Kiddie Academy is a leading child care provider.
Specifically, we excel in educationally focused child care.
Since we launched our first academy more than 27 years ago, Kiddie Academy has experienced tremendous growth.
Today, we have academies coast to coast.
And we're growing every day.
We recognize that honesty and thoughtfulness are critical qualities in the development of well-rounded individuals.
Through our character development program, which is an important part of Life Essentials, values are reinforced throughout daily academy activities, enabling your child to better understand the society in which we live and how to interact successfully with others.
With our family style dining, your child enjoys nutritious lunches and snacks that are served each day to ensure that each child enjoys a well-balanced diet.
We believe when children and teachers eat together, they do more than share food.
They share knowledge.
They learn from each other.
We like to think of it as the next best thing to sitting around the dinner table at your home.
Life Essentials is an overarching philosophy that includes our programs and techniques.
The continuous training we provide for our staff which includes a high percentage of degreed teachers always meets and often exceeds the standard for child care services.
We require staff to participate in ongoing professional development programs because it ensures everyone here is providing the best care possible for your child.
