ToucanLearn children are celebrating their birthdays almost every day of the year - did you know that every day, 9 million people are celebrating their birthdays! At the moment there are only 17 days in the year with no ToucanLearn children celebrating a birthday at all! There's a famous mathematical conundrum (the Birthday Paradox) that shows that you only need a group of 23 people to have a 50% chance that two of those people will share a birthday. It seems counter-intuitive, and the maths is beyond preschool kids, so we won't demonstrate the proof here!

We have four extra special children who were born on 29th February, and the 15th May is our busiest day with 10 of our babies and toddlers sharing the same birthday. Every day, over 215,000 children are born in the world - but that doesn't detract from the fact that your own children's birthdays are the most special in the whole world!
