About Us

At Early Innings we make it our passion to nurture a sense of discovery, joy, and wonder in every child. We guide them on this road to discovery with our research-based standards and assessments along six developmental domains.

Who we are

We believe in the value of childhood- The early childhood years are the most defining for a child. These are indeed The Wonder Years and critical in terms of cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Bill Gates had very aptly put: First 5 years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out.

We are a group of individuals with a common vision to nurture growing independence along with positive self-esteem and self-image, and to instil a love of learning through a child’s earliest learning experience. We believe that formative years are most critical in the overall development of children. Children have tremendous potential if a firm foundation is laid in their early years.
