Kiddie Academy of Plantation Brings Home Life Essentials® Health & Fitness Award

November 11, 2020

Local educational child care facility Kiddie Academy of Plantation recently received the Life Essentials® Health & Fitness Award at Kiddie Academy’s Annual Conference, held virtually last month, where hundreds of franchisees from over 250+ Academies nationwide were considered for the award, which reflect efforts and contributions made in 2019.

Learning and encouraging health and fitness at a young age is a gift that lasts a lifetime, and good physical health is a critical component of brain development. The winner of the Life Essentials Health & Fitness award consistently provides nutritious meals and ample time for physical activities.

According to the CEO of Kiddie Academy, Greg Helwig, Kiddie Academy of Plantation incorporates Health and Fitness into every aspect of their Academy. They’ve created interactive displays where children practice healthy habits like brushing teeth, and incorporated outdoor activities that encourage teamwork and problem solving like sack races and obstacle courses. The Academy always finds a way to make a lesson fun and interactive, for example, by having the fire department spray down the playground during fire safety week and running snow machines during the winter months in Florida during outdoor learning.

“All Kiddie Academy franchisees share a passion for our industry, our brand, and the people who drive the company’s success every day. With so many dedicated professionals working to provide best-in-class early educational child care in an environment that fosters learning and development, as well as the highest safety standards, the ‘best of the best’ are truly doing an exceptional job,” states Helwig. “The team at Kiddie Academy of Plantation embodies the highest standards of professionalism and caring, and we are proud to recognize their contributions not only to Kiddie Academy, but also to so many Plantation families.”
