  • Why Accreditation Matters

    Standardization can help in major ways. When we all agree on measurements, traffic signals, or punctuation systems, society becomes much more cohesive and we can all move in the same direction. That BBB plaque on the wall of your local law firm or the big letter A from the FDA at the taco shop go a long way in customers’ minds.Of course, that isn’t to say that we all need to conform and be the same—society needs unique and creative individuals just as much as standardization. The two go hand in hand. But accreditation is a s... Read More

    Standardization can help in major ways. When we all agree on measurements, traffic signals, or punctuation systems, society becomes much more cohesive and we can all move in the same direction. That BBB plaque on the wall of your local law firm or the big letter A from the FDA at the taco shop go a long way in customers’ minds.

    Of course, that isn’t to say that we all need to conform and be the same—society needs unique and creative individuals just as much as standardization. The two go hand in hand. But accreditation is a standard that says, “Hey, this is a good school. It meets these high requirements.”

    The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is one such accrediting organization. They ensure its members have the highest standard of quality for education.

    NAEYC accreditation is the gold standard,” the website says, “for early childhood programs across the country. Families of young children who attend NAEYC-accredited programs can be confident that they deliver the highest quality early care and education.”

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we strive to measure up to these standards, and lucky enough for your children, we have achieved them! We are a NAEYC accredited school, and we are the gold standard for childcare.

  • San Antonio, TX Preschool: Keep Learning Fun For Your Child

    The rate at which children grow and develop is staggering! We all know the familiar feelings of, “Slow down! Stop growing up!” when our tiny baby transforms from a bundle into a toddler and then into a running and enthusiastic preschooler. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, we get to see this growth firsthand on a regular basis and we absolutely lo... Read More

    The rate at which children grow and develop is staggering! We all know the familiar feelings of, “Slow down! Stop growing up!” when our tiny baby transforms from a bundle into a toddler and then into a running and enthusiastic preschooler. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, we get to see this growth firsthand on a regular basis and we absolutely love seeing each child thrive in our care.

    Did you know that these first few years of your child’s life are crucial in terms of early development and learning? One of the greatest advantages you can give your child at this stage is an excellent education at an elite preschool or learning academy. In addition to exclusive preschool curriculum that incorporates all of the major STEM pillars of early education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as well as art, our state-of-the-art facility offers special programs to enhance your child’s learning experience!

    As your child continues to learn and develop, it’s important to keep the learning process going through every circumstance and scenario. Whether you’re at home together, running errands, or on vacation – every opportunity is an opportunity to learn!

    Try some of these tips to help keep learning fun for your child:

    Balance learning with fun.Your child’s preschool should provide an interactive and fun learning environment. Learning doesn’t have to be achieved by just one method, so look for a preschool where your child gets to spend time outside of a traditional classroom (and an extra bonus if the preschool uses educational technology like SmartBoard to add another layer of interaction to your child’s education).

    Look for creative learning experiences. Your child will be more engaged when learning is creative with projects and hands-on activities. Look for class activities beyond sitting and listening. Pay attention to any special activities your child can participate in during the holidays or for a community event.

    Volunteer and get involved. Get to know your child’s teachers and staff and offer to volunteer in your child’s classroom if you have the flexibility. Ask your child what material is being covered in the classroom and try to complement the classroom material at home. When you show excitement and interest in the learning process, your child will also be motivated to learn.

    Always compliment and affirm your child.At this age, your child is achieving major milestones so be sure to encourage and celebrate every victory!

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids of Liberty Field we celebrate the uniqueness of every child, which is why our programs address different interests and learning styles! Our excellent teachers are experts at creative and engaging teaching. Contact us today for more information on our excellent programs for children as young as 6 weeks old!

    We all know that the summertime can be prime time for your child to lose focus on anything remotely educational and disappear into iPads and TV shows. While a little TV time is not going to ruin your child, we suggest filling at least part of each summer day with a good book. For young toddlers and preschoolers, reading is an excellent way to keep your child’s brain engaged. The practice of reading – turning the pages, using silly voices for each character, having a special place to read together – is working to shape your little one’s mind.

    If your child has not shown any interest in reading, this may be a little more of a challenge for you, however, the sooner you start making reading a natural part of your daily routine the higher the likelihood is that your child will begin to enjoy it. An important part of reading with your child is finding a topic or theme or character that resonates with your child. Not every child will enjoy stories about dump trucks or princesses or butterflies or pirates – find something that peaks your child’s interest and run with it. Thinking outside of the box is a great idea as well, your child may surprise you with what she shows an interest in! Go to your local library and pick up a few short story books to begin. When your child is older and has the attention span for it, move into chapter books!

    Reading at bedtime is an easy way to incorporate reading into the day. Remember that reading is not just about learning the ABCs and the correct use of grammar or punctuation. Reading is mostly about imagination, play and creativity!

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, we are passionate about creating a learning environment that encourages early readers. Even with our littlest learners in our Infants program, we make reading a part of our daily routine! Contact us today to find out how we can meet and exceed all of your childcare needs.

  • San Antonio, TX Childcare: Making Thunderstorms un-scary!

    We all know that April showers bring May flowers but, if you live in Texas, it can also mean – tornado watches.

    Girl with Umbrella - Bigstock resized.jpegWe all know that April showers bring May flowers but, if you live in Texas, it can also mean – tornado watches. The unpredictable weather in springtime can often lead to little children cowering under the covers or crawling into mom and dad’s bed. It’s understandable that the loud claps of thunder and flashes of lightning can make a child nervous but how can you help ease their fears? Here are a few helpful tips.

    1.Understanding makes it easier – Sometimes children are afraid simply because they don’t understand what’s happening during a storm. The more they know what causes a storm, the more it may help them to stay settled. Spend some time researching thunderstorms and maybe doing some fun science experiments that can help recreate parts of the storm.

    2.Make a Plan! – Having structure in their world helps children adapt to their surroundings. Come up with a family plan for thunderstorms so your child knows what they can expect when storms come.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, your child’s concern is our number one priority. That’s why we have procedures in place for whenever there is dangerous weather in the area and always keep parents up to date on school closings. Contact us today to schedule a free tour!

  • 5 Ways to Enjoy Playtime with Your Child

    "Play with me!” Those are three little words that some parents may come to dread.

    "Play with me!” Those are three little words that some parents may come to dread. As much as we love our children, it can often be a challenge to engage with them enthusiastically as we play the same game of make-believe with the same action figures or toy cars. What many parents do not realize is that being a faithful play partner with their child is an excellent avenue for establishing trust with the child.

    Here are 5 helpful tips to consider when playing with your child:

    1.Get creative with your playtime.Your child may suggest the same activity everyday, but feel free to offer new alternatives for playtime. They may not always be willing, but you will be surprised at how refreshing it is when you are able to do a new activity together. Take them on a nature walk and collect acorns or make a pizza together!

    2.Show your child how you enjoy playing!While it’s important that your child do most of the directing as you play together, feel free to demonstrate how you like to spend your time too as a means of connecting with your child. Whether that’s painting your nails, throwing a football, or reading a book, allow your child to enter into your world.

    3.Set aside specific time.It’s easy to be distracted as a parent with all of the chores and errands that need to be done in a day. Don’t let your whole day go by without some playtime with your child. Set a timer or alarm for 30 minutes to an hour and give your child your undivided attention. No phone or multi-tasking during playtime. Just play!

    4.Remember that play can happen throughout the day. There are obvious times of the day when your child will play. But you can also play during trips to the grocery store, while driving in the car, getting ready for school, etc.

    5.Enjoy your child. Even if the thought of playtime is stressful for you, try to view it as an opportunity to discover new aspects of your child that you may not have already noticed.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field is proud to offer an exclusive STEAM AHEAD Curriculum that seamlessly incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math into your preschooler’s day! We understand that children are motivated and inspired when they are able to have fun as they learn. Our programs range from infant care to before/after school activities and we are confident that as your child’s First Step to Higher Education™ we will give your child the solid educational foundation they need for a lifetime of success!

    It’s only a few weeks into the New Year but for many people the goals they so carefully planned out on December 31st have been packed up with all of the Christmas décor. It can be a challenge to maintain all of the lofty goals we set for ourselves. “Run a marathon!” “Eliminate sugar from my diet!” “Finish the laundry!” Some of them are next to impossible (especially that laundry one!). One of the best ways to set yourself and your family up for successfully achieving goals is to start small.

    If you have a preschooler or toddler at home it is especially important to live an active and healthy lifestyle during these formative years. Even young infants can benefit from family fitness! Instead of adding more on to your already busy plate, think through your schedules and free time and figure out what can be replaced with a healthy activity. For example, instead of watching TV after dinner every night designate one or two nights for a family walk or visit to a local park.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field we understand that preschoolers and school-age children love to learn when they are having fun! Our extra-curricular activities encourage children to get up and move during the day. Whether children want to express themselves on the dance floor or spend time on the court or on the field, we have exciting options available. Choosing the right sport or pastime for your child can help them live a healthier and more active lifestyle! Be sure you also set goals that are achievable and take time to celebrate little victories for everyone in your family throughout the year.

    Next time you enjoy a spontaneous dance party to your preschooler’s favorite song, or endure a request to play her favorite CD in the car over and over again – take it as a good sign! Music is a highly effective tool for encouraging healthy neural connections in your child’s brain. Several studies have linked a child’s exposure to music with advanced academic skills in reading and math.

    Even babies benefit when you make singing to them a regular part of their day. Not only does singing help strengthen bonds between parent and child, it also helps begin the journey of language comprehension and vocabulary development. Music is universally enjoyed across all cultures and age groups, making it one of the most effective learning tools!

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, our music program gives your child the opportunity to play various musical instruments, learn about how music is used in different cultures, and even create a musical masterpiece of their own! In addition to our music program, our classrooms often incorporate musical activities to help reinforce learning concepts.

  • Choosing the Right Sport for Your First-Time Athlete

    It's amazing how children seem to have a limitless supply of energy throughout the day. Many parents find it difficult to keep up with their growing toddler or energetic preschooler.

    It's amazing how children seem to have a limitless supply of energy throughout the day. Many parents find it difficult to keep up with their growing toddler or energetic preschooler. A great way to harness your child’s energy and aim it at a constructive outlet is to get your child involved in a sporting activity. Learning the values of teamwork, discipline, and exercise are all excellent reasons to encourage your child to try out a new activity. It can be difficult to know where to start if your child has not yet participated in sporting activities, but the time and effort you place in helping your child choose an activity is worth the time and energy!

    Consider the following simple steps to help you in the process:

    1. Play with your child – This helps you figure out what really intrigues your child and what keeps his/her attention. Throw a football, swing a baseball, kick a soccer ball and see if anything seems to stick out to your child. Keep in mind that some children may thrive best in an individual sport at first such as tennis or golf, especially if they exhibit a strong-willed nature. Be sure to think outside the box of only team sports.

    2. One thing at a time – It may be tempting to enroll your child in several activities to try and find which one works the best but this will likely overstretch your schedule. When your child attempts something new, it’s important for a parent to have the time to be an available source of support. Try sticking to one new activity at a time. If it isn’t your child’s favorite activity there is nothing wrong with moving to a better fit.

    3. Model good sportsmanship in the home and at preschool or childcare – A child learns so much from observing the people around him. Raising a good sport happens long before your child puts on his first jersey or her first tennis skirt. Be consistent in explaining and demonstrating behavior that is respectful towards others. Your child will take with him the lessons he learned off the field and translate it into the new sporting activity.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, we take our role as the First Step To Higher Education™ for your child very seriously. In addition to offering a dynamic curriculum that stretches and challenges your child, we are always teaching our students to be kind, respectful and considerate towards others. Consistency is always the key in developing children to reach their full potential. You can be assured we are absolutely committed to setting your child up for a lifetime of success! Contact us today or take a tour of our facility to see for yourself how we provide so much more than a childcare or daycare.

    With Fall officially beginning on September 23rd we can look forward to cooler weather and colorful leaves in the near future. Fall is a great season to spend quality time outdoors as a family. For many school age children, extracurricular activities and sports teams will provide an opportunity to get outside and exercise. Even children who are starting preschool or attend childcare will have many chances to enjoy the changing leaves and welcoming climate of Fall. Fun Fall family activities are always in abundance!

    Check out these creative ideas for inspiration on how to enjoy this season:

    • Figure out your family schedule. Since many extracurricular activities begin around this time it’s important to have a good understanding of your family schedule. Spend some time over dinner discussing the details of the season to avoid becoming over-booked.
    • Make a scarecrow. Scarecrows have become a familiar symbol of Fall, even if you don’t have any reason to scare away crows! Creating a scarecrow is a simple and fun way to involve the kids in decorating for Fall. Make the body of your scarecrow by stuffing a bunch of leaves or other filler into a large bag. Gather some old clothes, and other accessories like a hat or bandana and dress your scarecrow. Proudly display your creation in your yard!
    • Attend a community fall harvest event. Hayrides and festivals abound this time of year! Don’t forget to check our monthly newsletter for fun events happening at Kids ‘R’ Kids Liberty Field!
    • Plant a garden. Springtime isn’t the only season that boasts beautiful plants for the garden. Research the best flowers and vegetables that thrive during the Fall and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
    • Update your closets. A change in the weather demands a change in your wardrobe. Set aside a day where everyone in the family updates their closets from summer to fall. Donate clothes that were hardly worn or were outgrown during the summer. If you need to replace items in your Fall clothes, make a list and plan a day to shop for those items.
    • Enjoy a family picnic. Spend some time outdoors together as a family. Ask your children if they can find any signs of Fall in the landscape around you. Pack a football or frisbee with your picnic and take advantage of your time together as a family by exercising!

    Fall is a beautiful season and at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Liberty Field, we love to take advantage of the changing seasons with creative learning activities indoors and outdoors. We strive to expand learning beyond a daycare or childcare experience by creating an ongoing academic learning opportunity for infants, toddlers, and preschool children.

    We hope you will take a look at our newsletter, browse our website, and see the many steps we take to make learning fun! Feel free to contact us and tour our Learning Academy to see firsthand how we engage our students and encourage them as they grow and learn through every stage.

  • Fun Ways to Help Develop Your Child’s Vocabulary

    As you watch your children grow, you will be amazed at their capability to pick up new words. Beginning at the toddler stage, your child will likely have a vocabulary of around 50 words.

    As you watch your children grow, you will be amazed at their capability to pick up new words. Beginning at the toddler stage, your child will likely have a vocabulary of around 50 words. After a few months, that vocabulary will increase to 200-300 words and eventually your child will have a solid vocabulary of up to 500-1000 words by the age of three! When your child begins to develop his own vocabulary, it opens up a whole new world of self-expression and learning.

    Attending a preschool or childcare facility will help foster even more growth in your child’s ability to learn and use new words. If your child attends a preschool that provides standards-based curriculum with motivated, professional teachers then he will have a great foundation for developing his social and verbal skills. There are also some fun activities you can implement at home to encourage your child’s vocabulary!

    Take a look at these ideas to help increase your child’s vocabulary at home:

    • Visit your local library on a regular basis and let your child choose books that feature topics of natural interest. Make sure to challenge him to read books that may be a little beyond his reading comfort zone since he will likely encounter new words in those books.
    • Have a family game night that involves word games. The whole family can play games such as Scrabble Junior and help your child think creatively with words!
    • When you are speaking with your child, use synonyms to help learn new ways of saying familiar phrases. For example, you can point to a large dog and say, “Wow! Isn’t that dog big? He’s huge! Look at how large his paws are!” As you use several descriptor words, your child will learn new words and begin to use them in his everyday communication.
    • Increasing vocabulary has a lot to do with increasing knowledge. Always encourage your child to ask questions like “What is that? What does that mean?” This allows him to gain greater understanding while being exposed to new words.

    When parents welcome a new beautiful baby into the world, their hearts are filled with dreams and expectations for that little bundle of joy. What may come as a surprise is that the child has plans of his own that may not align with what the parents had hoped for.

    Some children exhibit a personality that is identified as “strong-willed.” This means, the child will want to push limits, explore boundaries, and take charge of the environment. While this behavior can be very frustrating for the child’s parents, it’s important to remember that strong-willed children often become great leaders in their families and communities because of their desire for independence at an early age.

    If you have a strong-willed child at home, you understand the unique challenges that occur on a daily basis during ordinary tasks such as picking up toys, eating lunch etc. For a fiercely independent child these everyday rituals can take twice as long due to their resolve to do things their own way. Additionally, some parents have difficulty finding a babysitter for a child that exhibits these personality traits since managing the child can be overwhelming for someone unaccustomed to a strong-willed child’s behavior.

    Below are a few suggestions that will hopefully help you to enjoy your strong-willed child without sacrificing your family’s sanity in the process.

    1. Recognize and celebrate your child’s personality – As stated earlier, strong-willed children are often the leaders of tomorrow who need your intentional guidance, discipline, and instruction as they learn how to manage their intense feelings, thoughts, and emotions.

    2. Set boundaries and stick to them – Strong-willed children can often be very persuasive in convincing parents to bend the rules or expand boundaries that have been put in place. It’s important to stick to your boundaries and to discipline your children when they step outside of them. The only way a child will learn to respect rules and authority is when the rules are consistently enforced. Explain to your children why the rules exist so they can learn the value of following them.

    3. Give room for independence – When strong-willed children express a desire for independence during a task they are capable of doing, give them thae opportunity to do it themselves. Often when children say, “I can do it myself!” it’s more about their desire to flex their independence and not meant to be a direct attack or undermining of the parent’s authority. This takes a lot of patience as your toddler/preschooler will likely take considerably longer to accomplish the task than if you had done it for them. If you’re in a situation that is time-sensitive or you have an appointment, help your child for now but create an opportunity for your child to handle the task later.

    4. Step back and breathe – Raising a strong-willed child is a difficult task and it’s easy to become quickly angered or frustrated with your child. When you sense yourself about to lash out with angry words towards your child, try closing your eyes briefly and take a deep breath. This exercise won’t make your child any less strong-willed but it can considerably help you navigate your own frustration and avoid doing or saying something you may later regret. When raising children of all temperaments and personalities, the goal is to seek to encourage and affirm, rather than focus on the negative.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field in San Antonio, TX we understand the different personalities found in infants, toddlers, and preschool children. Our curriculum is designed with varying learning styles in mind and meets each child where they are in the developmental process.

  • Helping Your Preschooler Celebrate Dad

    It’s time to celebrate dads! With all of the love and support dads give to their families every day, we at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field are proud to honor the upstanding father figures in our wonderful students’ lives. Preschoolers and toddlers have a wide variety of DIY projects and crafts they can create when Mother’s Day rolls around, but what about dad?

    This year, skip the socks and bow ties for Father’s Day and give dad some memories and treasures that will leave a lasting impression of love. Here are a few ideas:

    1. Following in His Footsteps – Take one of dad’s shoes, coat the bottom of his shoe with washable paint, adhering only a light layer of paint with a sponge brush and press his shoeprint onto a piece of paper. Take one of your child’s shoes and repeat the process using different color paint and placing the shoe print inside of the father’s shoe print. Write “Following In Daddy’s Footsteps” on the paper, frame and present to dad! This will make for the perfect décor in his office or at home.

    2. For the Sports Fan – If you have an infant or toddler in the home, the remote control can be quite a hot commodity – as a teething toy! Unfortunately, this may also mean that dad has sacrificed many game-watching opportunities for episodes of Sesame Street or Dora the Explorer. This year, why not make him a remote he can keep all to himself? It may not function the way he may have hoped, but it sure is a sweet gesture! Click here for an easy tutorial on Remote Control Sugar Cookies!

    3. Dad Facts - Children always say the silliest things! Put together a questionnaire and interview your child about dad and record their answers. You may be surprised how old your young preschooler thinks dad is, “1,000 years old!” or what his favorite pastime is, “Reading me books!” Frame their responses and present it to dad on Father’s day. It’s sure to get a good laugh and be treasured for many years!

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field we love all of our families and are grateful for the chance to give our students a nurturing, dynamic learning environment for every age group! Whether you are looking for a place for your infant, toddler, or school-age child we offer programs that help your child flourish! Contact us today for more information!

    Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer! This means a lot of fun activity is going to be enjoyed by families and young children all across the nation. This also means staying safe in the summer heat is a primary concern for many parents of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Protecting your child from the sun’s UV rays is an important element to enjoying the outdoors during the hot summer months.

    Avoiding overexposure to the sun’s rays is important while still allowing for the healthy benefits of outdoor play. In addition to the benefit of absorbing vitamin D3 through playing in the sun, outdoor play is also an excellent environment for children to get exercise, use their imagination, and connect with other energetic children. Since playing outside is so much fun for children they are often too wrapped up in their play to notice how their skin is responding to the UV rays.

    Here are some helpful steps you can take to keep sunburned skin from ruining your summer fun:

    1. If you plan to be in the sun for a long period of time such as at a park or an outdoor birthday party, always wear light clothing you can use to cover your skin as well as sunscreen.

    a. Be aware of the type of sunscreen you use. Many popular sunscreens contain chemicals that could potentially be harmful to skin. Look for non-mineral sunscreen that uses zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. These more natural sunscreens do not dissolve in sunlight, are not usually absorbed into the body and are overall more effective at blocking UV rays.

    2. Eat a diet high in anti-oxidants to protect your skin. Great snacks to bring along when spending time in the sun include: cranberries or blueberries, and pecans, walnuts and hazelnuts. All of these snacks are rich in antioxidants.

    3. Keep track of how long your child’s skin has been exposed to the sun. Too much time in the sun may mean the sunscreen is no longer protecting the skin. Pay attention to any sign of skin problems and seek shade to better protect your child’s skin.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field takes your child’s safety very seriously, which is why we take careful measures to make sure our infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are loved, nurtured, and safe. Our commitment to your child goes above and beyond an average daycare or childcare facility. One example of this is the rigorous training we require of our staff – each member is trained in First Aid/CPR, Infectious Disease Control, Injury Prevention, and Child Abuse Awareness. Teachers are also encouraged to further their education through CDA and CCP programs and are given opportunities to attend professional training conferences.

    Warm weather has arrived and summer is always quick to follow. For many children, this summer may be their first experience participating in a summer camp. Depending on what type of child you have, the idea of summer camp could be exhilarating or terrifying.

    If your child is ordinarily very shy, it’s important to take steps to prepare for a new social experience with other children. Great friendships can be made during summer camp but it’s important to give tips on how to transition.

    1. Play “Pretend Camp” – Give your child examples of situations that may happen at summer camp. What kind of conversations will they have? Will they eat in a cafeteria or with other kids? If you know where they’ll be going on field trips, visit the locations beforehand. The more familiar you make the idea of summer camp, the more comfortable your child will become.

    2. Talk with the Summer Camp Workers – The staff at a Summer Camp program should be available to chat with you about any concerns you have regarding your child’s transition. Fill them in on how you think your child may respond and how they can help with the transition. The more information they have, the easier it will be for them to help your child adjust comfortably.

    3. Validate your child’s feelings – If your child is anxious about summer camp, it’s important to listen when concerns are expressed. Affirm, love, and encourage your child throughout the process of trying this new experience. When you see your child progressing and adapting to summer camp, be sure to offer lots of praise!

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field we are excited about our engaging and educational Summer Camp program. We’ll take a fun virtual tour of a road trip across America with many fun memories to make along the way! Contact us today for more information. Spaces are limited.

  • San Antonio Child Care: Prenatal Brain Development Stages

    As early as ten weeks of your pregnancy, your child has a brain capable of functioning. There will be millions of tiny neurons working and connecting together to form information. This is the start of your unborn child’s prenatal brain development. We explore the development of your child from this ten week stage up to birth, reviewing mental growth and what parts of the brain are first to activate.

    Light

    Once you have passed the stage of ten weeks, your child’s rapid mental growth is very apparent. The sensory development that occurs due to peak brain development is exemplified by your child’s ability to sense lights outside of the womb and react accordingly. Since your child is quite sensitive, it is good to have soft lights that are not harmful.

    Sound

    From about twelve weeks you can hear a very faint heartbeat of your child. Approximately seven weeks later, he or she can hear your heartbeat as the sensory brain begins to develop hearing. Your child is also affected by sounds outside the womb as well as being able to pick up and react to your heartbeat. It is essential to always be in a calm environment while pregnant as it will assist the baby’s development.

    Breathing

    By the time you are twenty-seven weeks pregnant, your baby is able to breath. Your child will open the mouth and take in amniotic fluid which prepares your child for breathing once born.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field in San Antonio specializes in understanding intricate child care. We understand how to maximize brain development in your child at all ages.

  • Teach Your Child the Value of Saving and Patience as Early as Preschool in San Antonio

    During the first six years of life, your child will be learning and developing the most. It is crucial that your child receives the best in their preschool learning experience. Skills that are learned at home are just as important as number and word skills taught in preschool. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field in San Antonio, Texas, explores the best ways to teach your preschooler about patience and saving money.

    Patience

    Patience is one of the best skills to teach your preschooler. There are many ways to teach a child this skill, but the best way is through modeling the behavior yourself. A parent should have a calm approach when dealing with a young child, and explain the particular situation while exhibiting patience. If your child begins to calm down, you should encourage him or her. By showing your child how to deal with situations with patience, you encourage this behavior.

    Saving

    Saving money is a valuable lesson, and it is important for your child to learn about this at as young an age as possible. The habit of saving money is linked heavily to patience, as your child will have to learn that he or she cannot always get what is wanted. It is a great idea to give your child an incentive to save. You could set up money jars for saving and spending so that your child starts to learn about managing money.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field assists parents with child care and preschool. We have trained staff on hand to help you. Contact us now to find out more about our curriculum and teachers or to enroll your child in our preschool program.

    san_antonio_tx_child_care

    One of the most important facets of child care is ensuring that once your infant is old enough to eat solid foods, generally around the age of four to six months, he or she gets a healthy, balanced diet. Between four months to one year of age, your child should still be receiving around twenty-eight ounces of breastmilk every day. Solid foods should only supplement the breast milk. Be sure to discuss any changes in your baby’s diet with your pediatrician first.

    Rice cereal

    Rice cereal should ideally be the first solid food that your infant receives. From the age of four to six months, you can offer your infant around two teaspoons of rice cereal every day. This should be mixed with either breast milk or baby formula. As your baby gets a little older, you can start introducing greater amounts of cereal into the diet.

    Fruit and vegetables

    Introducing your child to fruits and vegetables at a young age is a crucial part of infant care. Once your baby reaches around six months of age, you can introduce a quarter cup of fruit or vegetables into the diet over the course of the day. Start with more mild foods such as soft carrots, bananas or mashed potatoes.

    Other soft foods

    Once your child reaches the age of one year, you can start introducing more soft foods and proteins. For proteins, you can choose beef, chicken or any type of bean. You can also begin to introduce soft pasta, fish fingers, egg yolks or small amounts of cheese.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field understands that a well fed infant is a happy infant. For more information about our infant care program, contact us today.

    Considering brain development, we know that the first five years of your child’s development are crucial. The first brain cell is created only two days after conception. Two weeks after that, your child’s brain cells expand at a rate of 500,000 cells a minute. By the time a child is born, he or she will have 100 billion neurons of which 17% are activated. At the age of six years, 80 billion neurons will be active.

    Stimulation is the key to activating and supporting all areas of your child’s brain development. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field we are extremely proud to introduce our Brain Waves™ Curriculum to you. This program offers strategies to support the expansion of neural pathways associated with language, cognitive, physical and social-emotional progress .

    When it comes to entertaining your preschool child, fortunately, there are fun ways that you can play with your child that promote intellectual, social and/or emotional development. Your preschooler is generally excited to do almost anything, especially with you, so you have complete liberty to suggest activities that you will enjoy, too. Here are a few fun activities that you and your child can enjoy together.

    Sock puppets

    Sock puppets are an ideal way to teach your child about vital emotional and social concepts. These can be used to help teach difficult topics such as behavioral issues. Puppet play can also turn into a really fun event, such as creating a puppet show. To add to your child’s enjoyment of this activity, you can make the puppets together, and fashion them to look like characters from a favorite book or nursery rhyme.

    Preparing food and drink

    Although this may sound like a strange task to enjoy with your preschool child, with a little bit of imagination even preparing food can be an exciting activity. Because you always want your child to stay nourished, what better way to promote a healthy diet than with fun food? Consider cutting sandwiches into fun shapes or make green, pink or even purple colored pancakes. These activities are great for teaching basic concepts of color and shape.

    It is not necessary to buy games or watch television to keep your child entertained. Better to engage with them by finding out what kinds of activities you can enjoy together. Learning through fun truly is as easy as making apple pie.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field believes that a child learns best when he is having fun. This is why we offer our AdvancED accredited preschool program and exclusive fast track curriculum to help maximize your child’s brain development with fun, engaging activities.

    During your first month with your new infant, there are many new skills you will have to master while you are adapting to a whole new lifestyle. These skills range from feeding challenges and learning how to soothe your crying infant to surviving due to lack of sleep.

    Here are four tips to help get you through the first month:

    • Ask for help: Never be afraid to ask for help or advice when it comes to caring for a newborn. Nurses in the maternity ward, lactation specialists and even experienced family members and friends can help you with everything from breastfeeding to bathing your infant.
    • Start to set a routine: Discovering a routine that works for you and your child is a challenge and will take a few months to settle into, therefore the earlier you start, the better. Take note of feeding times and nap times as well as times in the day that your child is most active. From there you can start building a routine around these activities. Do not however, expect it to work right away, staying flexible is important. Once your infant and you get settled, a good routine is welcomed.
    • Take time to bond: Many new parents feel their lives are a whirlwind, so it is important to remember to take a deep breath and set some time aside for bonding. It is not only beneficial to your infant, but it also helps you relax and rejuvenate. Talking to your infant will help to boost their speech, language and brain development, while skin on skin contact is a great comfort for them. Infants thrive on this type of soothing, which is great for boosting emotional security.
    • Take shifts: Sleep is a luxury when you have a newborn, so it is recommended that you try to work out a system where moms, dads, partners and caregivers take specific shifts with your infant. Caring for your child on alternate nights or having weekend/weekday shifts work well and give everyone a chance for rest as well as bonding.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, we offer an innovative infant program for children aged six weeks and up. With a development orientated curriculum that includes infant sign language, story time, educational toys and daily exercises, your child will gain a firm footing for future learning while meeting essential milestones.

    At Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Liberty Field, children are given a safe and stimulating educational environment where they can learn about responsibility and consideration, and can learn how to become active members of society. In addition to these life skills, we promote physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth through an accredited pre-school program. While school has an essential role in a child's development, equally important are the routines and lessons pre-schoolers learn outside of the classroom. Here are some tips and advice for parents wanting to continue the learning experience at home.

    Simple tasks such as making their bed, picking-up after themselves, or setting the table can make a big impact on your child’s life. Instead of repeatedly reminding your child to complete these tasks, instead consider using a system of positive encouragement. Accomplishing these tasks on a daily or weekly basis isn’t just about contributing to home life, it also builds a lifelong sense of responsibility, helpfulness, and consideration for others. Knowing that a job has been done well, even if it's something small, develops a sense of self-worth and accomplishment, and shows children how they can be involved in something larger than themselves.

    A consistent approach to these tasks is best, rather than allowing your child to help sporadically. Repetition is a key element of learning at this developmental stage and age. While making chores fun is a great way to encourage involvement, allow children to express themselves, but also explain how they are helping you and why their contribution is important. A great idea is to build a "responsibility roster" with your pre-schooler and let them check-off each activity as it is completed. A small treat, some hugs or allowing them an activity they really enjoy will be a perfect reward!

    We value responsibility highly at our Learning Academy and strive to help children realize both their academic and social potential. We provide a stimulating environment for children, and we welcome the involvement of families.
