Our Story

We are parents. We are professionals. We lead busy lives and live in uncertain times. We are stretched so very near our limits and strive for work-life balance.

We care, above all, for the future of our children. We want their education to be full of enrichment, to reclaim each day for them as one of wonder and excitement.

Lorraine is a mother of two active boys, who is balancing or attempting to balance her busy work and family life. Jama is doing the same except with two girls. We came together to find a better way for working parents to manage our busy lives - starting with our kids' education.
