Kids' R' Kids Olathe Learning Academy Opens New Advanced Early Education Center

OLATHE, KANSAS, April 1, 2017– Kids 'R' Kids Olathe has opened a new 17,000 square foot learning center at 1585 S. Mahaffie Circle, Olathe.  The new school, adjacent to the Garmin International campus, offers students 30% more room for their activities, as well as the latest in learning technology.

The new academy replaces the previous center that was located on Mahaffie St., two block south of the new building.  Placing the new academy close to the closed building made it easier for parents and children to transition into the the new environment, said Academy CEO Elizabeth Robinson. 

"Technology has changed so much in the last 19 years that the previous site just couldn't be adapted to meet our needs," she said.  "While our new classrooms are 30% larger, there aren't more children in them.  Our students just have more room for their activities."  

The project took almost two years to complete from design to opening. The all-steel building is 10 times more energy efficient than the previous structure, Ms. Robinson said.  Extra insulation was added between classroom and external walls were soundproofed to provide a quieter, more efficient learning environment.  In addition, each classroom has multiple internet connections to take advantage of the StarBoards teachers use to augment lessons.  There are two wireless zones for pre-K children to use Kindle readers.  And, the advanced wire system allows quick expansion of the technology.   Parents have a new high-definition camera system that allows them to monitor children in their classrooms at any time.

The center features all-new playground equipment, including a basketball court on the school-age playground.

"We're very proud of the new center and all the advantages it offers our students," Ms. Robinson said.  "With our nationally accredited curriculum, advanced technology, state certified teachers and brand new facilities, we have furthered our goal of offering the best care and early education in the region."
