Dibber – Northern Europe’s largest early education group is now in New Delhi, plans nationwide expansion


Dibber, Northern Europe’s largest education group with more than 600 preschools and schools in 10 countries, is now opening their first preschool in New Delhi. The group plans to open 40 more by the end of 2024 across India. Situated in Greater Kailash, New Delhi, the preschool was inaugurated by H.E. Ms. May-Elin Stener, Ambassador of Norway to India, Marvin Dsouza, CEO Dibber Schools, India and Mr. Pål Ødegaard, Chief Growth Officer, Dibber Global. Dibber offers the well-established Nordic pedagogy, focused on social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of children between the ages of 1 to 6 years. Dibber’s purpose is to “develop lifelong learners with a heart for the world” and part of that is – having a heart for oneself and others. Dibber’s Nordic-inspired pedagogy is locally adapted and infuses India’s rich cultural heritage and ethos, ensuring a holistic child-centered approach that is culturally relevant and globally competitive.

The Group was founded by two passionate pedagogues Randi and Hans Jacob Sundby in 2003. They developed “The Dibber Childhood” TM , a well-researched and continuously enhanced pedagogical framework that supports children’s well-being, development and learning. At Dibber, each child is seen as unique, valuable and benefits from an individually tailored learning experience.

Speaking at the inauguration, H.E. Ms May-Elin Stener, Ambassador of Norway to India said, “I am happy to see that Dibber, a Norwegian business entity that entered India in 2023 is flourishing here, showcasing for other Norwegian businesses that India is an excellent market to explore.

Mr Marvin D´Souza adds At Dibber, we believe that India’s children are the global influencers of the future. With a focus on holistic development and personalized learning, we aim to nurture their curiosity, creativity,communication, and confidence, preparing them to be global citizens and make a positive impact on society. We have established a solid foundation in many Indian cities and spreading our wings to North India is naturally the
next step in our expansion plan.
