The Curious Child Initiative

Children are born with enormous curiosity, an eagerness to learn and a strong will to solve problems. Because of this, they can be very easily taught how to think, learn and behave. These are the principles behind our modules within The Curious Child Initiative for Kindergarten to 2nd graders

An initiative has 3 SERIES => 10 MODULES each => Taught in one hour class over the course of 10 weeks.
