Community Essentials: Extending our Life Essentials curriculum beyond the classroom.

Community Essentials is how we put corporate social responsibility into action at Kiddie Academy. It’s defined by the way we treat each other in every setting and situation, the examples we set for the children in our care and the respect we pay to the environment our children are inheriting. We find developmentally appropriate ways to bring Community Essentials to life in and outside of our classrooms, engaging teachers, parents, and the community at large along the way.

Our Focus

We are always learning, collaborating, and seeking collective progress.

We have the power to shape our environments into positive communities that support healthy, productive families.

We can share meaningful experiences and grow together by helping others and protecting our natural resources.

Community Essentials in Action

In Partnership with Family Promise

As part of our corporate social responsibility efforts, we forged a partnership with national nonprofit Family Promise. Working together with Family Promise is just one of the ways we bring Community Essentials to life.

Family Promise shares our commitment to improve communities and build brighter futures for children. That’s why we’ve partnered with the nonprofit to empower families experiencing homelessness and set children up for success.

Together with Family Promise, we work to create fundraising and volunteerism opportunities that provide meaningful and inspiring experiences for both donors and recipients. Using an education-based approach, Family Promise affiliates, the Kiddie Academy franchise system, and our corporate office work in tandem to address housing and income inequalities that affect individual communities uniquely across the country.

Supporting Our Kiddie Academy Community

In times of emergency and hardship, our Kiddie Academy community comes together in incredible ways. Through philanthropic support, we’re able to raise up community members in need. Our disaster relief efforts are rooted in the belief that supporting one another when we are most vulnerable allows us to reach new heights together as we grow. Through philanthropy, we’re able to provide grants to team members in need to help them through life’s challenging moments.

The Kiddie Academy Community Fund helped me and my family get through my COVID-19 recovery. It meant so much to me that the company cares about their employees. The grant helped me with my bills and hospital bills I received during COVID-19. It’s unfortunate that things turned out this way, but I can truly say “I BEAT COVID.” I am thankful for my life and so appreciative of Kiddie Academy. Thank you!

Receiving support from the fund was great news and a huge blessing after the winter storms here in Texas.
