Redefining Early Childhood Education
We bring together the best of educational science, technology and child care expertise to unveil your child's infinite potential.
Our Brand Belief
It's not about what you learn, it's how you learn
At Fueling Brains, we are trying to develop something called fluid intelligence in our children. Fluid intelligence is the ability to adapt to new situations, to apply logic and creative thinking on problems that you've never experienced before. In other words, we are teaching kids how to learn and to be passionate about that learning before we start piling on the what-to-learn.
Fueling Brains will transform the world of early childhood education through its holistic, whole brain development. Children will grow into well-rounded, well regulated and joyful adults who serve their community and shape the future.
Our mission at Fueling Brains is to redefine early childhood education with a research led approach and provide children with 'equity of opportunity' for lifelong success and wellness.

Values that Drive Us
We are defined by our core values and we live these values in our daily lives. These values help us navigate our path through our brand mission. As a brand we understand that our values get transferred to the entire ecosystem including the students, parents, educators and society in general: hence they are immensely important to us.
Divine DiscontentWe believe that growth and learnability defines humanity and that remains one of our core values that gets reflected in our ecosystem and inspires them to make continual growth part of their daily lives. We strive for holistic development. Internalisation - Growth of our employees, our students, our parents and our partners is utmost important and we believe growth has to be balanced.
Persistent GrowthWe believe that growth and learnability defines humanity and that remains one of our core values that gets reflected in our ecosystem and inspires them to make continual growth part of their daily lives. We strive for holistic development. Internalisation - Growth of our employees, our students, our parents and our partners is utmost important and we believe growth has to be balanced.
Liquid and LinkedWe aren’t vapour that is disconnected. We aren’t ice that is connected but rigid. Instead, we are fluid and agile like water but still connected to each other. We acknowledge the different backgrounds and cultures we all come from yet we unite our unique viewpoints and diversity for the greater good. Internalisation - We are a start-up within a start-up. We are only successful if we stand as a team, wear multiple hats and exhibit agility in our actions. It’s vital for us to acknowledge & appreciate the diverse cultures & view-points that impacts our ecosystem, it’s the unity in diversity we seek.
Relentless AuthenticityOur actions are a true reflection of our belief & values and our authenticity defines our curriculum, our statements, the food we serve the students and the attitude we carry everyday. It’s our way of life. Internalisation - Internally as an organization, this means that each of us needs to be true to what we are rather than trying to adjust & pretend what others want us to be. Just like our education, we believe in Assets Based hiring so that people are appreciated for the strengths they have.
