Our history



We started as a family company in 2010, named Developing child Multinational, registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission in Nigeria, and dedicated towards making social impacts on improving child development. In December 2013, a separate Research and Resource Center for child development was established in The Netherlands to technically support our activities in Nigeria. Our Netherlands based subsidiary was named Child Development Research & Resource Center B.V, (CDRC) The Netherlands.

In 2014, all our business subsidiaries were merged to form The Gritwel Earlychildhood Limited, publicly declared as a social enterprise. CDRC; our former Netherlands based subsidiary became Gritwel Earlychildhood Research Center B.V.

Gritwel Earlychildhood is headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria and currently establishing business subsidiaries in more than 10 countries across Africa, Europe and North America.
