At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Cinco Ranch East, we love telling our children about the beauty of diversity in our world. Every month we focus on a different region or country and highlight some unique aspects of the cultures and people found in those places.
This month we are highlighting the Near East, more commonly referred to as the Middle East. This region includes Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Oman, Syria, Iran, Iraq, & many other countries. While this area of the globe is no stranger to conflict and civil wars, it also contains rich traditions, stunning architecture, and some of the most hospitable people in the world.
There are also some noteworthy geographical landmarks tucked into the Near East, such as the Arabian desert in Saudi Arabia and the Dead Sea, in the northwest of Jordan, which forms the lowest point on earth! The majority of people living in the Middle East practice the religion of Islam although there are also Christians and other minorities represented as well.
We know how important it is to instill in our children an appreciation for those who look and act differently from us and are passionate about creating an environment that respects and encourages people from all kinds of backgrounds. If you want more information about our programs please feel free to contact us or stop by for a free tour. We would love to show you all the ways we are so much more than a preschool or daycare!
