I started my journey as a school teacher in playschool and in short span of time I developed good report with kids and could understand their psychology. I started giving improvement ideas to the school management which received positive feedback from parents and management appreciation. During this stint, I realized that not only did I have the requisite skill to run my own school but also that I passionately enjoyed being with kids – guiding and nurturing them. I have always envisioned that the core idea of a playschool should be to provide an exposure to the best of modern developments while simultaneously encouraging the kid to understand and respect their own traditional customs and values. This core idea finds manifestation in the name of my school – Kidz Pathshala.
2.Brief us on the growth strategy and franchise expansion of brand.
It is now widely accepted that attending a playschool is far more beneficial for a kid when compared to teaching at home because of the effectiveness of group learning and early socialization. To further this idea and provide one of the best educational services to kids, Kidz Pathshala aims to expand through franchisee. However, in this regard we look forward to only those who have a passion to do something for the kids. Growth requires creative and detailed planning powered by impeccable execution. We do not believe in expanding on the cost of quality or what I believe to be spreading like Mushroom. Our idea is to spread like jasmine. Focused planning shall always remain to be the cornerstone of our growth.
