The Spanish Class
It’s never too early to begin learning a language: it’s fun, it promotes healthy development, and the many cognitive and social benefits will last a lifetime. Kidz Karousel centers offer early second language learning through instruction from “The Spanish Class”. Once a week, a Spanish teacher helps our little ones ages 2-5 years old to learn Spanish salutations, numbers and basic words and phrases in Spanish! This enrichment is available at our centers in Zachary, Downtown Baton Rouge and Prairieville.
Soccer Shots is an engaging children’s soccer program with a focus on character development. They are driven by the belief that a positive sports experience can make a lasting impact on a child’s life. They work to impact children’s lives through their best-in-class coaching, communication and curriculum. Our Kidz Karousel children experience the game of soccer once a week at Prairieville, Mandeville and Zachary locations.

Children begin to learn early literacy skills at birth through everyday interactions such as sharing books, telling stories, singing songs, talking to one another, or pointing out and naming objects These activities help expand their vocabularies, broaden and enrich their experiences and stimulate brain development. Once a week, local librarians visit the centers, reading preschool favorites and engaging children in what is being read to further promote their critical and imaginative thinking. It also improves their intellectual and emotional development, and helps them acquire the pre-reading skills needed for reading success in school. Our centers in Downtown Baton Rouge, Zachary, Prairieville and Mandeville enjoy librarian visits weekly.

Lyons Club Vision Screenings
It is estimated that between 5 and 10 percent of all children have vision problems that can lead to permanent loss of vision if not detected and treated in time. Vision loss can subsequently lead to under achievement in school and in the workplace. The Cubsight program is designed to screen children from 1 to 5 years of age. With this screening, we can detect eye diseases before it is too late. With early detection of eye diseases, we can save a child’s sight. Our Kidz Karousel children are screened annually with parent consent.
