Austin, Texas, United States
River Place is our largest school yet, featuring 15,000 sq. ft. of space for kids to explore. The center is located in a scenic neighborhood, framed by steep hills and Lake Austin, with River Place Elementary School just a five-minute walk away.
We believe stunning learning environments create the right impetus for children to interact, play and learn. The result is a place where children, teachers and parents work together to build a community of inquiry between adults and children.
The school has twelve large rooms, two indoor play areas measuring 700 and 1400 sq. ft., a Community Library, and a room designated for nursing mothers. In addition to this, there are separate outdoor play areas dedicated to each age group. Great care has been taken in resourcing all areas; every aspect of our school is tied to developmental activities that are part of our programs.
The infant rooms are tailored specifically for them and are dedicated to 10 children per room. It features comfortable baby furniture, fun toys and resources for sensory, physical and cognitive development.
The Preschoolers have a much larger space, where they can run around and enjoy the multitude of activities available to them.
By blending the teachings of Reggio Emilia and Montessori, we have created an environment that sparks inquisitiveness throughout all stages of learning and development.
Kido has been amazing with our pre-schooler. We can tell she is learning something new every day. Communication is great via the Kido parent app. We came from a Montessori school prior and Kido seems to have a somewhat similar education philosophy, so our kid had no issue adjusting. When your child refuses to leave school, when you pick them up, you know they are doing something right! Everyone there is super sweet! We are very happy with them so far.Hsuu Vierling, Kido Austin
