This has never been available to parents before.

Nested around your play area or nursery, it uses Natural Language Processing technology to analyse the quality of your child's play interactions, including how many words they hear and how engaged they are in the learning process.

These indicators are proven to predict their IQ and school readiness! 


Our companion app is there to guide you through your child's most formative, first years.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my data?

Our device monitors the sound environment around your child and uses our Natural Language Processing algorithm to analyze it for key development indicators.

You have the full control over the monitoring feature with a simple on/off button and can even schedule it to be active only at a specific time of the day. We are committed to guarding your privacy and safety, this is why the data collected by the device will be encrypted on our AWS server and will not be shared with third parties without consent. 

Do I need to attach sensors to my child?

There's no need for this! We designed our device based on multiple interviews with parents and visits to their homes. We found out that a passive and quiet device that seamlessly blends into your home environment and is controlled by the parent, is the best option. That's exactly what we created! It's also choke-free and does not have a digital screen to prevent potential distractions to your child.

What is the Learn-O-Meter?

We created the Learn-O-Meter based on decades of research studies into what are the earliest indicators of a child's IQ, emotional development, vocabulary size and school success later in life. It all goes back to the quality of parent-child iteractions and specifically the quantity and quality of language exposure.
