When establishing our first KIDS&Co. kindergartens and nurseries 15 years ago, our aim was to help parents combine two very important roles in their lives: that of a parent and an employee. That’s why we decided to open our facilities in the most convenient localizations, in the immediate vicinity of large workplaces.
As one of the first in Poland, we introduced bilingual education in preschools. For 14 years, we’ve been systematically building our original programme of emotional intelligence and social skills development. We teach children skills in the field of experimental sciences, coding, robotics and show them how they can creatively use state-of-the-art technologies. With this in mind, we seek cooperation with leading technology companies and our facilities offer cutting-edge learning materials as well as multimedia devices.
We currently run 4 campuses in Warsaw. The kindergardens & nurseries are open from early mornings till late afternoons.
Kids & Co is a Warsaw network of nurseries and kindergartens (which also offer the introductory primary school year, the so-called “zerowka”) that have been running for 15 years. It has five locations in the most dynamic business areas of Poland’s capital. They implement their own program focused on children’s well-being (including healthy nutrition), developing social and soft skills, and providing intensive teaching of English through immersion and the creative use of innovative technologies. Spanish is also introduced as tyhe third language. Our Kids & Co aims to develop bilingual children who will thrive in the 21st century. Kids & Co operates nurseries and kindergartens in many other locations all over Poland.

Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. "Pre-academic" skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different "stations" set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.
A school with a "supportive" academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, that the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a "rigorous" academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.
|Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation|
|Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties|
Formal adjustments are made to the delivery of lessons to help mitigate the learning difficulty or exceptionality. The underlying content and expectations remain unchanged with accommodations, however. (Example: allowing a student to write tests in a quieter room).
The underlying content and expectations are modified and/or simplified for the sake of the student. (Examples: allowing student to use a calculator on a test when other students can’t; allowing students to bring word-banks or “cheat sheets” into certain tests, etc)
