Kiddie Academy® Opens in Farmingville
National child care learning company expands footprint on Long Island
Farmingville, NY (February 15, 2018) — Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Farmingville. Owner Syed Zohairuddin was joined by staff members from the office of Legislator Tom Muratore and New York State Senator Tom Croci and the Farmingville Hills Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon cutting ceremony on February 5.
“For more than 35 years Kiddie Academy has been successful with combining learning with child care,” said Zohairuddin. Kiddie Academy of Farmingville is located at 2270 North Ocean Avenue, Farmingville, NY 11738. This is the 13th Kiddie Academy on Long Island. The 10,457-square-foot academy has 12 classrooms and is licensed to serve 145 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
“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,” Zohairuddin 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 Childcare Accreditation Council, 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.
Zohairuddin says that’s exactly Kiddie Academy’s focus. “The assortment of activities we have available for the children is endless, which encourages them to learn, play and explore. When children attend Kiddie Academy of Farmingville, they will acquire the skills and strength of character that will foster their success.”
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 education-based child care program for its academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for child care. The Farmingville location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Zohairuddin, 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,” Zohairuddin said.
