“We are based out of Bangalore and are leaders in affordable private rural pre-school programs in India. We believe in activity-based learning pedagogy that brings an improved 21st century education model to replace the rote-based learning approaches currently dominant in rural India,” said Ritesh Mishra, Director – Centre Operations, Hippocampus Learning Centres Pvt Ltd.
“Our education philosophy is focused on building the ‘learning to learn’ skills in children so that they become self-learners, important for their success and development,”
Hippocampus Learning presently operates 104 pre-school centres in two districts of Karnataka employing 200 local women as teachers. 3000 students are enrolled in its centres and benefit from its low-cost programs annually.
“The kids were pretty excited to participate and came up with pretty interesting drawings. It has been a very exciting experience to conduct a contest at such scale. Enabling kids across rural Karnataka participate in Art Contest has been truly gratifying,”
