Kido Rice Village Infant Center is our first dedicated infant center in the US. We are located in the heart of Rice Village, within ten minutes of Rice University, West U, the Medical Center, Upper Kirby, and River Oaks.
The 2000 sq. ft building is purpose-built for children under eighteen months, where we provide daily sensory activities to help aid in physical and cognitive development. The furniture and resources have been handpicked so that the entire center is conducive to age-appropriate learning. The Infant Center includes dedicated indoor and outdoor play areas where the infants can explore, build strength, and express themselves. As with all our Houston Kido schools, the Infant Center is a Spanish immersion program that exposes our youngest students to the Spanish language so that they will be prepared when they enter the Kido Rice Village Main Campus.
We absolutely love Kido! Our daughter has been going to Kido since she was three months old and is about to turn one next month. She literally jumps into the arms of the teachers every morning we drop her off. The staff is super responsive to questions and it is so nice that they are able to send photos throughout the day. We are very grateful for Kido and highly recommend this daycare!
Your little one needs lots of energy to learn and play. Our healthy, nutritious meals will make sure they've got plenty. We serve breakfast, lunch and a healthy snack too. We also have vegetarian options and are happy to chat about any specific dietary requirements your child might have.
All of our teachers are formally educated and have a wealth of experience in the childcare industry and a genuine passion for teaching children. We put our heart into it and welcome teachers from different nationalities and cultures. This along with the 100 hours internal training is all to ensure we give your child the very best learning and development experience while they're in our care.
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.
You won't miss a moment of their development. Through our app for parents, you'll get regular updates, pictures and communication from your child's teacher throughout the day. Also during pick-up and drop-off we'll be sure to talk through anything you need to know and answer any of your questions.
Currently, our schools offer lunch and snacks as part of our tuition.
You can book a tour by filling out an interest form on our website or contacting the school directly.
