Kiddie Academy-Approved Early Learning Toys

The holiday season is in full swing and it’s hard to walk around (or search the internet) without stumbling over a gift guide made by a blogger, magazine, celebrity or other all-knowing Santa-list expert trying to tell you what your loved ones are asking for from the Big Guy in Red.

By now, you probably have your “gifts for the decorator/trendsetter/teacher/gardener/golfer/outdoorsman/hostess/cook” all under the tree. But we know what your preschoolers, toddlers and infants are searching for in their stockings because we got the inside scoop on what they’ve been loving to play with at Kiddie Academy.

In partnership with Hatch Early Learning, Kiddie Academy’s preferred classroom supply vendor (the amazing product development team of early childhood education experts offering a roadmap of what children need to learn in play), we looked at their classroom best-sellers to see which products your kids covet the most.

Classroom materials and technology from Hatch foster skills in language arts and literacy, mathematics, science, gross motor and fine motor development, and character education. Take a look at the early learning toys we know your kids look forward to every day at Kiddie Academy, and could also play with at home this holiday season!
