Hear from our parents

The teachers and support staff are always welcoming, helpful, and pumped for the kids in whatever their passions are.
Jessica F., Wilmington

Kiddie Academy has been a blessing for our family. Our child enjoys coming to school daily and has built wonderful relationships with other students and staff. Kiddie Academy is more than just childcare... it is a school that is truly preparing our child for life as a life-long learned.
Allison D., Wilmington

Great place! Love how much they are involved with the children and teach them so much! The meals/snacks are awesome too! Great mix of everything. Thank you
Rick C., Wilmington

I fell it is a safe, nurturing, and academically focused environment.
Hunter M., Wilmington

Great activities and learning opportunities for kids! Good variety of healthy foods for breakfast and lunch. And a staff that really cares!
Rebecca S., Wilmington

I Love the KA staff... we have come a long way since we started there. It is pricier than others but I also understand you pay for what you get. $310 a week is a LOT of money and that is the only reason I gave a 9. Love KA though
Eryn J., Wilmington

We love the outside time that the children get, and the hands-on gardening. We love that (unlike some schools we've been with) KA does not follow the local public school district calendar, such that the kids take weeks of vacation each year (Thanksgiving week, Spring Break, Inservice Days, etc), and the parents are paying for…
Adam B., Wilmington

Everything, we love the teachers, the directors, the curriculum, the activities. This is the best facility in Wilmington hands down! We are so grateful for Kiddie Academy.
Stephanie B., Wilmington

I absolutely love the pre-k program. Woodley is ready for kindergarten and is even ahead of grade level ! Ms. Kayla is the best
Maribeth J., Wilmington

I like that the teachers are so involved with the kids.
