I love how much my child has developed. She’s counting, singing songs from school, learning how to spell her name-just incredible. I love the themed weeks to engage children’s educational interest makes learning fun for the kids. I love that they take the children outside when it’s nice-so important to get them outside (even if it’s for 10 minuets). The pictures and daily report I get really helps me understand the environment my daughter is in-reassuring me she’s safe, happy, learning and getting social skills. Love Kiddie Academy! - Anne S. on 03/03/2018

The staff is very friendly and helpful. I never feel like my son is not taken care of. I love the app for communication throughout the day! - Alexandra G. on 12/28/2017

I love that the education is fun for the kids and that you keep us informed of what they are learning each day in the app so we can help at home also. Plus it’s fun to see the pictures of their day. - Karen S. on 12/05/2017

I’m so impressed with Kiddie Academy. We signed my daughter up vs. going to preschool through the park district and some other options due to the fact the hours didn’t match my demanding work schedule. I knew Kiddie Academy was reputable but I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had an image of it being more like daycare vs. school. That image of my child not getting attention or not developing was gone immediately. My daughter has developed so much in just a few months! She’s getting interaction with kids her age, progressing in her speech and developing her motor skills at a rapid pace. Just amazing to see these results. Additionally, there is picture day, conferences, opportunities to volunteer....It’s definitely a real school. The teachers and aids are so kind and really know my kid. It was hard for me to think of me leaving my little person at a building for 4 hours a day. Who would take care of her? I know Kiddie Academy is more than a building now. It’s a great school. We love it so much we’re considering adding more days for our daughter to go because she loves it so much. We’re also considering having my younger daughter start a year earlier than my current child enrolled just to help her development. Thanks Kiddie Academy-the Stojakovic/Smith family love it there! :) - Anne S. on 11/27/2017
