DULUTH, Ga. - Dec. 14, 2016 // PRNewswire // - When school's out, winter camp is in! Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies, a national early childhood education franchise with three decades of experience, announced today that it is now accepting enrollment for its 2016 Winter Camp Program. School breaks can be challenging for working parents, but the programs offered this winter can provide both routine and enrichment for children during the holiday season. According to the National Summer Learning Association, students lose an equivalent of two months of their grade-level math skills over extended vacations. The best way to prevent "brain drain" and keep kids' minds sharp during time out of school is activity-based learning. This takes real world concepts that show students the relevancy of their learning, and inspire them to continue learning.
The Kids 'R' Kids facilities are built to educate and entertain, making time away from school a joy. The winter camp curriculum is based upon field trips, child-directed activities, and special group play to continually keep students active and occupied. As part of the STEAM AHEAD® curriculum, teachers at Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies are encouraged to think outside of the box, employing both thoughtful and engaging activities designed to spawn creativity and tap into each student's natural interest. Children are able to build skills that they might not have the time or opportunity to work on during school.
"Kids have the chance to learn about themselves during our winter camp, a skill that cannot be taught in school," said David Vinson, chief executive officer, Kids 'R' Kids, Inc. "Our winter curriculum allows children the ability to explore their own interests and personal expression, while still providing them with direction for safe, fun and educational activities. Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies across the nation strive this winter to offer unique and exciting activities, done independently or in groups, which offer children a chance to create interest clubs and interact with their peers in a relaxing environment."
Interested parents are invited to schedule an appointment with their local Kids 'R' Kids to tour the facility, meet the staff and learn more about the school's winter camp schedule and its flexible options for busy families with children from six weeks to 12 years of age. In order to provide even more convenience for families with busy schedules, all Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies remain open during all major school breaks and school holidays year-round. Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy encourages parents to check in with their local facility for camp schedules and featured programs.
Programs offered include infant care, toddler and preschool care, private pre-K and kindergarten, before-and-after school care and summer camp. For more than six years, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies has been accredited by AdvancED in America, the world's largest education community. This accreditation ensures its schools are meeting and exceeding the highest accreditation standards and providing excellence in education beyond most daycare and childcare providers.
For the last 30 years, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies has upheld its long-standing principle of strengthening and encouraging childhood development on an emotional, intellectual, social and physical level through a unique partnership between its child care providers and parents. The company's proprietary First Class Curriculum® is designed specifically for every developmental stage of education with theme-based units, specific learning activities and teacher-friendly lesson plans. Last year, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies unveiled its new STEAM AHEAD® project-based curriculum, an integrated curriculum for preschool students, ages three to five, which incorporates more science, technology, engineering, art, and math into everyday learning through play.
