  • Austin-San Marcos, TX (1888PressRelease) September 29, 2010 - Kids R Kids of Round Rock is thrilled to announce the installation of the first Hatch TeachSmart learning system in Central Texas. The TeachSmart learning system consists of a large interactive whiteboard that features over 1,100 activities in the latest in pre-literacy and mathematics concept acquisition in young children. Patented and distributed by Hatch, the leader in elementary computer learning centers for over twenty years, the TeachSmart system enables children to learn in a self-directed way.

    "Creativity, ingenuity, and innovation are tools that our children will need if they're going to compete in a global workforce when they become adults. Many of the systems currently in place do not inspire students to think for themselves and don't take into consideration that everyone learns differently," says Suzy Poe, Owner of Kids R Kids in Round Rock. "The TeachSmart interactive system is all about exploration and getting children excited about going to school. With gentle guidance and support from the Kids R Kids team, children are encouraged to explore different learning styles and are given the opportunity to find what works for them, be proud of the skill set they have, and teach themselves how to learn. With overcrowding facing so many of our public schools, we know that the earlier we can instill the desire to learn independently, and think creatively in our children the better off they'll be" Poe continues.

    Kids R Kids of Round Rock is the only private preschool in Central Texas that uses the Hatch TeachSmart learning system.

    "Hatch is excited to be working with Kids 'R' Kids of Round Rock to implement the first interactive, hands-on technology system developed for the early childhood classroom, with hundreds of research- and classroom-tested learning strategies and activities," announces Ginny Norton, President of Hatch.

    Children attending Kids R Kids of Round Rock begin utilizing the TeachSmart Learning System at around three and a half years. The playful and purposeful activities are designed around core school readiness skill areas of language development, phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, writing and math. Parents are given digital progress reports and insight into how their child learns best so that when they enter Kindergarten parents can help them relate their schoolwork in a way that gets them excited about learning.
