How will teachers benefit:

Due to the immense range of tasks and challenges available on the app the use for teachers of very young children is vast. It can be used as part of brain breaks between scheduled nap and play times and more loosely as part of unstructured time to further develop strong brain connections.

Further to this, completion of tasks will help the relationships between parent and child to be built on a positive and educationally sound foundation. Seeing the improvements made in the child’s development is encouraging and additive and will support the parent in a difficult to navigate area of child development.

Oliiki can improve on:

The exhaustive collection of tasks available on the app ensure that there is always a new and impactful task to complete, suitable to each stage of pregnancy or infancy. The price for this, however, is on the steep end for what is a collation of information for parents to then self-direct.

How much does Oliiki cost:

Oliiki is initially free to download, then the app is £4.99 per month or £94.99 for a one of subscription that last a life time – useful if the user is likely to have more than one child, or works in an educational setting with many infants.
