BRANCHBURG, NJ - Kangaroo Kids teachers, families and students kicked off an exciting new school year. 

Teachers have been busy planning curriculum activities for from 6 weeks old through a full day private school kindergarten and before and after school programs. Beyond their traditional education, they will also enjoy music classes with Miss JoAnne, and learn Chinese from Miss Cynthia. They will extend learning beyond the classroom as they go on a trip this month to a farm to learn how apples grow. 

Oct. 9 through 15 is National Fire Safety Week where children will have a visit from the local fire department.  They will also learn to stop, drop and roll and the important safety steps to prevent and prepare for emergencies.  It is an important time for all families to check their smoke detectors and review their emergency evacuations plans.
