Starting with an integrated group of 30 children under a tree, the school now has about 450 children in Delhi and 275 in its branch at Gwalior. 

School has Special Sections for developmentally delayed children, hearing & visually impaired as well as those with multiple disability. Equal opportunities are given for other activities like sports, cultural programmes, vocational training etc. The school also has language, computer and science labs.

With the object of having inclusivity and providing comprehensive services, under the guidance of professionals at the Child Guidance Clinic and special educators, children are provided opportunities of social, recreational and vocational integration along with academic remediation as per need.
