We are a preschool of academic excellence, not just a daycare. We utilize a standards driven, year-round curriculum that is designed and updated quarterly by professional child care educators exclusively for Kids R Kids. Academic objectives are cross-referenced to reflect National and North Carolina standards.
With a mission to enable deaf-blind individuals to achieve their full potential, North Carolina Deaf-Blind Associates advocates for the rights and needs of its constituents through consumer advocacy and community-building events. John Washington and Sue Etheridge started the group as a consumer organization in 1983, but it expanded to offer annual conventions and retreats to help reduce the isolation that can result from living with communication obstacles. Conferences promote new technologies and advocate for individual rights, and the Camp Dogwood Deaf-Blind Weekend Retreat provides a much-needed space for deaf-blind adults to socialize, share stories, and participate in life-skills classes, sporting events and dances, and outings to local shopping centers or the lake.

Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
With a 10,000-square-foot showroom full of fine furnishings, East Wake Furniture gives home havers the opportunity to saturate their living areas with style. The store carries a multitude of brands, including heavy hitters such as Vaughn-Basset, Simmons, and Serta, as well as lesser-known gems. The store plucks its furniture directly off the vine, saving money on price-tag ink by leaving the middleman out of transactions and on food costs by not inviting him to parties. Customers can avail themselves of a broad array of furnishings, including lamps ($29+), coffee tables ($99+), sofas, and children's furniture for foreign-exchange elves. Pictures of recent pieces can be found by clicking here.
CCH Safety specializes in providing its students with the knowledge and the experience required to apply for a concealed-handgun license within North Carolina. Each day-long course begins by covering the state laws and statutes concerning the ownership of concealed handguns. The instructors provide this information using PowerPoint presentations, educational videos, and demonstrations, and opportunities for discussions and questions are available throughout the session.
In the afternoon, the experts go over proper firearm maintenance as well as fundamental safety practices. Under their supervision, students visit a private range for live-fire practice with targets located at distances of 3, 5, and 7 yards. In culmination of a successful course, pupils can qualify to apply for a North Carolina concealed-handgun license, which has reciprocity in 37 states.
