What inspired you to become a Challenge Island Franchise Owner?

“My dad was a teacher and my dream to always follow his footsteps. I personally love kids and love to teach. I was always writing on his chalk board and teaching my cousins math on board. Always acting as a teacher. So after few years in USA I thought about looking for a very fun and learning franchise. It took me 9 months to find Challenge Island Franchise and at the first sight I was in love with Challenge Island.”

What is your favorite quote from a student, parent, or school about Challenge Island?

Parent: Challenge Island is a wonderful fun packed program for kids!!! The owner Aaska, is a very warm and friendly teacher and loves her job. She hosted a Challenge island themed birthday party at my son’s school for his classmates and the kids absolutely loved it. It was something different they learnt building rollercoasters. Kids have fun while learning important math and science concepts and can also use these ideas to make a fun science project for school. I would definitely recommend parents to enroll their kids with CI classes to learn and grow in a fun environment where math and science are not boring subjects at all.
