Extracurricular Programs

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wake Forest understands a parent’s desire for their child to be involved in extracurricular activities, but time is often limited. That’s why we offer several highly specialized programs at our location once a week.

Included in Your Tuition:

Spanish Classes

For our early preschool-prekindergarten students, we provide Spanish classes! We feel blessed to have such a diverse family representation at Kids `R` Kids. For that reason, we introduce your child to many different languages throughout their years with us. Kids `R` Kids offers our students a weekly Spanish lesson provided by a visiting professional who specializes in Spanish and communication to our parents through monthly Spanish newsletters.

Also, each classroom has a circle time box filled with teaching aids representing Spanish. Teachers introduce the days of the week, counting, basic greetings, colors and more. There’s no better time to learn another language than during the early childhood years.

Physical Education

Our PE program offers our students a variety of health and wellness education topics ranging from balance and coordination to healthy eating habits; through interactive games and hands on examples. Our PE instructor, in combination with your child’s classroom teachers, provides a safe and enthusiastic environment to promote overall health, self control, motor development, and energy exertion.

When students receive effective PE they do better physically, mentally, and emotionally. Effective physical education assists students to better focus on their academics, develop better emotional balance, and reduce risk of obesity or future illness.

STEAM

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. It allows students to connect their learning in these critical areas together with arts practices, elements, design principles, and standards to provide the whole pallet of learning at their disposal. STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry, and innovation.

Our specialized STEAM instructor works with students in small groups and 1 on 1 to expose your child to varying experiments that build on each other throughout the week. A brand new objective arises each week to ensure your child stays engaged and actively learning .
