1. The Child is Father to the Man
Interestingly, there is a similar saying by the Confucius, who said “from a 3 years old we see the grown-up”. It remarkably coincides with the latest brain science, which tells us that the life-long achievement builds on early foundations, as the brain wires up and grows to 80% of maturity before the child is 5 years old.
2. The Hands Are the Instruments of Man’s Intelligence
Just as our logo which is a child’s hand-print, we believe building our own future through doing. Thus, creating an environment for children to mobilize their senses, to explore and to experiment using their hands is a philosophy implemented in every age segment of VINCI program
3. Excellence Is An Act of Habit
Once a child experiences excellence, he will never accept mediocrity. The excellence, however, is not about being the best, but about being better than self. Helping young children to build that habit of pursuing the excellence is to equip them for a life-long journey of innovation.
STEAM – Science Technology Engineering Art Math powers the 21st century’s economy. Young children are born scientists and explorers. Research shows 5 month old babies can distinguish quantities. So there is no reason why a 6 year old can’t build a bridge or design an invention.
5. None of Us Is As Smart As All of Us
Collaboration is one of the critical skills for anybody who wants to succeed in today’s global economy. It also implies the respect for differences, and the innovation beyond cultural barrier.

Meet the Founder
After a successful career as teacher, scientist, and entrepreneur in the fiber networking industry, inspired by her then-toddler daughter who was addicted to her iPad, Dr. Yang created VINCI Education to transform how young children are educated.
The idea is simple: if young children love mobile devices, instead of fighting against their will, we might as well create a learning structure, based on brain science and academic standards, so that the games – the lessons can be inter-connected with traditional teaching.
Guided by a world class cognitive scientists such as Professor George E. Forman of UMass (Amherst), Professor Tricia Striano of Hunter College (New York), and incorporating systematic series of actions to advance children on the learning ladder, VINCI game-based Curriculum was born.
