Educational practice in a society is an endeavour directed at the wellbeing of young children. John White (2011) in his book Exploring Wellbeing in Schools, observes that as an educational aim, school education should equip every child to lead a life that is personally flourishing and help others to do so, too. The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005 states, ‘...seeking guidance from the constitutional vision of India… certain broad aims of education have been identified in this document. These include the independence of thought and action, sensitivity to others’ wellbeing and feelings, learning to respond to new situations in a flexible and creative manner, predisposition towards participation in democratic processes, and the ability to work towards and contribute to economic processes and social change’ (NCF Document, p.vii).
