For the first time in the U.S., international preschool program Kïdo has launched a new virtual learning platform specific to distance learning needs and opportunities for ages 2-6, according to an Aug. 25 news release from the preschool program.

Called Kïdo Home, the program is designed to improve development and foster independent learning through online small-group classes led by trained and qualified instructors, according to the program’s website. The program will leverage resources from Kïdo’s Houston location, at 2329 Bissonnet St., which first opened to essential workers May 19 and then later to the broader community June 29.

Kïdo Home, adapted from the Kïdo Early Years Program, a blend of Waldorf Steiner, Reggio Emilia and Montessori methodologies, contains curated content that lends itself well to an online, interactive delivery, according to the program’s website.

Lessons are offered daily for two hours and will eventually include second language immersion with an average student-teacher class ratio of 1-8:1.

The cost to attend is $350 a month. To sign up, visit
