New Delhi [India], June 23 (ANI): Flintobox has announced the launch of Flintoclass, a comprehensive product which aims to power the independent and unbranded preschools to deliver high quality early learning program for kids. Founded in 2013, the Chennai based startup turns profitable this year, registering a revenue of 13 crores. The Flintoclass portfolio includes research based early learning curriculum, daily lesson plans, pre-packaged materials for every child - every day, online teacher training, assessment for teachers and children, parent communication app and class display posters, amongst others. Flintoclass aims to cater to aspiring entrepreneurs who want to start their own brand of pre-schools as well as the existing individual pre-school owners who would like to compete with branded pre-school giants and become the best in their neighborhood. "The first few years of life constitute the most important phase of human development. Around 90 percent of Brain Development occurs before the age of six. Pre-schools play a vital role in impacting early child development. Unfortunately, in India, the preschool penetration stands at less than 10 percent when compared to the developed countries where it is anywhere between 90 percent to 100 percent. Our new product deep dives to address this major concern," said CEO and co-founder Flintobox, Arunprasad Durairaj. "Flintoclass not only makes early child education accessible in tier I and tier II cities, but also deliver world-class pre-school education at an affordable price. The sole aim is to accelerate the growth of preschools by simplifying the process of running them. FlintoClass will be a boon for Edupreneurs across India. It is a Pre-school in a box," added Durairaj. Some of key features that Fintoclass provide, include but are not limited to: Comprehensive package to run a preschool: Everything needed to run a preschool is shipped right to the doorstep - A day-wise hour-wise lesson plan is formulated for the whole academic year and each and every material required to run the preschool is packed and shipped in a box. Teachers need to open the box, and start teaching. With this comprehensive package at hand, the pre-school owners have more time to run and scale their business. World-class curriculum loved by kids and parents: The curriculum is designed based on the framework inspired by Germany's Waldorf Education system and Play-way method. While Waldorf is the one of the first and best early childhood program in the world, Play-way method is based on the concept that play is the child's most natural way to learn. This integrated curriculum provides the best of both the worlds to the child. Unique pay-per-child method: The non-franchise, pay-per-child approach makes it the lowest investment option to start a world-class pre-school. FlintoClass also provides flexible payment plans that best suit the owner's requirements. 360 degree support, Training and Guidance: In addition to the monthly kit, Flintoclass partners also receive a comprehensive support on teacher orientation, monthly teacher training, child development assessment, infrastructure and ambiance design support, marketing assistance, operational training and support, parent communication app and a dedicated partner success manager to provide extensive support and advice all through the year.
