Everything, keep up the good work - David H. on 08/04/2022

I appreciate that everyone knows my child's name. It demonstrates the level of attention and care my child receives, even if her typical teachers are not available. I also appreciate the cautiousness of my child's teachers during covid when my child was not yet eligible for a vaccine. - Jennifer K. on 07/21/2022

Kiddie Academy feels like a second home for my family. My daughter has continued to learn and prosper through our years here. - Arionna M. on 07/21/2022

Absolutely adore how everyone is so friendly and welcoming and sincere. It feels like home outside of home for all and the little one. Truly the best environment for him. - Josie C. on 07/21/2022

Literally everything! Not one thing I can even complain or gripe about. I recommend your facility to everyone! - Taniya C. on 07/14/2022

The staff is awesome, our daughter is learning so much..I know she is safe the facility is clean. We couldn't ask for a better place. - Jami R. on 07/14/2022

I love the variety of activities for my kids. They love the outdoor space and equipment. My kids are never bored and always well cared for. Every one worked so hard to help maintain my daughter's special diet requirements, even when she wasn't super cooperative. - Mary Ann P. on 06/27/2022

Very personable, super nice staff super clean building overall nice facility - Angela T. on 05/11/2022

All of the directors know my son and participate in/organize fun activities and events for all of the kids. The teachers have positive and helpful feedback about my sons learning and behaviors, they all treat him with kindness. He loves going to Kiddie Academy and playing with his teachers and classmates. The communication from the directors was a big selling point for me, I had looked at other facilities that barely responded to my emails for information so I knew they wouldn’t communicate about my child. I have not had that problem here, I’m updated every day he attends and the staff communicates well and responds quickly. I recommend Kiddie Academy to all of my friends! - Sara D. on 05/11/2022

I love how involved the whole staff is, from the owner, to the directors, to the teachers. My child was always so excited to go to daycare and she learned so much here, both in education and life skills. The structure and lesson plans are great, I love how we receive a end of day report about our child's day and what she learned/did. Our child has tried new foods, learned different languages, and how to play well with others and calm herself down when she is upset. This place is exceptional! - Kaylynn F. on 04/26/2022
