Kiddie Academy on Upton is the absolute best daycare/childcare center. All of the staff truly care about the kids and plan the best seasonal activities. Their dedication to ensuring all the kids have fun while learning is hard to find anywhere else. We moved from another center that had a supposedly great reputation and found their militant style to be in stark contrast with the friendly, approachable, kid first approach at Kiddie Academy. - Andrea R. on 11/01/2023

Kiddie Academy feels like home to us! The teachers, staff and director care about our son’s well-being and we appreciate all they do for our family. - Margo Savage M. on 11/01/2023

I like the independent work being sent him for pre-k. - Jennifer L. on 11/01/2023

I have nothing but good things to say about Kiddie Academy. Our two kids are thriving, and love going to daycare! The teachers are great, and communicate well with us. They also do lots of fun and enriching activities with the kids. - Megan P. on 11/01/2023

We love having our child in the Early Preschool program at Kiddie Academy. The administrators, faculty, teachers, and helpers are very loving and caring. Not only are they vigilant about watching over your children, they are dedicated to teaching them new things every day. We were thrilled when our kiddo—who originally had a speech delay—was coming home counting to 10 and reciting his ABCs. Kiddie Academy is an exceptional educational childcare facility. - Jessica W. on 11/01/2023

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. on 08/14/2023

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. on 07/31/2023

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. on 07/23/2023
