The teachers have been fantastic and focus not only on playing or learning the standard numbers, letters, colors, etc. but on learning essential skills like compassion towards others, manners, and they promote creativity through daily activities.
How involved everyone is in the success of the child's development. From the floating staff to the administrators...there is a real comfort in knowing that your child is left in the hands of someone who will care for them genuinely with concern and with skill. With other daycare centers, we never experienced that and were always uneasy with their services. With the KA staff, I know my children are well cared for and will actually learn and grow academically once they enter the preschool program.
This center is just amazing! My son loves going there and never wants to go home when picked up!
Kids learn a lot of new vocabulary and many other things.. we just love this center!
I absolutely recommend it to everyone looking forward putting their kids in a daycare! Educational center..
Positive classroom management of the school aged classroom. Variety of resources including but not limited to: educational computer programs, manipulative such as blocks, reading materials and art supplies. I like the way community is fostered with the school aged classroom through the use of a group activity each day. Most recently a paper mache' project was completed over several days through collaboration between students. I am impressed by the effort and implementation of academic growth activities such as languages other than English being introduced and taught.
Most importantly to me is the relationship between my daughters and the Kiddie Academy professional within the room. Since coming to the center just months ago, Emily has built an exceptional program that encourages love of learning and expands on the already rigorous academics offered by Fairfax County Public Schools.
Emily is a dedicated teacher and her efforts to provide opportunities for learning in a fun way make my girls' time at Kiddie Academy all the more enjoyable!
I am so happy to have them be a part of the Kiddie Academy community and be nurtured by Emily each day.
