How involved and invested each teacher is with the children. Making sure to include everyone and helps the kids learn new things and improving their skills. - Christina H. on 01/28/2023

Dropping off your baby at daycare for the first time is tough (no matter if it’s your first or second time), but Jalisa is the SWEETEST - not only to Xander but to all the babies in her care. She has made the transition easy. I especially love the pictures she sends throughout the day! Thank you Jalisa! - Kelly S. on 01/27/2023

Momo is amazing! She treats our kids with love and respect. - Shannon B. on 01/27/2023

The most enthusiastic and friendly teachers! We love kiddie academy! - Stacy D. on 01/27/2023

We are truly blessed to have Kiddie Academy to take care of our daughter. Her teacher Miss Alex takes excellent care and is always open to our questions and even makes time to meet us whenever needed. Our daughter is allergic to most of the allergens and KA’s food service manager has taken utmost care in planning her meals so that her meals do not look different than the other kids. I whole heartedly recommend Kiddie Academy to anyone looking for a wonderful developmental environment for their kid - *Soumya* M. on 12/30/2022

The teachers are so caring and loving to the children! We love Mr. Chris and Miss Destiny! - Elizabeth B. on 12/30/2022

We love the teachers and staff - the best! We also love the blend of character essentials and academic curriculum. The “extras” they get like cooking class and chess, etc are icing on top! - Leslie M. on 12/27/2022

We love Kiddie Academy of Des Peres! Everyone in the building knows our daughter by name and has genuine concern for her care and well being. We love being greeted by Ms. Katelyn and Ms. Candace in the mornings. Our daughter has been in Room 2, 3 and 4 and all of her teachers are incredible. Ms. Tammy in Room 2 was so great with us when we transitioned into daycare. She is so patient and worked with us to keep our daughter on her own schedule. Ms. Maggie and Ms. Courtney in Room 3 are so kind and caring. Ms. Roby and Ms. Katie in Room 4 were so great when our girl transitioned into the “big kid” room. I feel very comfortable leaving our daughter in Kiddie Academy’s care because of all of these fantastic educators. - Lauren D. on 12/23/2022

Extremely friendly and enthusiastic teachers, very clean facilities, wonderful activities for children, healthy meals. - Stacy D. on 11/25/2022

All of it! The teachers really get to know my son and fill us in every day. The activities they do always look fun! Most importantly my son wants to come to school every day. We are all VERY happy! - Emily H. on 11/25/2022
