Educational Practices for the Toddlers at Kid Academy

Kid Academy is one of the top learning centers for toddlers in Gulfport, MS. Toddlers enjoy their time with us as we start with daily devotion, the Pledge of Allegiance, and our Morning Review. All of these daily activities will be taught to the toddlers during the start of the school year. Included in our day-to-day activities are learning educational songs, dance, and stories to introduce the theme for the day. These interactive activities are all planned to make an impression on the kids and for them to learn new things each day. Flash cards are also used to recall numbers, alphabets, shapes, and colors. This is a fun way to test toddlers on what they remember and what may need to be focused on. Our art and crafts activities are also very hands on as it allows the toddlers to visualize and exercise their motor skills through creating art. These activities also incorporate numbers, letters, and shapes. Finger painting, sponge painting, and learning with the senses are some of the activities that are done daily. Toddlers have the chance to experiment with different types of textures and colors, which will help their mental development and learning throughout their life.
