NumberNagar, an innovator in experiential learning solution in Maths, English and Sciences is offering franchise opportunities all over India. NumberNagar is a specially designed experiential learning solution for children of ages 6 to 14 with the objective of making learning contextual, engaging and enjoyable. NumberNagar plans to establish 25 Franchises in Bengaluru over the next few months and a network of over 300 franchises all over India in the next three years.
One significant step towards achieving holistic development of a learner is to actively put the learner at the centre of the learning process and delegate the teacher to guide and facilitate learning. Also, most learning environments involve groups of children with different abilities, skills, interests and learning styles. To address such diverse groups of learners, it is of paramount importance for teachers, instructors and school leaders to gain awareness of and actively implement differentiated instruction. It is also of great importance to understand that every child is a unique combination of Multiple Intelligences. Therefore, learning environments need to cater to children's' diversified intelligence matrices.
The NumberNagar after-school programme offers holistic and integrated learning opportunities through a unique combination of creative learning space and differentiated facilitation methodology. This programme has been designed based on the trademarked principle of 5C. The 5C learning cycle begins with Curiosity - where the urge to learn is kindled. This curiosity when followed by appropriate guidance through instruction, activities, understanding and application provides Clarity. Clarity across multiple concepts and subjects leads to Connectivity amongst concepts, topics and subjects. When all these are successfully accomplished, Communication of one's understanding effectively completes the learning cycle. When the above 4Cs are achieved continuously and consistently it leads to Competence. Although not necessarily sequential, these 5C's lay the foundation for learning.
In the words of Rajesh Dembla, "The NumberNagar team is a perfect blend of talent, commitment and passion that attracted me in the first place. I was always interested in associating with an organization with a sustained focus to create serious impact in the field of education. NumberNagar achieves this by providing a creative and exploratory learning space and personalized facilitation suited to individual learner needs. The non-restrictive space provides freedom of movement and exploration to children. The learning curriculum is mapped to what each student learns in their school, the enhancement is provided in the customised methodology backed by 5C. Each learner is provided with customised session plans and assessment based on their primary intelligence, their current cognitive levels and their interest towards various subjects. Currently, these programmes run for Maths, English and Sciences. Hence, my belief is that this Franchise Program will be the next game changer in education."
The NumberNagar after-school programme has been effectively running at NumberNagar Franchise centre at Gubbalala, near Kanakapura Road in Bengaluru, for more than two years. Through this path breaking learning programme, NumberNagar has touched the lives of more than 100 families in the community and continues to provide relentless service to learners of various needs. The programme has created a strong inclusive community in the neighbourhood for appreciation of bespoke learning experiences. Students, siblings and families return year after year to immerse themselves in this unique learning experience.
With steady increase in the number of customers, NumberNagar is now looking forward to expand its footprint to 300 Franchises in India over the next three years. To start with, the team aims to set up 25 Franchise opportunities across Bengaluru in the next few months, and invites inspired individuals to take up the cause of educational entrepreneurship.
