“Children naturally giggle and laugh ‘til their bellies ache. They instinctively desire to love and be loved, and to feel grounded and secure within themselves. They genuinely believe in all possibilities, and go wherever their unencumbered imaginations take them.

Yipadee supports these innate tendencies by encouraging and reinforcing them through fun performances, humourous books, and upbeat music.

The vision is to help all children flourish and grow knowing they are significant, individual, and capable; that their potential and dreams lie at a determined arm’s reach!”

With warmest regards and gratitude,
