Who is Nido?

The Nido collection of early schools for children first opened in 2014 to provide families with a new standard of Early Childhood Education and Care. The word ‘Nido’ is Italian for ‘nest’ (pronounced neeh-doh) and was inspired by the educational project of Reggio Emilia' philosophy in which our services are founded on.
