- Holistic learning environment.
No ramming and cramming. This means that through themes and exploring different phenomenons as a team, the children learn how things actually work and not just try to remember them for the next exam.
- Bonding with your own game educator.
Children have the same game educator each time and form a mentoring relationship with him/her. The game educator gets to know every gamer individually and give them personalised guidance.
- Stress less.
Unneeded and unnecessary stress kills motivation and actually hinders learning. We teach kids how to decompress, and live healthy gamer lifestyle.
