Fostering diversity and intelligence for children to be better equipped for the 22nd century
I am Rika Delicious from SuperOrganic Holdings. These days, we often hear the words “bilingual education”. The cost of raising a bilingual child is very expensive. At SuperOrganic School, we have a unique program. We offer an original program in which children learn multiple themes simultaneously in English. Our unique program is designed for children to become bilingual and develop the right hemisphere of the brain and their senses without spending a fortune. We believe no other place offers such a unique opportunity for children, before they even develop their first language, to learn from an early age, Maths, Science, and Society in English. In addition, by tasting organic farmers’ seasonal produce, children will develop resilience, becoming resourceful and effective problem solvers through gaining a wide knowledge, from global socio economic issues to seasonal food. They will have fun in eating the fresh organic food that they harvest and cook. You will be surprised to see how much your child will enjoy eating a variety of vegetables and fruits. Every Saturday there will be field trips planned. Children will develop an understanding of the economy and learn young entrepreneurship in a team through visiting Organic farmers and selling their own produce at the farmers’ market.
In addition, through our education exchange with India, children will learn Maths, IT skills and meditation. They will be better equipped with their skills and ability of self-control to survive in the 22nd century. It is a unique school, just once a week after school, without much change in your busy weekly schedule! We promise our small class size and one-to-one attention to children will provide a very nurturing and supportive environment.

By learning how to cook creatively they will foster their mental capacity, creativity and team work skills.It is a proven scientific fact that cooking which uses all the five senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch) stimulates the frontal lobe and boosts brain power.
At SuperOrganic School we don’t buy from supermarkets based on a recipe, but we examine the vegetables delivered from the farmer and check the taste then decide what to cook.We tackle the project of meal preparation by using their creativity, stimulating their mental powers and fostering team work.
