Gaya Ragavan invested in the franchise for the proven business model and cutting-edge curriculum but found so much more through freedom and fulfillment with the brand. Gaya became IDEA Lab Kids franchisee in March of 2020 along with her husband when they took over the formerly Das Labs-owned Spring Branch (8404 Katy Freeway) in Houston, Texas.
“Right into the pandemic with the start of a new venture. It was challenging but have enough good things to say about our investment in IDEA Lab Kids.”
Gaya as a women entrepreneur is an Engineer with a Master’s degree and more than 12 years of entrepreneurship in manufacturing oil & gas equipment, wanted to explore the field of education and child care. Came to know about Idea labs through one of her friends and was excited about the STEAM curriculum and different approach towards involving kids in this curriculum unlike other competitors like Kumon or Mathnasium.
The only child care experience for Gaya is being a mother of two. She emphasizes that the foundation of their business comes from both the groundbreaking array of services offered and their fantastic team of staff. Gaya also considers the community at large an extension of their team; their IDEA Lab Kids branch works with local children’s groups throughout Houston including local schools, churches and the Girl Scouts of America.”
Gaya continues to learn and grow with Idea Lab and dreams to educate the next generation in every possible small way.
