About Us

Kindred Learning Center’s goal is to help children develop mentally, physically and emotionally. We strive to develop future leaders that shine among their peers, in the community and abroad. Our goal is to build strong children, families and communities.

 

Our History

Kindred Learning Center is founded by a set of twin sisters (Kia Miller and Kelly Miller) that have always had a passion for teaching young children. Both sisters decided to gain degrees in Education. After teaching in the public school system for several years both sisters agreed that there was a need to ensure that children were taught fundamental skills at a very early age.

The sisters decided that they would open a learning center that educated young children and their families. They both believed that in order to successfully educate children they must also help the families understand child development. Because this learning center was founded by two sisters and the focus of the center is to build strong children and families, they decided to name their child care learning center “Kindred Learning Center.”

The goal of the founders is to create an environment that makes children and their families feel loved and welcomed. Their goal is also to help children and families build a joy of learning. The founders of Kindred Learning Center believe that “We are one family working together for a better tomorrow.”

Our Teachers

The teachers of Kindred Learning center are dedicated to creating a safe and healthy learning environment. Our teachers plan daily activities that build social/ emotional, physical, cognitive and language development. Teachers have background knowledge of child development and continue to learn and study new ideas for working with young children. The teachers of Kindred Learning Center know the importance of assessments and assess children throughout the year to assist children in their development. Our teachers understand the importance of family engagement and encourages family involvement and partnerships.

 “My time being employed at Kindred Learning Center was honestly  the best 5 years of my life. I learned and grew a lot during my employment at the center. The continued education requirement allowed  me to further my understanding of skills and procedures in the child care field…

At Kindred Learning Center I found a passion and career.  I truly appreciate the directors Ms. Kia and Ms. Kelly for their nurturing and caring personality that truly helped me to become the woman  that I am now… 

Not only would I recommend this place for employment but I would recommend the center for any child care needs the staff  is great with the children.”  -Ms. Tramyra

Programs >>Just for Threes

Developmentally appropriate activities are scheduled with flexibility that allows teachers to respond to the needs of each individual child.  Our Terrific Threes use the InvestiGator Club’s Just for threes Learning System.  Just for Threes helps children develop important readiness skills by nurturing each child’s individual needs and encourages cognitive, physical, and emotional growth through exploration and play.  The Just for Threes program has planned learning experiences that include a mix of whole group, small group and individual interactions with teachers.  Our program has a balance between child initiated, free choice learning, and intentional, teacher directed instruction.   

Programs >>Infants & Toddlers

As they engage in routines day after day, they collect, organize, and reorganize information about themselves, other people, and things. This understanding helps them make sense of the world.  We promote learning by offering a variety of experiences to the children in our care.  Our infants and toddlers are given the opportunity to play throughout the day.   During daily routines and experiences children have individual plans that help support their development.  Play offers them opportunities to make choices, solve problems, interact with one another, interact with their teacher, pursue interests, experience learning as fun and exciting, and experience themselves as capable, competent, successful learners.  Play also gives children the opportunity to build language and literacy skills, discover mathematical relationships and help them be young scientists.   

Programs >>Family Engagement

We have a health and wellness policy that allows parents to learn about having healthy families.  Our lending library gives parents the opportunity to borrow materials that are relevant to building strong families.  We host Ready at Five Learning Parties which are built on the idea that learning can be fun.  Learning parties are interactive, hands on, parent/child "parties" that promote and enhance the school readiness skills of young children.  Learning parties promote positive parenting and enhance a parent's ability to be a young child's first teacher.  Kindred also offers Maryland Family network’s parent Cafés.  Parents cafés are created to help build strong families.  Families are welcomed to assist with field trips and special events that are given by Kindred Learning Center.   

Programs >>Pre-K & Kindergarten

This program is a fully integrated curriculum with a strong focus on literacy, math, and science.  We begin our day with daily routines that are created for each investigation.  During opening Circle time, we sing songs and rhymes that make it easy for children to learn critical skills and concepts in fun-child centered activities.  Our everyday literacy focuses on activities that are critical for young children’s future reading success such as oral language development, phonological awareness, vocabulary, and alphabet knowledge.  We regularly address other important skills and concepts such as written expression, print awareness and motivation to read.  At the end of each day children engage in conversations with their classmates, do a shared reading and writing activity and learn different songs and rhymes.

Our Kindergarten program corresponds to the pre-k curriculum providing higher level activities and approaches that engage and challenge five- year olds.  The Kindergarten program is aligned with state and national kindergarten standards.
