Kyt is an online-first global academy focussing on extracurricular learning for children.
The Kyt team believes that supporting a child’s inclination to learn new things aren’t ‘additional’ or extra – they are essential to all-round development. Nurturing interests outside the world of academia equips children with essential life skills. In addition, access to reputable institutions and respected teachers paves the way for a life-long love for learning.
Catering to both private and small group classes, with online sessions offered live, Kyt leverages technology to offer courses with a structured curriculum, high quality instructors and interactive product features, to kids around the world. They promise a strong alternative to the extracurricular activities of traditional offline schools and provide families with an option to access talented coaches and high quality classes from the comfort and safety of home.
Kyt offers two learning approaches for children: Kyt Academy and Kyt Workshops. Kyt Academy courses usually span a period of up to 12 weeks and are ideal for children who are passionate about specific areas and want to develop their skills. Subjects include voice lessons, dance, yoga, language and reading. Kyt Workshops are ideal for children who are exploring different interests and want to try multiple classes. These include cooking, magic classes, animation for pre-teens, rhythm and rap, as well as poetry.
Kyt has partnered with global educators who are trained in delivering classes online, so students benefit from real-time interaction allowing for immediate feedback and personalised attention.
With head offices in India and Singapore, Kyt was founded in June 2020 by husband and wife duo Bhavik Rathod and Tripti Ahuja. Bhavik was a founding leader for Uber India and the Head of Uber Eats in India and South Asia. Tripti has spent 10 years designing customer experiences for top companies around the world, and an additional five years being part of founding teams at early-stage startups in India.
