Brainworks Kids creative learning was established in May 2008 by Better Value brands. Started with 14 company owned outlets in Western India, Brainworks launched its franchising drive in October 2008.[1] It offers facilities like a playschool, nursery, KG, day care and hobby classes for children.[2]

Programmes[edit]

The Brainworks LDP (Learning Development Program) consists of the ‘windows of opportunity’ that maximizes development through a scientific curriculum for Preschool, Structured Learning Day care and curriculum based creative learning for hobby classes.[3] The three programs that run are:

  • Playgroup for 1.5 to 2.5 year old children and Nursery for 2.5 to 3.5 year old children.
  • Structured Learning Daycare for children 1.5 yr – 6 yr old children
  • Hobby Classes is a six-month program held once a week (1.5 hr session) for children 1.5 to 3 year old.

Curriculum[edit]

Brainwork has designed its curriculum and methodology based on scientific brain research studies. The goal of Brainworks preschools is to provide a research driven teaching and learning environment that maximises the "window of opportunity" for the brain for children between 0 and 6 years of age.[4]

Facilities[edit]

Brainworks schools are located in residential locations. The average school size is about 1500 to 2,000 square feet (190 m2). This area includes at least four classrooms, a play area, a pantry, storage spaces and child-friendly washrooms. All washrooms are self-contained within the classroom or within the school complex.

Partnerships[edit]

Brainwork is an initiative of Popular Prakashan to reach the mass audience.[4][5] The parent company Better Value Brands Pvt. Ltd. consists of group firms including Talwalkars, Popular Prakashan, Better Value Restaurants, Lateral Heights and Naturals Ice cream.

Franchising[edit]

The company's growth strategy is to grow through a prudent mix of company-owned centres as well as through franchising. It plans to offer franchisees a significant value by providing them not just pre-school or day-care curriculum but also merchandising opportunities through Brainworks books.[1] Brainworks' has expanded through the franchising model and has play schools across Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur in the State of Maharashtra, India[6] and will be launching franchisees in Delhi, Jaipur and Agra soon.[1] Franchise Model caters to the consumers in the key metropolises in India where the need for education is overwhelming.
