Preschool education is experiencing an increase in the number of children that are being enrolled due to a shift in pedagogy and parents becoming more conscious about early child development. The market has expanded significantly as demand for high-quality early education continues to rise, with many new preschools offering diverse curricula and specialization programs. Significant developments include holistic learning, incorporation of technology into instruction, and increased parent participation levels. Furthermore, growing urbanization and dual-earning families are leading to rising demand for accessible childcare facilities that are of high standard, hence driving market growth. In this sector, parents with preschool children often experience troubles such as getting the proper care or cost control or balancing work and family life. Little Planet Preschool, established in 2016 in West Delhi’s Paschim Vihar, is a beacon of early childhood education excellence. With innovative programs, and countless accolades, the school provides a haven for young children’s development.

The inception of Little Planet Preschool was driven by the founder’s quest to bridge the gap between parental expectations and preschool offerings. Frustrated by the lack of comprehensive curricula in many NCR preschools, it envisioned a holistic approach to early childhood education. Unlike other preschools, it emphasizes personalized attention, ensuring each child’s unique needs are met. The school strives to lay a strong foundation for lifelong learning and success by prioritizing holistic development and individualized support. At Little Planet Preschool, innovative teaching methodologies drive the educational experience, with a particular focus on the Shera Concept Lab. This pioneering initiative seamlessly integrates technology-driven learning to enrich students’ academic journey. Teachers leverage this integration to deliver academically rigorous yet enjoyable lessons. Little Planet Preschool has garnered numerous accolades, including ‘Best Preschool in the Delhi NCR Region’, and ranking 19th Best Preschool in India by Education Today. Education World recognized it as the 6th most preferred Preschool brand in India. The Directress and Principal, Ruchika Talwar, was honored as one of the Top 10 Women Leaders in Play and Pre-School by Women Entrepreneur India.

Little Planet Preschool offers a variety of programs to meet the many developmental needs of children of various age groups. There is a Play Group program for children between one year and eighteen months to
2.5 years old to enhance growth through interactive play and exploration in a caring environment. The Pre Nursery program helps children aged 2.5 years prepare for school by focusing on school readiness and other goals related to their total development. In this sense, during the Nursery program, three-year-olds learn basic skills such as letter identification, alphabet and numeral writing, and starting Hindi language acquisition. The Kindergarten program emphasizes independence in reading and writing while promoting creative thinking and critical reasoning among four-year-old learners. Moreover, daycare services offer safe after-school environments for children between the ages of two to ten years, with various stimulating activities.
