Great educating day care for my kid! Wonderful teachers and fun environment
Yuliya M., Virginia Beach

The KA staff are all amazing and I’m always at peace knowing my children are in a safe, caring, and fun environment!
Kelly B., Virginia Beach

I can see such a difference in how much Hazel explores, and it's clearly because she's been encouraged to do so, instead of just being a container baby.
Chelsea B., Virginia Beach

Every teacher and teaching assistant is incredibly attentive. All of the staff members really get to know each child. In addition, the center always plans fun extras! Like a visit from our city’s police horses.
Andrea R., Virginia Beach

kiddie academy is amazing! My kids love going there. The teachers and the staff are kind and caring. Another thing that I love is that I can see my kids menu for each day, the activities and most of all the security is impressive. Will recommend 100%
Whitney Q., Virginia Beach

The staff at Kiddie Academy are wonderful! They are very welcoming and everyone makes an effort to get to know you and your child even if they are not his/her primary teacher. Our kiddo has adapted really well to the schedule and he enjoys indoor and outdoor playtime as well as the structured learning activities.…

It’s fun for the kids that I don’t even know if they know how much they are actually learning each day, but remarkably each day I see growth.
