Our mission is to empower kids with the social and emotional competencies that are necessary for achievement and life-long success. We believe that kids "learn by doing" and create imaginative hands-on play that puts your child in control. And, our commitment is to deliver boxes that are delightfully fun and unexpected.
Hi, I’m Pamela. When I had the idea for Superpower Academy, I was working as a corporate attorney and renewable energy co-business owner and my husband was managing a busy dental practice.
After the birth of my second child, life became a sprint. When we managed to make time for our kids, we were too exhausted to come up with productive at-home activities. As I searched for commercial options, I didn’t like the dictatorial instructions and “right” answers that came with most. At the time, I was a fellow in an executive leadership program. Much of our work focused on competencies such as self awareness, emotional intelligence, risk-taking, resilience and empathy. Coincidentally, they are also fundamental for healthy child development.
Thanks so much for your support!
I’ve created Superpower Academy to give busy parents like you, a simple yet effective alternative to turning on the TV. Our activities are designed to promote social and emotional growth in kids.
