In an evolving nation like India, every school must have the opportunity to reach their full potential
All children are born intelligent and education should enable every child’s learning process
About LIFE Organization
Learning Integration for Education Pvt. Ltd. (LIFE) was founded in the year 2015. LIFE was started with the sole purpose of bringing a positive change in the present learning system for young children especially, but not limited to, the age group of 3-7 years. Our methodology involves introducing Real Life Concepts along with Social and Emotional development of every child in the early years of learning. We are now LIFE Member of Early Childhood Association.
We are India’s first organization to create a program which provides on-job teacher’s training and development process encompassing real time teacher’s classroom, delivery management and effective learning mechanism for students. We use our specially designed strategies and tools in the form of Thematic & Experiential learning process. Our program supports teachers with real time 500 hours of these tools and programs at each level from 3 years to 7 years.
LIFE has evolved in the last couple of years and has steadily grown from 30 kids, one classroom in Mumbai to 1,800 children, 30 classrooms in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Nanded.
This year we are introducing the concept of Augmented Reality (3D) to children, by publishing our first set of books featuring most of the lovable animals. These books have fun stories and poems in which the animals spring to life when used in combination with LIFE’s downloadable application.
Our program philosophy revolves around encouraging active learning that deploys both left and right brained faculties.
While designing our entire program, we have kept in mind every aspect of a child’s development, as you can see in the picture here. Apart from the obvious developmental aspects, we have also focused on developing oft neglected Emotional Quotient and Social Quotient in children.
The end result is beautiful! We will explain more on this later in this guide.

- All classes will be conducted in one or more of the 7 expressive mediums. For example, some classes will feature Music and Dance, while others will be focused on Speech and Writing.
- All classes will feature instructional content from one of the 7 Learning Content categories. This content will be aligned to seasons, festivals and other occasions as appropriate.
