A Smart Start For Your Child’s Future

      Early care and education can have a positive effect on many aspects of children’s development, including the language, literacy, mathematics, executive functioning, and social-emotional competencies needed for a smooth transition into kindergarten and later life success.
      The learning that takes place before kindergarten is crucial to creating school readiness. We believe every child deserves the best possible start.
That is why Just 4 Kids Child Care provides a total package of quality education and childcare to make sure every child has the skills and knowledge they need for school and beyond.

Communication & Language

Communication & Language involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing their wants, needs and feelings. Literacy encourages children to link sounds and letters and begin to read and write.

Outside Play

Outside Play allows children to get fresh air and explore their environment more. They can fill their lungs with clean air and use all of their senses to appreciate the colors, different noises, the sense of space and of scale.

Dance Classes

Dance Classes can have powerful benefits for your child and nurture your child’s talent and build self-esteem. Creative movement can positively impact a child’s physical, emotional, and mental health. Only with Fantasy Dance Studio, your little dancer will learn the basics of dancing; develop balance, coordination, and simple dance technique in a fun environment. Moreover, all the children will have the opportunity to perform at Fantasy Dance Studio Annual Concerts.

Mathematics

Mathematics encourages opportunities to develop and improve counting skills - forward and backward; understanding and using numbers; calculating simple addition and subtraction problems and exploring shapes, volume, space and measures.

Arts & Craft

Painting, coloring, sculpting, drawing, and other forms of creative art are an important part of the child care curriculum. Creating art supports young children’s development across several different domains. Using art tools helps children develop small muscle coordination and control. Children can practice thinking skills by experimenting with color, texture, and design. While children draw, paint, glue and mold things the way they see, they learn to express their individuality through their work.

Musical Theater

Musical Theater is a great way for young people to build their self-confidence, self-expression, teaches teamwork and awaken an interest in art and creativity. The class also develops memory, movement and improves their language skills. Therefore, "Chunga-Changa" Children’s Musical Theater is the best choice for our kids. Besides teaching theater arts and gaining knowledge of Russian Fairy tales and songs, it will help them gain the ability to combat the fear of public speaking performing on stage and in public.

Science

Our Science and Social Studies Curriculum helps children understand the world they live in and inspires curiosity. They will learn to ask questions, make predictions, test, make observations, talk about their findings and make conclusions.

Gymnastics & Yoga

Our children’s health and well-being are our priorities which is why we start the day with Gymnastics & Yoga classes. The benefits of Gymnastics for kids are truly amazing! Early gymnastics classes increase self-esteem, helps to create discipline, it’s fun, develops strong and healthy bones, increases coordination and much more. Yoga is becoming increasingly popular among children, as well. Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them.
