From the Director:

"Our theme based, age appropriate curriculum in combination with our uniquely designed learning centers enable 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. "For the youngest children (infants and one-year-olds), the Active Learning Series, a well-known 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 them. 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. In addition to the core units, supplemental units are provided on a quarterly basis. Weekly lesson plans are posted to keep parents informed about their child�s learning experience at Kids 'R' Kids.
