For more than 25 years, Kiddie Kollege has fostered a love of learning in kids age 6 weeks–12 years, offering safe, nurturing day-care programs led by a caring and experienced staff. Staff members develop individual schedules for each child age 6 weeks–18 months, curious kids 18 months–3 years develop their motor coordination and confidence with structured activities, and preschool kids, age 3–5, participate in a storybook-based curriculum that introduces literacy, language, math, and science. Staff members assess each child twice a year to identify developing skills and needs. Kids age 5–12 build friendships and academic skills with book readings, games, and field trips, along with supervised science experiments where they'll learn how to transmogrify homework about physics into homework about fudgsicles. The staff-to-child ratio is four to one for infants, five to one for toddlers, eight to one for preschoolers, and ten to one for school-aged children.
The quick and convenient UPS Store is a three-headed office chimera belching forth flame-free shipping, printing, and office necessities. Its packaging experts take the hassle out of shipping Faberge bicycles to far off regions with custom-made boxes ($2-$15) for fragile and irregularly shaped items. Customers can cast their bundles off in their own optimum time frames, using one of the full range of UPS shipping options, including next-day air, ground, and international shipping. With the luggage box, customers may choose to accompany their picaresque possessions by checking the box or using it as a carry-on. Printing services at The UPS Store sculpt stacks of B&W copies for $0.03 each or color copies for $0.19 each, while mailbox rentals ($20-$30) equip business owners with notification services and 24-hour access to an actual street address, rather than a PO box or a peach basket stapled to the wall.
