Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week!

Kiddie Academy locations across the country are gearing up for Random Acts of Kindness Week! From February 13-19, join us for fun activities and spreading a little extra kindness!

Here at Kiddie Academy, we believe character education matters and have adopted Random Acts of Kindness week as a fun way to teach children about caring for others. The Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation took off in the 1990s in pursuit of a mission to “make kindness the norm.” A small nonprofit based in Colorado, the RAK Foundation believes all people can connect through kindness and that kindness can be taught. Now, Random Acts of Kindness week is an annual celebration working towards creating a kinder world.

Through our Kiddie Academy Character EssentialsSM curriculum, we teach common values and character traits to children with the intention of helping them develop into moral, caring and responsible citizens. Random Acts of Kindness week is just one way we nurture kindness in children, encouraging good deeds in and outside of the classroom.
