Our Philosophy We believe that happy, loved and connected children are destined for success in every face of their lives. http://www.krkchampions.com/ “HUG FIRST, THEN TEACH” Our most cherished principle, “Hug First, Then Teach,” defines every aspect of who we are at Kids ‘R’ Kids. Unlike many daycare centers or childcare providers, our approach is a whole child approach, working to strengthen and encourage every child’s emotional, intellectual, social, and physical being through the expert care of our child care providers and a unique partnership with parents. INVOLVE FAMILIES When it comes to teaching, Kids ‘R’ Kids understands the importance of involving families with the developmental milestones and accomplishments of their children - all the way from infant child care to preschool and throughout the school age program. When new skills are introduced or reinforced, having you, your child, and the teachers work together makes learning easy and fun. Using this streamlined approach to learning and keeping a close connection between home and school, Kids 'R' Kids ensures each child enrolled receives the individual guidance he deserves. DEDICATED TEACHERS Our teachers know that kids are naturally curious, so why not encourage this curiosity in a secure and educational environment? Going beyond traditional childcare, our highly trained teachers guide each child, using individual learning levels, creating the foundation needed to develop skills used in higher order thinking. Kids 'R' Kids is committed to providing a smart, safe, fun, and educational environment for your child, where he is loved and taught by experts dedicated to the highest standards in child care services, development and education. FULL ACCREDITATION Kids ‘R’ Kids International is accredited by AdvancED, the world’s largest education community, and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. This accreditation ensures that we are meeting and exceeding the high accreditation standards and providing excellence in education beyond most local daycare or childcare providers.

Mission: Kids ‘R’ Kids Schools of Quality Learning provide a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for children, a place for children to bloom into responsible, considerate and contributing members of society. Kids ‘R’ Kids wants all children to have the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually by playing, exploring, and learning with others in a fun, safe, and healthy environment. As a family-owned and operated organization, Kids ‘R’ Kids welcomes positive family involvement and encourages a parent-teacher approach where the needs of every child come first to obtain successful early childhood education and school-age care.

We turned snack time into learning with this easy STEAM activity! 🍇

With just two simple materials, we encouraged our children’s creative thinking and problem-solving skills. This activity focused on Engineering, Art & Math 🤓

After engaging in open-ended play, our teachers challenged each child with creating a design such as a square, building, car, etc!

We are thankful to be able to continue to be there for our families and staff!

We take every mandate, every guideline and policy extremely seriously. We will continue to

How can a handful of craft sticks and a few rubber bands turn into an afternoon of learning and laughter? Math, science, and language skills all come into play with this STEAM-inspired catapult that is as much fun to play with as it is to build. Start by asking your child how he or she might make a simple see-saw using the craft sticks. Let him or her experience the struggle of adding the rubber bands. Introduce the meaning of words like force, motion, projectile, and accuracy. After creating the catapult together, have your child make predictions about how far items of different weights might travel when launched. Show how to use a ruler or measuring tape and make a graph of the results. You can also help practice language skills by having them tell a story to describe what is happening with the objects. This is a terrific way to build understanding of concepts and expand vocabulary.

Literacy Connection: The Marshmallow Incident by Judi Barrett, author of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, is the perfect ending to a day of launching projectiles. It is a hilarious combination of solving differences, marshmallows, and medieval life!

What you’ll need:
• Popsicle Sticks
• Rubber bands
• Hot glue or gorilla glue
• Cotton balls, small marshmallows, small balled up tinfoil
• Target, such as cup or bowl

Instructions:
1. Take about 8 Popsicle sticks and tie two rubber bands at each ends of the sticks so that it looks like this
2. Take another Popsicle stick and place it in between the last and second last stick. Take another one and place it at the top. Use a rubber band to tie both the ends of the sticks.
3. Glue a water bottle cap to the end of your launching stick to hold materials you want to launch. We suggest cotton balls, tiny marshmallows, or balled up tin foil. (please be aware that small objects are choking hazards for young children) The heavier the item launched, the further it will travel.
4. Add a target (such as a cup) to see how many times you can launch your materials into the cup. You can also see how far you can launch materials by taking a piece of yarn as your goal line.

Suite 450 has been hard at work practicing name recognition! Name play in preschool has many cognitive benefits which include the ideals that recognizing one’s name helps children feel important, recognizing others’ names builds community, & name recognition builds concepts of print and begins the process of site reading.

Simple kitchen science is a fantastic way to teach your child that science is everywhere. This delicious snack is an easy way to let your child build connections between following a recipe and scientific thinking. You can even add in a pinch of math and language skills for a well-balanced activity. And this simple no-cook recipe is a safe way to let your child attempt as many of the tasks independently as possible. Estimating how much of the pan liner will be needed, tearing the paper, measuring ingredients and stirring carefully are all important thinking skills! To prompt some critical thinking, ask your child to predict how long it may take for the blueberries to freeze, talk about the freezing point of different things, and put a thermometer in the freezer to read the temperature together. Sharing conversation about the activity helps your child learn conversation skills and builds your relationship. Literacy Connection: Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey is a classic story that withstands the test of time, so you don’t want your child to miss out on this one. Little Sal goes with her mom on a blueberry picking adventure in the hills of Maine and winds up making an unexpected friend!

What you'll need:
• 1 pint container blueberries (about 125 blueberries)
• 1 cup vanilla, nonfat Greek yogurt
• 1 tablespoon stevia (or your favorite sugar substitute)

Instructions:
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the yogurt and sweetener.
3. Working in 2 batches, gently fold in the blueberries to coat in the yogurt. Scoop
them up with a fork and tap the excess yogurt off.
4. Place the blueberries on the baking sheet, being careful not to have them touch.
5. Freeze the baking sheet until the blueberries are completely frozen, about 1 hour.
6. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer.

Even if you live in an area where snow is uncommon, a snowman craft is a fun way to kick off the winter festivities!

Literacy Connection: Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin celebrates a historical look at the first person to capture the unique beauty of individual snowflakes! Even as a young boy, Wilson Bentley was determined to reveal the science and wonder of snowflakes during a time when such a passion was very uncommon. Despite this, his detailed photographs of microscopic
snowflakes from the late 1880’s are still popular and are even housed in the Smithsonian Institute’s Archives.

What you need:
• Natural wood clothespins
• Yarn in various colors
• Glue
• Orange mini pom-poms
• White paint
• Paint brush
• Black marker
• Scissors

How to:
• Start by painting the clothespins with white paint. Depending on the wood, paint, and your taste, you may need more than one layer.
• Be careful as the paint can “glue” the clothespin shut. Open it up a few times while it dries to prevent this.
• Once the paint dries completely, it’s time to make a scarf. Take a short piece of yarn and wrap it around the clothespin, making a knot. Add a drop of glue to secure it.
• Now take a black marker and draw two black eyes, mouth and black buttons on the snowman body.
• Add a drop of glue between the eyes and mouth and stick on an orange mini pom-pom. Wait for the glue to dry and your snowman is done!
