Happy LadyBird was started in December 2020 to consolidate on an almost decade experience in education. Over the years, I have worked in different roles in education and those amazing roles set me up to start and run the company.
Happy LadyBird is an education technology platform with a stake in the future of childhood learning experience design. We believe “play” is the most important element in childhood learning as it allows children to be expressive and explorative.
We apply creative play-based learning approaches in all our learner experience designs. All our courses and classes are learner-focused and interactive. We design learner experiences based on 4 core tenets we want our learners to imbue; they are: creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. Our classes are available online and in-person to children between the ages of 18 months to 12 years.

My experience with the program has been life-changing. I got access to quality courses that provided world class information on how to build a business from scratch; it’s almost like a mini MBA program. My expectations going into the program was to gain the much needed knowledge to scale my business and also get some funding. I was really happy with how well paced the program was. It allowed me to focus on my business and study without feeling overwhelmed.
The only challenge I encountered during the program was with information sharing. I often struggled with receiving information on time and often had to rely on third parties like the Telegram group
Finally, please give us a quote about your motivation, your vision of Africa or your personal ambitions
Education is a collaborative effort among various stakeholders from parents, teachers and schools to education companies and the government. We are excited to play our part in shaping young minds and ensuring through our creative play-based approach to learning that they are adequately skilled for the future of work; regardless of what that might look like.
In the next few years, Africa’s children population is projected to increase by a billion. We have a significantly young population and we need to adequately prepare them to be prosperous through various education intervention; not just formal school but parallel programs that upskill and reskill to ensure that we are ready to take our place on the world stage because that is an inevitability.
