Kids First is designed around the belief that a child's self-image is the most important ingredient in the learning process; believing that play is vital to a child's learning and each child is unique in his or her mental capacities, emotions, skills and interests. The center offers experiences that will enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development. We offer a balance of self and teacher-directed activities, so that the child may develop a positive self-concept. Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. We respect the parents right as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing and believe that together, parents and teachers can provide children with a feeling of self-competence and instill important cognitive concepts and promote sharing and cooperation.
The standard recommended age range levels for developmental placements are as follows;
Beginner Level 2½--3
Intermediate Level 3--4½
Pre-Kindergarten Level 4½--5
Kids First Learning Center curriculum components are Circle Time, Themes, Language Development, Reading Readiness, Math Readiness, Learning Centers, Art/Science/Cooking, Music, Sign-Language and Motor Movement. The purpose of these components is to provide an educational atmosphere in which children are encouraged to be productive and creative, developing an appreciation for education and a love of learning, educating the whole child--cognitively, emotionally, socially and physically. Emphasis is placed on learning through manipulative toys.
