What Inspires Us

HiMama is based on extensive research and interviews with early childhood educators. We have learned a lot about early childhood education since we originally came together in 2012. However, the following learnings are what motivate and inspire us to always be better and do better:

  1. The formative years from age 0 to 5 are critical to a child’s life-long development and most people are unaware of this well-researched fact

  2. The resources invested in early childhood education do not align to the importance of a child’s development (see learning 1 above)

  3. The role of the early childhood educator is highly under-appreciated (see learning 1 above) and extremely challenging (see learning 2 above)

Our goal is to empower early childhood educators with affordable tools that enable them to improve developmental outcomes for the children they work with while educating parents about the importance of their work.

Who We Are

HiMama is made up of a group of committed fathers, mothers, daughters, sons, uncles and aunts who are working hard to build a product and a company that families and early childhood educators love. We are a Certified B Corporation® which means that we meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability as part of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The B stands for B the Change, inspired by Gandhi’s famous invocation that we must be the change that we seek in the world, and when we think about the world that we want today’s youngest children to grow and thrive in, we want to do our part to make that world a better place.
