I like everything about this daycare!!!

I can tell every adult at the school really cares about my child. And made sure my now kindergartener was more than ready for school when he started this year. I would recommend Kiddie Academy in Columbia to anyone!

Communication on the well being of my child.

I greatly appreciate the fast communication from the front office, the teachers who provide a stimulating, safe, fun environment for the children, the food provided, family day events, and receiving daily photos and videos through Tadpoles.

We appreciate the structured activities geared toward age-appropriate developmental goals. We also like that teachers are caring and nurturing.

We transferred our daughter at Kiddie Academy from a different local school, and we could not be happier. She's learned a lot and the teachers are very kind and supportive. Keep up the great work.
