What did your child last say when you asked them "What did you learn in class?" "I forgot" is the all-too-common response. We believe kids need to be engaged in order to attend, while clearly showing parents the progress they are making. Everyone stays happy.
Our 400-hour structured and reinforcing curriculum sets us apart. No one else has anything like it. Attending 2 hours a week, an elementary school child could spend almost 4 years at your academy. Think of the lifetime value and reduced churn.
To keep kids engaged, we have gamification elements baked in a multiple points. From Oji Coins that are redeemable for prizes, achievement levels to motivate progression, and house teams to create a sense of camaraderie across levels and geographies; all these elements make kids want to come back to your academy.
We provide a number of IT systems to help you succeed. A dashboard administration system helps you manage CRM and operations at your academy. An 'Apprentice App' for kids is used to deliver pre-recorded video lessons. An 'Academy App' helps you make sure everything runs smoothly.
We have invested heavily in developing support systems to help you succeed at each of the 3 development stages for your Steamoji Academy. Our extensive training process, and ongoing support, will help you get from launch, to break even, to running a profitable business.
With Steamoji, you will not only feel good as you see first-hand how you are igniting sparks of creativity in the kids at your academy, you will also look good while doing it! At Steamoji HQ we have a priority on developing the 'Steamoji' brand nationwide, including a 'pre-seeding' program to hand off existing memberships in your territory to you on Day 1!
