Kaleidoscope was founded by a career educator and new mom after recognizing the inequities in early childhood education and childcare. After completing the Tiny and Essential Fellowships with 4.0 Schools, Kaleidoscope launched a summer pilot in 2018 through the Summer Simulator program funded by New Schools Venture Fund. The program served a racially and socio-economically diverse group of children ages 3-4 and was met with 100% parent satisfaction. Measured by a nationally normed assessment screener for school readiness, 91% of our students improved in overall development.
Our first center will open in August 2022 at the redevelopment of Charity Hospital in downtown New Orleans. With over 11,000 square feet of custom designed space to facilitate exploration, open-ended play, and creativity, Kaleidoscope at Charity will set a new bar for early learning centers in the region. Kaleidoscope is for employers looking to add childcare as a benefit for working parents. Space is limited but still available. Contact us today.
