    A few months after a beautiful baby is born, parents begin to hear exciting sounds of joy and personal expression. A toddler’s use of words can be adorable and entertaining as your child learns to use new words and communicate. While it’s entertaining to watch a growing toddler use a variation of a word, as a child enters preschool the vocabulary is expected to increase. Better communication and increased vocabulary does not happen automatically. It requires intentional learning and an excellent curriculum in childcare, daycare, or preschool. Parental support is also beneficial. Learning happens in a balanced, loving, and nurturing environment.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we understand every stage of learning. Our curriculum is designed to help your child develop through our infant, and toddler programs, to our preschool, pre-k, and after school programs. At Kids ‘R’ Kids, children enjoy lessons designed to increase vocabulary, build better communication, and much more!

    We understand the commitment of our parents to complement the learning experience at home. Here are some helpful ways to build your child’s vocabulary through everyday activities at home.

    Be a careful listener. It may take time for your child to express himself. Listen carefully and allow your child to take the needed time to communicate.

    When speaking to your child, use real words. It may be fun to use “play words,” but as your child learns and grows, take the opportunity to use real words for your child to repeat and understand. While some “play words” are cute, they can be confusing and stifle vocabulary.

    Ask plenty of probing questions. Your questions will create opportunities for your child to think, reason, and express himself better.

    Encourage your child regularly. Always look for opportunities to affirm and encourage your child. Respond with care and thoughtfulness as your child learns to express thoughts and feelings.

    Keep your baby talking and making sounds. Your baby is growing and developing in many ways. Engaging activities, talking, and fun interactions are ways your child learns and develops. Even though your baby may not understand your words, he will recognize your voice and body language.

    Read to your child regularly. Choose a fun book appropriate for your child’s age and read regularly. Your child will begin to recognize and repeat words. Also discuss what the words mean.

    While Kids ‘R’ Kids provides an excellent preschool learning experience, parents love to join the learning process. These simple steps will support your child’s learning along with our excellent curriculum. Our STEAM AHEAD® curriculum is an integrated project-based curriculum written for students ages three to five, providing them with opportunities to be creative, innovative, and ingenious—learning to use problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, and best of all, finding the “ah ha” moments in our five core areas of education.

    Learn more about the many ways we support your child, with our dynamic curriculum, excellent programs, and qualified teachers and staff. We hope you will contact us to learn more about our commitment to advanced learning, increased vocabulary, and our overall educational success that is far beyond a daycare or childcare.

    We work with the interactive technology that today’s children need to experience. We’re believers in the appropriate use of technology – utilizing creative computer applications and other innovations to help your child grow – in keeping with the technologies he will need to understand for future success. Our technology-based learning activities are developed with your child in mind and extend beyond the boundaries of traditional daycare.

    Combining the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer and the Corporate Accredited Program, our highly trained teachers engage students with hands-on interaction. This educational system utilizes an easy to use, interactive technology that provides children the ability to interact with large, colorful, moveable images and diagrams. Moving letters, words, numbers and pictures with a finger, and with the addition of sound, makes the lessons engaging for auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners.

    The Kids ‘R’ Kids accredited program is utilizing this technology and implementing our exclusive curriculum into activities that are tied to national Preschool standards and the critical skill areas of pre literacy, language, math, social studies and science.

    Teachers implement the weekly curriculum and select the appropriate developmental level for a group of children or an individual child. Daily lesson plans and activities are implemented for large or small groups as well as independently by children during center time.

    The individual Computer Learning Centers also utilize the latest multi-touch screen technology and educational software for development in a safe, child-directed learning environment.

    One of the most powerful and exciting features is the ability to easily create digital student portfolios. Each child’s individual work and progress is captured in a dynamic portfolio allowing the teacher to easily add notes and share with the child and with parents at anytime throughout the year.
