Kiddie Academy® of Des Peres


I know that my baby is safe, happy, and well cared for when she is at Kiddie Academy. I love her teacher’s (Miss Cylina) upbeat attitude and clear passion for what she does. She always takes her time telling me about my baby’s day and never seems rushed (no matter what is going on in the classroom). I have also enjoyed getting to know your other infant teachers and Miss Tarra. I love that your leadership team (Gina, Carolynn, etc) are hands-on in the classrooms and seem to know each child and family! KA staff as a whole are ALWAYS kind and professional. Educationally, I am confident that my daughter is with teachers who are at the top of their field. My daughter has made leaps and strides developmentally during her time at KA with accepting bottles, rolling over, and sitting up! I appreciate the WatchMeGrow system greatly; it is great to watch my baby from anywhere and it took a lot of the anxiety away from my initial return to work. Overall, I would and do recommend KA to friends and colleagues at every opportunity. Thank you all for taking such good care of my baby! - Caitlin J. on 11/07/2017

KA has been a wonderful fit for our family. Outstanding staff who provide educational based care to our toddler. Would highly recommend them to anyone seeking child care. - Julie C. on 11/07/2017

The teachers are so friendly. My son loves going to this place every morning. He calls his classroom home. The teachers play with the kids while they are in playground. The entire class eats breakfast/lunch/snack in family style. The webcam gives parents the transparency that we crave for. The list just continues. - Dhanya A. on 11/07/2017

I have recently recommended KA to a couple of different people. Our family values the open door and open communication at Kiddie. We love getting daily updates through the Tadpoles app! Another top notch characteristic about KA is that they balance early learning academic activities with free creative play. In addition, they hold free family activities throughout the year. This gives KA a community feeling. - Kim D. on 10/31/2017

I think the school does a great job of hiring qualified, caring teachers. I can tell that my child’s teacher genuinely cares about him and his development which gives me peace of mind. I’m also very satisfied with the diversity amongst the student body as well as the staff. - Markita W. on 10/19/2017

I love that my kids are learning and exploring all day. My kids love to come to school and that makes me feel good. It is nice that they have a consistent schedule and a curriculum starting at a young age. They have wonderful teachers and they are introduced to many different types of food as well. - Heather H. on 10/17/2017
