MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Dear Parents,

When we first returned to India with young children, after 21 years in the UK (in the 90’s), we were appalled by the so-called Preschool industry at the time…dismal ‘Mom and Pop’ shops run from a Garage or a basement…all designed to keep the children “safe”, whilst Mother and Father went out to work, and that’s it…

The crucial importance of the preschool years (0-6yrs) was virtually unknown in India, certainly in Bangalore. We SET OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE…after several years research into the “Best Practices’ adopted in the UK, US and Italy, we literally started the first Preschool in Bangalore with international standards (in 2003), for Discerning Parents, who understand that a good Preschool is the vital ingredient in building the Child’s Foundation and giving the child a head-start in Life.

WHAT MAKES KARA DIFFERENT ?

I am an alumnus of IIT and my Co-Founder is from IIM. Together we have over 50 years corporate experience. I have been Chairman of two companies Listed on the BSE and a subsidiary of a Company Listed on the London Stock Exchange, apart from being a Consultant to numerous national and international companies. As you can imagine, with this background, not only do we treat our Staff with fairness and dignity, but we have fully corporatized the company, that is all staff are eligible for corporate benefits such as Provident Fund, Retirement Gratuity, ESI, Annual Bonus, maternity leave, interest-free loans for purposes of education, Lease-deposits, marriage etc

WE ARE PERHAPS THE ONLY PRESCHOOL IN BANGALORE WHO OFFER THESE PERKS...this makes for Happy Carers who make for Happy children !

We have been in the field for over 14 years…Kara4Kids is now an established Brand, with over a thousand “Graduates”, studying in some of the best Main Schools in India and abroad. Apart from reading the rest of the Website, it is vital you to visit one of our Centres, particularly during School hours (an appointment is not necessary), to get a “feel” for Kara and the happy environment in which we function. Then only will you be able to make an informed decision in what is perhaps the biggest decision of your Life…

We look forward to your visit.
Warm regards,

KHUSHROO RUSTUMJI

To be the best premium pre-school in Bangalore or anywhere else for that matter, with the same international standards found in such countries as the UK, US or Italy, to provide “Value for Money” to aspirational/discerning Parents, struggling to give their children, the best child-care and pre-school education which they never had. In short to give their child a Flying Start in the Rat Race called Life and to make them world-beaters.

Our Teachers are chosen with the utmost care and discernment. Apart from being fully qualified, invariably they are married with their own kids and come from very stable family back-grounds with highly supportive Husbands and mother-in-law ! Many of them are highly talented with leadership qualities and have yet chosen to leave the “Commercial” world (where the rewards are greater) because they love to be around children. Parents’ often remark about their infinite patience. Children quickly respond to the love and affection they are shown and bond with their Teachers and the Carers and ask to see them even on weekends ! Come and meet your child’s Teacher before you make a decision

To provide a Home away from Home for your children. In olden days, Mama and Grandma were at home, to provide the child a warm, safe environment. Papa came Home by 6 pm at the latest, full of energy and Mama and Papa spent lots of time with the children. Sadly we have moved on…Today, both Mama and Papa are often working till late and Grandpa and Grandma visit once a year, HOW DO YOU BRING BACK THOSE HALCYON DAYS…by bringing your child to Kara4Kids.

We are a premium international-quality preschool...not the cheapest...but certainly not the most expensive. We pride ourselves on providing 'Value for Money'. All our Centres are company-controlled, so as to maintain the same high standards everywhere. Unlike Franchisees and Chains, we provide individual attention, that is our child-adult ratio is arguably the best in the country. Compare also the quality of our Premises, the quality of our Teachers, our Health, Safety and Nutrition Standards. Discerning Parents, understand the importance of a good preschool and the vital role it plays in giving their child a head-start in Life. As the saying goes : If you think Education is expensive...try Ignorance !

We urge you to visit our Schools with your child and you will be surprised how much "At Home" your child feels and runs around happily on our premises. Many Parents tell us, this factor alone made them chose Kara4Kids. Compare our premises...large, airy, colorful Rooms painted in warm colors, with an appropriate number of children as per international space requirements. Indeed our infrastructure costs are the largest factor in the equation, but we feel it is essential to provide such environmentally-friendly spaces for our children to grow.

We only close on Corporate Holidays so that we can take care of your child whenever you are working…we will give you PEACE OF MIND. You need not feel guilty about going to work. Your child will be kept mentally and physically stimulated in the most loving and caring environment, which Kara provides…and we will introduce you to innumerable Parents who will confirm this reality.

You do not have to take an appointment to visit your child as some schools insist…it is YOUR HOME AND YOUR CHILD’S EXTENDED HOME…so anytime you are feeling anxious…come and see your child and have a cup of coffee with us.. we will always make time to see you !

Read More

We teach the child, not the classroom…ALL CHILDREN LEARN DIFFERENTLY AND AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS. Individual attention is therefore vital to get the best out of each child. This is possible due to the very low child-adult ratios adopted by Kara4Kids, unlike many schools where a large number of children are pushed into a small classroom. Our child-adult ratio is arguably the highest in the country.

As per international standards…Food is prepared daily on the premises with fresh ingredients, no preservatives, as per the guidance of a Nutritionist. All corners are padded and mats provided wherever there is a necessity, from the safety point of view. Premises/Toys/Equipment cleaned regularly with herbal cleaners. Our Teachers and Carers are all trained in First Aid. We check all children as they come in, for the slightest sign of a cold or a cough or fever, so as not to affect the others.

Read More

That is our Staff, including our Teachers are eligible for all Corporate benefits like Retirement Gratuity, Provident Fund and Medical Insurance apart from interest-free loans to cover education, emergencies, marriages, Lease deposits etc. We are unaware of any other Preschool which provides these perks. As a consequence, our attrition rate is less than 5% ; your child is therefore taken care-off by the same Carers on a daily basis and consequently feels totally secure in our environment. It is a truism but Happy Carers make for Happy Children !

We are specialists in building the child’s foundation, for it is said : If the Foundation is strong, there is no limit to which the Building can rise ! In cooperation with the Parents, we teach manners, humanistic values, the concepts of decency, respect for elders and others not as fortunate as themselves, respect for the differently abled…attributes which will last a lifetime.

International and multi-cultural outlook

We have a large number of NRI Parents. When they were abroad, contemplating returning to India, one of the first things they did was to look for a preschool which is similar to the one to which they are accustomed, so that as and when and if they return overseas, the children’s education will not be affected and the transition will be seamless.

We believe in the development of the mind, the soul and the body. Thus we retain external Sports Specialists to encourage our children in sports like Table-tennis, soccer, basketball, rappelling, rope climbing, parachuting etc… Skilled music teachers for those with an artistic inclination and even Chess for our older children.
