“...Towards empowering students to create solutions for a happy and fulfilling life!”

About us

“If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”    - Rachel Carson

CMS Child Wellbeing Department is the brain child of our Respected Founder- Director cum Child Psychologist Dr. Bharti Gandhi and our President Prof. Geeta Gandhi Kingdon. ‘For Making Every Child Good and Smart’, the Child Wellbeing Department was created with the appointment of school counsellors in all the campuses.

This department seeks to create an environment for spiritual, moral as well as social development of the child so that she/he feels safe, happy and secure in life. It further empowers the students to deal effectively with their everyday challenges by providing counselling services and life skill training on regular basis.

Child Well being

We at CMS believe that wellbeing is about children being confident, healthy and happy. Children desire to be loved, valued, respected, cared for and included. We feel that wellbeing also is an important element of overall student success. Students cannot achieve academically if they feel unsafe and unhappy. They cannot be expected to reach their full potential if they have mental health issues and if we do not provide the support they need. And they cannot be their best if they are not motivated to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle, both in and outside of school.

A child well being survey is being conducted in every CMS Campus in spring 2016. It has been specifically designed for students of classes 7th - 12th. The survey incorporates various aspects of a child's life and happiness. It will form the baseline survey. Next year in spring 2017 the survey will be repeated and the child well-being outcomes of 2017 will be compared with the outcomes for 2016, to measure the impact of our well-being promotion activities.

Our Services

Individual Counselling

We provide an open, supportive and confidential environment to the students to address the issues that are of concern to them. Through this unique process between a counsellor and a student we aim to help him/her to gain an understanding about his/her own behaviour and promote development of skills for dealing with difficulties associated with personal, academic and social life. This process works on the basis of trust and confidentiality.

Group Counselling

Students with similar experiences/issues are addressed together, where each group member contributes in some way, listening and talking to others. This group interaction provides an opportunity to build relationships and receive interpersonal feedback about each other’s experiences. This process helps them to gain specific skills and strategies to meet personal challenges and gain support and encouragement from others.

Parental Counselling

The school offers parental counselling to reduce the stress level and to increase the sense of confidence in parents. Parental counselling helps the parents in identifying and expressing feelings for their child when they interact with him/her. They learn new parenting skills and behavior management strategies.

Family Counselling

City Montessori School always gives great importance to the family. A child needs the support of the entire family to live a happy and healthy life. At times family counselling is given to strengthen the relationship between the family members and the child.

Training on Life Skills

It is our endeavor to focus on cultivating life skills. Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable us to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. They are a set of human skills acquired via teaching or through direct experience and are used to handle problems and questions commonly encountered in daily human life. They aid individuals to develop into active and productive members of their communities.
