    Your child is growing and taking steps toward real communications that you can understand. You have endured months of babbling, cooing, and cute sounds but now your child is starting to learn the first words in a soon-to-be massive vocabulary. What can you do to enhance this learning in child care, preschool, and at home? Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Clermont, Florida explains what you can do to promote effective language skills.

    Do not be scared to use big words

    Natural instinct may tell you that using big words around your child is a waste of time but do not underestimate the capabilities of a young child. You may be surprised when your child begins using large words with multiple syllables in sentences. He or she will be able to quickly pick up why, when, and how the word is used. The larger your child’s vocabulary is at an early age, the more likely he or she is to succeed in numerous school subjects.

    Child care offers a vast vocabulary

    Child care and preschool environments are excellent for language skills as they allow your child to be exposed to multiple words from a variety of people.

    We offer an exclusive Brain WavesTM Curriculum that ensures an education which caters to the physical, emotional and intellectual development of your child. If you are looking to give your child the greatest opportunities in life then our programs are ideal for you. Contact us to find out more on our specialized child care services that exceed the limitations of typical child care environments.

  • The best math educational apps for your Clermont preschooler

    Living in this advanced age of technology, we have an abundance of power at our fingertips that we’ve never experienced before. Sometimes we become complacent, and forget that this technology is not just for convenience. It can, in fact, be utilized for far greater purposes such as math education learning apps for preschoolers. We will take a look at some of the advantages that our technology can provide to your child, as he or she develops through the early years of child care.

    Mobile math

    One of the most beneficial aspects about math apps for a preschooler is that they are designed for mobile devices, such as androids, iPhones and tablets. This allows your child to enjoy learning wherever he or she goes. Furthermore it can keep a child entertained, while you are busy with other duties.

    Inexpensive tutoring

    Most of the effective math apps can be accessed for free, or at a minimal charge. These apps are also frequently updated with new graphics and challenges to help your child develop fundamental skills, needed in school. This allows you to have more free time, while your child is entertained, but is learning at the same time.

    It is understandable why parents enjoy the vast benefits of effective math applications. Keep in mind that too much screen time is not good for any child. A child should be encouraged to enjoy other activities, like playing outdoors.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Clermont, Florida offers excellent child care and preschool facilities that utilize the latest and greatest technologies such as math apps, smart boards and much more. We can ensure optimal learning at all times, in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. Contact us if you would like more details on our AdvancED™ accredited program and how it can give your child an academic edge.

    Mothers are naturally concerned whether a child is getting enough milk during breast feeding. Both mother and child are unique, which means that the breastfeeding experience is specific to each mother. Therefore, there are a variety of problems that a nursing mother could experience. This article is provided to assist mothers in asking themselves simple questions, focused on ensuring optimal childcare during breast feeding.

    Is your child swallowing?

    When breastfeeding your child, you will notice that there are three phases to the feeding process. The first phase is latching, in which your child will firmly grasp the nipple with his or her mouth. Once this phase is complete, your child will start alternating between the other two phases, sucking and swallowing the milk. The sucking can be felt and seen as the child performs a slow, pulling motion. The child will then alternate to swallowing, which is not as easy to feel. You should notice that the child’s jaw drops to allow for swallowing. Determining that all three phases occur, until the child is finished, ensures that the needed amount of milk is ingested throughout the breastfeeding experience.

    Does your child seem satisfied?

    After breastfeeding check to see if you can tell if the child is satisfied. This will be quite obvious as the child will get sleepy. A burping process should follow, to ensure the air swallowed along with the milk is released. If you can observe that the child is satisfied, then you have done a great job and your child is well-fed.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Clermont, Florida goes the extra mile to ensure that your child receives everything necessary both at school and at home. If you are looking for ideal infant care services, please contact us today and find out more about our services. We are always excited to hear from new parents.

    Being a new parent is stressful. At Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Clermont, we understand that finding ways to manage this new life is easier with up-to-date technology. Since everyone is now so comfortable with "apps" we found four useful applications that can help busy moms. These applications can be used on a smartphone or computer.

    Mom Maps:

    Mom maps allows moms, or dads, to find nearby parks, restaurants and playgrounds where you can spend quality time outdoors with your child. This app can be accessed from your smartphone. You no longer have to worry about finding fun places to take your child.

    WebMD Mobile:

    When an infant becomes ill, we know that every parent wants to research their child's symptoms as much as possible. WebMD Mobile allows a parent to check their child's symptoms in order to gain information on possible answers as to the cause of your child's illness. This application also comes with other useful tools. However, be sure that you do not rely on this application for medical decision making. There is no replacement for your doctor's expertise.

    Our Kids:

    There is nothing as precious for a parent as watching their child learn and grow. You can now keep a personal journal of your child's milestones using this application, which allows you to capture your child's special moments on the phone, as they happen. This is an easy and simple app to use that will provide many special moments.

    Emeals:

    This application makes every day meal planning easier and quicker. You can plan a meal complete with recipes for your family size and with your preferred grocery store. This will make it much easier for you to manage daily meals for the entire family with less stress.

  • The role of nutrition for brain development in infants and toddlers

    Children's brains develop rapidly, especially in the first five years. At birth, a child has 100 billion neurons, of which only 17% are activated. Therefore, your child's educational future depends on activating the other 83% before the neurons die because of non-connections. During a child's early years, there is a short window of opportunity in which these neurons can be activated.  It is during this critical time that your child will learn how to walk, talk, and relate to other people, laying the foundations for future academic and career success. This is why it is important that children get proper nutrition which is focused on supporting brain development.

    Starting solid foods for infants

    At the age of four to six months, your infant starts to eat solid foods. There has recently been a shift away from cereals made with rice towards more complete, nutritious foods. Mashed avocados, for example, are excellent brain foods, since they contain essential fatty acids like Omega-3, are cholesterol-free, and contain more than 20 helpful nutrients. Pureed blueberries are also a great choice because they are tasty and filled with flavonoids that are good for your infant's eyes, brain, and urinary system. The healthiest vegetables and fruits are organically grown, so head to the downtown Clermont Farmers Market to pick up your fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Feeding your toddler

    Fish such as tuna, salmon, and sardines are filled with the same essential fatty acids that are also found in avocados. Grilled or roasted fish served with vegetables for dinner or a  tuna sandwich on whole-wheat bread for lunch are both healthy choices. Proteins and vitamins in eggs are also good for total-body health, so scrambled, boiled or poached eggs will make a good breakfast. Toddlers love the taste and texture of Greek yogurt so this makes for an easily digested, nutrient-dense snack filled with protein, calcium, and vitamins.

    Feeding your preschooler

    Preschool children should eat the same foods as toddlers but can expand on their diet by exploring new flavors and textures. Dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale are super-foods packed full of vitamins and nutrients. If your child is a fussy eater, make a brightly colored berry smoothie with a handful of kale in the mix and your child will have a tasty drink packed full of nutrients.

    Healthy brain development is not just about nutrition.  Having an active learning environment that promotes the right kinds of stimulation is also essential. At Kids 'R' Kids of Clermont in Orlando, Florida, you can enroll your child in the recognized, scientifically developed Brain Waves Curriculum, which supports essential neural pathways necessary for cognitive, emotional and social development in children ages six weeks to five years.
