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

I grew up in Massachusetts and attended Westfield State University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology while minoring in Women’s Studies and Communications. For several years, I was employed as a Nanny, before being hired as a Toddler Teacher at Kiddie Academy’s location in Hoboken where I received Teacher of the Year for 2016. I soon relocated to the Secaucus location as Assistant Director of Education and am currently the Center Director. I am passionate about Early Childhood Education and believe learning should be fun!

I have been working with children for a total of 15 years. I began with babysitting children of family and friends and progressed into the childcare environment in 2011. I have enjoyed every minute molding the minds of the children and helping them reach each and every appropriate milestone. I have an AA in Early Childhood Education and a BA in Family and Child Studies from Montclair State University and I am P-3 Certified in the state of NJ. My heart has always lead me to children. The knowledge that I helped them prepare for the next chapter in their young lives has always been a reward and a blessing for me. Recently, I became the assistant director of education, where I am looking forward to strengthening the implementation of the life essentials curriculum.
“The teachers are extremely professional and genuinely care about the children in their care. They create fun activities for the students and structure the day so there is art, music and physical activity in addition to story time and other learning fun. Everyone we've encountered has been wonderful and I would highly recommend Kiddie Academy… ”
Emily P., Secaucus
“My association with KA Secaucus goes back since 2015 when my elder son was part of the After care group. It was the most safest and secure place for us. Later on, my younger one started at the age of 1 and can't believe he is graduating KA Kindergarten this June 2022! A great place… ”

Archana B., Secaucus
“Teachers and staff are caring and willing to accommodate our needs. Overall we are very happy. With reopening of offices in the US, my only request is that KA goes back to the regular hours as well. ”
Sasan T., Secaucus
“We and our daughter loves KAS so far. Her teachers have been great. the only and only thing that I feel is missing here is the lack of an outdoor play area. I wish they can work it out with their landlords to get one or with the parents for donations to build one. ”
