Exclusive Brain Waves™ Curriculum
The first five years of your child’s life is a critical time when their brain is developing and brain cells are forming connections for learning and future success in school.
During these early years, the experiences and interactions your child has will determine which brain cells are activated and which ones are pruned away from lack of stimulation.
Your child’s learning environment has tremendous impact on brain development. At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we use strategies from our Brain Waves™ curriculum to support neural pathways for language, social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development during these critical years.
Brain Development the Kids ‘R’ Kids Way
Our philosophy is “Hug First, Then Teach” as we understand that secure and safe emotional attachment is vital for the growth and development of your child’s brain. Our classrooms are filled with stimulating materials that allow teachers to facilitate children’s exploration through sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch as these sensory experiences send information directly to the brain and form the platform for healthy brain growth.
We understand that each child is unique, so our teachers cater to different interests and learning
styles. From infancy, your child will be exposed to many forms of language (including sign-language),
and immersed in an environment rich in language and literacy. Our learning stations are filled with math
manipulatives, science elements, and stimulating visuals that support brain pathways for cognitive
development. Problem solving is considered one of the best ways to support brain development, so
our teachers conduct activities to help children explore cause and effect and employ questioning
strategies that promote higher level thinking.
Technology and the Brain
Technology is everywhere, so children need healthy exposure to be prepared for life in the
21st century. Research shows, however, that hours of exposure to digital technology can lead
to over stimulation of the brain, fatigue, and irritability. At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we take a balanced approach
to technology. Our curriculum has been integrated with ABCmouse, one of the latest early childhood
technology tools, to enhance learning. With the guidance of a teacher, children engage in digital activities
that build language, math, science, and fine motor skills.
Maximizing your Child’s Mental Capacity
We believe in a nurturing learning environment, hands-on play, and novel experiences that ignite your
child’s curiosity. With our exclusive Brain Waves™ curriculum and quality teachers, our goal is to provide
stimulating learning experiences that support brain development and maximize your child’s mental capacity.
