We provide weekly language and music instruction in each of our classrooms – from infants through Pre-K. We believe that both are intergral to the full educational experience and want to provide the very best for our children. It is proven that the young child`s mind is best suited to learning multiple languages and that music is an incredible tool that enhances brain development.
We are excited to have Amanda Martin, MT-BC, who is the owner of Music Therapy Services of Athens, with us as our weekly classroom music instructor.

Our native Spanish language instructor, Nicole Cruz, has been a language teacher of adults and children for several years, teaching and improving Spanish pronunciation. Her Bachelor of Science in Speech and Hearing Sciences helps children to learn and fix frequent phonetic difficulties related to the acquisition of a second language. The Spanish Program at Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Watkinsville offers a rich curriculum tailored specifically to a young child’s ability to learn through play and music. Children learn languages through interactive games, puppets, singing and role-playing. These activities are fun for the children while also stimulating their cognitive development.
