Wow, what a fun and exciting program! The Kids EXCEL is everything you could hope for an interactive learning program for kids! I love to see them learn and move! It takes advantage of so many bodies of research about the importance of movement, music and learning. I wish it was a program every 4th grader in our district could do! It is a WONDERFUL resource!
It's wonderful to see the growth and break throughs in each child involved in this program. These children create maturity within themselves by being challenged and having a sense of accomplishment. Kids excel provides these rewards that are needed at this age level.
This is a wonderful program for the elementary students. To see their self esteem boost and the theatrical skills really help these students
come closer to their full educational potential. It just makes us smile!
