Little Laureates is the preschool brand of Nalanda Learning Systems Pvt. Ltd. (NLS). It was our love for the little ones that led us to establish Little Laureates in 2012. Before starting out with our first school in Rishra, West Bengal,we carried out an extensive research on the subject. We found that conventional teaching techniques were still the order of the day here, while the world around was changing drastically. We decided to change the game and brought modernity to preschool education.

We framed our curriculum based around our motto of 'Play. Learn. Grow.' We believe that little minds learn better in a playful atmosphere and in the process grow up. Thus our curriculum has the right mix of international methods like Montessori and Kindergarten with lots of play and fun time. But what makes it truly modern is the addition of digital smart classes into it. Each of our schools has special digital classes where the children interact with digital study materials and learn in a more engaging manner. This helps them get accustomed to the digital world at such an early age that they grow up digitally smart.

Our responsibility doesn't end there, we make sure that both your kid and you are ready for the big day of admission into a big school at the next level. We also organise special sessions and seminars for the parents, where they are educated on good parenting skills. In fact, you will find in us an extended family and your child will love Little Laureates as home. This love is what has made us grow leaps and bounds in the last five year from 1 to 100 schools across eastern India.

Our Mission

To nurture young minds by providing ample opportunities to play learn and grow in a dynamic, challenging and culturally sound environment. We impart holistic education and firmly believe that each child is unique and learns differently.

Our Vision

To build an education model which will make quality education accessible to all from the grass root level to the top most sections of the society.

We try to enrich the society with our circle of development
