Done & Dusted – Our Enterprising Easter Workshop was a huge success!

Image
  After a few weeks of announcing our first Enterprising Easter workshop tagged ‘Creativity Unleashed’ , we had 51 children sign up from Nigeria and the United Kingdom. It was simply one hour of having our kids off the screens and in a more engaging manner. Amongst other activities, the kids learnt that they could be creative if they: Form the habit of moving. Open up to new experiences. Create space & time to think. Use the right language. Surround themselves with people who inspire them. They got to watch 2 videos of 2 inspiring people who started their businesses which led them both to meet with the former first lady of the United States of America – Michelle Obama! Because we believe kids learn more by doing, they had to work on a drink recipe. See some submissions below of our budding mixologists!   I'm looking forward to our Sensational Summer Workshop!  Are you? Registration details would be shared soon. Yours in inspiring creative excellence, Yejide Akio

The Emperor's new clothes...

Image
  Recently I read the story of the Emperor’s new clothes to my kids as they prepared for bed.   The background of the story is where two swindlers arrived at the capital city of an emperor who spends lavishly on clothing at the expense of state matters. Posing as cloth makers, they offered to supply him with magnificent clothes that are invisible to only those who are stupid. The emperor hired them, and they went to work. Each time the emperor and his officials visited to check with the progress of these new clothes, the looms were empty but they pretended to avoid being thought stupid. Finally, the weavers reported that the emperor's suit was finished. They pretended dressing him up and he then he sets off in a procession before the whole city. The townspeople uncomfortably went along with the pretense , not wanting to appear stupid. Suddenly a  child  blurts out – “The Emperor is naked - he is wearing nothing at all”! The people then realized that everyone had been fooled. A

Sweet Summer Success!!!

  So... We decided to engage and motivate kids this summer by not only learning the very basics of entrepreneurship but also creating a business project with the help of their Parents whilst enhancing their Maths, English and Artistic skills too... Call for Registrations started on the 14 th July and closed on the 31 st July. 80 students registered for the programme from all over the world to include countries such as USA, Canada, UK, and Nigeria (with the bulk from Nigeria). Parents enrolled their kids for the 5-day programme for different reasons. Based on our survey,  52% believed that they could learn and develop important skills for the future. Summer Activities Summer Classes started on Monday – 3 rd  of August by 12noon. An online learning platform called ‘Seesaw’ was used and login details were sent to Parents 1 hour before classes commenced. Activities included   17 Videos (including 5 introductory videos) and 15 activities. These were to be completed by the students after

Summer at the Kidpreneur Klub!

Summer is here again! Although in a slightly different way... Much as it is a good time to take a break from academic work, it is said that NO classroom work particularly during the long summer holiday leads to ‘summer slide’ or ‘summer brain drain’. This means that students may lose some academic progress made over the previous school year. Hence, students need to stay continually motivated but in a relaxed way. At the Kidpreneur Klub, we help kids develop future ready skills in a fun way through our project-based entrepreneurship program using online tools and age-appropriate resources. Get your kids engaged and motivated this season by working on a business project. By taking our abridged version of the business and life skills course for kids, kids are also helped with their Math, English and Artistic skills... And guess what? it is FREE! We look forward to welcoming your child/children to the Kidpreneur Klub! See link below and Flyer attached for more details... https://forms.gle/

"Life is like a game of chess. To win, you have to make a move. Knowing which move to make comes with IN-Sight and Knowledge"...- Allan Rufus My 1st business for 10 years now has been international school placements and education advisory services...   Last Friday, I sent an email to a school to apply for a student and I got a rather quick response quite different from the normal response which would have been - "Go online to complete an application form for the student.. OR "Here’s the link”. The response I got was, ‘What is the child’s profile’ You may ask, why would a school be asking for a child/student's profile? Here are a few reasons why: Profiles are almost always requested for either through personal statements, mission statements, scholarship essays, etc.to get a 'sense' of the type of student. They want to see that the student is a perfect fit for the school. The likes of Harvard, Princeton, Cambridge, MIT requi
