We were founded as Headstart Nursery and Primary School on 20th of January, 1995 by Mrs. Sudha Mahesh and Mr. C.N.U Maheswaran. (Due to a court injunction, we have now rebranded as HLC International). VECT Trust was established on 1st April 1997. She has been a Changemaker Educator since 1975. Headstart Nursery and Primary school was closed in 2009 and rebranded as HLC International in subsequent years under the leadership of Mr. Naveen Mahesh, and Mrs. Raaji Naveen.
We don't believe in preparing children. Others have failed miserably attempting it. What children and young learners require is being enabled, not prepared, to pursue their interests and passions. This is what we believe in and do really well.
