Hear from our parents

My child comes to school everyday and is learning so many different things even as a baby. Just this week they were learning about water and it was so cool to see how many times they incorporated water throughout all their lessons.
Deidra H., Des Peres

The teachers and assistants are both caring and education focused. Our daughter is exposed to many new activities and experiences we couldn't give her (such as chess and soccer) and she learns so much! She will definitely be ready for kindergarten.
Alex S., Des Peres

We have had a great experience! The teachers have been fantastic and we appreciate the healthy food and planned curriculum. Even the staff who don’t work in the classroom know him and greet him in the morning etc. We feel very welcome and comfortable
Alyssa M., Des Peres

Very organized , give detailed review on child's growth and development . Very hassle free. Teachers are very caring and add a personal touch to each child.
Swetha E., Des Peres

I might come off as bias but I truly believe KADP is the top school around. When I tell my family some of the things Dayla is working on at school they are so impressed. I really love it here
Deidra H., Des Peres

Our girls seem to learn something new every day! The curriculum is very well-rounded, we are kept up to date on changes or updates to what they are learning and how they are progressing. We love every teacher we have had - they have all been compassionate, kind, understanding, and helpful with our daughters education…
Kathleen G., Des Peres

We love Kiddie Academy! Our toddler is in the 2’s room and has a blast every day she’s at school. Ms. Kimmy is fantastic and treats our girl like family. She has learned so much over the past few years and we can’t wait to see how she progresses in the future.
Lauren D., Des Peres

We love KA!
Cathrine M., Des Peres

KA has provided consistent and high quality childcare and early childhood education. The entire staff recognizes and knows each child by name and their interests making it very comfortable to send my children to KA because I know they are not only being educated but that they are being cared for.
Sara L., Des Peres

My son is happy to go there everyday and has learned so much.
