About Us

We know that it is not the strongest who survive, but those who are able to adapt best to their surroundings

From the initial idea to shaping the method

I still remember the thrill that opening my English school (English Study Centre) gave me when I was only twenty three. I was young but English had always been my passion, and teaching it was a good excuse for being able to practise it and continue widening my knowledge of the language.

At first, the school specialised in teenagers and adults but it didn't take long for me to realise that what the newspapers have been telling us for some time is right: despite the years students spend learning English, their average proficiency is extremely low. How disappointing! I was determined to keep my students from becoming part of these statistics, which confirmed the failure of the system and traditional teaching methods.

Natàlia Perarnau, founder of the Kids&Us Natural English method

That is why in the year 2000, after becoming a mum, I began to take an interest in the idea of linguistic stimulation from an early age. I wanted to give my daughter the best start in life and, naturally, this included learning English. Therefore, in the same year, I expanded the school facilities to enable teaching of children from the age of three. At that time, there was nothing on the market of any quality for my students and, watching how my daughter was learning English, I decided to develop and implement my own methodology in 2003: Kids&Us English for Little People.

After three years of testing, revising and perfecting the material and methodology in the Manresa school, I decided to offer it to other language schools throughout Catalonia. This meant that I was able to obtain funding to continue developing the method while ensuring its high level of quality.

In 2007, we began opening franchise schools called Kids&Us School of English. There are currently 486 schools in Spain, Andorra, Italy, France, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Japan and Morocco, and more than 150,000 children learning English using our methodology. I am constantly working on and developing new ideas to continue providing the best resources possible to all those people who have placed their trust in Kids&Us.


Our mission is to be a language-teaching company that is innovative, dynamic and committed to future generations.  Excellence must be the cornerstone of each and every one of the company processes to ensure that learning is effective.


We want to make it possible for children to learn languages using a fun and effective method, in order to build a better world in which communication is no longer a barrier. We are excited that the legacy we leave behind will help them achieve their aspirations, both on a personal and professional level.

The Kids&Us team

An excellent team is essential for educational projects in general. In our case, a team that is committed to the Kids&Us project is even more essential because we are investing in children's futures.

The Kids&Us team is one of the company's greatest assets and its ongoing commitment is reflected in everything we do.

All the Kids&Us staff have received comprehensive training to ensure that the service we offer is defined by its excellence. We are committed to ongoing and specific training for all our employees and we implement a system of internal audits which allows us to detect areas for improvement, with a single goal: excellence.

There are currently more than 150,000 children learning English with us.
