Kodo Kids

Kodo Kids is devoted to enriching the lives of children.  This is our mission, our livelihood and most of all, our passion! 

In today's world, children have less opportunity to think deeply and innovate creatively.  Experiences which cultivate these skills sets are largely absent in early education, at the age which these skills are most critical.  Kodo kids seeks to help provide these experiences through playful, open-ended products which promote intentional learning, investigative personalities and out of the box problem solving.  Through these experiences, the foundation for lifelong curiosity and development of the whole child is cultivated.

The Kodo Kids team puts the child first in everything we do.  We fully embrace and do not deviate from the philosophy of learning through relevant play experiences.  Children have an instinctual urge to explore and discover, which they achieve through play.  We strive to provide tools and resources for the Early Childhood Education classroom which cultivate the opportunity for kids to think deeply and creatively, and foster intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.

Over the years we have continuously expanded our offerings and improved our service to meet your changing needs. Today, the Discount School Supply website offers the most comprehensive presentation of our products in addition to a wide variety of content resources for teachers and parents.
