Develop soft skills through stories

Online classes for children from 5 years old and teenagers
Soft skills are the things that help a person not to get lost in the big world, not to fade away and not to be lost. We know how to develop soft skills in children carefully and with care. We know how to measure and assess soft skills. We have devised activities where a child will test skills in a safe environment with supportive adults and have fun doing it. And have a little more fun, because learning should be fun.

A person always has a story to tell
We use storycrafting, evidence-based practices and a holistic approach to deeply explore the child's own world. Empathic listening techniques allow our teachers, psychologists and tutors to see the person and their potential. We help children and teenagers to develop soft skills and parents to be good enough and not to burn out.

We help
We have developed game-based activities with different levels of immersion. You can study individually or in groups.
We help parents to be supportive and look after themselves. Individual sessions with specialists help to find a resource in parenting and not to burn out.
  • Safety
    A child only learns and develops in a safe environment: we do not grade or correct in class, we have gentle rules to help children with communication.
  • The child is author
    We follow a child-centred approach, i.e. we go from the child's request, the leading line is imagination and interest.
  • Evidence-based approach
    We rely on research, not daisy-chain fortune-telling or reading natal charts, but we respect everyone's choices.
  • Focus on quality
    Professionals have studied and worked hard, they are constantly undergoing supervisions so that they can now provide help.
  • Communication and play are the basic needs of a child
    Many classes are based on game mechanics, while playing, the child learns to communicate, build boundaries and is introduced to empathy.
  • Parental care
    No one knows a child better than their mum or dad. We help parents find their footing, feel empowered and take care of themselves.
