Early Years, Reimagined

Kido Camden

Your children can run, explore and feel completely at home in our bright and airy Camden branch. The mezzanine floor is devoted to pre-schoolers, while the ground floor includes two toddler rooms and a dedicated babies room. The large stained-glass windows flood the Montessori-inspired classrooms with light. The nursery has a large garden and the school is also just a five-minute walk from a large public park.

By parents, for parents

We are owned and operated by a group of parents from all over the world. We were set up in response to our founders’ struggles as young parents in different cities around the world. So, since our first school in Hong Kong in 2014, we’ve been obsessed with two things: improving learning outcomes for children, and our service to parents.

Although some activities can't be carried out due to the current pandemic, Kido ensures our daughter has her day full of sensory play, learning activities and social interactions. The baby room staff is outstanding, they all love our daughter so much and she loves them. At pick-up she is always giving cuddles and smiling. We also enjoy the live updates via the app and the varied menu during the week. It is comforting to know she is at Kido while we are at work.

A wonderful nursery and place for your child to learn and grow with an absolute peace of mind. Our daughter has been at Kido Camden since she was six months old and as a family, we have thoroughly enjoyed our daughter's placement and this beautiful nursery. The care and attention is obvious and second to none from the moment we were shown around to today. The staff is wonderful, polite, attentive, and engaging, picking our daughter up to learn of her day's activities is always exciting. Kido Camden is everything we would want and more as a nursery for our daughter.

Andrew P, Parent

Since starting at Kido Camden, my child has come through leaps and bounds. He’s super happy here and the activities are always age-appropriate. We are always in communication with the staff members, they always send photo updates and always happy and super friendly. The garden space is good and has different areas for them to play in. Will definitely be recommending to others.

    Kido's COVID Response

    In line with the current government guidance, Kido nurseries remain open. We continually adhere to best practices around enhanced cleaning, social distancing, the regular taking of temperatures and maintenance of strict bubbles to limit disruptions in the event of a COVID-19 case. Out of hours tours remain available throughout the week.

    Our philosophy

    The nursery is inspired by Reggio Emilia’s philosophy. Children have the space to find something that encourages them to discover, play and learn in every corner.

    We believe that a combination of free and structured play, an engaging and interactive learning environment, and an abundance of love, care and attention provide the most solid foundation for children in the early years.

    Food & Nutrition

    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.

     
    Our People

    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.

    Parent Communication

    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.
