Kiddie Academy Educational Child Care places the utmost priority on the health and safety of the children in our care, our team members, and the families we serve.
In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, we created and implemented Health Essentials, a set of standard operating procedures that can help mitigate the spread of potential infection throughout our Academies. Health Essentials expands upon existing disinfection and health protocols that offer parents and staff peace of mind and demonstrates our commitment to creating a healthy and safe environment for learning and working.
In addition, we strongly encourage our staff, as well as the owners of all Kiddie Academy locations around the country and their staffs, to work with local health departments to develop a COVID-19 vaccine plan for themselves. We are proud to announce that the vaccination of some Kiddie Academy staff has already begun.

We know that even under ideal circumstances, finding an educational child care provider who you trust is a serious life eventdecision. But trying to find someone you trust during a pandemic presents even more challenges.
Fortunately, many Kiddie Academy locations have normalized the virtual tour and digital enrollment process to make things as easy, yet informative and comforting, as possible for you and your child.
For more information about how to tour virtually, what to look for and what to ask, download our guide “Choosing Child Care When You Can’t Tour.”
In order to address families’ needs for care during the day as their school-age children began virtual learning through their local school systems, we created a full-day school-age program. Through attentive supervision by trained teachers, the virtual learning environment at Kiddie Academy set elementary-aged children up for success in a comfortable, healthy environment and gives parents the child care support they need as local school districts implement virtual learning.
We know many children are at home with their parents or caregivers during this time. And while we believe there is no substitute quite like an in-person educational child care experience at Kiddie Academy, it’s important to us that young children are always learning and have access to our industry-leading Life Essentials® curriculum. We launched Life Essentials At Home to provide busy caregivers with easy and effective activities they can do with their child, from infants through school-agers.
We also created a parent resources portal for more expert advice on working from home with kids, setting up a virtual learning environment at home, teaching children to use technology responsibly and more.
