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.
