In addition to nurturing and basic care, our teachers stimulate infants' senses to encourage their mental and physical development. KIDZ ACADEMY provides an ideal environment in which your child will learn to grasp toys, vocalize sounds, recognize pictures of familiar objects, and acquire a variety of other skills.
Teachers work with each child in a series of stimulating activities that incorporate the natural routines of feeding and play. The teacher reinforces the babies' development without disrupting their daily schedule.
As infants mature and become Waddlers, we continue to stimulate their senses and encourage them to explore their world. Your child will learn such skills as pushing and pulling objects, turning and bending, sorting objects by color and size, exploring the concept of big and little, and building an early vocabulary.
At this stage your Waddler will start to experience a somewhat more structured classroom routine. He or she will start to learn valuable skills such as how to co-exist with other children in a learning environment and how to share.
At this point, your child will begin experimenting and interacting with other children and the environment. Daily routine and structures are introduced into the daily schedule. Your child will start to learn how to find uses for familiar objects and how to explain everyday occurrences using simple reasoning.
This is also the time we introduce letters, numbers, and colors into the program. Our daily activities continue to reinforce age-appropriate social development.
