Improving learning outcomes in early years at scale affordably

Kreedo is working towards democratizing quality early education in India. It partners with affordable private schools (APS) and preschools to transform the way they deliver learning. Kreedo’s 6T framework includes a combination of toys, teacher training, timetable, teamwork (books), theory and technology that enables learning at school and home.

Kreedo has 50% higher than market learning outcomes. With a blended learning approach having activity based learning at its core, it changes the delivery in schools from teaching (or transfer of information) to teacher-guided self-learning thus significantly improving Foundational literacy and numeracy. Kreedo does at an extremely affordable price, thus making it a high quality solution with an unbeatable value for money proposition.

The rationale behind the investment

Kreedo has an active community of teachers, students and a growing community of APS schools across different cities and semi urban locations in India. The funds raised in the current round will be utilized by Kreedo to scale up its APS platform across India and provide quality ECE solutions for the mass market.
