Vivide Mantero - School Founder (Italian)
Vivide founded KINS in 2010 in an effort to create a quality educational experience for her own daughter. Vivide envisioned a school community where local and expatriate children would feel safe and could come together to learn and play under the guidance of quality teachers. The dream was fully realized and the school continues to grow and thrive with Vivide’s original vision at its core.
