How it started

Over the past three years, I invested in a number of activity books to keep my son gainfully occupied. However, I gradually realised that these books cover similar concepts in different designs. With this in mind, I started conceptualising and creating activities which were different - in many aspects.

I created situations such as escape from the room riddles - where you have to solve a riddle and put the code on the door to open it, puzzles such as crack the codes - where you have to find out the hiiden relationship between two different things, Picture reading - turning into a detective and scouting the picture for the answers to my not so straightforward questions and Logical Reasoning - spotting patterns in alphabets, numbers and pictures - which essentially encompasses verbal and non-verbal reasoning, as we know it. He absolutely loved doing them which encouraged me to keep at it. And the rest, as they say is history!

We are proud to be led by a team of talented women

The journey has just began

My journey of spreading quality education far and wide has just began. And you are in it as much as I am. The consistency with which you do these activities will determine you child's progress and my aim of bringing about an all round holsitic brain development in the crucial formative years. I keep reminding parents, that more than the correct answer, it is the thought process that matters. Give your child an opportunity to solve these activities independently and help them discover the genius within!

A Linkedin message like this makes me realise that I am headed in the right direction - " I'm big on technology within primary education in the UK. I recently visited a young boy and he was deep in your book- I love it!! Both stimulating and relevant, I thought I'd send a quick note- would be great to connect."
