Kids in Rhythm is an all inclusive preschool, serving children of all abilities ages 3 to 5 years old. We focus on developing cognitive, verbal, physical, and social skills. Studies have shown that children with differences learning together in the same environment have lasting positive impact. Every brain is different and we celebrate that here at Kids in Rhythm!

Inclusive education has positive short-term and long-term effects for all students. It also benefits their peers--they are more comfortable with, tolerant of differences, have increased self esteem and diverse caring friendships.

According to scholarly research, students with differences who learn alongside their peers have a better academic performance and attendance record than those in separate classrooms.

There Are  3 Major Benefits to Inclusive Education

Teaching that is tailored for all students

An inclusive classroom takes into account how students learn. Teachers weave in different strategies like allowing kids to move around and use sensory or fidgets tools, as well as positive behavioral interventions and supports.

Every brain is different

Inclusive classrooms are filled with learners of different backgrounds and abilities. Inclusion helps kids build connections since they all learn in their own way. It also promotes awareness that difference is just a normal part of life, which can help them develop friendships across boundaries.

Support for all students

An inclusive class often brings professionals and service providers into the classroom to provide information and suggestions that help all students. If a student isn’t eligible for special education but still needs some extra support, they can get it informally with their peers in an integrated setting rather than being taken out of the learning environment completely.
