About the company

Kidato is an innovative online K12 school that provides personalized education for learners. Through its virtual learning platform, Kidato offers a comprehensive curriculum tailored to each student's individual needs and learning pace.

The education sector in Africa faces significant challenges, particularly in access, quality, and relevance. Outdated and inadequate curriculums, insufficient resources, and student-teacher ratios as high as 50:1. These have contributed to low learning outcomes, resulting in a skills gap that hinders Africa's economic and social development. Kidato designed its online platform to address these challenges by providing a high-quality, convenient, and affordable online K-12 education. It leverages technology to enhance the learning experience for African students by offering a 1:8 teacher-to-student ratio, well-trained teachers, full-time learning broken into 45-minute classes, and diaries and assignments at the end of every lesson
