About Us

Our pioneering group of educators was and is now composed of SPED tutors as well as allied medical professionals such as Psychologists, Occupational, Physical and ABA therapists from prestigious universities and institutions in the country. In 2006, the same year of its establishment, Winged Wonder initiated its comprehensive multisensory reading programme tailored for struggling learners, including children with neurological conditions such as Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Global Delay, and others. This initiative then paved the way for the creation of ‘Winged Wonder Reading’.

In 2007, Winged Wonder hosted its first Grand Annual Arts and Crafts event: ‘Creativity 101’. As a result of this event, a pioneering idea was conceived – the ‘Arts Around the World’ programme. This programme combines the teaching of history, culture, and the arts.

Winged Wonder also hosted a range of seminars on Applied Behaviour Analysis as a commitment to continually enhance the levels of competence of its professional team. Today, Winged Wonder has diversified into various services such as Social Skills Training and a Critical Thinking Program revolving around the basic tenets of Applied Behavior Analysis.

In 2014, Winged Wonder expanded its reach by establishing its first campus in the South, conveniently located along Civic Drive in Filinvest Alabang. Additionally, in 2017, it inaugurated the Christ Church building, a modern, fully equipped 4-story campus situated in the heart of Makati’s central business district. This state-of-the-art facility boasts a comprehensive range of amenities, including, A.C.E. room, Learning Centre room, mini library, conference rooms, administrative offices, pantry and baking area, multi-purpose hall, science laboratory, and a gross motor area at the top floor. The building is also fully equipped with CCTV surveillance for added security.

Winged Wonder has grown extensively and is continually expanding its market base while simultaneously enhancing its educational facilities, services and programmes on a par with global standards.
