About Us

In 1998, the original Kids World started as a family-owned program created by Gabriela Korn, a mom of 3, with the intent to encourage “learning through play.” It was also created to help promote social and emotional development for young children. In 2021, the school was then taken over by Gabriela’s oldest daughter Stephanie, who added another component to the curriculum to focus on Music, Art and STEM. Thereafter, Kids World 2 Inc. was born.

Kids World 2 has been featured on CBS’s “Live it Up! The Donna Drake Show”
