about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Fear and anxiety is a major issue & prevents potential. It is not spoken about and way too many do not have skills and tools to deal with it. Knowing our emotions is the base of being human and all relationships. Especially with ourselves. Dreaming is essential. It is disturbing to see how many do not know how to dream. Seeing teachers, parents & children struggling was our inspiration

How does your innovation work in practice?

Using dynamic, relatable, fun characters we have both on line & hard copy interactive material for children, parents & teachers.
SEL for us is fun, engaging and interactive.
SUPER EXCITING online program that takes our curriculum onto tech to use globally in English, Spanish & Arabic.
The books are delightful and illustrated by an animator creating magical interactions.
Our intervention uses a holistic approach that supports self discovery and growth for teachers, parents and children.
By doing this we encourage and support an environment that covers all areas and ages of a child's life integrating the lessons that we are dealing with.
The teacher/parent training happens alongside or firstly to take the teacher/parent through their own processes. we believe you cannot teach what you have nt experienced yourself.
The books - storybooks, craft sticker book, workbooks and online program can be used independently, self led at school & home
