Kai started life in 1984 as ‘Vidyaniketan Montessori’ in a charming, colonial bungalow in Cantonment Bangalore, where it remained for 20 happy years. In 2010, the little preschool blossomed into a Montessori + K12 international school – Legacy, and moved to a larger campus in North Bangalore. Five years later, we celebrated our 30th anniversary by responding to parent appeals for our Montessori in Whitefield. Legacy Early Years (better known as LEY), settled into in a brightly-lit, homely villa, a few yards down the road from where we are currently located. Over five years, LEY nurtured a gentle preschool environment that engaged curious children, attracted caring teaching professionals, and delighted a discerning parent community. In 2017, LEY was ranked the #1 Montessori in India for ‘Individual Attention to students’ by Education Today and received an award from Education World for ‘Innovation in Curriculum’.
Like children, schools too must learn and grow. To commemorate the mature milestone of our 35th year in education in 2019-20, we give children, parents, educators and the community that surrounds us – Kai Early Years and KaiCircle – a 2-acre, flagship preschool and community centre, with unprecedented opportunities for early years communities to thrive.
