A bright future starts here

Every child deserves to thrive. By working together, we can help make sure every child gets the power to succeed.

The first five years of a child’s life are a crucial time where developmental foundations are set in place for success at
school, and beyond.

In spite of this, over 80% of our country’s lower income households do not have access to any form of early learning for their children.Every child deserves to thrive. By working together, we can help make sure every child gets the power to succeed.

A SmartStart for all

To close the early learning access gap, SmartStart has developed a dynamic social franchise that combines a proven early learning programme with the creation of employment opportunities.

Designed to help equip children with age-appropriate skills and foundations, the programmes are implemented by specially selected and trained members of the community.

Our social franchise model relies on partnership. We work hand-in-hand with public, private and community-based organizations. Critical to our success is our partnership with community-based NGOs who operate as SmartStart Franchisors. They work to bring SmartStart to life in communities across our country – driving recruitment, employing SmartStart Club Coaches and providing day-to-day support and quality assurance to our SmartStart Practitioners.

Our current partners include:
