Niyati Kanakia

Niyati’s distinct skills and efficiency are a result of the dedicated efforts she had put in while pursuing a Bachelors degree in Business Management, alongside an LLB from KC Law College in Mumbai. Her sharp business acumen and abilities to identify the best standards in the field of education have been the driving force which led her to create pathways of good education for the next generation. Being a curious and interested learner, she came forward with her group to provide exceptional education to the young learners.


Being closely associated with the field, Niyati had observed that there is a room for improvement in the way educational instruction is delivered to children; that is why she laid the foundation for Olive Trails. It is a preschool that offers exclusive play-based learning to toddlers and preschoolers. This method not only enables learning through fun and age-appropriate ways, but also empowers the kids to understand the concepts easily. Over the years, she has analysed meticulously to devise teaching methodologies for holistic development of the younger lot through various entertaining ways of learning. The schools aim at establishing an environment which is conducive to critical thinking, openmindedness, and fostering imagination for a better growth. Under Niyati’s aegis, RBK Institutes cater to over 10,000 students whereas Olive Trails preschool has around 1200 to 1600 toddlers and preschoolers.


Niyati has been focusing on making the group expand its outreach to all the nooks and corners of India and aims to emphasize the relevance of education and thereby, bring a refined and redefined ecosystem of learning for the masses. Followed by the grand success of RBK institutions in prominent suburbs like Chembur, Dahisar, Mira Road & Bhayander in Mumbai, the RBK Educational Institutions has also spread its wings to Mahuva in Gujarat. All these schools have been imparting world-class education by implementing a comprehensive curriculum in their English medium schools. Under her leadership, RBK International Academy in Chembur has emerged as one of the few eminent International Baccalaureate World Schools which focus on developing skills that are prioritised in the internationally followed curriculum. Life skills such as problemsolving & creative thinking are imparted under this extensive program. There are numerous enriching programmes which the IB world school offers. These include the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) & Diploma Programme (DP). Besides this, it is also one of the few reputable institutions authorized for conducting the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). RBK institutes also provide Cambridge International Certificate of Teaching & Learning (CICTL) & Cambridge International Diploma of Teaching and Learning (CIDTL). The Mother Toddler Program from Olive Trails preschool is designed for children between 9 months -1.5 years to nurture their motor abilities, language, socio emotional skills and cognitive skills.


Niyati has been envisioning to develop a 360 degree learning skills programme to inspire the young minds to grasp & learn new concepts conveniently. She has constantly tried to establish layouts of learning which help in unleashing and nurturing the potential of the students. Her efforts have consistently been directed at helping them to gain excellence as students as well as reliable and responsible citizens, and ultimately grow into the leaders of tomorrow.
