Lessons to succeed

Safari Kid is a brand that boasts of teaching every chid via its unique proprietary methods. The USP of the brand is its brain train method and high five system of exploration. It is the only global preschool available with presence in six countries.

There are many challenges in this Industry too. Jitendra Karsan, CEO, Safari Kid, India says: “Apart from franchising industry being unorganised, changing mindset of the partners / prospective partners is the biggest challenge. Most budding entrepreneurs and investors look at education solely as lucrative business but forget the essence of education sector, that is, to make a difference to each and every child. Quality control is also a challenge in any franchise based business. Safari Kid has a defined mechanism to control quality at each and every center and most of the prospective partners find it astonishing that we are able to replicate the same learning environment across all our centers crossing all barriers of host location culture.”
