Origin & History
It is the aim of every parent to find the right school for their child, one that takes care of his learning, equips him with life skills as well as helps in his overall development. Several years ago, it was this same desire that propelled Mr. Vittal & Mrs. Preeti Bhandary to look around their neighbourhood for an “outstanding pre-school” to enroll their child in. They came across many good schools, each offering something unique to the child. Yet, what was missing was one good school that gave their child EVERYTHING that the little one needed for her all round development.
As with any parent, they too wanted nothing but the best for their child. Their aspiration to fulfil that dream led them to initiate one of the most respected educational companies in India, a pioneer in early childhood education and care – the Little Elly chain of pre-schools. Every year, about 7000 plus happy preschoolers pass out of Little Elly, based on the confidence, credence and conviction of the Little Elly philosophy. Little Elly continues to grow every day, enriching the lives of preschoolers in various parts of the country. It is an institution that strives to foster strong skills and an everlasting passion for learning as the child grows and is ready to take on the challenges of grade school.
