Sawyer connects children, parents, and providers of the best enriching childhood experiences through a suite of industry-leading technology solutions with a goal to ensure every child has the opportunity to discover their own love of learning.
We empower small business owners, enterprise organizations, non-profits, and traditional educational institutions by providing business intelligence tools to drive decision making, and we’re helping parents navigate the intense, fragmented world of early childhood development by creating tools that help them balance and manage their children’s day-to-day lives.
We’re on a mission to change the way the world thinks about learning–that a great education isn’t just about high test scores or a flawless report card, it’s about building the capacity for discovery in our children through adventures that delight them today and prepare them for tomorrow.
