A place to learn.
A place to grow.

When children learn at their own pace, they are capable of incredible growth.

This is the core philosophy of our Life Essentials® curriculum.

Kids find happiness. Parents find peace of mind.

As a parent, you see your child growing every day—perhaps too fast. And we’re not talking about height markers on door frames.

At Kiddie Academy, we never take a single moment of your child’s growth potential for granted. We feed your child’s curiosity and instinct to learn with days filled with age-appropriate activities designed to treat every experience as an opportunity to learn.

Community Begins Here.®

Our passion is to deliver the highest quality childcare possible. This passion, and our 30 years in business, has earned us a leadership position in education-based childcare. It’s what has drives us to positively shape the lives of children, families and communities everywhere.
