Pedagogy for the future

 

Exceeding international standards

The future will belong to children who are creative, adaptive, curious and have an ongoing habit of learning. The Kïdo Early Years Program is created with the objective of nurturing and enhancing these innate abilities in children from a very young age. Drawn from years of research, and supported by internationally renowned experts, we have created a free and structured play based program that enables children to exceed standards of any school system in the world by the time they enter primary school.

The approach

Our program incorporates best practices from classical Western pedagogies (Montessori, Reggio Emilia and others), Eastern approaches, and latest research like Multiple Intelligences.

Project based learning, problem based learning and thinking based learning form the core of the teaching plans, and enable children to advance quickly across the spectrum of developmental goals. 

Key features

The Kïdo Early Years Program is a comprehensive curriculum covering twelve areas of development, with our proprietary physical development, math, literacy, art and STEM programs. We have also developed fully bilingual English / Mandarin and English / Spanish programs. Additional languages include Arabic and French.
