I truly see a very successful growth in my two kids Sheynil and Tushyil.. from the day one to date , both my kids have improved their performance skills.. the difference that I see in this class is our kids gets more exposure where, when they grow up how to handle the corporate world on their own and they are very confident about that... I think it’s simply because the experience that she got from the places that she worked as a corporate trainer.. so all credit goes to you Niranjalli for your amazing effort... All the best for everything !!!

This is an excellent place where my children love both the lessons and experience. The methods used here are innovative, transformative and targeted in making a positive change in the child through interesting activities. Niranjalli being a corporate trainer and a coach is delivering a balanced content using her years of experience in the top corporates in the country to mould children as future talent.

Chinthaka Dharmarathne

Not like our days, every kid will have a degree today and tomorrow they have better access to education however they don’t have opportunities to develop skills which is increasing in demand everywhere and in any profession, means skill and talents will matter for their success in future. LEADIN is for skills development, I am so fortunate to see my kids develop their skills day by day. Thanks to LEADIN I am confident that they are well equipped to face future challenges.
