I really feel good about our decision to send Raygan to Kiddie Academy. I enjoy that when I drop her off/pick her up she is happy and excited, especially when she sees her teachers and baby friends. I like that there are fun event days through the month and I look forward to as she…
Valerie A., Grayslake

We love how happy our daughter is when we drop her off and pick her up! The daily pictures we get shows how involved and caring the teachers and staff are. Our daughter is learning and changing so much since she started going there!
Angela W., Grayslake

We love the staff at Kiddie Academy! Our favorite part of each day is sitting with our 20 month old and showing her the photos that her teachers uploaded in the app, and hearing her tell us about her day and her friends. We have the highest level of trust in how they care for…
Mary M., Grayslake

Everyone is very kind and attentive. You can really tell they do their absolute best for the children, they’re genuine and educational care is what I like the most!
Dominque E., Grayslake

Very hands on! I love that the teachers share pictures at the end of day and tell when she had a diaper change and what she ate!
Lauren S., Grayslake

Everyone that we've interacted with has been so wonderful! Our daughter loves all of her teachers and has really opened up to new people since she's started going to Kiddie Academy. We can't wait to see how much more she's going to learn in the future!
Gina G., Grayslake

I like that my child is learning things and building on that knowledge. Examples include, using sign language to communicate, being read to alot, hearing/practicing music. I also love all the pictures and videos I get each day and the app makes it super easy to communicate. Only wish is that the app would refresh…
Valerie A., Grayslake

Very clean, friendly stuff. I love the communication, and daily report about my child.
Anna Z., Grayslake

We love how well you care for our children! We feel comfortable and confident with them in your care, they get lots of great educational activities. Some of the snacks seem high in sugar and processed (cookies, nilla wafers etc). We’d like to see more veggie snacks
Mary M., Grayslake

The team at Kiddie Academy of Grayslake is extremely kind, caring, and fun. My 1 year old son goes straight to them at drop off and at pick up, is not usually in a hurry to grab mom when they’re holding him. He is obviously very comfortable with the staff and secure. Kiddie Academy is…
