    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. Seema, Administrative Assistant

    Ms. Seema is our Administrative Assistant. Although she ventured into the field of Early Childhood Education fairly recently, her journey had already begun with being a mother of two little ones, as she continued to explore various early childhood education and development philosophies to equip herself with the effective tools and techniques to not only nourish the kids but also nurture their curiosity as they continued to learn and grow. With that knowledge and experience coupled with her academic and professional achievements in teaching as well as administering the academic program(s), she first joined Kiddie Academy of Fair Lawn as an infant teacher and has now taken on administrative responsibilities. Having led the classroom as a teacher/staff gives her a well-rounded perspective on ensuring the well-being of little ones while supporting our teachers/staff and coordinating/communicating with parents in order to fulfill our mission of providing exceptional care as well as quality education. In her rare moments of leisure, she loves to read, listen to music and play with her kids. Her favorite quote: “Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”  Rudolf Steiner

    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!  

Hear from our parents

Although I think the academy is obsessive over the finger nails being military standard. The overall satisfaction of knowing our child is in good hands and the teachers and administrators really do care about the kids. The way they interact and the way my child lights up when they see them is huge.
