Hello Kids


Every locality in Bengaluru now has multiple preschools, regarded as a boon by working parents. But how do we ensure that the preschools we are sending our children to are catering to the right target points, helping our toddlers grow into capable citizens of our country. This is where preschools such as Hello Kids come in providing kindergarteners with a nurturing environment to learn, grow, and play. Encouraging independence and effective communication, Hello Kids has revolutionized early education, making it accessible across urban and rural areas. The institution adopts an award-winning curriculum, integrating global best practices to emphasize learning through play.

Hello Kids in a Nutshell

Founded in 2009, Hello Kids has expanded rapidly, with over 920 branches across India and Bangladesh. A dream come true project for its Founder & Director – Dr. Pritam Kumar Agrawal, driven by a vision of possibility, embarked on his journey in education after gaining insights from his stint with an electricity generating firm in the UK. With a plan rooted in knowledge and possibility, he laid the foundation for Hello Kids Education India Private Limited.

With a teacher-student ratio of 1:10 in urban areas and 1:15 in rural areas, Hello Kids ensures personalized attention and quality education for every child. Also, Hello Kids is not just a preschool; it’s a sanctuary where children transition from dependence to independence, from shaky coordination to refined skills, and from self-absorption to growing social awareness. Catering to children aged 1 1/2 to 5 1/2 years, Hello Kids amalgamates the best practices from Montessori, Play way, and Gurukul methodologies, nurturing all-round development in children.
