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.
Each Academy is a little different. Here's what makes us unique:

Hello, we are life time educators from Garland, Texas. Our love of children, education, and the dream of having our own school makes Kiddie Academy of Rockwall the best of all worlds. Perry has over 25 years of experience as a teacher and prekindergarten through 12th grade curriculum and instructional technology consultant. Lisa has over 20 years as an elementary teacher. Our goal is to provide the finest educational child care in the Lake Ray Hubbard area. We have 3 children and 4 sweet grandchildren. Children have always been an important blessing and priority in our lives. Because of our strong love of education, children, and family we decided that preschool ownership would be the perfect fit for us. We began researching to learn as much as we could about different philosophies and characteristics of various preschools. After careful evaluation and much prayer, we agreed that Kiddie Academy met all the credentials we wanted as owners of a preschool. Kiddie Academy is educationally focused with the highest quality child care available!! We found what we were looking for in Kiddie Academy and know that the parents we serve and the children we care for will feel the same way!! As owners we are dedicated to providing a caring and nurturing environment, which promotes learning and growth for each and every child at our Kiddie Academy!!!

I have been a part of the teaching community for over 12 years. I started my teaching path by working at a local camp where I taught children as young as 3.5 years of age how to ride horses. From there I grew from a summer counselor to Assistant Director of After School Programs and Summer Camp. Tom Sawyer Camps opened many doors for me and soon became an Assistant teacher for grades 2nd-6th. I attended Cal State, Northridge where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Child and Adolescent Development and Psychology. My husband Mike and 3-year-old son Jack live locally where we spend most of our weekends just enjoying each other's company and really doing weekend chores! For fun, and just a moment of breath, I love getting my nails done and making runs to Target that often lead to over shopping and unnecessary spending! Kiddie Acadamy is my new adventure and opportunity to be close to my son and seeking more growth in my ever-developing teaching world. I am excited to be apart of this wonderful community of Managers, teachers and families.

Other than that we have enjoyed our experience with kiddie academy and will recommend to friends in the future.… ”
