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.
School-age children are curious about the world. We help them decipher it.

We are very excited to be a part of the Kiddie Academy Family. Brad has worked in the financial field for over 25 years and Diane has been a part of Kiddie Academy staff since spring of 2013. We were interested in starting a business and, with Diane working at Kiddie Academy, we fell in love with not only Kiddie Academy but especially the one in Plumsteadville. The timing was perfect for the previous owners to retire and for us to step in as new owners. We are very excited to continue the wonderful educational system that is already in place. We love to watch the children grow and develop. Thank you to all the families for making us feel so welcome!

Hi. My name is Kelsey Cressman. I have worked with children in different ways for many years. I worked in camp ministry for 4 years, in a family doctors office for 2 years, and in various child care facilities before joining the Kiddie Academy team in the fall of 2013. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology in January 2019. I love being a part of this family and watching each of the children learn and grow each and every day. Outside of Kiddie Academy, I enjoy sports of any kind, whether watching or playing, reading and spending time with my family!
