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.
Infants have individual personalities. We help bring them to light.
Toddlers are extremely active. We keep them actively learning.
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.

We have four children of our own and have had challenges in finding high quality, educational childcare options for our children. We discovered Kiddie Academy after talking with another parent and we were so impressed with the nationally accredited Life Essentials curriculum that we decided to pursue our dream of starting a business. Kiddie Academy combines our love for children with our desire to help shape good citizens for the future.
