23 January 2019, New Delhi, KIDZOPEDIA:
Parents have an active role in the upbringing of every child. However the monotonous life of working couple does not give enough time for them to spend with their loved ones. Secondly, most of them are influenced by their surroundings and aspire, their children to be proficient in education to become professionally successful.
This aspiration becomes overboard at times, suffocating the child which reflects on the child’s overall performance. Clueless at this stage they attend PTMs and the blaming game starts teachers on parents and vice versa, which further ruins the child’s freedom. Under these trying circumstances perplexed, and know not what needs to be done…..
New Delhi based Couplepreneurs, PATILs have designed an innovative initiative, KIDZOPEDIA, an aggregator of after school activities. The first of its type online platform which helps parent identify the best after school learning courses and academies to broaden the spirit of their child in his / her favorite skills.
In an exclusive chat, YASHODHRA PATIL CEO of KIDZOPEDIA EDTECH PVT LTD explains about the innovative initiative:
How did you identify the problem: When parents see their child is not scoring high in traditional subjects, we convince them to take a step towards knowing their child’s favorite activity and start working on it.
KIDZOPEDIA is one such online platform which helps them identify the best after school learning courses and academies to broaden the spirit of their child in his / her favorite skills. It saves them from the hassle right from finding the reliable academy, choosing the relevant course to booking it for the child.
How does KIDZOPEDIA help parents: From bridging the gap to transforming the fragmented talent building academies sector, KIDZOPEDIA has brought all after school learning activities under one roof” Before the inception of KIDZOPEDIA, there was no single platform available in India where all the academies could get themselves registered. Even if there is an academy which is located and being operated from a small room but has the enthusiasm to bring out the best in a child, KIDZOPEDIA offers it’s listing support to them at a very nominal charge.
How did you plan this venture: I and My Life Partner is the co founder of KIDZOPEDIA. The idea to start KIDZOPEDIA came mutually when we both were looking for a nearest skating academy for our daughter. It was quite difficult to find it on internet as there was no such platform before KIDZOPEDIA’s existence to give detailed information about the academies located in a particular region. I and my co-founder possess a lot of similarities when it comes to working towards something with passion. We both put our 100% energy, integrity and thirst of knowledge to make KIDZOPEDIA, a marker leader.
