Nursery to Higher Secondary standard under one umbrella for perfect fulfillment of Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary and Higher Secondary education for boys and girls. The first and foremost objective of the Managing Committee was to build up the institution an ideal healthy place for academic, cultural, social and physical development of its students. A group of dedicated teachers came forward with missionary zeal to translate the idea of the Managing Committee. With these sole aims and objectives Shishu Niketan Trust was formed and registered at the Sub-Registry Office of Burdwan on 16th Sept. 1979. That Trust deed concluded with following sentences "If the object and purpose for which the trust has been created hereby fail and cannot be fulfilled the assets of this trust and fund if any shall be transferred and make over to the Education Department of State Government and in default any member shall be at liberty to comply the same through court of Laws". It had been subsequently registered under Society Act 1961 in 1982.
