Zid Zid's journey began in 2017 with a challenge and a clear vision. Recognizing the vital role of top-notch enrichment programs in shaping young minds, our founders, Moulay Essakalli and Julie Klear Essakalli, set out to transform early childhood education.
Traditional enrichment methods often involved costly outsourcing, hiring specialized teachers, or the painstaking task of gathering materials in-house. These approaches, while well-meaning, have limitations that could affect children’s learning outcomes and school ranking.
Zid Zid was born as an innovative online enrichment platform solution, making it easier for teachers, administrators, and school owners to integrate high-quality enrichment programs effortlessly and affordably.
What is Zid Zid?
Zid Zid is an innovative online enrichment platform transforming early childhood learning. Our mission is to equip educators with the tools and confidence to offer outstanding enrichment programs for children aged 6 months to 6 years.
Teachers quickly embrace Zid Zid because it empowers them to seamlessly integrate enrichment resources into daily lessons, enhancing the educational journey. Think of Zid Zid as a comprehensive toolkit that will offload some of teachers’ planning responsibilities and inspire their practices through the use of teacher's tutorials, a vast library of creative activities, extensive vocabulary resources, creative story-telling, and original songs, all centered around play-based pedagogy.
We are committed to making enrichment accessible to every child, nurturing school readiness and a lifelong love for learning. Join us in redefining early childhood education with innovative teaching tools at Zid Zid.
