After operating two centres educating young children in Blenheim, New Zealand, the Little Footsteps business is looking to expand once again. A 100% family owned business, Little Footsteps' educating process "aims to provide a warm, child orientated centre that promotes optimum learning in a relaxed, welcoming and stimulating environment."
"In their first 5 years of life a child learns more and their brain undergos more growth than at any other stage in their life, which is why it is so important for them to be exposed to a high quality early learning environment," states Little Footprints on why it is targeting this age range of children.
As the organization is running this fundraising event on Indiegogo.com, the small social business seeks to offer a tangible perk to any donation provided. These perks range from a thank you note to hours or years for your child to attend the school. Essentially, if you donate enough money, you basically buy time at the school -- a pretty great opportunity for both sides of the equation.
