"It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be" - J.K.Rowling
A lot of us may have accepted the fact that change is the only constant, however, today’s world experiences unprecedented levels of change. This frequency and unpredictability of change demands extraordinary skills and more importantly a high Emotional Quotient (EQ).
Our programs for young learners are designed keeping in mind that an early intervention towards building the all-important life skills can give a head start to our future generation. These programs are designed to equip them with a pool of skills and values which they can dig into whenever required.
