About CreaKids

We make the most important resource in the world THRIVE

Heralding from Norway, the CreaKids brand was established in 2011 as part of the international holding company, Læringsverkstedet centres (www.laringsverkstedet.no).


Læringsverkstedet’s first preschool was founded in 2003, and has since then grown rapidly to become Norway´s largest preschool chain. Currently the group employs over 5000 people, each contributing to the development, care and education of more than 15,000 children in over 200 centres in Norway alone.


The global network has grown quickly and Læringsverkstedet / CreaKids centres are now available world wide. In 2013 the first international CreaKids location launched in Latvia with 1 centre, 30 employees and 100 children. Latvia will be opening 4 new locations by September this year. Expanding further afield, CreaKids are opening 16 centres in Sweden, 5 centres in Germany and an ongoing project in China.

Launched in 2015, CreaKids Ibn Battuta is the flagship CreaKids Early Learning Centre in the Middle East, and the first of many to come across the UAE and GCC. CreaKids Ibn Battuta employs 42 dedicated staff and is the source of learning to 135 children. This location has numerous classes catering from infancy to 6 years.


The owners from Norway have ambitious plans to expand Læringsverkstedet / CreaKids this year within the GCC and have secured their next location at The Sustainable City to meet the growing demand of child education in this growing community and the surrounding area.


CreaKids has consciously created a safe and pristine area where playful learning stimulates the mind, body, and self-confidence through unique, comprehensive methods and active adult mentoring.
