Program Overview

Downingtown Balvihar (DBV) conducts classes every Sunday between 2:30PM and 4:30PM for children 3y old to middle-schoolers covering topics such as Culture and Languages. Value based education for our children forms the basis of our mission  Classes start in mid-September and engagement spans over 30+ sessions.


Taught to students of all ages, Culture covers topics such as traditions, history, geography, civics, and current affairs of India.  Over the years, students learn about different festivals, art, food / clothing, religions, different eras of Indian history, geographic elements, and governing institutions. Value based education is the basis of our culture education


We offer formal training in Hindi language to students on a voluntary basis starting Grade 1, while introducing basic vocabulary in preceding years in culture classes.  All students are divided into three groups based on the level of instruction (degree of difficulty) and determined by a pre-assessment at the beginning of each year.  Language training aims to develop verbal, reading, and writing skills, depending on the level of instruction.

We introduced Gujarati languages classes in 2013-2014 school year and we will be introducing Tamil languages classes in 2014-2015 school year.
