Kide Science has agreed to launch in Minnesota with Kinderberry Hill Child Development Centers, which has over 30 years of experience providing a unique, child-led learning environment. The program is expected to start in early 2021.
"We have stayed true to our mission of continuous improvement by evolving throughout the years. Best practices, new initiatives, and what is best for children is always at the heart of what we do. That is why we are delighted to start with this research-based and award-winning Kide Science program," says Lisa Swan, Director of Operations at Kinderberry Hill.
Kide Science supports teachers with online training, lesson plans and engagement for families to continue science education at home. With holistic support, teachers can focus on working with the children to provide wondrous hands-on science experiences, even remotely or in a hybrid model during the school closures.
CEO of Kide Science, Sari Hurme-Mehtälä says: "These unknown and changing learning situations are challenging for everyone. That is why we are so happy to provide support for experienced teachers in Kinderberry Hill. Our science lessons are designed to keep students interested and engaged, even remotely. Our lesson content stays the same, whether it is done in-person or at home. This supports not only a hybrid learning model but provides consistency when the learning environment shifts during the pandemic."
