Preschool is a learning establishment that offers early childhood education to children who are between 2-4 years of age. Pre-schools are an essential part of the education system since in the first four years of age, children acquire the basic cognitive, physical, social and emotional capabilities that prepare them for later success in school and life. Pre-schools can operate both publicly and privately and they have been segmented into full day-care and after-school care categories.
Note: Information in the above chart consists of dummy data and is only shown here for representation purpose. Kindly contact us for the actual market size and trends.
The growth of the Indian pre-school/child care market is driven primarily by factors such as rising parent awareness for early childhood education and care, coupled with rising number of nuclear families and working women in the country. As both parents in the family are bound to be occupied with their professions, pre-schools offer a reliable system to ensure that the child’s growth is not hindered due to the absence of parents. Moreover, factors like increasing disposable income of parents and rapid urbanization has led to a rise in brand consciousness and penetration of international preschools in the country. This has resulted in the development of innovative and advanced infrastructures as well as quality education programs for preschools across the country. Additionally, with expansion in tier 2 and tier 3 cities and escalation of franchise numbers in untapped areas, the number of preschool/child care centres have significantly increased. The government of India has also launched the National Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) policy, promoting pre-schooling for children in low-income households of the country.
