"You spend a few years learning to read and spend the rest of your life reading to learn."- ANDRE AGASSI

Our Story


Our story isn't about us at all. It's about you-the parents and educators of India.
You and your efforts to teach kids phonics and through that, the English language.
Well, we're here to make your life easier!

Our multisensory neuroscience research-based phonics learning system comes equipped with educational games to teach children many essential skills.

With a curriculum that has been specially adapted for Indian schools and children, we strive to empower beginner learners through phonics awareness.

How We Came About


Our story begins like so many others...with a dad and his daughter. Dad looked high and low for intensive learning material for his daughter, but couldn't find anything appropriate. So, he decided to develop some himself. And thus, Square Panda was born! Headquartered in the US, we have opened our doors in China and India.
