We've made it simple for you to achieve the ONE THING you want for your child:

for them to become a happy, fulfilled, adventurous learner, brave enough to go through life being wonderfully, authentically THEM!


Because I’ll bet, like so many parents, you’ve:

  • Felt the negative impact of our old education system on your child, which has left them bored, disengaged and uninspired to learn.

  • Searched the internet endlessly trying to find the answers that resonate with you and no matter how many blogs you read, TED talks you watch, you are still left with the BIG question - BUT HOW DO I GET MY CHILD TO LOVE LEARNING?!

  • Wrestled with your child on a regular basis to get them through the school gates.

  • Grumbled at how impossible it is to get your child slightly interested in anything other than YouTube.
  • Been banging your head against the brick wall of our school system because they say you're child is 'doing fine', even though your child is telling you school is like being in prison everyday.
  • Felt an outsider to your family and friends, because they think you're crazy you think you could do a better job educating your child than school (but they haven't heard of Lights On®!).

  • Started to worry about your child's mental well-being, because surely this isn't how their lives should be for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 40 weeks of the year for at least 14 years!



What is going to happen to your child if you DON'T start thinking like an Explorium parent?


An Explorium parents thinks and acts differently so their child can too... 

  • Old school parents focus on academic success...Explorium parents value passion over grades.

  • Old school parents make sure their children avoid failure...Explorium parents make sure failure is an important part of their child's success.

  • Old school parents want their children to conform and play by the school rules...Explorium parents want their children to be individual and continually question.

  • Old school parents fit into the outdated school system...Explorium parents FLEX the system to work for their family's needs. 


We've done the hard work, research and design, so you can spend more quality time with your child getting them learning with their Lights On®, whilst being confident what you are doing WORKS.

After the initial six weeks, which are especially designed to get you taking effective action, we'll release new content each month to move you towards some deep learning for YOU and YOUR CHILD.  Every month we'll showcase a mini-project designed by one of our members, showing how it is underpinned by their growing understanding of our Lights On® framework.

Gain a deep understanding of the neuroscience behind learning so you can transform your child's mindset by shifting YOUR OWN!

The way your child thinks and acts about learning is a reflection of you in more ways than you think.  That means when you give up, they learn to give up! Sounds harsh but true. We will invest a lot of time bringing in mindset experts to make sure you are able to 'get out of your own way' so your child's genius can shine through. 

Lights On® is perfect for you if... 

  • You have a child who is bored, unhappy and demotivated with their learning at school.

  • Your child might be succeeding academically, but putting in minimal effort, and you feel they are not reaching their full learning potential.

  • Your child doesn't seem to engage in any of your ideas to enhance their child education and this is making you feel totally disempowered. 

Lights On® is also about  
YOU unleashing YOUR brilliance...


You want 2018 to be a year of taking action and no longer want to put up with a mediocre education for your child. 

You are ready for an exciting new learning adventure where your family will start to become calmer, happier and full of fun.

You are ready to feel rejuvenated and inspired, no longer willing to put up with the stress your child's current educational environment is causing.




The Learner

The Parent

The Principal


From Parent To Circus Director To Social Entrepreneur

My adventure began when my daughter began complaining her learning was 'fenced in' at school. At this point I was just a parent, like you, experiencing first hand the constraints of our education system. With my daughter's lights rapidly dimming, I knew I had to do something about it. 

Little did I know taking action would lead me on one of the most exciting adventures of my life.

My first steps were to start flexi-schooling. Then I began to volunteer closely with my daughter's school. It was after I led a team of 106 kids and parents to stage an award winning circus (which won the NCPTA Gold Star Award for changing the life of the school) that I knew there was no going back...

I was hooked by seeing our children's eyes light up as they were given the opportunity to embrace being wonderfully and authentically 'them'. 

As a parent that is surely all we want; our children to be happy. I've come to know that our children are happiest when they are empowered to lead their learning; when they can tap into their passions and develop their talents. When we get involved in making that happen for them our lights go on too.

So I hope you'll join me and start on your own Lights On® adventure from parent to __________ (You fill in the blank).

Here's to switching on some lights together!

"Absolutely love what you guys are doing. I'm finding my lights have been switched on with regards to my boys' learning, and education in general, and my relationship with them, as I help them navigate the often choppy waters of learning! "

Mum of two, age 11 & 14

"Your lights on® approach is fantastic. The more I get to know it the better, it is so useful AND interesting. Longer term, I am extremely interested in being involved in the extension of Explorium/Lights On®, local to me."

Mum of two, under 6

"After I had the first coaching call I was always going to carry on because it was just too invaluable not to. It's given us the opportunity to not have to stay with the system how it is and to make changes. I learned a lot from the first coaching call that opened up my eyes that my son can change his environment quickly. He got really excited by that prospect. "

Mum of two, age 12 & 14

"I was excited to find an organisation that shares many of the concerns I have with the way our education system is structured and one that offers a solution to attempt to combat these. I wanted to come up with a specific plan with enough structure that left a certain amount of freedom for my daughter to learn in an open-ended way. It has given me a number of activities for myself and family to do that is both helping to discover our starting point and the tools to move forward. It is great to have a community of like-minded people with the same goal. I feel that there is a whole community of people who are excited about finding our children's passions and encouraging them to flourish."

Mum of three, under 6

"The Lights On philosophy touches our beliefs and our experience and has allowed us to spend more time together without feeling guilty. Being part of the Lights On community has given us sense of not being alone in our situation and reassurance that the time our son spends with us, rather than being at school, is not wasted and support in understanding the real needs of our children. Who else, if not you, has a better chance of recognising your child’s talents and needs?"

Mum of two, under 6

"I wanted to gain an understanding of the Lights On approach to learning, with the viewpoint of seeing how I could incorporate this into my tutoring. I wanted to find a way to re-engage them and keep them passionate about the work they are doing. As a tutor, it has given me a more flexible and creative approach to take with my tutees. I have noticed that in the lesson both students were more focused. I would recommend Lights On to other parents definitely!"
