Who is Kid Genius?

About us

Kid Genius is an international educational system designed for the healthy development of the child’s brain. The goals of Kid Genius are to encourage and develop the intellectual skills and abilities of children from the early age. Following this vision, Kid Genius combines “best from different worlds” by applying the best experiences of the East and the West.

Mental arithmetic (jap. Anzan) derived from the traditional Eastern discipline, nowadays a popular and modern educational program is increasingly present in the western part of the world. This revolutionary program for the development of cognitive abilities of children is very successfully implemented at over 200 international Kid Genius centers around the world 

The international school of mental arithmetic Kid Genius in its teaching applies the original HIKARI光 program of mental arithmetic. The program has a unique method originating from Japan, a country that represents the cradle of this prestigious discipline. It was created as a result of many years of work by psychologists, pedagogues and other experts in the field of education, and it is based on the use of the ancient calculating device abacus (jap. Soroban), whose visualization achieves extraordinary fast calculations. However, quick calculation is not our main goal, but a clear indicator that our students are on the right track in mastering abilities such as clear visualization, focus, concentration, analytics, logical thinking and memory. And ultimately, what we strive for – self-awareness and intelligence that undoubtedly come along with this process

Why Kid Genius?

2. Thanks to a unique method, our students achieve outstanding results in a short time. After only two months, they are able to count mentally, which is not the case with other programs that do not achieve such results even after years of practicing.

3. The program is flexible and carefully designed, taking into consideration the individual needs of each child. Learning is practiced in small groups, through fun activities, different games and competitions, where the most important thing is the relaxing and creative atmosphere and positive emotional relationships.
