Our belief is that no learning environment can be too beautiful for children. To that end, we try and create the most beautiful nurseries wherever we are. We want children to refuse to leave the nursery once they set foot inside.
True to that spirit, Kido is situated in a beautifully repurposed church hall, with a significantly large outdoor play area and customised indoor learning spaces to support early childhood education for children from 3 months to 5 years.
Facilities also include a dedicated art studio located in our nature garden, an indoor play area for play and exploration, reading corners in every room and specific areas for role play, sensory development, drama, science and technology. The learning resources are hand picked from around the world to ensure the most state of the art learning environment in early education anywhere.
