April 19, 2010 // Franchising.com // The Israeli company, Helen Doron Educational Group, an expert in the field of early childhood education, has recently signed a contract for its first Russian franchise in the region of Volgograd, Russia. Ekaterina Gildebrand, the new owner of the franchise will be bringing Helen Doron's latest program, Ready Steady Move! to the Russian Federation. This franchise joins a long list of Helen Doron Educational franchises operating in over 30 countries throughout the world.
The Volgograd franchise is unique in Helen Doron, because it features Ready Steady Move, a movement program which introduces children to a second language: English, German, Spanish, Mandarin or Hebrew. Until now, this program has been taught almost exclusively in Israel, recently gaining popularity through the successful Israeli television series, Ready Steady Hop, which is based on the music and activities of Ready Steady Move!
The combination of sport and English is no stranger to the new Volgograd franchisor; she herself is an English teacher, both of her parents are English teachers and her husband is a physical education teacher. She is also an accomplished mountain climber and instructor. Ekaterina is very excited about the new franchise: "I strongly believe that all children can achieve greater results in their development if encouragement is provided correctly and early in their lives. My vision and that of Ready Steady Move! are very close and I am thrilled to be able to bring this excellent, innovative program to Volgograd and to give our local children an opportunity to develop and learn new movement and language skills in a joyful and non-competitive fashion."
Ready Steady Move is an innovative movement with language program for children ages 3 to 8, that helps youngsters build healthy bodies and increase their capacity to absorb a new language. Fun, musical activities and movement based in yoga, Pilates, dance, martial arts and more, help educate children towards a more active lifestyle.
The Helen Doron Educational Group stands at the forefront of innovative educational systems since 1985, providing exclusive learning programs and quality educational materials for babies, children and adolescents the world over. Our quality educational programs include Helen Doron Early English and MathRiders for inspired learning in small groups; Polly the Collie, Super-Nature and Ready Steady Move! designed for larger groups (kindergartens and schools). The Helen Doron educational franchise model invites entrepreneurs to join a successful business operation that benefits children around the world.
