About Us

Back in 2004, Mr. Vittal and Ms. Preeti Bhandary were, as young parents, on the lookout for an outstanding preschool for their little daughter. While they did come across a few good play schools & nurseries in the neighborhood, none of them seemed to offer a holistic early education program that every child needs in order to discover a natural love for learning and to spark off overall personality development.

As a passionate kindergarten teacher with a penchant for innovation herself, Preeti, cheered on by her husband Vittal, decided to conceptualize and dream up a preschool herself.

 “Little Elly” was born, as a flagship brand of Learning Edge India Pvt Ltd, an entity synonymous with education in Bangalore.

Little Elly is one of the premier preschool chains in India, and a much-loved one, known for its developmentally enriching & fun learning spaces for toddlers and early learners getting ready for big school, with over 130+ centers all over India, with overseas footprints in Kathmandu (Nepal) & Seattle (USA).

Little Elly continues to grow every day, enriching the lives of pre-schoolers in various parts of the country and abroad, striving to foster in-depth skills and an everlasting passion for learning in children, nurturing them along the way through their growth journey as they gear up to take on the challenges of grade school. And, the school of life.
