Kiddie Academy® Opens in Hillsborough

National child care learning company now open and enrolling in Hillsborough

Hillsborough, NJ (May 16, 2018)Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Hillsborough. Owners Trusha and Jay Surti and Ananth and Hetal Rao were joined by Mayor Gloria McCauley and other representatives from Hillsborough Township for a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 21st.

“For more than 35 years Kiddie Academy has been successful with combining learning with child care,” said Trusha Surti. Kiddie Academy of Hillsborough is located at 716 Route 206. The 8,500-square-foot academy has 8 classrooms and is licensed to serve 146 children ages 6 weeks to 12 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,” Surti 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.

Surti 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 Hillsborough, 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 Hillsborough location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Surti, 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,” Surti said.
