Backgroup of the Group
Zee Learn Ltd owes its beginnings to a belief in the Essel Group and that of our Chairman Mr. Subhash Chandra that India’s future can be brighter only if quality education is imparted to its future generation to help prepare them to take on every challenge that tomorrow might throw at them. Started in 1994 with this belief, Zee Learn Ltd is a leading educational organisation from the group with strong brands that have delivered success, respect and immense satisfaction to all our parents, students & franchisees. It is a public listed company and addresses educational and learning requirements right from the age of 1.5 years till a child turns into a confident adult ready to take on the world of tomorrow.
Genesis of the company
The purpose of Zee Learn is to help deliver best in class education and learning to our children so that they in turn can help India achieve its true potential from its demographic dividend. However, we saw a big gap between what education needs to do to prepare leaders and visionaries of tomorrow and what is being delivered. We at Zee Learn aim to bridge this gap by improving the human capital by helping individuals realise their unique potential through quality education and development.
It is this excellence and belief that has helped us scale new heights and spread quality education across 550 cities and towns. In some of our markets we have had to go out and educate people about the importance of preschool and that of Early Childhood in the shaping of a child’s future. Our PreSchool brand, Kidzee is today Asia’s largest Pre- School network with over 1350 Centres. Over 400,000 children have been enriched with an experience called Kidzee. Global learning and research helps us stay ahead of the curve and our roots in India help us contextualize it for the Indian audience thereby creating a unique learning experience through our Trademarked Pedagogy – iLLUME.
We are also one of the leaders in the K-12 Education segment with over 80 operational schools across India by the name of Mount Litera Zee School.
ZICA & ZIMA offer vocational courses for youth. We have also recently launched Mount Litera School International (IB School) in Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai as part of our commitment to offer the finest quality education across different segments and age groups.
