A child’s growth is the most rapid when he/she is between 2 and 4 years of age. The programme aims to provide opportunities to children to exhibit their curiosity, creativity, self-direction and persistence in learning situations. Children get many opportunities to interact with their peers. The school has 36 branches, including three outstation branches.

• Has won many prestigious awards like Cannes Gold for Love Blossoms Here brochure, India Education Awards 2012

Target Group: Children between the age of 2-4 years and their parents.

Challenges: Initially it was difficult to manage all the expectations of the parents, as for them child’s learning gets generally associated with the reading-writing skills that the child can pick up. There is shortage of fully trained teachers. At times it is difficult to convince parents about the importance of pre-school education. Development of a child friendly and safe environment is also not an easy task. However, with the chairperson, Sudha Gupta’s conviction, the school sailed through these challenges and has been awarded with many prestigious awards.
