    Hurricane Harvey & Helping Your Child Cope With Natural Disasters

    On August 25th, Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas coast, bringing powerful winds and heavy rainfall with it. After days of non-stop rain, Houston and many other regions were left in shambles, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to walk away from what was once their home. While this devastation undoubtedly affects many people’s jobs, daily routines, and mental health, it is important to remember that children are affected as well.

    It can be difficult for young children to grasp natural disasters and why and how they occur. Children cope with events such as this differently depending on their age, but they are all susceptible to its negative impact. Whether your child was directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey or not, these tips for coping with natural disasters are sure to help your family move forward no matter what you face in the future.

    Talk About It

    One of the best ways to help your child process what has happened is by discussing the events that have occurred. Explain the disaster in logical terms so your child can fully understand why or how things have changed. Most importantly, allow your child to express his or her emotions about what has taken place, and listen to their worries or fears. By creating a safe space for your child to share their feelings, they will be less likely to bottle up or hold onto any negative emotions. A wonderful resource on how to discuss natural disasters with children can be found in this Sesame Street episode, where Big Bird’s friends help him rebuild his nest after a storm.

    Maintain A Routine

    Your child can hold onto a sense of normalcy by maintaining their typical routine in whatever way possible. Try to stick with their normal bed/wake up time in order to ensure they’re getting enough sleep. Allow them time to learn and play, and stick with any rules you would enforce on a daily basis. Many parents feel the need to coddle children in the midst of a disaster, but sticking to a routine can provide a sense of safety and security.

    Be Patient

    Remember – each child processes natural disasters differently. While one child may appear totally unaffected, another could display symptoms of anxiety or even depression. Be patient as your little one copes with how their life has changed, and know that it could take weeks, months, or even years for them to fully recover. Love, comfort, and patience go a long way when helping your child move past a difficult time.

    Would you like to help Kids ‘R’ Kids employees who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey? Simply visit our  GoFundMe link and make a donation. It is our hope to raise $100,000 or more for all staff members and teachers whose homes, families, and livelihood have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

    The foundation of a child's success in school is laid during the early preschool years. It is crucial that this foundation be the strongest possible. How well a child reads directly affects his/her success in school and in life since this ability opens the doors to all knowledge of the world. Our program places a very strong emphasis on working with the students to have them start reading at as early an age as possible. We frequently hear from our graduates' parents that their children are the most advanced readers in their respective Kindergarten classes. The activities below start with our youngest students and continue through Pre-K.

    Nursery: We begin teaching baby sign language to give children a method of communication before verbal skills develop. Teachers frequently read books to children, emphasizing the importance of positive interaction between children and adults and developing a love of reading. Teachers constantly talk to the babies, giving them new vocabulary. Infants listen and eventually try to repeat words they hear in the classroom. Printed words are introduced throughout the Nursery, introducing the children to the concept of letters.

    Toddlers/Twos: Sign language use becomes more frequent and reciprocal. Children begin naming and pointing to familiar objects in books, showing the beginning of understanding connection between pictures in books and real-life objects. Children act out things they see or hear read aloud in books. Students select their own books and frequently ask for them to be read over and over. They learn the alphabet song and begin to talk about starting sounds of familiar objects. Instruction in Mandarin Chinese begins in the older toddler class, where familiar songs are used to teach new words and sounds. Children recognize their names on cubbies and begin to identify the letters in their name. Children are encouraged to engage in conversations with each other. While not yet completely verbal, teachers can encourage conversation by asking open-ended questions that require more than a yes or no answer while playing in a center with the children. Play props are provided to stimulate this. The teacher may also model conversation for non-verbal children.

    Threes: Zoophonics, a curriculum for teaching recognition of upper and lower case letters and the corresponding sounds using animal characters, songs and movements, is introduced. Children begin listening more carefully to stories and make predictions about what they think will happen. Students use printed visual cues and some basic sight words are introduced. Books are integrated across the curriculum in all areas - math, science, literacy, social-emotional, etc. Interactive writing also begins at this age. Children dictate words to the teacher, talk about experiences, draw pictures, and write letters. Children are encouraged to engage in conversations with each other as they play in a learning center. Imaginary play where children assign roles for engaging in play is common at this age. For example, in the Home Living Center, the children might re-enact a family dinner with each child assigned the role of a family member as they plan and act out a dinner scenario. Children at this age (as well as Pre-K) also enjoy conducting puppet shows for each other using the classroom puppet theater and themed puppets - or making their own puppets - which involves imaginary play and storytelling.

    Pre-K: Parents commit to reading to their child a certain number of days per week, and students earn recognition for reading logs. Children practice reading using predictable readers based on word families. These go home daily with the children in their literacy pouch so that parents can also help their students practice at home. Twice a week, parent volunteers read one-on-one with children at the beginning of the Pre-K day. Children begin putting sounds together to create words, and reading comprehension emerges. Students use emerging writing/spelling skills to write descriptions and captions on their artwork.

    It’s your child’s first educational milestone – her preschool graduation! As you take hundreds of pictures, you can’t help but wipe away happy tears from your eyes. Your little one is growing up, and quickly! But is she ready for kindergarten?

    Many parents of young children struggle with anxiety when it comes to their child’s educational and social preparedness for the next grade level. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of a new school, new teachers and new expectations for learning. You may be asking, “Does my child know all that she needs to know?” “Will she handle the transition well?” “How can I prepare her best for kindergarten?” To help you determine if your child is ready to step out of the preschool classroom and enter kindergarten, we’ve prepared a checklist for you. Use this checklist as a tool to test whether your child has mastered the skills necessary to step into kindergarten equipped for success. But, don’t worry too much if your child doesn’t get an A+ on the test. Progress is just as important as competence!

  • Roswell, GA Daycare: Transportation Safety

    As the weather heats up again this summer, there will undoubtedly be tragic stories of children left behind in hot cars and buses.

    As the weather heats up again this summer, there will undoubtedly be tragic stories of children left behind in hot cars and buses. These stories are all the more crushing due to the preventable nature of such accidents. At Kids 'R' Kids East Roswell Preschool, we take transportation safety seriously all year long; with summer camp and so many field trips on the horizon, we wanted to remind our families of our bus safety policies.

    All of our buses, both our large school-sized bus and our two mini-buses, are inspected daily by our bus drivers prior to transporting children. They also undergo a professional inspection annually. There are seat belts on all of our buses for teachers and children. Every staff member involved in transportation, from drivers to directors to teachers, is required to complete a 2-hour biannual transportation safety course. All of our staff members are also trained in first aid, CPR, AED, and fire safety. Children between the ages of 4 and 5 must be transported on our big bus, which is rated for safe transport of children of this age, or, if they ride on one of the mini-buses, must ride in a secured age-appropriate booster seat.

    Children are checked in as they board our bus by a teacher who makes sure to check off the child's face with the name called. Children are then checked off in the same manner when they arrive to their destination. Once all children have been checked off the bus, the bus will be checked a minimum of two times to make sure there are no children left behind - once by the bus driver or supervising teacher and once by a second administrator or teacher.

    Teachers and bus drivers carry a cell phone on board the bus which is only used for emergency communication. Each bus is equipped with a fully stocked First Aid Kit. Bus routes are planned ahead of time and details left at the school so that the whereabouts of each bus are always known. 

    We know that our families trust us with their children's safety and wellbeing, and we take that responsibility very seriously both in our facility and on our buses.

    As the grass dries out and the weather gets warmer, take your children outside to run around, play, and soak up the sunshine. There are many options for outdoor activities – but some of them take a little bit more planning and creativity. Here are a few outdoor activities that require very minimal planning and preparation.

    Whatever you choose to do with your children, remember that quality time spent with them is more important than the activity that you actually end up doing!

    Plan a scavenger hunt.

    Before you go out to your favorite park or nature area, make a list of items for your child to find or do when you get there. It can be as easy as “Find a tree with flowers on it,” “Find a dandelion,” or “Do 10 jumping jacks!” The goal is to keep your child occupied and active! If you want to encourage some healthy competition, set a timer and reward the child who gets done with the scavenger hunt first!

    Pitch a tent and have a “camp out” in the backyard.

    If you have a backyard, take your kids outside for a “camp out.” Pitch a tent, bring out some sandwiches and lemonade, and pretend you’re in the middle of a forest. When it gets dark, look for shooting stars, and maybe even tell spooky stories!

    Spending time outdoors before it gets unbearably hot is a great option for some quality family time. Even if you have little ones, you can make an outdoor adventure a day that everyone enjoys. The best way to ensure a fun experience for your family is by planning ahead. Any time you leave the house with your kiddos, a great rule of thumb is to keep the outing as simple as possible. Cramming too many activities in to one afternoon can lead to grumpy children and an exhausted parent.

    1. Location, Location, Location – In the spirit of keeping it simple, have your outdoor adventure on familiar territory. If you are comfortable with the area, it will take a load off of your mind and allow you to enjoy the day more freely. When your kids are older or whenever you are more comfortable to visit a new place, venture out to a local park or zoo for your picnic festivities.

    2. Bring a Friend – Since toddlers and preschoolers always seem to have an inexhaustible amount of energy, it’s a great idea to collaborate with another family so that your children can play together. Not only will your children have a ton of fun together, you will also enjoy some adult conversation while they play – everybody wins! The great outdoors is the perfect place to allow your children to use their imagination, and bringing a friend is sure to create new, unexplored adventures involving space ships and castles and who knows what else!

    Earth Day is coming up and it’s a great chance to teach your child about the importance of taking care of the environment. There are several ways you can incorporate earth-friendly habits in to your life and one of the easiest is through recycling.

    The first step to teaching your child about recycling is making it a fun experience! Since recycling involves sorting and containers, it’s the perfect set-up for a basketball game. Line up your recycling bins and have your children practice tossing paper, cardboard, and other lightweight recyclables in to the bin. If you have more than one child, try assigning a particular recyclable item to each child and have them go on a “treasure hunt” around the house and neighborhood looking for his/her specific recyclable item. Reward their efforts with a pre-determined prize (ice cream cone, day at the park, etc.) if they reach a certain goal.

    There are generally two kinds of parents – those who “wing it” and those who are particular about every particular thing. The particular parents tend to care about structure and are often strict about their child’s routines. The parents who “wing it” tend to respond to all their child’s demands in the moment and are flexible with routines.

    While there is room for parents to be flexible about establishing boundaries and guidelines for their toddlers, routines help toddlers feel comfortable and secure in knowing there is certainty and predictability in their lives. As toddlers grow and develop, they need a strong sense of safety. Routines help toddlers learn how to interact with the world by doing the same things over and over again. The bottom line is that patterns help toddlers learn.

    When there is routine and structure in the home, toddlers tend to be more calm and relaxed. Changes to schedules and routines can be particularly stressful for young children. It is not uncommon for a child who is used to mommy putting him to sleep every night to throw a fuss when the new babysitter tries to do the same thing. Changes in routine make toddlers uncertain and scared because they notice when something is different. Read the full article here: The Benefits of Routine for Toddlers

    When a child is born she immediately begins the process of learning and adapting to the world. Many skills come very instinctively to a child such as swallowing, eating, laughing, and crying. For the majority of a child’s life, however, she will need the help of others around her to explain important concepts and demonstrate healthy social skills.

    One of the most effective ways to establish a solid educational foundation at an early age is by enrolling your child in an elite preschool or childcare facility. Learning can also be enhanced and encouraged at home as well and parental involvement plays a key role in making this happen. From making conversation to including your child in household chores, there are many ways you can invite your child into a learning experience.

    Taking the time to understand what your child’s preschool teacher is teaching in class can also help you find creative ways to continue the learning at home. Your child will take notice of your interest in her education and may even find herself enjoying school more when you are excited about it too!

    Understanding and avoiding problematic childhood allergies is an important topic for all parents. From food allergies, to bee stings and reactions to cat or dog dander, allergic reactions can range from just an annoyance to potentially life-threatening events for young children. Allergies can remain dormant for months or years prior to becoming active and causing a wide variety of childhood medical issues.

    It is important to realize that if a parent or grandparent suffered from certain allergies, it is likely their child or grandchild will be more susceptible to those same triggers. This article will offer parents and teachers tips as to how they can help lessen or prevent the development of childhood allergies.

    Food allergies

    Nationwide, an estimated three million young children suffer from one or more food allergies. The most common of these are a negative reaction to nuts, particularly peanuts, eggs, soy, shellfish, and wheat. How can parents prevent such allergies from manifesting? Avoiding food allergies completely is not truly possible, especially when there is a genetic link to a parent or other relative who suffers with problematic triggers. However, a parent can pinpoint and identify allergens by slowly introducing their child to potentially problematic foods into his or her diet. When doing this, you are taking a proactive step prior to an allergic reaction in public or at school that might be harmful or life threatening.

    Nasal allergies

    Childcare experts cite nasal allergies as being the most common. Common violators include dust mites, mold, and pet dander. Parents need to be vigilant against potential sources of nasal allergies by dusting and vacuuming often, cleaning “dust collectors” such as window blinds, keeping pet dander controlled, and having the air duct system cleaned. Symptoms of nasal allergies include a runny or itchy nose, frequent sneezing, and red eyes.

    The childcare team at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of East Roswell, Georgia, invites you to visit our preschool facilities that complement our acclaimed educational programs. Contact us today to schedule a visit and see what we can offer your child as the first step for the best start towards lifelong academic success.

    Every parent will have to deal with a whining toddler at some point in their lives. This incoherent, incessant noise can be difficult to deal with, but there are ways to cope. Toddlers whine when they are hungry, angry, bored or tired. We will take a closer look at a few of the ways to deal with your preschooler’s or toddlers whining habit.

    Have patience

    Toddlers can experience frustration during the developmental years. Whether your child is hungry, tired or feeling ill, he or she simply does not possess the required vocabulary to articulate these feelings and thoughts. Parents can help by setting reasonable expectations. Have patience, use your parenting intuition, and remain calm when dealing with the situation and you will often resolve it fairly quickly.

    Do not give in

    Once your child gets a bit older and is able to articulate feelings of anger and frustration, it is important that you never give in to whining. If you give in, you are setting a dangerous precedent for your child by acknowledging that the longer they whine the more likely the situation will resolve in his or her favor.

    Equip your child with the necessary skills to deal with frustration

    Teach your child the proper way to deal with feelings of anger and frustration. This is important, as it will help your preschooler understand and recognize how he or she feels. For instance, if your child cannot play outside because it is raining, explain the situation and offer alternative activities which can be done indoors.

    Preschool age children often misbehave towards either their parents or their teachers in preschool. The way to combat such situations is to understand the reasoning behind a child’s rebellion. Understanding the cause of a child’s actions often helps a parent or teacher deal with the misbehavior appropriately.

    Understand what a child needs

    Misbehavior in a child can stem from a vast number of different factors with lack of attention being the most common. Other factors may include mere emotional outbursts from a child, a lack of confidence to perform tasks with independence, or just being tired and cranky. By identifying the correct source, you can determine the appropriate response. If the misbehavior happens at day care, many facilities are not equipped with the right teachers who have the type of training necessary to handle these types of behavior. A child in preschool who misbehaves needs the correct attention that only a properly trained child care professional can administer. You do not want an untrained person improperly handling your child.

    The right stuff

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of East Roswell, Georgia we strive to ensure each child has individual attention from a trained educator who can understand and manage a child’s misbehavior. Our teachers are highly trained in both education and in socio-emotional behaviors in young children. Our preschool fast track curriculum along with our highly skilled teacher’s mean that we are far better equipped to deal with a child’s misbehavior.

    Our AdvancED approach curriculum offers your child the opportunity to learn and explore, while enjoying playtime in a safe and comfortable environment. Make the best investment for your child today, and enroll him or her in our Learning Academy in East Roswell. For more information, contact us here.

  • Alpharetta Child Care: How you can promote brain development through play and nurture

    At birth, your infant has undeveloped potential and will start a journey that should stimulate the brain to develop vital neural synapses. These synapses play a vital role in developing language, reasoning, planning and social skills. To ensure that this development progresses as strongly as possible, engage your child in the following brain boosting activities at home:

    1. Interact using language: Whether you sing to your child, imitate their noises, or talk your way through changing their diaper, using language is key to brain stimulation. This helps infants to realize that language is integral to the world and and an important interaction.

    2. Encourage movement: Infants are just beginning to learn the motor skills essential to everything from walking to holding a crayon. Helping your child to clap or high-five, and responding positively to all the gestures he or she makes are all great ways to teach your infant motor skills and encourage physical growth.

    3. Sights, sounds, smells, textures and tastes: Your child will use all five senses to explore the world around them, and every new stimulus encourages brain growth. Age-appropriate toys with different textures, shapes and colors help infants to explore different sensations. Visits to new locations, such as parks, shops or homes of loved ones provide an infant with new sights, sounds and smells to process. If you are looking for great educational toys that are ideal for your child's age, try the Lakeshore store. This online store has been providing educational toys to children for over 60 years.

    4. Repeat: Children learn through repetition, so it is important that you repeat positive interaction and activity with your infant whether it is playing with a soft toy, playing peek-a-boo, or even saying your child's name. Do these things over again several times to reinforce the senses. It is also important, however, to know when to stop to avoid over stimulating your child. The limit for your child will be dependent on their unique personality and the activity, but signs to watch for are looking away or becoming restless.

    If you are looking for a child care center that understands the importance of early childhood development and shares the same goals for helping your child to reach his or her potential, visit Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of East Roswell in Alpharetta, Georgia. At our academy, we exceed the standards of traditional daycares by providing exceptional support to parents as well as their children.

    childcare_alpharetta_gaKids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of East Roswell employ childcare professionals who are trained by the Child Care Education Institute (CCEI) and through the Kids 'R' Kids Corporate Academy Training Facility. CCEI is the leading distance training provider in the childcare industry and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council.

    When it comes to infant care, we take things seriously. We offer daily feedback and weekly lesson plans to keep parents informed. Parents often worry about the health of their infants and ask us for advice. Our academy has strict policies regarding the health and safety of our children, and each member of our staff is required to undergo training in Health, Safety, and Infectious Disease Control. We always recommend that parents seek the advice of their pediatrician when it comes to any question about their child's health.

    Many of our parents have recently become interested in natural solutions to some of the more minor childhood ailments, so have compiled a few common natural remedies that you might be interested in. While natural remedies are not the solution for every illness and you should always consult your pediatrician before beginning any treatment with your child, it is helpful to know about alternative options, such as the following:

    • Saline drops: These drops help to loosen mucus and clear clogged nasal passages. This is an affordable alternative to alleviate stuffy noses and one which Alpharetta pharmacies stock.

    • Fluids: For older infants extra fluids, especially water, help reduce the density of mucus and keeps the baby hydrated, which is important during times of illness. If the body is dehydrated, it cannot function properly and will not be able to fight off harmful germs.

    • Humidifiers: These useful appliances moisturize the air in the room which helps to keep mucus from drying.  It also alleviates coughing and sneezing. Be sure to follow the safety precautions listed on the instructions to avoid possible injury.

    • Essential oils: Adding a small amount of essential oil, such as eucalyptus, to the humidifier's water also helps to ease breathing. Ask your pediatrician or pharmacist for advice when choosing an essential oil.

    • Rest: Be sure your child gets as much rest as possible. Sleeping rejuvenates the body and helps it heal. It will also help with irritability, as babies are more temperamental when they do not feel well.

    • Monitor fevers: Monitor your child's fever so that it does not exceed acceptable levels as directed by your pediatrician. Try not to dress or cover the baby in too many layers, as this will increase body temperature. You can place your baby in a tub with lukewarm water to help reduce a fever and use a sponge to run water over their body. Older infants can suck on something cold, like ice pops, but only under adult supervision.

    Kids 'R' Kids of East Roswell in Alpharetta, Georgia, always puts a child's needs first. Parents can rest assured that our trained staff and our facility is adequately equipped to assist in the event that your infant becomes sick at school.
