Preschoolers

At Kids R Kids, we know that your child is the future.  Our educational programs will have a positive effect on your child`s academic performance.  Preschoolers like to learn through self-directed experiences.  Throughout the day, children will have the opportunity to explore the classroom`s learning centers: Art, Blocks, Library, Dramatic Play, Math/Manipulatives, and Science.  Children benefit greatly from having these clearly defined interest areas that are arranged to promote independence, foster decision-making, and encourage hands-on involvement.  Each learning center enhances the child`s core components of development. Lessons plans, thematic units and age approprate learning centers address those core components needed for your child`s development. 

 

Our standards-based Preschool Curriculum is divided into weekly, theme-based units. We introduce Words of the Week to strengthen and increase vocabularies and develop character. Group exercises, as well as individual skills practice, complement your child's developmental growth and provide him with many opportunities to explore his personal interests.  Weekly Character Connections develop strong, positive character traits and boost self-esteem in every child.

  

Growing Minds, Growing Up

As children enter preschool, the Kids 'R' Kids Curriculum shifts to accommodate a more planned structure, preparing preschoolers for the academic schedules they'll soon find in elementary school.

 

The Preschool Curriculum includes:

  • Child-directed learning which allows preschoolers to process and self-regulate their own decisions
  • Language, physical, and cognitive development that focuses on learning curves needed for developmental milestones
  • Small group activities that are planned for every child throughout each day
  • Literacy and writing activities which are age-appropriate and provided daily
  • Activities and music to balance learning and fun
  • Emotional and social development with peers and teachers
  • Planned outdoor activities that promote physical fitness and development
  • Daily enrichment activities to encourage imaginative and creative play
  • Progress reports that inform parents of children's daily accomplishments
  • Decision-making skills to support growing minds

  

Our Advanced Approach

Each day at Kids `R` Kids, children spend their time exploring, learning, and accomplishing new skills. The value of "playtime" should not be underestimated in a preschool learning environment. Kids `R` Kids, through decades of working with and observing children, understands that as children work and play in well-designed learning stations, they learn to make good choices because there is purpose in their play.

Your child learns critical developmental skills throughout each of our learning stations. Here are just a few examples of what each learning station offers your preschool child:

  • Construction Station - Architecture, vocabulary, eye-hand coordination and cooperation
  • Imagination Station - Social skills, self-confidence and respect
  • Library and Literature Station - Listening skills, word recognition and oral language skills
  • Writing Station - Eye-hand coordination, name recognition and self-expression
  • Exploration Station - Classification, problem-solving and sequencing
  • Discovery Station - Experimentation, exploration and prediction
  • Sensory Station - Fine-motor skills, measuring and creativity
  • Music and Movement Station - Listening, teamwork and patterning

 

As Preschool children grow through our curriculum, Kids 'R' Kids keeps in mind the essential “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy. Preschoolers need encouragement and praise as they learn to share, problem-solve, and respect their parents, teachers and peers. That's just another reason why a solid foundation, beginning with a loving environment, is essential for every child's success.
