our vision

To provide quality child care, preschool, and kindergarten programs that build strong brains necessary for lifelong success.

Brain Metric Assessment

This executive function assessment is implemented on an ongoing basis at Kids U to observe, analyze and understand each child that comes into our program.

Stage 1:  We will observe the child closely to determine their executive functions. Parents are encouraged to provide their input based on home observations.

Stage 2: Then, through our brain metric assessment, we determine whether the child is predominantly right or left brain.

Stage 3: Based on the brain metric assessment, the child’s abilities and parent input, we set up the appropriate individualized program for each child.

Maximized Executive Function*

  • Brains aren’t just born; they are built over time based on meaningful social interactions and enjoyable activities.
  • Executive function and self-regulation skills provide critical supports for learning and development.
  • Executive functions are best developed between birth and the age of 6.
  • The basic dimensions of executive function are working memory, inhibitory control, mental flexibility, attention, decision making and reasoning.
  • Children build these skills at increasingly demanding levels.
  • Strong executive function contributes to a successful and happy life.

Custom Development Curriculum

Kids U offers a customized individual curriculum that is continuously being re-assessed. The proprietary executive function assessment we implement allows us to design a curriculum to maximize the learning capacity of an individual child’s left brain, right brain and movement.

Left Brain

Left Brain

Our left brain classrooms are based onMaria Montessori’s method of teaching, where children are given theindependence and freedom to learn at their own pace. The environment is work-based and acts as the third teacher. This allows our students to absorb conceptsand develop concentration and skills through the practical life activities andprepared materials that surround them.

Right Brain

Right Brain

Our right brain environment is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education, where creativity, imagination, social skills and children’s interests determine the curriculum. The learning is child-directed, with teachers and families as collaborators. We design the care, play and learning environments to communicate what we believe about children — that they are mighty learners; creative, resourceful and capable.

Movement

Movement

Our specialized movement curriculum gets children on track to a healthy and active lifestyle. Through group games, sports,basic movement skills, nutritional guidance and plenty of outdoor exercise, ourgym classes promote both a healthy body and a healthy mind.

our goal

To shape a child's brain architecture by focusing our curriculum on executive function through our unique left brain, right brain and movement curricula. Children experience all three multi-aged environments according to their strengths and needs.
