Learning Philosophy

Learning primarily occurs over five domains: cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and sensory. When "little learners" develop skills in one domain, learning occurs in other domains as well. At A Kids Gym Learning Academy, we recognize the value of cross-dimensional learning and provide an atmosphere for this to happen naturally. The classroom schedule allows ample time for a variety of both teacher- and "little learner" -directed activities. Learning centers open the doors of learning, and allows each "little learner" to explore and play. Early literacy skills are enhanced through story-time and small teacher-directed activities. All curriculum follows the National Association for the Education of Young "little learners" guidelines of Developmentally Appropriate Practice. Your ‘little learner’s’ learning will be maximized as we provide a loving, supportive environment.

Curriculum Goals

Our goal is to inspire in each ‘little learner’ a lifelong love of learning. We strive to equip every ‘little learner’ with the social, emotional, physical and mental capacities they will need to become a successful student. Our curriculum focuses on whole-child learning, and is based on Developmentally Age Appropriate Activities built specifically for each ‘little learners’. Whole child learning incorporates all domains of learning into each activity, while we also incorporate access to their large gross motor skills development through our incorporated gymnastics component.

Security and safety

Children security is one our primary focuses.  There is one entry and exit point, where all guests will be checked-in and checked-out at our front desk.  Children will be permitted to leave the facility only with the adult who brought them, or with specific caregivers identified on a child’s database report that is accessed at check-out.  The front reception area and all emergency exits are video monitored and recorded. Thank you for understanding.

GUidance and DiScipline

We strongly believe that positive discipline begins well before a "little learner" ’s behavior ever exceeds acceptable limits. From the onset, age-appropriate behaviors are identified and clearly communicated. Teachers discuss sharing, taking turns, and appropriate play limits with each ‘little learner’ . It is essential that we maintain an environment that encourages "little learners" to explore, take risks, and make mistakes that are so vital in the learning process. To do this, a teacher’s priority becomes “catching a "little learner" doing something right,” and then praising that effort with smiles, hugs and attention. A teacher’s job also consists of identifying potential trouble spots and eliminating them. With proactive planning and communication on a daily basis, we try to instill a positive sense of responsibility and accountability in each "little learner" . Clear limits give "little learners" confidence, and allow them to successfully interact in the classroom environment. 

When inappropriate behavior does occur, it is important for a ‘little learner’ to know why that behavior is inappropriate. The teacher will immediately communicate to the child and redirect that behavior in a positive direction. These communications are handled respectfully and firmly, and are NEVER intended to embarrass or belittle a ‘little learner’ . Specific behaviors are identified as inappropriate, never the ‘little learner’ him/herself. This approach will affirm the value of each individual ‘little learner’. Time-away is used as a last resort, with emphasis on removing the ‘little learner’ from the situation and doing something else. A Kids Gym will NOT permit and will NOT use any abusive disciplinary actions including, but not limited to, spanking, grabbing, shaking, yelling, or embarrassing a "little learner’ . A Kids Gym reserves the right to discontinue enrollment, with or without notice, based on a ‘little learner’s’ behavior.
