How it started
Our three kids have been using sticker books for years, but in the age of COVID-19, that communication system went out the window. I teach dance and we could not find a suitable reward system for students taking classes online. So we decided to enhance a tried and true method of positive student reinforcement through a digital platform that helps kids both achieve and be held responsible.

What drives us
We believe that positive reinforcement and delight is key to keep kids engaged. Every decision we have made has been in conjunction with a community of teachers, parents and students. Our advisory board provides us with an industry perspective that keeps us honest and on track. Three questions drive our development. What are we doing to make teachers’ lives easier? How are we keeping parents engaged? How are we helping kids feel empowered and rewarded? Only by answering these questions every single day do we remain focused on doing the right thing for teachers, parents and students.
