National child care learning company brings high-quality child care to the area

Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Darien. For more than 30 years the company has been successful with combining learning with child care, said Katie Moore, Owner of Kiddie Academy of Darien, located at 1502 75th Street.

“Our well-trained, attentive staff assists children in developing the confidence and self-esteem necessary to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Our philosophy at Kiddie Academy is that care and learning go hand in hand,” Moore said. “We also believe that it’s extremely important to foster bonds between not only our educators and children, but between educators and parents, academies and the local community.”

According to the National Childcare Accreditation Council, children’s learning and development is enhanced when they make choices and guide their own experiences through their individual interests, personalities and skills. Children’s learning occurs through planned and spontaneous experiences, during their participation in daily routines and through their experience of positive modeling by adults and peers.

Moore says that’s exactly Kiddie Academy’s focus. “The assortment of activities we have available for the children is endless, which encourages them to learn, play and explore. When children attend Kiddie Academy of Darien, they will acquire the skills and strength of character that will foster their success.”

The Darien Academy, the second location opened by the Moore family, will have the capacity for 159 children. Unique features of the Darien Academy include:

  • Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
  • Staff nutritionist
  • Parent accessible web cams
  • State of the art security
  • Life Essentials® proprietary curriculum

“We invite children to embark on a journey with Kiddie Academy that will prepare them for success in school and beyond,” Moore said.
