Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori dedicated her entire life to the research and development of a child’s progression. By observing the critical periods of the child’s development, Maria Montessori was able to constitute sensory learning tools and resources, which promote learning. The pillars of this internationally recognized teaching style can be found in every single one of our apps; autonomy of the child, developing self-confidence, the joy of learning and discovery through material – just to name a few!

Jean Piaget - Scientist

Jean Piaget is a constant source of inspiration for the team of Edoki Academy. The Swiss scientist has built in the last century a monumental work on the development of intelligence. For him, children are little scientists who conduct their own experiences to learn "the world." The adults should therefore provide an environment and tools to manipulate, in order to help them. Which is great: this is exactly our mission.
