Fascinated by the realm of psychology, entrepreneur Chandni Mehta has turned her passion into a profession

On the emerald-hued campus of the University of Nottingham in England while studying psychology, Chandni Mehta discovered her love for working with people and the need to do something constructive and creative with her time. After acquiring her degree, she returned to Mumbai to work at prestigious schools in the city as a child counsellor and realised the need for activity-programme-based day-and-night care centres in the city. And the seeds for Jumping Genius were sown.

Started on a shoe string budget, Chandni’s unique night care facility helps couples to take time off to attend a social event or simply to unwind while the children are looked after – “an impossible luxury in the metros if you have a little child to take care of.” With trained educators, security using CCTV and BBM facilities to update parents on their child’s progress, it is natural that the “the parents are very excited.”
