What makes the Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Lakeshore different?

Each classroom is designed with children in mind. Tempered glass walls surround each classroom from floor to ceiling, enabling children to see their surrounding environment. Each preschool classroom is equipped with a boy's and a girl's restroom as well as hand washing sinks for optimal convenience. The separated carpeted and tiled areas allow for creative play as well as group time activities with friends. Children need to run and play and we're aware of the benefits, both mentally and physically. You will find four separate playgrounds (with shade covers throughout) and even a water park! Our outdoor play areas are used for running, sliding, swinging and organized group games.  We do need to mention that safety is the number one rule, both inside and on the playground. Each staff member is trained in supervision, first aid and CPR. Kids R Kids International, researches and creates their own curriculum for preschool and school age children. Our curriculum philosophy is that children learn best through play. Jean Piaget, an esteemed psychologist learned that children understand concepts when they are introduced through social interaction with others in a structured environment. We know when a child experiences a concept; it is understood and therefore remembered. Each classroom is equipped with curriculum that is theme-based and covers all areas of learning to include: Artistic Creations, Blocks and building design, Dramatic Play, Library and Literature, Math and Table Activities, Music and Movement, Science and Discovery, Sand and Water, Writing Exploration, Outdoor Fun, (including rainy day activities), morning and afternoon group times, and of course, the Listening center. We are pleased to announce that our curriculum is now AdancED accredited! Daily Reports for infant, toddler, and preschool children describe your child's day, including meal times, nap times and other important classroom activities and announcements. Parents always enjoy this form of communication from our staff. Another way for parents to stay in touch with their child's day is by taking part in child/parent days at school. Throughout the year each classroom often invites parents to spend time in the classroom while the children show off what they have accomplished at school. Parents also enjoy the school's annual spring festivals, and holiday family meals! Kids R Kids wants parents to feel secure regarding the care of their children. Parents have the ability and pleasure of viewing their child from their personal computer at home or work by using a private password to gain entrance to our video camera system. Parents can observe their child in the classroom, the Kids Cafe, and at some locations on the playground. Seeing your child well cared for, as well as allowing close relatives to view your children, if you wish, speaks volumes about keeping family connections in tact.
