Our founder

It all began with a passion

Joy Tay started Fun with Abacus with the mission to use the abacus as a tool to introduce numbers and mathematics symbols to young children. With her substantial credentials and long-term experience in teaching pre-schoolers, Joy was in the perfect position to implement a tailor-made programme for children in Singapore.

Using her expertise as a certified Abacus Mental Arithmetic Trainer and her knowledge of the local education curriculum, Joy came up with the solution to help a child learn Mathematics during the challenging stages. She believes that a systematic structure in the teaching program not only help the child but also give parents and schools a firm foundation to assist in a child’s learning curve.

Joy also set out to select and engage a group of teachers who not only share her vision but also her mission to introduce the 9-beads Abacus to pre-schoolers and their parents.
