Health and Fitness - Recent studies show that our society, through the comforts of technology and fast food, enables childhood obesity, which has reached epidemic proportions. Kids 'R' Kids knows how important physical activity is to any child's development, and that's why we include the Kids 'R' Kids Health and Fitness Challenge. Our unique Health and Fitness Program provides all the tools for kids of all ages to learn and enjoy how to be healthy. Throughout this curriculum we emphasize healthy bodies, the food pyramid, family-style dining, and physical fitness. We stress the importance of fair play, team cooperation, and physical well-being. In addition to our regular curriculum, we offer FunBus (a gymnastics program) and PlayBall (an introduction to a variety of sports) as optional extra-curricular activities.
Foreign Language - There's no better time to learn another language than during the early childhood years. In fact, a child's brain is designed to learn multiple languages. Spanish is a part of the curriculum for all of our preschool programs, and Sign Language is included in every classroom as well. Our students enjoy Mandarin Chinese classes twice each week as well, and are learning to read, write, and speak this language.
Music - Music is an incredible tool that enhances brain development. Our music programs expose children to a variety of musical styles and techniques while awakening their inner abilities. Children have the opportunity to play instruments, engage in singing activities, and compose their own musical masterpieces.
Chess Lessons - Chess is a fun, character building game that helps promote advanced learning and increase test scores in reading and math. Kids love this program because ChessAdventures has taken time to make sure our participants understand the importance of reasoning and taking the time to "Think before Your Move". This is not just on the chess board but in daily life. They encourage good choices and better decision making. This program is offered at a small extra fee for children ages 4 and older.
Computers - Knowing that our future continues to involve the technology of computers, Kids `R` Kids understands the importance of providing your child with the latest in electronic lessons and games to support the educational themes taught in school. We offer computers in all classrooms for children ages 3 and older.
Dance - Kids `R` Kids also offers a dance program for children ages 3 (by September 1) and up are able to participate in Pre-Dance III. Our children ages 4 (by September 1) and up can participate in a ballet/tap combination class. We have so much fun learning to dance and exercising our bodies to music! Children who are enrolled in this class need to be potty trained.
Swimming Lessons - Swimming Lessons will be offered twice each week during our Summer Camp Program. Kids `R` Kids will provide transportation to and from the Dynamo Swim Center for lessons, and our teachers will be poolside to provide additional supervision.
