Hear from our parents

The staff is amazing and so friendly!!! I'm so glad we were able to get our son in at this location!
Cary E., Wilmington

We have been there for almost five years and we are excited about the activities with the summer camp. COVID was well managed. I prefer to see the masks go away for children, but I understand state and federal mandates.
Stacy A., Wilmington

Our kids have learned a tremendous amount, but above all - they have a blast every day. That's thanks to the wonderful teachers, admins, and the facilities. Splash pad? Soccer? Art class? How could you not love school? I also appreciate the diverse and healthy meals provided. As a busy working mom, breakfast/lunch/snack at school…
Ali G., Wilmington

How much the teachers love our kids❤️
Ashlee H., Wilmington

I like that there is a curriculum that they follow. My youngest son has learned so much more than my older son did at a traditional daycare.
Troy B., Wilmington

We love all of the teachers and staff at Kiddie Academy! Our kids learn so much there each day and are always so excited to go each morning!
Samantha T., Wilmington

The teachers & entire staff are so caring & wonderful. All the staff know most of the kids by name and go out of their way to connect with kids when they see them in the hallways. There is structure & predictability for the kids. But there is a new theme for learning & education…
Dana F., Wilmington

Very involved. Lots of learning opportunities for the children.
Felisha W., Wilmington

All team members are kind and nice and a great menu and a lot of activities with great outside space.
Jessica P., Wilmington

My daughter loves going to school each morning! KA has so many fun activities and the staff truly love the children. I am so lucky to have enrolled my daughter here!
