SEEDS of Learning

Preparing Every Child to Be Ready to Read and Ready for School Success.

Our mission at Kidango is to prepare children for success in school and life.  But this mission is not what makes us unique. Many school districts, preschools, and other educational organizations say something similar.  What makes Kidango unique is how we work to achieve this mission and how we prove it.


Language and Literacy: Our teachers use the research-based SEEDS (Sensitivity, Encouragement, Education, Development, Self-image)  of Learning language and literacy curriculum to help children learn essential skills proven to be the most successful at promoting reading proficiency. Our teachers receive training and coaching through SEEDS. This helps children explore and learn language and literacy skills, such as letter names, letter sounds, vocabulary, alliteration, and rhyming, in addition to weekly repeated book read-aloud and transition songs.

Early Math Skills:  Math Shelf is an evidence-based pre-k and Kindergarten tablet math learning program that helps children develop the early math skills necessary for transitional kindergarten and kindergarten. The curriculum uses research to help children learn math through play with concepts found in the California Preschool Learning Foundations and the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework. Math Shelf teaches children pre-math skills, counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, numbers, and operations in base ten, measurement, and geometry.  Math shelf also aligns with California Kindergarten (Common Core) math curriculum content standards. The Math Shelf program assesses children’s progress as they play games and master mathematic skills. It also gives regular reports to teachers to measure children’s growth and progress.


Curriculum Planning: Kidango’s teachers plan and create their curriculum integrated with a wide array of elements, including data drawn from family goals, the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP), Individual Growth and Development Indicators (IGDIs) rooted in the SEEDS framework, MathShelf, ASQ Plan of Action, and the unique interests of each individual child. This comprehensive approach ensures that the curriculum is tailored to the specific needs and developmental trajectories of every child in our care.
