Key growth drivers of the market Improved awareness of parents on early childhood care and education has increased the demand for preschools and childcare centers in India. Working parents are bound to be occupied with their professions, thus they prefer to enrol their children in preschools or child care centers for holistic development. Preschools offer a reliable arrangement to ensure a childs physical and mental growth through various activities. Moreover, increased competition in almost every curricular field has compelled most parents to secure the best early learning and development opportunities for their children. Rapid urbanization and increased disposable income have instilled brand consciousness among parents. This has led to the penetration of the international preschool culture in India. Key deterrents to the growth of the market The lack of professional staff and training facilities is a major challenge faced by preschools and child care centers. Furthermore, inadequate practical and interactive set of activities and curriculum leads to insufficient learning opportunities for students. Companies covered Tree House Education & Accessories Ltd.
