Curriculum

Give your child the gift of learning with Kids R Kids

 

Our unique curriculum sets Kids R Kids Schools apart from other centers and early childcare educators. Our full-time Education Department staffed with more than fifteen members at Kids R Kids Corporate Headquarters boasts over 150 years experience in classroom instruction, administrative assignments, and curriculum development. This impressive roster of educational credentials oversee every aspect of designing the most effective learning program possible. For a truly tailored approach to early childhood education, these highly qualified educators are always expanding our curriculum, which is unique and exclusive to Kids R Kids Learning Academies.

 

Our research-based curriculum, in combination with our deep understanding of the individual educational and emotional needs of each child, sets the Kids R Kids Curriculum apart. We allow children to learn in ways that are best for them and facilitate opportunities for optimal development. We help encourage good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves. The activities planned; the organization of the environment and the interactions with the children are all designed to give your child a solid foundation allowing them to be successful learners throughout life.  

 

 

The Kids R Kids Las Colinas curriculum was written to meet and exceed state and national standards and the accreditation standards of AdvancED (including SACS CITA, NCA CASI, and other related accrediting organizations) while continuing to promote the traditional philosophy of "when we play, we learn." Based on clearly defined expectations for child learning and promoting active involvement of children in the learning process, the curriculum provides instructional strategies, innovations, and activities that are based upon research and are reflective of best practice to facilitate achievement for all children. Written for multiple age groups (infants, toddlers, preschool, and pre-kindergarten), the curriculum includes experiences that meet children`s individual needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas; language, cognitive, physical, aesthetic, and social-emotional.

 

The Individual Aspect: Each child is viewed as a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth and development. Accommodations are suggested for children with special needs. The curriculum challenges each child to excel, reflects a commitment to equity, and demonstrates an
appreciation for diversity.

 

The Language Aspect: Infused with an abundance of activities to develop language and literacy through meaningful experiences, the curriculum provides opportunities for listening to and reading stories and poems, dictating stories, seeing print in use, participating in dramatic play and experiences requiring communication, talking informally with other children and adults, and experimenting with writing by drawing, copying, and inventing their own spelling.

 

The Cognitive Aspect: Learning about math, science, social studies, health, and other content areas is integrated through meaningful activities such as those in which children build with blocks; measure sand, water, or ingredients for cooking; observe changes in the environment; work with wood and tools; sort objects for a purpose; explore animals, plants, water, wheels, and gears; and draw, paint, and work with clay. While large and small instructional groupings are incorporated, play activities allow children to learn from self-directed problem solving and experimentation opportunities. Additionally, the curriculum incorporates instructional technology to support the curricular program.

 

The Physical Aspect: Outdoor activities are planned so children can develop gross motor skills as they learn about outdoor environments and express themselves freely. Children have daily opportunities to develop fine motor skills through play activities such as pegboards, puzzles, painting, cutting, and other similar experiences.


The Aesthetic Aspect: Children are given daily opportunities for expression and appreciation through art and are encouraged to experiment with and enjoy various forms of music.

 

The Social-Emotional Aspect: Children develop an understanding of concepts about themselves, others, and the world around them through observation, interaction with people and real objects, and seeking solutions to concrete problems. Interactions and activities are designed to develop children`s self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning. The curriculum also provides for active family involvement.

 

Fully aligned between all age levels of the school, the Kids R Kids Las Colinas curriculum provides for smooth transitions as children move up in age groups to help ensure that quality learning continues throughout the child`s Kids R Kids Las Colinas experience.
