K.I.D.S Academy is a curriculum-based institution that offers “Enrichment” and/or “Exploration” programs.
The Enrichment program features curriculum by Preschool Palace (www.preschoolpalace.org) that highlights letter recognition and phonics, number recognition, math concepts, shapes, colors, arts and crafts, movement games, fine motor and sensory activities, and social interaction.
The Exploration program utilizes Patti Komara’s TumbleBear Gym
preschool gymnastics program (www.tumblebear.com). Children will focus on motor skills, age-appropriate physical activities, developing specific gymnastics skills and learn from progressive activities on each of the four Olympic events.
K.I.D.S. Academy instructors empower children to build their self-esteem through encouragement and positive reinforcements.
Learning is most effective when practiced in a safe, positive, stimulating environment where the instructor creates a encouraging tone. All of our instructors’ intrinsic passion for teaching and learning is reflected in the development and execution of meaningful educational experiences for all learners.
