Our theme-based, age-appropriate curriculum, in combination with our uniquely designed learning centers, enables your child to master “Core Components” needed for early development. The Kids 'R' Kids curriculum provides teachers with themes and sample lesson plans. According to NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children), a child has five core components of development: socio-emotional, language, cognitive, physical, and aesthetic. The Kids `R` Kids curriculum includes all five components in our lessons.
For the youngest children (infants and one-year-olds), our curriculum has proven to be a successful learning tool. All activities are age-appropriate and assist in achieving developmental milestones. Activities are carefully chosen to meet the needs of each child. In order for parents to extend learning in the home, daily activities are posted in the classroom for review. Sign language is introduced at this level to help children communicate their needs as they work toward developing their verbal skills. In our clean, child-centered environment, each child is given plenty of attention, thus promoting ultimate mental and physical growth.
For our preschoolers, ages 2 - 4, Kids 'R' Kids offers a core curriculum comprised of weekly units that support and extend monthly themes. Each unit is filled with activities designed to meet the needs of all types of learners. Daily group times and enrichments are designed to expand a child's vocabulary and knowledge of the world around him. Various activities at each learning station support the theme-based lesson. Kids 'R' Kids also enriches its curriculum through music, which is professionally written and recorded to reinforce concepts. Weekly lesson plans are posted to keep parents informed about their child's learning experience at Kids 'R' Kids.
Children attending kindergarten through fifth grade benefit from a variety of curriculum materials written especially for after-school hours, holiday breaks and summer camp. Idea calendars with relevant daily activities are provided. These calendars encourage children to initiate activities with the support of the teacher. They are designed to be open-ended to inspire children to use their creativity while exploring the topic. The activities include group time topics, art activities, and suggestions to enrich classroom zones. Time spent in the Nova, Media, Discovery, Construction, and Open Air Zones provides children with the opportunity to explore themes in a wide variety of ways. Children involved in the Kids 'R' Kids Summer Program have the opportunity to take a virtual vacation to many fascinating places while learning fun facts and interesting information about our country and the world.
By providing an educational environment, Kids 'R' Kids is able to implement learning objectives supported by national teacher organizations. By creating a warm, loving atmosphere, Kids 'R' Kids is able to support learning in a safe setting, inspiring children to become life-long learners.
