About Eggheads

Who are We?

EggHeads was established as an education initiative to nurture inquisitive and applied learning skills in children through an experiment driven and personalised curriculum. We lay emphasis on building professional as well as life skills in children through a self-learning approach. We encourage students to create and innovate, accepting failure and success as a part of the learning curve. We always believe that when a child develops critical thinking and can apply the knowledge in day-to-day activities, we succeed in our endeavour.
