Kiddie Academy® of Des Peres


The best teachers, administrators, and facilities. I know my sweet daughter is learning and is safe at KA. She asks to go to school everyday and that makes me happier than I can say. - Caitlin J. on 05/19/2019

Kiddie Academy is a family. The teachers and staff show my child so much love and she has thrived under their care. Mrs. Christi goes above and beyond to tailor to each child and challenge them as individuals. My daughter will leave KA this fall reading and fully prepared for kindergarten because of the confidence she developed and love she felt from Mrs. Christi and KA. - Tracy W. on 05/18/2019

We have two children in the school, and have witnessed a tremendous amount of growth and development over the past 10 months since they started at KA. Their teachers have really taken a personalized approach, and I know that they genuinely care about our children. Ms Christi is absolutely amazing. Our daughter loves her, and has learned SO much (4 year old pre-K, and already not only knows her letters, but is starting basic reading and spelling, science, math, social studies, and CHESS!!!). It is CRAZY to think how much progress she has made over the past year! Our son had a difficult time adjusting to school this year. It was a really rough first handful of months! With the help of his teacher and the leads, he did make make some slow and steady progress, but I really feel that over the past couple of months, he has made giant strides! He absolutely LOVES soccer!! He is doing things that were COMPLETELY out of his comfort zone 10 months ago- participating in class groups and centers, eating lunch, making art projects (happy to see more of these recently!!), and knows letters and numbers, days of the week, and complex shapes (among LOTS of other things)! He is maturing emotionally, and we can see the development outside of school too. We LOVE Ms Katelyn!! Thank you so much for all you have ALL done over the past 10 months to help our children learn and grow over the past 10 months!!! - Erin B. on 05/06/2019

Gina and staff are responsive to concerns. I see Viraj becoming more independent in a way that would not happen at home. - Sreenivasa D. on 04/09/2019
