Kiddie Academy® of Des Peres


The staff at Kiddie Academy is amazing. My son can be very shy but he cannot wait to go to school to see his teachers and friends. They do a great job of having themes of the week to help tie all the lessons together. Kiddie Academy does a great job with kids with allergies as well and I love that I know my son is safe at school. - Christa L. on 10/19/2020

It is like an extension of our own family. We trust the teacher’s and love the feedback that we receive on our child. We love the open communication that we have with every level of the organization. This make me feel that they are invested as much as we are to give our child the best head start in their education and life that we can. - Homer P. on 10/18/2020

The fact that this is not a child care center, it is a place where my child can develop significant social, cognitive and personal skills that will be fundamental in her development as a human being - Pedro R. on 10/17/2020

I like how much my child has learned since being there and how all the teachers seem to know him by name. - Jennifer S. on 10/17/2020

We LOVE the toddler unit on bugs right now. It has made Jack so attentive to ants, ladybugs, spiders, and bees outside our house and on trips to the park. Probably the best part of our day is picking him up from KA, and hearing all about his adventures and the different bugs he saw and learned about. We also need to give a shout out to the cooking classes. Jack looks so full of joy in his pictures from cooking class days! We've started trying to involve him more in cooking at home because of this, and it's been so much fun! Thanks to everyone at KA for all you do! - Cathrine M. on 09/30/2020

Peace of mind that my son is well cared for, safe, and learning through play. These teachers are honestly the best around. I am so grateful for all they do. - Jennifer L. on 09/14/2020

You all are doing a great job managing the change! Ben has been very happy with his new class, and he's happy to get back into the classroom this week. - Matt M. on 09/12/2020
