Bholu 6 is located on a corner site and has been orientated to address the streets on two elevations. An entry courtyard and a low level fence create a sense of arrival and a buffer to the busy street. The pre-school captures the fine balance between a school as a public facility and the importance of a safe, peaceful place to learn.
The overall planning of Bholu 6 anganwadi incorporates a generous classroom with the external courtyard housing washing and toilet facilities.
