Letter from the Founder

“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.'”

Ms. Lina Ashar




We at Kangaroo Kids International Preschool welcome all parents to our premium preschool, play school and nursery school in Sambalpur.  Admissions for the current year are now open.

Kangaroo Kids was founded by Ms. Lina Ashar who established her first  playschool in Bandra, Mumbai, over 25 years ago. Today, we have our presence in 43 cities in 4 countries including India, Maldives, Muscat and Dubai. Over the years, we have set up more than 110 preschools, play schools, nursery & Montessori schools, primary, middle and high schools, and are regarded among the best educational institutions in the country.

Our work in the field of education has been appreciated, applauded and awarded several times over the years, and helped us keep our commitment to laying the foundation of lifelong learning in all young minds.

The curriculum taught to all our preschool students is exclusive to our organisation and is ranked at par with international schools. Based on neuroscience studies and research, it has been designed and developed by our founder and her team of educators. The learner-centric approach uses innovative and creative processes rather than traditional rote learning methods.

All our teachers are trained in this unique learning system so that every child of our preschool has the Kangaroo Kids edge.  They engage the children in music, art, dance, outdoor activities and fun exercises, through which the cognitive, spatial and motor skills of children are developed.

Each child is special with unique gifts and talents, and must be given the time, space and encouragement to learn at their own pace. We have created an invigorating environment for this in our bright, airy and colorful classrooms, where children can play with curated toys or read books that are apt for their age.

The security and safety of all children is of primary important to us. To this regard, we have made a provision for CCTV surveillance in all our preschool classrooms, and assigned vigilant security staff to watch over them at all times. The teaching and non-teaching staff are adept at handling minor situations which require basic first-aid.

We believe in learning spaces that are bias-free, and accept all children equally, including those with learning difficulties.  This helps us to inculcate the values of friendship, kindness, compassion and tolerance within our classrooms. Together we will build a world of mindful adults who are leaders in their own right.

We would be happy to have someone from our team show you our classroom and facilities, should you choose to do so. Please call and let us know, so that we can tell you what day & time would be ideal.
