Begin, the company behind early learning programs, Homer and CodeSpark Academy, has acquired KidPass, a marketplace for parents to discover and book kids activities, including in-person and online classes and tutoring.
“We’re thrilled to welcome KidPass to the Homer family,” said Neal Shenoy, CEO and co-founder of Begin. “This acquisition allows Homer to curate and deliver premium memberships based on specific learning outcomes. Learning through digital apps, physical play, and in-person experiences all play critical roles in a child’s learning journey and with this acquisition, we’re able to meet children and families every step of the way.”
“For so many families, the pandemic accelerated the adoption of new learning technologies and proved that kids learn in a variety of ways. The future of education will be multi-format, multi-channel, and personalized learning,” said Solomon Liou, co-founder and CEO of KidPass. “In Homer, we not only found a partner that is aligned to that vision but one that is well on their way to building it.”
