A unique preschool experience, our Helen Doron Kindergarten curriculum is founded on Helen Doron’s many years of experience in the English as a Second Language industry for young children and her own philosophy on child development.
The Helen Doron Kindergarten method nurtures childrens’ inherent potential for excellence and provides a strong basis for literacy in mother tongue English as well as mathematical and scientific thinking. Because young minds are more receptive to learning through music, it is core to all lessons at Helen Doron Kindergarten. Helen Doron certified teachers also use play, games, stories, workbooks, flashcards and their own creativity to make classes fun and exciting. Children build a foundation of excellence and a love for learning.
With 30 years of experience, we know your prime concern is to fully maximize your investment. When you purchase a Helen Doron® Kindergarten Master Franchisor area, you receive territorial exclusivity to market both the Helen Doron Kindergarten and Helen Doron English Learning Centres. In addition, you can offer exclusive Helen Doron® holiday and summer activities to further ensure that your Helen Doron campus is fully utilized all year long.
Establish yourself and quickly expand
Helen Doron Kindergarten Master Franchisors enjoy territorial exclusivity over a large area that provides a substantial target population base. You will be expected to first set up and operate your own kindergarten campus and then quickly expand brand presence through sub-franchise sales.
Choose the pedagogic model right for your area
As a global enterprise, we understand that one size fits all doesn’t always work—especially when children are involved. We offer three models so that you can pick the one most suited to your market.
Helen Doron® Bilingual Kindergartens have a native English speaker and a local-language kindergarten teacher present at all times in the classroom.
Helen Doron® English-Enriched Kindergartens are taught by a local kindergarten teacher, reinforced by four hours of Helen Doron® activities daily, taught in English by a Helen Doron certified teacher.
Helen Doron® All-English Kindergartens in which all activities are taught in English by a Helen Doron® certified teacher with local kindergarten or early childhood development diplomas.
