Hyderabad: LLC @KLAY (Kids Learning And You)--provider of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) and largest chain of preschools in India--has announced the launch of its 150th centre in India. Located at Mindspace, Madhapur in Hyderabad, this centre will hold the capacity to accommodate over 450 children and will have a special needs clinic. This is KLAY's 15th centre in Hyderabad and with this launch it will be increasing the total capacity to extend quality education and childcare to 2000 children in Hyderabad.
Mindspace, Madhapur in Hyderabad is the second LLC @Klay centre in India. The first centre opened in Gurugram in early 2018. LLC @Klay plans to launch 8 such centres in the next two years to enhance the capacity to cater children with special needs across the country and also intends to operate via a hub and spoke model in larger cities.
LLC @Klay is a strategic partnership between KLAY and London Learning Centre that is aligned with a common value system and vision of providing quality education and care to EVERY child. Special Education Needs at an early childhood level is grossly underserved in India. This partnership focuses to address this gap.
Commenting on the milestone, Priya Krishnan, Founder & CEO - KLAY Schools said, "We have reached a very important milestone at KLAY. With every incremental capacity to nurture children we create an equal opportunity for mothers to pursue their passion by enabling them to rebuild their careers, thereby creating happy communities. We are particularly excited about enhancing our capacity for children with Special Education Needs. We hope to help children who face personal and societal difficulties in fitting in and developing in a way best suited to their individual needs. Our multidisciplinary team is well-equipped to provide professional and consistent support with in-depth assessment and therapy intervention."
Pooja Talwar, a passionate believer in helping children achieve their full potential regardless of their learning profile, started LLC in 2016 to help create awareness and raise the bar of holistic learning for special education needs in India. Talking about this launch with KLAY, Pooja said, "The Indian Education System, although far more evolved today, still needs better programs, not only for better inclusion of children with mild, moderate or significant needs but also for a more evidence-driven therapy approach that helps children develop into well rounded and independent individuals. At LLC we strongly believe in the famous quote by Mustard – "INTERVENE EARLY, INTERVENE EFFECTIVELY, AND INTERVENE OFTEN".
