Welcome to Geared 4 Kids! A program geared toward the needs of the young, and parents that are not quite ready for their little ones to be cared for in a large group setting. We specialize in the care and education of children ages 18 months to 5 yrs. old. We place attention on kindergarten preparedness. We offer after school care for the children enrolled, reinforcing good homework ethics.
Geared 4 Kids offer parents the option of a small group size. Our small group enhances a sense of family and community. It fosters better social interaction among the children. The small group size promotes stability and emotional security to children. The teacher's have a better opportunity to create a learning plan "Geared" toward your child's needs. Their learning plan will challenge their strengths, and support the academic areas that require additional assistance.
Geared 4 Kids is unique in the fact that your child will have the same teacher until the next milestone (primary school) and they will be apart of a mixed- age group. Studies show a developmental advantage when children interact with peers above and below their age level. Older children have caring and helping behaviors toward younger children, and a sense of responsibility toward one another are fostered.
Although we specialize in kindergarten readiness, we realize that play is the primary context in which young children learn and grow. Therefore we consciously and lovingly created plenty of fun "Dramatic Play Centers" that honors children's play and learning. If you have a future Astronaut, then your child will love our "Space Center". Does your child love to draw? Then they will have plenty of practice drawing in our "Illustrator Corner". Does your child enjoy caring for animals, then they will love our "Veterinary Center". You may have a future Engineer, Architect or Zoologist. These are just a few of our Career centers. When children play in the dramatic play centers, they try on various roles. This type of play helps them process and understand their world. They discover what jobs are all about, and what makes our country work. They develop social skills and the ability to get along with others, while using their imagination and creativity.
