GROW Educare Centres


GROW is a social enterprise setting a new standard for Early Learning in developing countries that unlocks Human Potential.

OUR MISSION. We achieve our vision by:

  • Creating an ecosystem for ECDs that ensure children receive high quality early learning. 
  • Scaling our model using social-franchising to become an internationally recognized and trusted ECD brand.
  • Mentoring ECD owners to run professional, sustainable businesses.
  • Equipping ECD practitioners with a complete toolkit plus the recipe for success.
  • Developing innovative tools and solutions that supports the ecosystem.
  • Engaging parents and communities to advocate for quality early learning 

Poor quality early learning for children in developing communities is a life sentence; perpetuating poverty and inequality. With your support we are bringing professional early-learning to marginalised communities while also ensuring the impact is sustainable, jobs are supported and women are empowered to run their own business. 


Quality ECD (Early Childhood Development) is globally recognized as the most impactful investment in human capital that a country can make.


Our social-franchise ECD centre model is:

  • making 5 Star education in disadvantaged neighboUrhoods accessible and affordable
  • while supporting sustainable job creation
  • and equipping women to run professional businesses.


Social-franchising is a not-for-profit model that uses the proven principles of traditional franchising to equip sustainable small businesses in low-income communities. We provide women who have a heart for children and head for business with a complete recipe for ECD success: our “Early Learning in a Box” and “Business in a Box” model.
