AfterSchool Brain Training

Jungle Jingle

After School Brain Training! Want something fun but also beneficial to your child to do after school? How about brain training! Brain training can help students learn better, and retain what they've learned in school for longer. Making homework easier and tests less stressful, as well as improving self confidence!


Our training is designed to be fun and interactive, pairing a student with their own personal Brain Trainer to work with them one-on-one in reaching their full potential as a learner.


We have training available in Al Wahda, Khalifa City A, and coming soon to Khalidiya!

Bullying Experience in Youth: Nature & Intervention  


Contrary to the belief that bullying is common, thus benign and "normal" part of the child's and/or adolescent's experience, there is cumulating counter-evidence against this common belief.


The Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation, in collaboration with Yale University, is hosting a Parenting Talk titled 'Bullying Experience in Youth: Nature & Intervention' as part of their comprehensive Early Childhood Development (ECD) Parenting Program. 


Taking place in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, the talks aim to support and empower parents of young children in the UAE.
