The aim of our software is to create a space where children can learn while being creative, using the technology and tools they will have to use for the rest of their lives. We take difficult concepts and make them accessible to children of all abilities.
We are dedicated to making educational software that raises standards, enhances the learning experience, and saves teachers’ time.
In 1999 we released the Infant Video Toolkit, a child-friendly office suite for desktop publishing, painting,graphing and coding. Today over 90% of UK primary schools use 2Simple software and our tools are used by teachers and students in over 64 Countries, including South Africa, India, The UAE, Australia and the USA.

We employ our creativity to make things better. We embrace change and don’t fear taking calculated risks in order to improve and grow.
We are interested and inquisitive. We find and solve problems. We ask questions and question things around us. We listen. We are the lifelong learners we seek to inspire.
