Lina Ashar's dream to provide children a stress free childhood based on the idea that learning can be fun turned into reality, the first Kangaroo Kids Preschool at Mumbai in 1993. She believes that all children should be taught not only to make a living, but to live a joyous fun filled lives and has evolved a system of education that uses the basis of neurosciences and energy sciences which develops the brain, heart, spirit and soul of students, because it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. The care and experiences provided to young children during early years influences their view of the outside world and the way they relate to others and their ability to succeed as well. At Kangaroo Kids Preschool Velachery this became a reality in the year 2011, when Mr.V.T.Kannan nurtured this preschool which has now grown into a centre with happy kids and their parents. On whose demand of a high school paved the path to another centre – Billabong High International School, Palavakkam, ECR

As the franchisee of Kangaroo Kids Preschool Velachery and Billabong High International School, Palavakkam, Chennai, Ms.Chitra Kannan is personally involved in every aspect of the business. Entrepreneurship has been a goal of hers for a long time, and the recent time has been very rewarding because it feeds both the dreamer and doer parts of her personality.

Ms.Chitra Kannan has a strong aptitude for developing the direction and strategy of the KKEL brand and she never turns down the opportunity to participate in its creative aspects. She is involved in Marketing, Branding, Counseling, Finance and more and she is an integral part of the business.

With an eye for detail and the inspiration to give best to our students nothing has stopped her in turning Lina Ashar’s Dream into reality of sparking human greatness in every single child by discovering and then nurturing each child’s unique gift.



“Leaders never say 'I'. They don't think 'I'. They think 'we'; they think 'team'. The 'team' functions with responsibility and without disrespect to anyone, and each person gets the recognition and satisfaction of a job well done.'”
