Infants have individual personalities. We help bring them to light.
Toddlers are extremely active. We keep them actively learning.
At two years old, children need to explore. We give them every opportunity.
At three years old, children discover and create. We encourage them to do it all.
At four years old, children are preparing for school. We get them ready to go.
Between ages 4 and 5, children are about to take on the world. We give them the tools to do it.
School-age children are curious about the world. We help them decipher it.
All day adventures. All summer long.®
We aim to make your child's summer as educational as it is fun, through themed events, activities and trips.
Each Academy is a little different. Here's what makes us unique:

Good Afternoon, Now that our Academy is well underway with construction, we wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves. My name is Ileana, and I am one of Kiddie Academy of Far North Dallas's owners. My husband and our three kids moved to Texas in August 2019. Being a parent myself, I understand the challenges when searching for the right child care option. While looking for care, I wanted to find a place where it felt like a second home to my kids. That’s why we decided to embark on the journey of opening Kiddie Academy. I want everyone who walks through our doors to feel like they are walking into a second home. As construction continues and we finalize our programs, we will send out updates on our opening timeline and pre-enrollment news. I can’t wait to meet your family and learn more about your educational child care needs. Thank you, Ileana Diaz
