This is how Bezos chooses the preschool locations

According to Forbes, the Bezos Academy's curriculum is to teach children aged three to five years five days a week throughout the year. Des Moines was not chosen as the first location by chance. In the selection process, factors such as the income level of the population and the participation rate in social assistance programs were taken into account. Furthermore, it was determined which cities have particularly unfavorable conditions with regard to access to licensed childcare facilities and whether there are organizations in the vicinity that could support the care of preschools. All other locations should also be determined based on these criteria. This information is based on information published on the Bezos Day One Funds website.

Bezos Day One Fund

According to CNN Business, Bezos launched the so-called "Bezos Day One Fund" as early as 2018 in cooperation with his then spouse, MacKenzie Scott. Containing two billion US dollars, the Internet billionaire's fund comprises two sub-areas: the Day 1 Families Fund and the Day 1 Academies Fund. With funds from the Day 1 Families Fund, Bezos is already supporting institutions that campaign for homeless families; The Day 1 Academies Fund supports schools in low-income areas of the US.

Why Bezos cares about Montessori pedagogy

As Bezos explained in an interview with the magazine Montessori Life in 2000, he attended a Montessori school in Albuquerque, New Mexico when he was two years old. In schools of this type, teaching is based on the Montessori educational concept developed by Maria Montessori in 1907, which is based on practice-oriented, self-directed and independent learning. Bezos also adds that although he did not deal with the exact educational structures, he intuitively perceives them as positive when it comes to laying the foundation for a child's later life.
