The big problem with early childhood education is the emphasis is on “rigorous instruction,” and young children are forced to sit at their desks doing academic work — sometimes with little or no recess and/or sufficient physical education.
Research in child development over decades as well as modern neuroscience clearly show that young children learn best when they are active. That means they get to put their hands on things, interact with other kids and adults, move a lot, create, play. But in the current school reform era, that’s not what is happening in too many classrooms
WELCOMING PLACE THAT ENGAGES EACH CHILD.
At Genius Aulad, every day begins and ends with a salaam, smile and a warm hug.
For 20 years, our cheerful and bubbly team of educators have dedicated themselves to nurturing happy young Muslims who love to learn, and are compassionate towards themselves and others.
CHEERFUL ATMOSPHERE AND QUALITY CHILDREN CARE.
At Genius Aulad, there is more than meets the eye when you and your child join our family. We provide a happy, secure and enriched learning environment for your children. Your child will feel safe and excited to explore and try new things. Simply put, feeling happy and safe makes learning possible at Genius Aulad.
DEDICATED CLASSROOMS WITH JOYFUL EDUCATORS.
Through wildly creative, hands-on lessons, exciting school events and social engagement. All our teachers nationwide go through hands-on, specialized training through the Genius Aulad Programme, which helps equip our teachers with the soft skills that they require. It is here that they will learn effective communication skills; how to manage a centre; to engage in continuous teaching developments; and attend the necessary corporate training. This comprehensive and holistic approach allows us to maintain a consistent quality in the education that we provide across the nation.
PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT FOR CHILDREN HAPPINESS.
As a Genius Aulad parent, you are indeed a part of our learning experience. We welcome you with open arms to work hand-in-hand with us as a team in supporting the educational journey of your child.
Parent involvement in Genius Aulad is the first step to parent engagement and, ultimately, parent partnership. When parents and our teachers work together to establish a thriving classroom, the effect on the students is profound. We at Genius Aulad organized various activities with parents such as Students-Parents Activities (SPA) held bi-monthly with a various super hands-on theme.
GENIUS AULAD LEARNING SYSTEM
Each one of our children are born unique with high curiosity exploring what they see, feel, smell and listen. Thus we are aware that this stage is highly crucial to connect them with everyday life.
In Genius Aulad, every children are equally important for future success. Our kindergarten modules are specially designed for modules and activities to nurture IQ and EQ development. While preparing our cheerful young generations with real world experience, they never forget about quality bonds with friends, teachers and of course with yourself as the parents.
Your child’s Preschool program is a homegrown educational program developed by our very own Education Department. Tailored for children between 4 to 6 years old, the program complies with the National Pre-School Curriculum Standard. It is designed to enable your child’s seamless transition into formal education after graduating from our school.
This popular full-day programme as a continuation of Genius Aulad’s I.LO.V.E Playschool program, Beyond Preschool promote a balance education that incorporates fun-learning and exploration. It is also an enhancement program that helps children from 4-6 years old to develop Living Skills, Communication & Interaction Skills, Mannerism & Values.
Our Playschool program is specially designed to cater to children between 2+ to 3 years old. One of its primary purposes is to accustom your child with the school environment and structured learning, so they are ready for Preschool. At this age, your child needs more attention and time to play; therefore, we have plan that will fit their early milestone as emergent learners.
Filling the niche for professional ‘play-and-learn’ Islamic preschools that were very much limited back during its formation, Genius Aulad has grown to include more than 70 high-performance branches nationwide – having nurtured more than 73,000 children throughout its history, making us the Islamic preschool brand with the largest database of students.
20 years have come and gone, and yet, we continue to be driven by our sense of responsibility and passion for learning. With more than 70 outlets across the country, along with plans to expand beyond our very borders, Genius Aulad continues to pave the way as the leading preschool in Malaysia.
In the next 3-5 years, Genius Aulad plan to open up 30 new centres across Malaysia and Indonesia. We’ve projected that 2020 will bring in RM2M+ of revenue up nearly 40% from 2018 across 70 centres. As of 2019, sales are approximately RM10M+ and we are projecting RM11M of sales in 2020 with a higher profit from franchise sales.
What our customers are saying
We have built a strong customer base which values our strong Islamic content and education structure. We take our customer review very seriously as we use feedback from customers to continually improve. We hold ourselves accountable to our brand standards and making sure the customer is always happy of our service. Based on our commitment to excellence, the number of students enrolled in our centres have steadily grown over 20% annually for the past 20 years to reach a peak of close to 6,000 students enrolled by 2020.
Building an international franchise
Out of our portfolio of 68 centres, 15 are owned by Corporate and 53 are franchise units. We have 4 more centres scheduled for opening in 2020.
The franchise fee is RM50k for a centre, along with other investments. Franchisees pay a monthly royalty based on number of students back to the Corporate Company.
The business plan moving forward is to continue expanding nationally via franchise units. To date, we have received hundreds of franchise inquiries and we are awarding franchise territories to only the most qualified franchisees that believe in our mission.
In 2018, we have started our international expansion with the addition of our first international centre in Pekanbaru, Riau Indonesia.
The global market for child care reached a value of nearly $339.1 billion in 2018, having grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% since 2014, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% to nearly $520.4 billion by 2022.
Pre-Kindergarten And Preschool Centers had the highest growth rate of nearly 8.9% during the historic period. The fastest growth of the pre-kindergarten and preschool centers can be attributed to the rise in the awareness levels about benefits of early leaning and care.
Asia-Pacific is the largest market for child care, accounting for almost 38.4% of the global market. It was followed by Western Europe, North America and then the other regions.
Our Market-trend-based strategies for the market include leveraging technology to optimize services and enhance customer satisfactory levels, focus on the middle-class population and adopting interest-driven learning methods to make learning more enjoyable for children.
The number of students enrolled in our centres have steadily grown over 20% annually for the past 20 years to reach a peak of close to 6,000 students enrolled by 2020. Currently among other competitors in Malaysia, Genius Aulad holds 20% of the market share.
Genius Aulad is looking for equity investments from RM500k up to RM3M to continue growth. The investment funds will mainly be utilized to fuel franchise growth and development through the implementation of new franchise blueprint, expansion of our franchise services, the strengthening of our management system and the development of new flagship centres.
Our goal is to also expand internationally in the future as we have already built the first international centre in Indonesia in 2018. We believe Genius Aulad can be a regional chain with hundreds of units in the future
