Having Fun While Learning

At Kiddie Academy, we believe care and learning should go hand in hand, and the two should always be balanced. Our curriculum focuses on activity-based, hands-on learning that makes it fun for children and teachers. Kiddie Academy's Life Essentials curriculum is based on four pillars of education: Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum, Technology, Health & Fitness and Character Education.

Lesson plans are organized into weekly themes and are explored throughout all subject areas and activity learning.

Technology in the Classroom

Kiddie Academy is staying ahead of the curve with a daily reporting application that functions on Apple® devices. Instead of filling out paper forms, teachers use this intuitive app to document children's sleep, eating habits, activities, etc. It even allows teachers to take photos and videos of memorable moments! At the end of each day, when a child leaves, this report is automatically sent out to the child's parent(s) and/or guardian(s). This fun and environmentally friendly initiative has been a huge success and is very popular among teachers and parents alike.

Feel free to reach out to us by filling out the application inquiry!
