It revolves around the unique way each child learns.

Each day, every Kiddie Academy in our national network adapts our Life Essentials® philosophy to the way children learn- from the classroom to the home and back again. We take the unstoppable momentum of curiosity and focus it on teachable moments steeped in character education, STEM-infused technology, and health and fitness experiences. Life Essentials includes a proprietary curriculum that is regularly updated to not only meet, but exceed, state standards.

Life Essentials®

Every experience is an opportunity to learn. Life Essentials® is an overarching philosophy that includes our programs and techniques. From family style dining to character education, our developmentally appropriate curriculum gives your child a full day of learning no matter what he or she is doing. Some of the best learning happens without your child knowing it.

Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum
Our standards-based curriculum is designed to suit each stage of child development, from infancy to preschool, and up to the age of 12. Because with children, just six months can mean a world of difference in their development.
Health & Fitness
Good physical health is a critical component of brain development. We provide nutritious meals and ample playground time for physical activities.
Character Education
It’s never too early for kids to learn the values that will help them to develop into well-rounded citizens. Character education is crucial. So Life Essentials turns moments of interaction into moments of learning. From the playground to the classroom, we take every opportunity to teach your child important character-building cornerstones, including:

  • Respect
  • Friendship
  • Sharing
  • Compassion
  • Manners
Technology Education
We take advantage of the latest learning software and technology to make learning engaging and fun. Children learn age-appropriate developmental skills, along with computer literacy, a skill as essential as reading and writing.

Still Undecided on Your Childcare Options?

Put our more than 37 years of experience to work with our Choosing Child Care Checklist. We have included all of the criteria, considerations and even concerns you may have about selecting a child care facility to help you determine if a particular program or location is right for your family.

At Kiddie Academy, we have given all of these aspects of child care a great deal of thought. The development of our Life Essentials curriculum, character education standards and security measures were all influenced by a parents perspective.
