Genius Kids - Award Winning Accelerated Learning Franchise
"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." – Plutarch
At Genius Kids, we believe that education and learning is a lifetime journey. Education is not about learning facts but about learning how to think confidently and being able to express creatively without fear. It is about learning to act with purpose to make good choices. Education is a lifelong process and Genius Kids makes it fun, exciting and enriching by equipping the child with critical life skills of confidence, communication and love for learning, incorporating smart board interactive technology and public speaking.

Founded August 1, 2001, Genius Kids opened its first classroom in the Ardenwood Campus in Fremont, California with only 2 students under the guidance, passion & vision of the founder Rennu Dhillon. A pharmacist by education, with a Doctorate in Natural Sciences, and numerous specializations in Pubic Speaking, Etiqueet, Grooming & Learning Disabilities, Dhillon has spent several years training adults, marketing & recruiting. She was astounded at the lack of confidence & communication skills in candidates she would send for interviews. "On paper they had all the skills needed, but when it came to conducting a 1-1 interview or using interpersonal skills, it was shocking to see the lack of self-confidence", expressed Dhillon.
A brilliant academic student herself, Dhillon was raised in Kenya and United Kingdom, where focus is placed on early education. “I was shocked to see that formal education in the United States begins at age 5, & found the American elementary education not very challenging. I was introduced to drama, theatre & public speaking to me when I was 3 years old.” From her experience of struggling to find preschools that would give her own two daughters the strong foundation & education she had received herself, she felt there was a void in the preschools & after school programs for a well-rounded educational curriculum which would offer leadership development combined with fun academics.
