About Us

 

Thank you for showing interest in our Learning Academy!

 

Kids 'R' Kids is a locally owned and operated franchise in Austin, Texas. We are very proud to provide the most innovative facilities and effective educational programs for children 6 weeks through 12 years of age.

 

Our center is approximately 20,000 square feet with 12 classroom suites, a cafeteria, a resource room, a large activity gym for before and after school students, and 7 large play areas separated for age groups. Each of our classrooms is a place of wonderment and delight where learning materials are strategically located to be within children's reach and children are encouraged to explore and try them out. We know that the secret of working with very young children is to create an environment full of things for them to discover that showcase their individual strengths as well as their differences.

 

At Kids 'R' Kids, we are committed to create an unhurried environment for growth and discovery among children, their families, and the greater community. We believe that children and educators are co-learners and children are born ready to engage in the world around them.

 

At Kids 'R' Kids, we maintain an awareness of children's developmental progress and tailor programs to meet children's interests and needs:

 

  • Document children's strengths and areas that need to develop.
  • Ask children questions and gather feedback from parents to determine children's interests.
  • Recognize when a child is ready to leap into new learning and provide just the right game, puzzle or exercise to nourish the child's love of learning.
  • Plan a variety of activities that challenge children and enhance their skills.
  • Adapt and change learning and play environments as children's interests evolve over time: for example, expanding and adding more props to the dramatic play area when children are spending more time there.
  • Develop theme-based learning kits for children, adapted to meet children's various needs.  Balance quiet and active times during the day.

 

 

Parents are invited to tour perspective classes before their child begins attending Kids 'R' Kids so they can fully understand what goes on and be certain about their choice of childcare center. At Kids 'R' Kids, parents are always welcome to be involved with the school and any of its programs. Each of our classrooms has a "class parent," whose role is to ensure a constant flow of communication between teachers and parents.
