As a parent, all we want for our kids is an uninterrupted, comprehensive and burgeoning education. The gaps in our education system were evident even before the pandemic, and the need for a more expansive and holistic approach to our children’s education and development were made apparent to us as far back as 2016. Our experience of the lack of consistency, reliability, and the myopic approach to learning and all-round development fuelled our desire to create a platform that combined the techniques adopted by countries such as Japan, Sweden, Finland and the USA. This became our goal as well – to nurture and develop our future generations into responsible, compassionate, analytical, creative, bold and worldly-wise citizens of our country.
