Kiddie Academy Now Open and Enrolling in Erie

Erie, CO (Grassroots Newswire) May 25, 2017 — Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, opened its newest location in Erie, Colorado on Monday, May 22 with a capacity for 145 children. The new 9,000 square foot Academy located at 641 Mitchell Way, Erie, Colorado 80516, is owned and operated by a husband-wife team of franchisees, Tarah and Jeff Haverkate.

Under the leadership of Director, Autumn Sutton, the Kiddie Academy of Erie is licensed to serve children 6 weeks to 6 years old with nine classrooms. “Our well-trained, attentive staff assists children in developing the confidence and self-esteem necessary to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Our philosophy at Kiddie Academy is that care and learning go hand in hand,” Owner, Tarah Haverkate said. “We also believe that it’s extremely important to foster bonds between not only our educators and children, but between educators and parents, academies and the local community.”

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), children’s learning and development is enhanced when they make choices and guide their own experiences through their individual interests, personalities and skills. Children’s learning occurs through planned and spontaneous experiences, during their participation in daily routines and through their experience of positive modeling by adults and peers.

Owner, Jeff Haverkate says that’s exactly Kiddie Academy’s focus. “The assortment of activities we have available for young children is endless, which encourages them to learn, play and explore. When children attend Kiddie Academy of Erie, they will acquire the skills and strength of character that will foster their success in school and in life.”

Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with the idea to combine learning with child care, and a commitment to be a leader in the industry. Kiddie Academy developed a comprehensive educational child care program for its Academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for high-quality, premier child care. The Erie location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to the Haverkates, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.

“We invite children to embark on a journey with Kiddie Academy that will prepare them for success in school and beyond,” said Academy Director, Autumn Sutton. For more information about Kiddie Academy of Erie, please contact Director, Autumn Sutton at 303-828-1030 or email the Academy at
