early years, reimagined

Across the world, and here in Sheikh Zayed Road, we're creating magical spaces for children to learn, grow and thrive. Visit us and discover the Kido difference.

Early Years, Reimagined

Kido Sheikh Zayed Road

Located in 15,000 square feet of customized villa premises behind the Four Points Sheraton on Sheikh Zayed Road. The purpose-built nursery includes a huge outdoor play area, a swimming pool, an art studio, a sandpit, and hand-selected play equipment. There is a large indoor play area for physical and motor skills development when it’s too hot to play outside. We also feature a creative lab, where children explore dance, drama, music and free role play. The learning environment encompasses reading corners in every classroom, specific areas for role play, sensory development, and skills development, creative spaces and science, and tech corners.

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.

We can't express sufficient incredible things about kido SZR. My child has been going to since he was 14 months. The staff here are simply great incredibly adoring and mindful. My son Alexander just totally adores going to class every day. The class structure gives a feeling of solace and my child simply appears to flourish in their learning climate. Fondest on account of the Principal Mariam Jamil and the instructors Miss Brenda and Miss Leslie. God favor crafted by your hands.

We are extremely happy with this nursery, that we have experienced for the past 3 years (our daughter and son joined the full day program when they were 5 month-old) and would recommend it to any parent! The teachers are amazing, loving and really focus on the development of the kids' brains and social skills. We also highly appreciate the French and Arabic classes that are part of the program. The facility itself is very nice, with a great outdoor area.

Nassrine Benjamin, Parent

Our 3 year old is having so much fun and learning something new everyday at Kido. We are very pleased with the nursery and staff. The staff especially have been super supportive and the care and affection they have shown towards the kids is very comforting and reassuring. We know our kid is in a safe and happy environment and we thank Kido for all their efforts.

    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. 

    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.

    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.
