Learn & Explore
Kids Academy was established to provide quality child care and education for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. We recognize the importance for the balance of mental, physical and emotional growth through a variety of creative experiences. Our curriculum is designed to provide vital learning experiences through exposure to music, art, science, and cultural diversity. Each lesson is constructed to emphasize developmentally appropriate learning exercises and to encourage problem solving skills while testing new behaviors in a secure environment. Kids Academy does not simply provide care, but attends to the total developmental needs of your child.

STEP UP TO QUALITY ONE-STAR RATED
Your child is enrolled, or you may be considering enrolling your child, in a learning and development program with a level of quality that exceeds Ohio’s child care licensing standards. High-quality learning and development programs are important because early experiences last a lifetime. Your child has approximately 1,892 days from the time he or she is born until kindergarten. What happens on this journey lays the foundation for success in school and life. A Step Up To Quality One-Star rated program means your child is in a program where:
• The administrator, lead teachers and assistant teachers complete 20 hours of specialized training every two years. The administrator and teaching staff are committed to expanding their knowledge and skills to better support your child’s development and learning.
• Teachers are familiar with Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards. Program staff members are aware that these standards are important to child development and they use this information to support your child’s growth and learning.
• Relationship-building with families is valued. The program administrators and staff build relationships with families and share information with families about community services and resources.
• Administrators are committed to continuous improvement. The staff strives to continuously improve the program and staff members look for ways to make their good program even better. By conducting self-assessments, the program staff members identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.
