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.
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.

I strongly believe that it is important for young children to receive early education that can focus on all areas of their developmental growth. During our search for business, we decided to go with Kiddie Academy because it possesses all the qualities that we were looking for with caring teachers, a fun atmosphere and strong curriculum. I want it to continue my passion for young learners. We decided to open our second location in Grayslake to the community, as we continue to inspire young minds. My husband and I have two wonderful boys, and we love to meet new people. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching web series/ movies in my free time.

Danielle has been in childcare for the past 18 years and has served as a Teacher, Program Specialist, Assistant Director and Director. Danielle has her B.A. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Science from Southern Illinois University and spent time teaching in the public school system for a few years before coming back to Early Childhood Education full time. Beginning at a young age, she always knew she wanted to be an educator and work with children. She volunteered during her recess time in the primary classrooms when she was in elementary school and began babysitting at the age of 14. That love of helping to nurture children is what brought her to Kiddie Academy. Danielle lives in Lindenhurst, Illinois with her husband of 14 years and 2 children: Isabella (12) and Jackson (2). When she is not at the academy, she loves spending time with her family and crafting. “I am excited to have the opportunity to share my passion and enthusiasm of learning. I love watching the children develop new skills each day. I am here to help support your children and love them as my own. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Thank you for entrusting Kiddie Academy of Grayslake to be a part of your family!”

“Very clear and collective communication. Staff members are kind and excited to see parents and kids. We have had quite a few health issues and everyone has been so supportive of checking in and asking how they can help. So helpful with the developmental delays and helping support child’s therapies. Just such a relief that… ”

“Our son has been exposed to so many educational activities while at Kiddie Academy. He is 2 years old and he knows his ABC's, colors, and can count to 13! Kiddie Academy has taught our son some sign language (which we had to learn as well) and basically has potty trained our toddler. ”
Alisha S., Grayslake
“I love the staff and how friendly and caring they are. I love the development we have seen in our son since attending this school. You don’t like to leave your child but you are assured they are in great hands as Kiddie Academy ”

“Classroom size, security features at the front door, access to the ED. ”

“No external after school daycare. I love that the school focuses on preschool classes and does not open up for after care to older kids. ”
