Mariana was a teen parent dropping out of high school. Kidango enrolled her young child in preschool, with free tuition. With the peace of mind that Kidango was caring for, nurturing, and educating her child, Mariana returned to school herself—graduating on time, continuing to college, and ultimately becoming an attorney.
With Kidango, Mariana found hope and opportunity for her child.
Purvi’s son has special needs. Here is her story: “My son’s communication skills have improved greatly because of Kidango. I always felt that from the moment I dropped him off to the moment I picked him up that he was in good hands. He was well taken care of, his needs were being met, and he was growing and learning constantly, which was huge. As a parent, you want your child to grow, succeed, learn and start hitting those milestones. As a parent who has a child with special needs, every little milestone is huge. And when they start meeting those, your heart starts beating a little faster and you celebrate and get excited. You know this is happening because of all the support he is getting. It’s been fantastic for us. I recommend Kidango without any hesitation. Kidango has been great for us– for my family and for my child. I think parents should really explore what Kidango can do for them!”
Kidango’s commitment is to ensure all children have access to the best opportunities for growth, focused on education and health.
