Why the name 'Skill Neurons'?

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

When we founded our company, we knew we wanted a name that reflected our passion & mission of helping everyone, especially children, build essential life skills from an early age. We brainstormed many ideas, searching for the perfect name that would capture the essence of what we do. After much deliberation, we finally settled on 'Skill Neurons', a name that perfectly captures our purpose.

Many friends curiously asked us, "What does this mean?" and "How does this name relate to building life skills?". So, we decided to write our first blog post about it and share the inspiration behind our name and how it relates to our work.

So, what does 'Skill Neurons' actually mean? Simply put, it combines two words: 'Skill' and 'Neurons.' But how do they relate?

First, let's talk about 'Neurons'. Neurons are specialised cells in our brains that communicate with each other to allow us to think, feel, and move. They are like tiny electrical wires that help our brain process information and form connections between various parts of the brain.


Our brain is a complex organ. It's constantly growing and changing based on the various activities we engage in daily, and research shows that our brain can rewire itself in response to new experiences and learning.

We firmly believe life skills are crucial for success in the 21st century. They help us navigate challenges and opportunities and prepare our children and us for the rapidly changing world.

So, when we practice life skills such as self-awareness, mindfulness, self-management, communication, and critical thinking, our brain forms new connections and strengthens existing ones. These connections enable us to learn, adapt, and grow throughout our life.

The more we engage in activities that build essential life skills, the more our neurons rewire to support them. That is where the concept of 'Skill Neurons' comes in. Our company is focused on helping children develop these essential life skills through exciting games and activities. Our tagline, 'Playway ~ Brain Rewiring Tools,' reflects our belief in the power of play to change the brain. Skill Neurons' games aim to provide a fun and interactive way for everyone to reinforce life skills and become confident, well-rounded individuals. Through thought-provoking questions, calming and movement activities, and fun challenges, your child can strengthen the connections between the neurons in their brain. We assure you, this will lead to lasting changes in their thinking and behaviour.

For example, our 'Know Thy Self ' helps with self-discovery and improves self-awareness. At the same time, 'Mindful ME ' teaches us various breathing & relaxation techniques. Our games are designed to be easy to understand and fun to play, so your child can enjoy learning and developing new skills along with it.

So, when you see the name 'Skill Neurons,' we hope it conveys our passion and mission for building essential life skills through rewiring the brain.
