The 2015/16 academic year will see Gujarati-based education provider Calorx opening its first institution, a pre-school, in Dubai. Swift expansion is planned thereafter, with a total of 16 further education institutes opening in the next three years.

Ms. Manjula Pooja Shroff, Chairperson of Calorx Group said, “Calorx group aims to increase the number of schools and institutions managed by it, from 40 to 100 across India and the Middle East region. The group has planned to open its first pre-school in Dubai in the coming academic year itself and will be followed by at least 16 institutions in the coming three years."

Founded over 20 years ago, across India Calorx currently manages the Delhi Public Schools, Calorx Olive Green International Schools and Calorx Public Schools.

The Calorx Teachers’ University was founded to develop capacity, while Calorx’s special education institutions such as Visamo Kids Foundation and Prerna – a school for dyslexics, focus on improving opportunities for kids with special educational needs.

Mrs Shroff added, “The schools will follow both international and CBSE curricula. We would be extending our same education philosophy even abroad. We will adopt a Multi-Sensory teaching so that students get educated by the way of experiential learning and innovative teaching methodologies."

She went on to say, "Indian schools are well received by the parents in UAE thus giving us a boost in our maiden international venture.

"It will act as a testing ground for us to test our mettle before we expand to other international markets.”
