About SKIDOS Vision, Mission & Culture

We want to build the world’s leading brand for developing 21st Century skills among families with kids. Our mission is to help kids become lifelong, confident and happy learners. We believe it is more important NOW than ever before for kids to be equipped with both fundamental academic skills (Literacy & Numeracy) & non-academic skills (e.g. Critical thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Information, Media & Tech literacy, Leadership & social skills, Initiative & Productivity). These skills are important for them to be well prepared for their adult life to achieve confidence, happiness & contentment while helping to advance the human race.
