The moment we had been waiting for finally arrived!

Square Panda celebrated its launch in India on February 19, 2019 at the Westin Hotel in Mumbai.

You may recall, dear reader, from our previous post, that while we are well-known across America, we have just opened our doors in India.

We introduced our amazing multisensory phonics learning system to India at the ‘Language, Literacy, and Early Childhood Education‘ event.

An audience comprised of the biggest names in education were left completely enthralled with the talks presented by our speakers…

especially when Guest of Honour Andre Agassi walked in.

Take a look…
