The first few years of life are crucial for a child's cognitive, physical, intellectual, emotional, and social well being. The period from infancy to age six is the key to subsequent growth, development and ultimate productivity. Our Kids 'R' Kids Academies embrace the latest research on brain development and STEM, referring to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
