An institution of the magnitude of the Children's Academy Group of Schools needs a powerful force behind it to move it forward each and every day. Since the past two decades and a half, this force is provided by the sons of the founder Shri V. V. Bhat, who are Mr. Rohan Bhat and Mr. Rohit Bhat. They are now assisted by their spouses, Mrs. Monica Bhat and Mrs. Charlotte Bhat, in looking after the several minute details that move and shake this humongous academy.

Having been schooled in Children's Academy himself, Mr. Rohan Bhat knew fully well what he needed to do to take the institution to a higher level. He stepped into his father's shoes in 1991 and since then there has been no looking back. He rose to the post of Principal of Children's Academy, Malad East, and thereafter as the Chairman of the Group of Schools. He followed the founder's pedagogic principles, but kept moving ahead with the rapidly changing times to give the academy a much wider dimension than it had in the nineties. Today, most of the administrative and managerial decisions are taken from his desk. Unlike most other educational heads, Mr. Rohan Bhat always keeps himself abreast of the most intricate processes that take place within the premises.

Even though the younger son, Mr. Rohit Bhat, had a large responsibility looming ahead of him as soon as he took over the administrative functions of the school, he has proved beyond any doubt that he is indeed an indispensable unit in the management of the school. Mr. Rohit Bhat took up the responsibility of helming the first branch of the academy at Ashok Nagar, Kandivali, in 1998. A degree holder in science from Mumbai's reputed Bhavan's College, he soon brought new techniques into the educational methodologies used in the school and brought up the level of the fledgling institution at Ashok Nagar to the level of its predecessor at Malad. The Group of Schools soon spread to Thakur Complex, Kandivali, and everyone's responsibilities increased. Achieving growth without compromising on quality is something each member in the management team has striven for. Today, he also guides the Group of Schools as its CEO.

Ably assisting the two Bhat brothers are their wives – Mrs. Monica Bhat and Mrs. Charlotte Bhat. Mrs. Monica Bhat has taken up the responsibility of the Thakur Complex branch of the academy under her wing. This comparatively new branch has already assumed an almost equal status with the previous schools mainly due to her zealous dedication. Having joined in 1992, she was promoted as the administrator of Children's Academy, Thakur Complex, in 2011. She is also in charge of the Student Development Programme, which caters to the social, ethical, physical and intellectual needs of the students. Mrs. Charlotte Bhat joined in 1998 and ascended to the position of Head of Phonetic Programme in 2008 and has recently taken over the Employment Engagement Programme of the Group to oversee the needs of the hundreds of staff members across the huge institution.

Driven by a desire to take the educational journey forward, the Bhat family continuously implements various methods to keep the students and staff in a state of dynamism. It is because of them that the Group of Schools reaches enviable positions in various competitions and is locally revered as an educational institution par excellence.
