Some parents will be looking for a new childcare center for the new year. Even if you are remaining with your current childcare center, you might want to make a resolution for 2013 to be more involved in knowing what your child is learning each day. Busy parents often do not take the time to read the daily or weekly activities that your child's teacher/caregiver posts on a bulletin board. Paperwork with notices of daily or weekly activities that is sent home often goes unread. The Kiddie Academy in the Lakewood Ranch area of Sarasota has a great online tool for parents to check in during the week to keep up with the skills children are learning.
Parents with children who are enrolled in the Kiddie Academy have access with a username and password to Kiddie Academy elearning in the parent section of the center's site. each part of the curriculum is featured with language arts, math, science, art, music, health and safety, social studies, and foreign language. You may choose the subject area of interest to learn about the skills that your child is learning. Having online access to this information is very helpful to busy parents. You might even want to do some of the activities at home to extend your child's early learning.
The Kiddie Academy is located at 4225 Concept Ct. in the Lakewood Ranch area of Sarasota. Give the director a call at 941-932-8516 to schedule a tour for the new year.
