Children's Academy, Thakur complex – An Overview
Today, the Children's Academy Group of Schools comprises of three huge educational institutions in the suburbs. The first school was established at Bachani Nagar, Malad East. This was followed by a branch at Ashok Nagar, Kandivali East, and then a third institution at Thakur complex, Kandivali East.
This was the last branch envisioned and planned by the founder of the Children's Academy Group of Schools, Mr. V. V. Bhat. An educationist to the core, Mr. Bhat wanted his unique educational pattern to reach out to the widest populace, and it was towards this end that he envisaged this school in the then upcoming Asha Nagar area. However, Mr. Bhat passed away in August 2001. Though he could see the plans of his third school passed through the authorities, he could not see the great heights to which the school has reached today.
The Thakur complex arm of the Children's Academy Group of Schools is the youngest of the three schools, but it is by no means behind its luminous siblings in any manner.
