Shree Kant Bhushan (SKB) Little Folks preschool was founded 40 years ago in the city of Kanpur, India by Radhika Bhushan who believes that children are natural-born learners who learn best through play.
With an aim to impart the highest quality of education to young minds, the school caters to children aged 2-and-a-half to 6. Our children learn at their own pace, while the teacher acts as a gentle facilitator to hone their skills and creativity.
At SKB, children are given free rein in the classroom to explore, question, and innovate while teachers foster their curiosity by providing an environment filled with possibilities. According to Montessori principles, the first 10 years of a child’s life are called the “Foundational Decade of Learning”. Foundational learnings from this period, are set in stone for a lifetime.
Our school endeavors to realize Dr. Montessori’s ultimate aim: Support the natural development of the human being from birth to maturity, enabling children to become the transforming elements of society leading to a harmonious and peaceful world.
We Value Children and Their Needs
"I am free as a bird to fly as I please
Free to laugh, tickle and giggle, free to tease.
I swirl as gently as the cool light summer breeze
My touch is as soft as the newborn lamb's fleece.
I am the page of history, that has yet no crease..
Oh to never snap or snatch or seize
To never have to fight for anything other than peace.
To never be caught in the clutches of misery, fighting for relief
To never let this joy in living.
This happiness decrease."
Radhika Bhushan, a formidable entity within Kanpur’s education space has based her life and work on the core belief that brilliance is achieved from a holistic and well-rounded education. She has lived this philosophy in her own life, much before she founded SKB Little Folks preschool. She graduated from Lady Irwin College in Child Development and continued to receive a degree in law from Kanpur University. Her dedication and commitment to education continued to grow as she mentored her three younger sisters after her father’s passing away at an early age.
