Founder Speaks-

"Children tend to learn early skills from their peers and elders through a natural process of observation, mimicry, and play. But in the last 2 years, children in the age group of 0 - 6 years have not had access to this kind of social interaction. This has resulted in a surge of issues like speech delays, fine motor, and gross motor skill delays. With increased awareness and mandatory screening, the number of children reported having neurodevelopmental conditions is also increasing. It is our view that the next few years are going to be very crucial in turning this trend around. With the right kind of support, we believe that every child can live happy, independent, and meaningful lives."
