GETTING READY FOR SCHOOL 

At Kids `R` Kids of Olathe, we measure the success of our pre-school program by how well our children do when they enter school.  And the answer is: They do great.  Not only have they developed the social skills that ensure their success in a group environment, they learn the alphabet, numbers and how to write their names, just to highlight a few things. Can you recite  presidents of the United States?  Our pre-schoolers can.

As professionals, our pre-school teachers at Kids 'R' Kids of Olathe take great pride in providing a structured learning environment.  To support those teachers, Kids `R` Kids of Olathe has a tuition reimbursement program that rewards them for college-level courses that make them better teachers for your children.  We also provide periodic training in the lastest education techniques to make sure we keep us with the best teaching practices.

Our standards based, Preschool Curriculum is divided into weekly, theme-based units. We introduce Value Words each week, working to strengthen and increase vocabularies and develop character. Group exercises, as well as individual skill practice, compliments your child's developmental growth, and provides him with many opportunities to explore his personal interests. Weekly character connections develop strong, positive character traits and boost self-esteem in every child.

The Preschool Curriculum includes:

  • small group activities planned for every child, throughout every day
  • literacy and writing activities are age appropriate and provided daily
  • activities and music to balance learning and fun
  • emotional and social development with peers and teachers
  • planned outdoor activities for physical fitness and development
  • daily enrichment activities to encourage imaginative and creative play
  • progress reports on child's daily accomplishments
  • decision-making skills to support growing minds

Our Advanced Approach

Each day at Kids `R` Kids, children spend their time exploring, learning, and accomplishing new skills. The value of "playtime" should not be underestimated in a preschool learning environment. Kids `R` Kids, through decades of working with and observing children, understands that as children work and play in well-designed learning stations, they learn to make good choices because there is purpose in their play.Your child learns critical developmental skills throughout each of our learning stations.
