# What is Zid Zid?
Zid Zid is the first online toolkit that empowers ECE teachers and caregivers to teach enrichment programs confidently. It also supports school administrators by improving educator practices, increasing enrollment, retaining teachers, and engaging learners aged 6 months to 6 years old.
# Do teachers have to be experts in these topics?
Classroom teachers and caregivers don’t need to be experts in any of the programs we offer. Our simple video tutorials and unlimited play-based resources will guide them to become familiar with the basics and beyond.
# How is Zid Zid meant to be implemented?
Our programs are non-linear. We estimate it takes up to one month per Quest. Please work at your own pace; there is no rush in learning! You can plan on using Zid Zid daily in small doses, at circle time, in morning meetings, at transition moments, or in more extended activity sessions that can last anywhere from 20-60 minutes. Go deep on one Quest or cross-reference various Quests based on your teaching goals.
# Do I need to follow Zid Zid activities?
Our activities are designed based on best practices to serve you and your preschoolers. We know you are the expert in your classroom. Please use Zid Zid as a starting point, an inspiration, and a foundation from which you can apply your voice and creativity. Innovate, improve, and, most importantly, do what feels best for you and your students!
# What ages are best for these programs?
Our programs are designed for children aged 6 months to 6 years, with a sweet spot between 3 to 6 years. We also provide guidelines on how to adapt the programs for younger children.
# Do I have to use screens in my classroom?
No, Zid Zid does not require screens in your classroom. Our approach to enrichment programs leverages technology to deliver content to both teachers and parents. While we provide digital resources, our materials are printable, and the audio components can be played without the need for screens. The visuals we offer are designed to enhance the overall learning experience, providing flexibility to adapt to different classroom settings and philosophies.
# What is the training like?
Our training includes easy-to-follow videos, user-friendly resources, practical tips, and valuable recommendations to boost teacher involvement and simplify implementation. Educators can learn at their own pace and access the training whenever needed. Additionally, we offer live group training via Zoom upon request.
# Can Zid Zid be used in aftercare programs?
Certainly! Zid Zid is a valuable addition to both established and new aftercare programs. The play-based resources simplify aftercare teachers' roles and enhance your school's appeal and reputation.
