Why, sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before
Lewis Carroll in "Alice in Wonderland"
Of all my wishes, the one closest to my heart
is giving a happy magical childhood to my children - Saanvi &
Karishnu. Kangaroo Kids at Banjarahills has been there on every
step of the journey, with encouragement, fun filled learning,
laughter and endless creativity. Not only did my shy toddlers
blossom into confident individuals, but I am deeply grateful to
Manichandrika Chalasani for mentoring me through the challenges
that came with parenting a preschooler.
Thank you Kangaroo Kids for creating all those priceless years.

At Kangaroo Kids, My daughter has learnt an amazing
array of things in a short span of time and this love of learning
has been nurtured constantly by her teachers. My husband and I
love the close attention paid to individual needs, strengths and
areas of challenge. Kangaroo kids fosters a proactive approach
to building life long learners by promoting encouragement rather
than criticism, Children here are lauded for their gifts, while
gently guiding them through rough areas until they succeed.

We always wanted our son Lagadapati Harman to
be in Kangaroo Kids, Banjara Hills, once he was set for schooling.
And later on, every day of his school remained a sweet memory
in his little mind and we are proud that we took that decision.
Dropping the children to their classes was an easy job, but the
toughest part was to take them back home as they never wanted
to leave their school. Each child received undivided attention
from all the staff, a personal welcome name calling from Mrs.
Chandrika (I always wondered how she remembered every kids name),
and regular feedback and support from the class teachers. I wished
the school had classes 1st standard onwards too so that I would
have never had a need to think about any other school for my kid.
It has been almost 8-months since my child has moved to a new
school but an honest confession is that not a single day goes
by where he doesn't remember his teachers, friends and time spent
at Kangaroo kids. I would strongly recommend every parent to look
at this school for a holistic experience for their child.
With warm regards / Janaki Lagadapati

"As a parent, I was quite happy with my
son, Hesham's pre-primary years spent at KK. The part I appreciated
the most was the "concept time" which enriched the students.
Moreover, I found the teachers very encouraging, understanding
and supportive. Also, the environment is pleasant. My son exhibited
confidence, positivity and had enjoyed his time there.

We are parents of a child who is shy and takes
time to open up. We could not have asked for a better school than
kangaroo kids. As our daughter was finding ways to adjust to the
new environment (think lots of crying!), the teachers would listen
to us with absolute intent for our inputs to make it easy for
her. This enabled her to mingle with the school eco-system whole
heartedly. And before we knew it she was happy and well-adjusted
in school. We were so reassured to see that all activities in
the school were carried out keeping a child's pace and interest
in mind. As our daughter is now ready to pass out of the school
we can see the profound influence that the school had on her.
Another great feature of KK is it emphasis on
reading. The school works very hard (through readers, lots of
sight reading time in class and other activities) to ensure that
kids are reading by the time the finish pre-school. This is in
our opinion the single most important and life changing skill
that children learn at kangaroo kids.
Above all, KK believes that kids should have
fun in school. We believe that Kangaroo Kids is special because
the teachers trust the parent's judgement and back it up with
their own assessment of the child. This two way communication
is an on-going process which ensures that a child has a wonderful
time at school. It shows every day when says, "I had so much
fun in school."

Vijayalakshmi Raghavan &
Kangaroo kids have been a parent's delight. I
have been fortunate to send both my children from play school
to this institution. One of them is doing really well at Glendale
academy in 3rd grade and one is currently enrolled in PPII. My
children's knowledge and their clarity in thought amaze me especially
because the teachers have been able to teach in a way where neither
the kids nor the parents feel a burden.
Even with the few pages of weekend homework,
they did not require much assistance at all. Whether it is the
knowledge of the solar systems or human body or the natural world,
my husband and I get stunned every time they talked about gravity
or the t-Rex or the heart as an organ that pumps blood! Every
kid is given a chance to play a sport, to dance, to participate
and to just be a kid in this competitive world.
Transition to a new school with clear understanding
of the concepts ensured that my daughter easily and enthusiastically
adjusted to a new school system.
I look forward to seeing Ameena graduate from
this fine school and look forward to sending my 1 year old there
in the future. My experiences with the teachers, administration
and the teaching method have been surpassed beyond expectations.

Early childhood is a very precious time - as
every parent will testify. It is the time when your infant starts
budding into a toddler - taking their first steps and slowly learning
about the world, outside of the protective environment of their
home. As you start looking for the first school to send them to,
you wonder and worry - are they ready for this - what will the
other children be like. You fear if the teacher will take the
time to understand your child - her fears, her moods, her interests.
You wish you could protect her forever and not need to put her
through the painful but necessary rituals of growing up.
Finding the right pre-school for me was the most
important first step in this direction. I wanted a place I would
feel absolutely safe to send my child to, a warm and child friendly
place and more importantly - peopled by individuals who share
a love for children and run it with the commitment and conviction
of giving each child the optimum environment to flourish.
I found all of this and more at Kangaroo Kids,
The moment you walk through the gate and with
every staff you meet, whether it is the Management or the Security
at the gate - every part of the school speaks of the single minded
mission of Chandrika and Farhana who lead the team - how can we
make this the best environment for the kids who will be with us?
I have two kids who have graduated out of Kangaroo
Kids - two kids with very different personalities and I can say
with complete certainty - this was the best possible start both
my kids could have possibly had!
Right from the management to the teaching and
support staff, everyone embodies the commitment to offer a warm
and nurturing environment that your child could possibly need
to learn and grow in. Every year, the team at Kangaroo Kids never
cease to amaze me - be it with the Sports Day or the performances
at the Annual Day - you think they cannot better the program and
each year they outdo themselves. Ask any kid who has finished
their pre-school years at Kangaroo Kids and they will tell you
it is the best school in the world and their teacher, the best
in the universe!
Of course, I must warn you, that Kangaroo Kids
spoils the parents as much as it spoils the kids. No other school
can match up to their standards - the bar is set way up high.
You will need to go through a reconciliation phase and to accept
the fact that this pre-school is a special place and not a standard
other schools will possibly be able to match upto. The greatest
gift you receive from Kangaroo Kids is that your child comes out
full of confidence and optimism to take on the world and you feel
reassured, that they have given your child a great foundation
to now go out and make their place in the world !
