Charity profile

GROW Educare Centres partners with and equips women who run Educare centres in disadvantaged communities to establish and run excellent, high-quality Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres in that are also financially sustainable businesses. Each centre aims to achieve 5 Star early learning standards so that children can be ready for school and life.

The GROW Educare Centres social franchise model invests in, trains and mentors women to run high–quality early learning centres for preschool children aged between 2 and 5 years, that are also sustainable businesses. 

The GROW Educare Centres project empowers women who are currently running community-based early learning centres in disadvantaged communities. These centres are often under-resourced with unskilled teachers. GROW converts these centres, using a social-franchise-scaling model, into high-quality centres that are financially sustainable. Our aim is to change the status quo of education in these communities by offering quality and professionalism that has never been seen before.
