With a yawning gap felt by trainee teachers and educators between the content offered in teacher training courses and the demands of a real - life classroom, KKEL embarked on a unique journey in 2004 - to impart teacher training that would be on an even keel with the standards followed at international levels, keeping in mind our path-breaking, learner – centric approach.
KITDR (Kangaroo Kids Institute for Teacher Development and Research) was instituted to:
- Provide quality programmes that would harness the potential of learners and prepare them to face the challenges of a dynamic educational environment.
- Develop confident teachers who would prepare children to handle dynamic situations in different contexts.
- Help the teachers build a stimulating, satisfying and successful career in early years education.
- Develop not just teachers, but leaders in education.
The entry Qualification is a Masters in Human Development / Child Development with a minimum 5 years of experience in preschool setups, and there is 1 trainer for every 15 students in our KITDR centres. Today, we have 7 centres across 4 cities in India.
