After the formation of independent India, people in Bikaner felt the need for quality education for their children. The need for Montessori and quality primary education using modern teaching methods was felt. The only primary education center in Bikaner, Ganga Bal Vidyalaya, was essentially accessible only for the children of the wealthy elite.
On the 15th of August, 1949, a new chapter in the history of education in Rajasthan was started. In association with Bharatiya Vidya Mandir, Rajasthan Bal Bharati was established for providing Montessori and primary education to the children of Bikaner. It was the introduction of the Montessori system in Rajasthan. Headed by its President, the revered Seth Girdhardas Mundhra, and under the able guidance of Shri Sambhudayal Saxena, during the Chief Ministerial tenure of Shri Madan Gopal Dammani, Rajasthan Bal Bharati saw unprecedented progress and became a trusted avenue for providing a strong educational base and helping to shape the futures of the children of independent India.
