Kiddie Academy, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Midlothian with a capacity for 137 children. For more than twenty-eigh years, the company has been successful combining learning with childcare, said Erika Jackson, director of Kiddie Academy of Midlothian, located at 6801 Woodlake Commons Loop.
“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,” Jackson 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.
Jackson 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 Midlothian, 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 Midlothian location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Jackson, 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,” Jackson said.
