Kids R Kids of Olathe Earns Presidential Award for Excellence

ATLANTA, GA., April 6, 2015 – Kids 'R' Kids Olathe has earned the national Presidential Award for Educational Excellence, KRK International announced today.

KRK Olathe is one of only a handful of early educatiion Academies that received the award after a nationwide review of facilities, programs, curriculum, teacher accreditation and regulatory compliance.

"We were surprised but happy when we recieved news of the award," said Executive Director Russ Robinson.  "Our Academy and operation are reviewed a minumum of four times a year.  The Presidential Award is by far the hardest and most thorough review we undergo.

"We have great families, great kids, an accredited teaching staff, and we all work together to provide the best for our children," Robinson said.  The Presidential Award becomes the 13th National Award KRK has earned since the facility opened in 1999.    The Olathe Academny is accredited by  the world's foremost educational review authority – AdvancEd.

The center was recognized for outstanding educational accomplishments and top-notch facilities by AdvancEd.  AdvancED is the world's largest education community, serving more than 30,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in more than 70 countries that educate over 16 million students.  " After a rigorous review of the center's programs, AdvancEd surveyors conducted an on-site inspection, leading the authority to declare, “This school is a good place to be,” Robinson said.

“The recognition is really a tribute to our teachers,” said  Robinson.  “Our teachers work hard to provide a safe, loving learning environment.  They really make the curriculum come alive for our students and that makes learning fun.”

In 2013, KRK Olathe earned a Gold Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement from Kids 'R' Kids International.   And for three consecutive years, Kids 'R' Kids Olathe has been selected for the Best of Olathe Award in the Early Childhood Education & Services category by the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA).  Nationwide, only 1 in 120 (less than 1%) of  Award recipients qualified as Three-Time Award Winners.

The center's curriculum offers an organized, progressive approach to learning, ensuring that students "learn how to learn" in a supportive, non-competitive environment.
