    Ms. Joanne, Administration: Center Director

Joanne began her career as a classroom teacher, working with every age group we serve. She has held roles as a Center Director, Program Director, Leadership Mentor, Early Childhood Trainer and Classroom Teacher. Joanne's Director experience includes corporate/client-based childcare, nonprofit and community-based settings.

Joanne looks forward to meeting with you and learning more about your child as well as your families needs.

    Toby Turtle, Social Emotional Puppet

    Meet Toby Turtle, one of our Social and Emotional Puppets! Kiddie Academy of Colonia has a group of puppets that are also "on staff" at our facility! Each puppet has a different personality. Our puppets are frequently brought out to interact with students who might need some additional support. Toby Turtle is very shy, but loves to make new friends. He often visits with students that might be feeling shy or nervous and helps them to connect with their emotions and surroundings by mirroring their feelings and slowly acclimating to their classroom space. Sometimes students feel more comfortable interacting with a puppet friend first, who will help to connect with them and set them at ease. Toby and his puppet friends live at Kiddie Academy of Colonia and are always available any time they are needed. Families interested in learning about Toby can see a brief video about him on the school Instagram (kiddieacademyofcolonia) Fun Facts About Toby Turtle: Toby is 12 inches tall, his favorite food is pizza, his favorite song is "Wheels on the Bus" Toby's favorite story is Yertle the Turtle, his favorite color is lime green, he enjoys being read to, getting hugs, giving high-fives, making new friends, visiting the playground and helping the office.

We love the open communication, the cleanliness of the facility, the safety measures including camera access, getting photos throughout the day & that Kiddie Academy is involved in helping our community!! Staff & Teachers are EXCELLENT!!
Hailey S., Wilmington South Campus

The facilities are absolutely top notch. I also think the age structuring works nicely. There is a wonderful blend of learning and play. Above all, the teachers are wonderful. The management and teachers have been very attentive to my son\\\'s food allergies.
Nelson G., Chicago-Lincoln Square

The people! They are wonderful humans and care for each child like their own.
Erin M., Virginia Beach

I like the fact that my 3 year old is learning new words - she already knows her days of the week and almost knows all the months in a year! I love the fact that she wants to go to school everyday and I am impressed by her development and vocabulary.
