It is likely that kids encounter many veterans on a regular basis without realizing it. Inspire your children with what it means to be a veteran, and the symbols, songs and pledges that define American patriotism.

Thank you to all the veterans that have served our country!

Tummy time is an important part of infant development as it is essential in strengthening the neck and shoulder muscles. This movement prepares your little one for future gross motor skills down the road like sitting and crawling. Our youngest friends at Kiddie Academy of Naperville enjoy tummy time and gain new skills each day!

While discovering Oobleck, children not only got to enjoy some sensory play - they also saw science concepts and worked on strengthening their fine motor skills!

The Kiddie Academy of Morrisville community embodied our Character Essentials®️ theme for the month of August, “We are Strong”, by hosting a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand! This foundation provides support for families of children who are fighting cancer and funds research into treatments and cures for childhood cancers.

“We raised $1,000 -- almost 20 research hours at facilities like Duke University Medical Center and University of North Carolina, two major contributors to childhood cancer research that are right in our back yard. We are so grateful to our generous families, staff, and students who donated time and resources to a worthy organization. We plan to make this an annual fundraiser and hope to grow with each passing year.”

Want to know the secret to teaching your kids confidence? Positive self-talk. The words we utter aloud have more impact than we realize.

Our Story

Are you completely satisfied with your current childcare situation? Is your child being challenged to meet his/her full potential in a structured but warm and nurturing classroom environment? Does your child ask if today is a school day? Kiddie Academy parents say yes!
Our infant and toddlers spend the day with warm, mature caregivers who understand the developmental stages of young children. They encourage each child's individual growth while providing parents with guidance as they work to achieve important milestones. The children communication with sign language reducing frustration levels while their verbal skills emerge.

Our terrific twos enjoy a balance of nurturing and fun while exploring educational concepts. Large group instruction is introduced in playful ways that allow the children to learn to communicate, cooperate and share. Alphabet, color and shape recognition as well as calendar concepts are mastered during this year...and let's not forget about potty training.
Our preschool and pre-kindergarten students are lead by a bachelor- or master-degreed teacher who has all of the tools needed to deliver the highest level of learning. Children sing songs about the sounds letters make, strengthen their fine-motor muscles to allow for neat handwriting, explore math concepts in everyday applications, participate in science experiments and discovery, and so much more. Every child receives small group computer instruction on a weekly basis.

You'll be amazed how our top-notch language arts program delivers on its promise to grow exceptional readers. The children also explore, manipulate and investigate math concepts and apply them to everyday uses.

Our School Age students enjoy before and after care inclusive of delayed openings and early releases. An afternoon snack is provided each day while a hot lunch is provided on early release days. Daily homework help is also available. Care is offered on the many days school is closed.
