    Spending quality time with your child can be heart-warming, and a fun bonding experience. Many parents often have difficulty finding the best learning activities, which are fun, exciting and developmental. Allow us to share with you some fun ideas on what you can do with your daycare or preschool child, when you have spare time.

    Making stamps

    If you want an activity that promotes creativity, fine motor skills and self-control, take potatoes, rubber or even clay, and cut various inverted shapes into them. Using this as a stamp, have the child dip the carved end into non-toxic watercolor or tempera paint, and stamp it on a surface. This activity is inexpensive and promotes effective early development, planning and fine motor control, and is a lot of fun for your child.

    Playing with water

    There are few activities that provide as much joy and healthy exercise than playing with water. This can be done with a sand and water table, wet sponges, or with a sprinkler. A child will naturally enjoy playing and experimenting with water. Due to the nature of water as opposed to hard toys and surfaces, this activity will provide hours of fun for your child. Water can also be utilized to build castles out of sand, feed hungry plants and even create colorful rainbows in your own back yard, providing a truly diverse learning experience.

    The world is full of excitement and fun, especially for a young, growing child. All you have to do is encourage and enjoy these great learning experiences. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock, Texas is here to offer your child an early development like no other. With our exclusive Brain WavesTM Curriculum you can rest easy, knowing that your child is being perfectly cared for in every aspect of healthy child care. Contact us for more details.

  • What makes some Round Rock preschools better than others?

    round_rock_tx_day_care

    When your child is ready for the learning environment of a preschool, it can be a challenging time. How do you know if one preschool is better for your child than another? Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock, Texas, shares some insight on how to identify and choose a quality preschool.

    Look for an open-learning environment

    Open-learning is a form of education for young children that has been developed over the past 40 years. This type of learning can be within a formal educational environment or not, but it should include activities that promote learning on an individual basis versus on a group basis. There tends to be a focus on developing problem solving skills.

    Engaging and interactive teachers

    Another important factor that determines a quality preschool is whether the teachers are properly trained and actually engage with each child. You can ask about the teacher-child ratio and visit the school to observe how teachers interact with the children. Since each child is unique and learns differently, you should be able to observe how the teacher works with each individual.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock encourages and rewards independent thinking and problem solving. Although young children need a certain amount of learning through repetition, continually practicing patterns to memorize a lesson, they also need to be able to develop problem solving and independent thinking skills. When your child is engaged in open-learning, you will notice that your child will have more confidence to explore the world and interact with others more confidently.

    We offer the ideal specialized child care facility where your child will receive the best physical, emotional, and intellectual development available. Our AdvancED™ accredited program will equip your child with the necessary skills to thrive academically. Contact us today if you would like more information.

    The average child’s brain develops at an amazing rate, especially in the first few years. Therefore, parents need to consider how to promote this process in their children. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock shares some information to encourage healthy brain development in young children.

    Maintain a healthy diet from birth

    Fostering healthy brain development starts just after conception. Mothers-to-be are encouraged to develop healthy eating habits during pregnancy. After delivery mothers should breastfeed their infants for the first six months, then start introducing iron-rich foods and foods with a wide variety of healthy nutrients such as mercury-free fish, lean beef, poultry, fruits and vegetables.

    Responding to your baby

    Parents need to respond appropriately to children and especially to infants. Be expressive and loving in your responses to ensure that your infant will thrive and have healthy brain development. Early care has decisive and long-lasting effects on how children develop and learn, how they cope with stress, and how they regulate their own emotions. It is important to develop a strong and secure attachment with your child early on since this can provide protection at a biological level.

    Positive experiences

    Your infant’s brain will be impacted by every experience he or she has. The impact of early positive experiences is crucial for healthy development. This includes social interactions with everyone your child comes into contact with. You should consider finding infant care programs that promote healthy cognitive, emotional, and social development in your child.

    Infant cognitive development happens rapidly within the first two years of your child’s life. How you talk and respond to an infant will play a big part in a child’s cognitive development. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock we provide an exceptional infant child care program that focuses on stimulating your child’s cognitive abilities. Our infant child care program nurtures each child, and we furnish plenty of hugs, love and personal attention for every child. We have compiled useful information on your child’s cognitive development below:

    Cognitive development

    Your child is born with the ability to breathe, sleep and eat. However, the parts of your child’s brain that utilizes memory, language use and thought have to be stimulated in order to work properly. This process is called cognitive development.

    Cognitive development can start developing even before birth. As an example your child can remember music you played during pregnancy, and will react when hearing it after birth. This is a sign that a child can remember things experienced while in the womb.

    How you can help boost cognitive development

    Your child is born with a great ability to learn. The more practice and repetition, the faster cognitive skills will develop. Utilizing age-appropriate toys can play an important role in your child’s cognitive development. Here are a few ways to boost cognitive development:

    • Play games that stimulate development, such as puzzles
    • Read to your child
    • Play music

    Reading books with colorful pictures and illustrations, and teaching your child a new language are excellent activities to encourage cognitive abilities.

    As your child grows cognitive abilities will develop and improve. Stimulation is the key ingredient to produce this process.

    Your preschool child learns best while having fun, and is genuinely interested in what he or she is doing. Armed with this knowledge, toy manufacturers from around the world have continued to create fun, exciting, educational toys for preschool children. Here are some of today’s educational toys of which Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock approves:

    Lego

    Lego is, and has been, one of the leading educational toy companies in the world for many years. Many of us parents grew up playing with Lego, and remember the fun we had. While the concept may seem simple, playing with the colorful interlocking plastic bricks from Lego actually teaches your child a number of things including: shape recognition, color identification, and basic counting skills. Playing with these bricks also helps fine-tune hand-eye coordination.

    Mobile devices

    Smartphones and tablets have become ubiquitous today and are more affordable than ever. Many preschools and parents are allowing children to use these devices to access educational digital playground apps. These applications are an excellent way for your child to learn about technology and develop such skills as math, reading and language. These apps are also fun and engaging, so your child will learn while having fun.

    Matching / Memory / Sorting games

    Matching and sorting games come in many shapes and forms, however, they all work the same way. They simply require your child to match several like objects or sort several sequential objects such as blocks of different sizes. These games aid your child in learning how to memorize and recognize like items and can help him learn problem solving skills.

    The brain grows rapidly in young children. It develops and changes quickly and the early years of a child’s life are a critical time for development. There are different stages of growth that a child experiences, which can be tracked using developmental milestones. These milestones can differ with each child. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock, we take your child’s development seriously. We offer a child brain development program, and as specialists in child care we have put together a list of age appropriate milestones that each child generally reaches as they grow.

    A child between the ages of one and two

    This is the most important time of a child’s life. This is when they learn to speak and begin to communicate with those around them. At this stage, the brain is rapidly growing and taking in a great deal of information. During this stage, a child is generally able to:

    • Speak
    • Walk
    • Use their hands to hold utensils and begin to self-feed

    A child between the ages of three and four

    At this stage, your child may be able to do most basic things on their own, though generally under a parent’s supervision. Parents need to stimulate their child’s brain with fun activities to increase brain development. At this stage the child may be able to:

    • Speak with an increased vocabulary
    • Walk, run, and climb
    • Use the toilet on their own

    We understand that developmental milestones differ from child to child, therefore the timeline events listed above are general guidelines. Parents need to be sure to provide mental and physical stimulation for their children including exercise, food and games.

  • Round Rock, TX child care advice: Why teach your infant sign language

    child_care_round_rock_tx

    If you are a parent of an infant or about to become one, you may be familiar with infant sign language. But how does it benefit children who can hear? At Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock, we know it is a worthwhile skill. That is why sign language is a part of our widely-recognized infant program.

    1. Effective preverbal communication: Infants take some time to develop verbal skills. It takes longer before these skills are developed enough for effective communication. Signing gives your child a means to communicate with you instead of crying, cooing or gesturing. It is far more specific and can be accomplished with basic motor skills. Signs that are often taught to infants from 6-8 months include: hungry, thirsty, play, tired, more, hot and cold, among others.

    2. Reduced frustration for you and your infant: Communicating more effectively reduces frustration for both you and your infant. You will experience fewer tantrums on their side, and less worry on yours. For example: Your infant begins to cry, indicating unhappiness. You then need to find the cause. Is you infant hungry, thirsty or just not feeling well? With the help of sign language, your child could indicate the sign for "thirsty" giving you a specific reason for their unhappiness in a fraction of the time.

    3. Bonding: Bonding with your infant is all about spending time together and interacting. You might be singing, copying their sounds, making funny faces or reading a story. Sign language is a great addition to this and is also a lot of fun. There's no limit to the amount of signs you can teach your child. You should start off very slowly, so you can use this special language to explore the world together.

    4. Boost development: Positive stimulation is a great way to activate your infant's brain cells and build neural pathways, both essential to learning and development. Through interaction and communication with you, your child learns to focus and develop language, memory and motor skills. Plenty of praise and cuddles for repeating, remembering or using a sign will help encourage your child and reward their drive to learn.

    If you are looking for a child care center and would like your child to attend a facility that emphasizes age-appropriate development, love and fun, choose Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Round Rock. Our infant program, led by dedicated, highly qualified staff, goes well beyond traditional child care centers, embracing innovative activities designed to provide your child with the right stimulation to increase their development and help he/she reach their potential.
