Kids ‘R’ Kids . . . The First Step to Higher Education™

Preschool is the next step on your child’s amazing journey toward higher learning and discovery. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Hixson, we help your child prepare for the future with our standards-based curriculum supporting personal development and growth. At Kids ‘R’ Kids, your child enjoys daily accomplishments, increased confidence and success.

The Kids ‘R’ Kids Preschool Program provides many opportunities to explore personal interests and talents. We help children learn to make new discoveries and do things on their own. With your preschooler in mind, our standards-based Preschool Curriculum is divided into weekly, theme-based units. We also introduce Words of the Week to develop character and strengthen the vocabulary. Our individual skills practice and group exercises complement overall growth and development. Our weekly Character Connections helps develop strong, positive character traits and boost your child’s self-esteem.

 

Growing Minds, Growing Up

In Preschool, the Kids ‘R’ Kids Curriculum shifts to accommodate a more planned structure. Our goal is to help prepare your child for the more demanding academic schedule 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
