Our Curriculum & Programs

Our international team of experts has created a comprehensive pedagogy known as the Kido Early Years Program. This innovative system incorporates the best practices from teaching philosophies from around the world, such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia and the theory of Multiple Intelligences. The result is a play-based learning experience that combines child and teacher-led activities with free and structured play in inspirational settings. The program is customised to the developmental ability of each child. Our program adheres to the EYFS and incorporates proprietary STEM, Art, Literacy and Numeracy programs.

Who we teach

Our nursery program is split into four levels. While each level roughly corresponds to an age group, in practice, we usually move children to the next level when we feel they are ready.

How we teach

Weeks in Kido nurseries are divided into Skills Days and Explorer Days. Throughout the program we integrate project-based learning, and thinking-based learning into our approach.

Skills Days

Skills Days provide children the opportunity to delve into specific topics i.e Literacy, Maths, STEM, Arts and Crafts, Knowledge and Understanding of the world and many more through station-based focus activities.

Explorer Days

Children tackle child and adult-led projects, problem and enquiry-based learning programs, which integrate the knowledge they learn during the Skills Days. Over the course of six weeks, children will develop a project through arts and crafts, math, science, literacy, or music-related activities.

What we teach

Find out what your little ones will learn at our schools. The majority of our learning centers utilize KEYS, our proprietary curriculum.

Our exclusive English and literacy program

  • We use children’s literature to awaken a love of learning within our students at an early age.
  • We encourage inquisitiveness which helps develop learning tools both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Children give small presentations to the class to improve their self-confidence.
  • We provide children with the opportunity to mark-make and write the sounds they know - the first steps to children building on their abilities to write words, sentences and phrases.

How we integrate science, technology and coding

  • We develop our students’ hand-eye coordination through fun activities like stacking blocks or sticking things together.
  • We help our students understand the functionality of specific tools and materials through simple and fun challenges.
  • We use computer technology to improve literacy and vocabulary.
  • We give our students problem-solving tasks that require teamwork to overcome, to teach them how to evaluate situations.

A fun and engaging way to learn about maths

  • We introduce children to mathematical concepts at an early age and revisit them repeatedly through their levels.
  • Children enjoy math challenges and games designed to keep them engaged and motivated.
  • The challenges gradually become more and more complex as the children progress.
  • Our activities enable children to apply math to everyday life.

All of our schools feature one or more second languages

  • English is our main medium of teaching but we are very proud to offer Kido Children exposure to three additional languages: Spanish, French and Mandarin. 

  • Children have weekly classes in all languages to develop their ability to intake and process additional languages. 

  • We believe this will enable children to embrace additional languages more positively in later life.
