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 have been working with children in the early education field for over 20 years. I received my Bachelor's degree from Frostburg State University. My first job at 16 years old was as an aftercare counselor. I was blessed with a beautiful boy which redirected my path in life and led me to be being a preschool teacher for over 10 years. Afterwards, that path developed into a leadership role. As a parent and educator, I believe bringing up children is the most complex job you will ever have. I love being in and creating a caring and supportive environment that promotes optimal early childhood development.

Hello my name is Zahirah. I have always had a passion for teaching. My favorite pastime as a child was to play school with my cousins and I would always be the teacher. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Montclair State University. I also minored in American Sign Language. I have over 18 years experience in the education field. I have worked with children age ranging from 18 months- 16 years old. I am a proud mom of a beautiful baby girl named Aubrey Blu. I love art and creating masterpieces. My years in classrooms lead me to different leadership roles in childcare. I want to bestow my knowledge of classroom management and strategic teaching methods onto teachers so I can have an impact on not only children, but teachers as well. I am very excited to join the Kiddie Academy family because of its diversity in staff as well as students.

Hello! My name is Kaila, I am currently a student at UCC working on my degree in Journalism and PR. I've worked in education for the past 5 years as a floater, assistant teacher, and lead teacher for infants and toddlers- though most of my experience is with children between 12-24 months. I am a painter, avid book reader, gardener, and community helper! I love working at Kiddie Academy as it gives me the opportunity to broaden my understanding of childcare and the ins and outs of ho to run a center!

I have been working in the Early Childhood Education field for several years. It has always been a pleasure to work with all different ages of children. It makes me so happy to see the progress a child makes throughout the school year. I take pleasure in maintaining a relationship with families and being able to provide them with the best possible care for their child. I will always do my very best for the children as well as their families.
