Gritwel Earlychildhood at a glance

Gritwel Earlychildhood limited is a social and non-dividend Nigerian multinational childcare company, headquartered in Lagos and currently establishing business subsidiaries in more than 10 countries across Africa, Europe and North America.

We are set-up to provide a social framework for tackling challenges related to child development and care, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. We aim to build a world where full potential of every child can be realized through optimal Health, Physical, Cognition, Emotional and Social Development, especially in the early years.


Our vision is driven by the known fact that early childhood is the most rapid and developmentally sensitive period in human life, forming the foundational basis of an assured future. We aim to be a major part of the driving force that advocates for improved quality of childhood care.

Within the scope of our social commitment, Gritwel Earlychildhood operates four main business divisions, focused on the core areas of child development; including Education & Crèche, Child stimulation (Toys), Medical care, babycare products and Research. All our business divisions have been strategically set-up to create value in diverse ways for every developing child and contribute to society’s future viability. This commitment is an integral element of Gritwel Earlychildhood’s corporate policy.

Like an NGO, we are very committed to our social mission, but like a corporate business, we generate our own revenues through our dedicated and philanthropic social investors, making us financially sustainable. Our business model does not strive to maximize profits but rather to serve humanity’s most pressing needs. While our investors recoup their investments, all further profits are reinvested to expand our reach and improve our services.

As a social company, our focus is to subsidize our services, to ensure affordable social benefits without compromising quality and standards. Gritwel Earlychildhood Limited is governed by an executive management team of professionals and advisory directors. Our professional and specialist teams consist of highly motivated and internationally recognized individuals with educational backgrounds and experience in education, core sciences, psychology, pediatrics medicine, and neurological medicine.
