The Secret Agent Society Program is fun for kids
Learning Is Outrageously Fun

Content is taught in a way that is practical, well-sequenced, and at times, outrageously fun! New skills are practised with others using a variety of technology. What makes this course so special is that the secret agent theme helps your child take on the role of a detective to look for clues in how others speak and communicate.

Then, as secret agents, we use those clues to determine what others are trying to tell us and what they may be thinking. For example, your child can learn to use their ‘Detective’ skills to listen to the volume, speed and pitch of people’s voices during conversations. Then your child can interpret these clues to detect how the other person is feeling.
