Our story

In 2012, two students – Magda and Sylwia met during an English course at the Warsaw School of Economics, accidentally sitting in the same desk. During their education at the university, it turned out that they had a lot of common activities and during the conversations during the breaks, a friendship was slowly born. The girls started working during their studies in various companies – both smaller and corporations. They began to wonder how the parents, who have no choice but to work late in the evening, do not have as much time for their children as they would like to have. The analysis of the Polish education system, its shortcomings in empirical teaching, as well as the soul of an entrepreneur led to the fact that 8 years ago, in 2013, Sylwia and Magda founded Mały Geniusz. Initially, they operated as a start-up, later transformed into a company.

In the first year of operation, they extended the range of the summer camp to Poznań and Łódź, and in the following year Little Geniusz was already in 7 largest cities in Poland: Wrocław, Kraków, Poznań, Warsaw, Łódź, Lublin and Gdańsk. After a short time, the company expanded its offer with additional classes, events and workshops. Little Geniusz also began to cooperate with companies and conduct workshops at children’s universities. So far, over 13,000 children have taken part in the classes.

Our mission

...CREATING AMBITIOUS AND FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN TO FULLY EXPLORE THEIR POTENTIAL. WE PROMOTE CREATIVE THINKING, AUTONOMY AND WE ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO LEARN BASING ON THEIR SELF-MOTIVATION

WE WANT …

…science to be a true passion of discovery, not a mindless memorizing of information provided. The education system today basically requires students to reproduce rather than create. Schools do not teach independence, critical thinking, logic, and above all do not arouse enthusiasm for acquiring knowledge.
Having identified the deficiencies in the Polish education system, we decided to meet the expectations of parents who want to ensure their children the best possible start into an adult life.


WISDOM

Knowledge, skills and information gained during classes will shape wise and educated people in the future.

 

AMBISION
The goals in the classroom are set high. We want to motivate our Little Geniuses to get more involved and attracted by science.

We

...co- founders of Little Genius.
