How Arcanys Early Learning Foundation Started: A Quick Background
Born in 2012, the Arcanys Early Learning Foundation (AELF) arose from Arcanys’ commitment to effect genuine societal change. It’s not just a program; it’s a movement. A movement aimed at empowering parents, providing free math coaching to children, and transforming the local community’s perspective on early education.

- The ChildUp Methodology: A research-backed card system enhancing real-world, positive parenting experiences.
Relevant Statistics: Facts and Figures
Arcanys Early Learning Foundation’s reach and impact are profound:
- Over 5,000 families have experienced the AELF program since its inception.
- 150,000 coaching sessions have been conducted, indicating the consistent and dedicated effort of the foundation.
An interesting statistical highlight stems from a partnership with the Chinese University of Hong-Kong: preschoolers with active parental support showed nearly double the improvement in number sense skills compared to their peers.
This significant improvement is a testament to the program’s efficiency and highlights the indispensable role of parental involvement. It underscores a crucial insight: when families and communities actively partake in children’s education, the outcomes are not just better but transformative.
