- What kind of education can Happy Louis™ offer our precious children around the world ?
We at Happy Louis™ believe every child should learn etiquite, a quality that will prove to be invaluable
in their lives.
Though the world is becoming increasingly standardised, there still remains cultural and educational differences and with all our technological and transportion advances, this world and all it’s beauty along
with its varying cultures will become so accessible to our children as they journey through their lives.
Educating children from an early age on the basic rules of life is essential in ensuring a harmonious adaptation in our ever increasing multicultural environment.
We believe that “Elegance is an attitude”. It is imperative we offer our children the best possible education allowing them to integrate pleasantly using their learned rules of etiquette in any multicultural scenario
they may encounter. We offer lessons in moral values including courage, forgiveness, friendship, respect
and openness to the values of other cultures around the world.
- How do we impart these values and cultural awareness to our children?
We believe books are an integral aspect in the communication between a child and an adult.
We are in a time where computers and electronic tablets are so prevalent in our lives and although they are very helpful tools, there remains no substitute for the genuine bond of communication established through
an adult reading audibly together with a child, we believe it remains the most effective initial mode
Through the use of books demonstrating joyful stories coupled with life lessons, both the child and the parent will gain a whole-hearted educational experience.
Happy Louis being the main character and the choice of creating an array of various animal characters
with diverse cultural backgrounds is sure to appeal to our children and gain their interest as they learn
about cultural differences from around the world and the need for mutual respect.
Paris, a city well known for its decorum and an arena for dreams has been chosen as the main setting
for the adventures and stories of Happy Louis and friends.
