Hear from our parents

We've been with Kiddie Academy for years now, while we did hit some bumps on the road, I'd say right now it's the best it's ever been. Ms. Stephanie has found her groove as Director and seems to have gotten great respect and collaboration from the Staff and that shows. The teachers are great throughout…
Kelly C., Apopka

We love the director Ms. Stephanie. She goes above and beyond for our children. She cares and always puts the students first. She is a great leader and does her best to make the teachers feel appreciated. We are very grateful for Ms. Stephenie.
Juan C., Apopka

I appreciate all the staff, especially the teachers in the room. I have no complaints I think they do a wonderful job. I do miss the more detailed tadpole daily updates but that’s no a big issue.
Jayonna S., Apopka

They are willing to be flexible with the parents and seem to genuinely care about the children. Also, it gives me peace of mind that the doors are locked so not just anyone can walk into the daycare facility and that there is cameras so the parents can check on their children throughout the day.
Luella M., Apopka

I love the fact I can watch my daughter on camera instead of calling in just to check on her. I love the reports given at the end of the date via email. I love the teaches. I just love this daycare overall.
Tatyana A., Apopka

Honestly everything! The staff is friendly and kind, treat you like family and even though my daughter throws fits in the morning they do their best to make sure her transition from hole to car and vice versa is smooth. The cameras are a plus as well
Jade J., Apopka

Me encanta es la primera escuela de mis hijos y estoy muy contenta por eso !! Gran lugar muy amables todos
Deuiesy F., Apopka

I enjoy the safety precautions taken to ensure no one who isn't supposed to be in the building can not get in as well as the ability to check in on my child at any point from my phone. The staff are very sweet and care very much about the children and communication is excellent…
Tatiana G., Apopka

I love the staff and all of the activities they have for the children.
