We believe that children have the right to an education. To do this, we use the Education for All framework of providing access, quality, and opportunity to education for all students, regardless of age, sex, race, religion and ability.
How it all began...
Kidsworld Integrated School started by providing early education services as a daycare center and was given a four star accreditation by the DSWD. Most of the preschool graduates continued on to Xavier, ICA, Poveda, La Salle, where they excelled in their studies. Upon graduation, some went to take up college in UP, Ateneo and DLSU to name a few.
With the demand for higher courses the Board agreed to build a new building at 223 Panganiban St., corner San Luis, Barangay Onse, still in the City of San Juan. It is located on a hill and therefore free from floods. Barangay Onse is a developing barangay in San Juan. It is also a historic site where the Katipuneros planned their revolution during the Spanish era.
The school is accessible through major points of the City. It is walking distance to the new San Juan City Hall in Pinaglabanan, and along Blumentritt St. near the Dominican College. Located in a 650 square meter property, the initial building has 6 airconditioned classrooms which can be adjusted depending on school activities. A room has been set aside for therapy and for music classes. A multi-purpose court serves as venue for physical education activities, snack and lunch area. The entire school building has been designed to be disable friendly from the classrooms to the toilet areas. The school is equipped with CCTV's and strong internet connectivity.
The school has developed a strong relationship with Barangay Onse and the local government of San Juan. The school head is an active leader of the San Juan Association of Private Schools (SAPRISA) and supporter of the girl scout movement.
