Kiddie Academy of Cary

Request Information

We are located at 1450 Tryon Manor Drive, at the corner of Walnut and Tryon, behind Harris Teeter.

Every day your child's imagination grows and their curiosity gathers momentum—Kiddie Academy of Cary empowers and celebrates all of it.

Daycare is a word that we use, but here it means something different. Our facilities are designed to be places children can grow as individuals and prepare for life. Not all of our learning has to do with reading or numbers; character education and social interaction both play a big part in our preschool curriculum. Kiddie Academy children learn how to get along with each other, to share and to be grateful along with their ABC’s and 123’s.

Our Life Essentials® learning approach and curriculum encourages children to explore and progress in their own way, and at their own pace. At Kiddie Academy of Cary, your child will grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. Our highly trained teachers are there every step of the way to guide, nurture and cultivate your child's development.
