Programs

At every stage of your child's development, Kids R Kids O'Fallon provides new and challenging ways to expand each child's mind and his or her imagination. Our oversized classrooms include developmentally appropriate learning centers which are designed using our Kids R Kids curriculum accredited by AdvancED. As theorized by the renowned psychologist, Jean Piaget, children learn best through play, so we've developed hands-on learning experiences for all levels of learning. Some enhancements to our accredited curriculum include STEAM Ahead and Brain Waves. These additional elements to our already extensive curriculum put a large focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math lessons. We also supplement learning in our center through Smartboard lessons, Spanish, and physical education.
