    Mr. and Mrs. Patel, The Owners

    Welcome to our Kiddie Academy family! At Kiddie Academy of Fairlawn, we understand the importance of having a nurturing and engaging environment, where children can truly develop a love for learning.  We have created a fun, collaborative, and inclusive atmosphere where children are honored and diversity is appreciated.  We want every child to embrace the beauty of who they are, and to have pride in themselves, their school, their family, and their community.  For us, the reward is knowing that we play an important role in creating a better world for all – by helping to shape one little heart and mind at a time.      As parents, we fell in love with the Life Essentials curriculum.  We believe in its holistic approach and its emphasis on social, emotional, and creative development.  At the same time, we also appreciate its focus on core academics such as Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies.  All of this provides a solid foundation for a child’s future success in school and in life.Being parents to a young child ourselves, we know firsthand that leaving our precious little ones anywhere is not easy.  For our Kiddie Academy parents, we wanted to provide everything that we value as parents.  Accordingly, we have placed an emphasis on transparency and communication.  We have streaming cameras in every room so you can be a part of your child's day.  We are also open to texts, emails, or phone calls - and we utilize a system called Tadpoles to communicate and share memories, events, and day-to-day happenings in the classroom.  We would want to feel connected to our child when we are not there, and this is our way of providing that to our Kiddie Academy parents. Our children are our greatest blessing and during their time at Kiddie Academy of Fair Lawn, they will receive a well-rounded education while building on their personality and growth; all while having fun and making new friends! We thank you for choosing Kiddie Academy of Fair Lawn and we promise to give your children the same experience and treatment as our own! Choosing the right childcare can have a profound influence on your child, and it can also provide your family the peace of mind that your child will be looked after well.  We built this business to be a positive experience for your child, for you, and for our community.  We wholeheartedly believe that we provide an excellent choice.  Stop by and say hello, we would love to see you!

    Ms Melissa, Educational Director

    Ms. Melissa is the Curriculum Director here at the Kiddie Academy of Fairlawn.  Her educational background is in Childhood Psychology, and she has over 12 years of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education (ECE.)  Within ECE, she has held a wide range of positions, from being an Infant Teacher to an Assistant Director.  Her passion for childhood development also led her to start a consulting business where she helped families understand what is happening in their child’s brain and then provided custom development plans to nurture the child’s unique personality.  All of this has allowed her to gain valuable insights into working with children.   She understands that the first five years of a child’s life are critical for healthy development and becoming the best person they can be.  She also believes that cultivating a safe place for children to start their school journey sets them up to have a positive view of learning.  When she’s not “nerding” out on the newest development advancements in Neuroscience, she loves to paint, hike/travel with her dog, listen to music, and cook!   Ms. Melissa is excited to be back in a school setting, and she looks forward to working with our amazing staff to provide your littles ones the best possible education.

    Mr. Casey, Assistant Director

    Hello friends and families!  It is a pleasure to meet you!  My name is Casey and I am the Assistant Director here at Kiddie Academy of Fairlawn.  I’ve been working in early childhood education for the past 9 years and have lead classrooms from 6 weeks all the way to kindergarten.  I have also worked with curriculum implementation and development as well as school leadership and am excited to continue my journey with you all.  Throughout my years as a teacher and administrator, I have seen, first hand, the value of early childhood education in providing the foundations for not just academic success, but in molding hearts and minds to be charitable, empathetic, and aware of ourselves and how we interact and affect the community around us.  In my free time, I enjoy exploring new places, hiking and photography… all the better if I can do those things at a coffee shop or newly discovered restaurant!  I’ll also always make time for a good conversation about educational philosophy or child development!  It is my goal to be a partner to our families and teachers so that we can create an environment where we can learn about, engage with and mold the world around us!
