Kiddie Academy® Opens in Round Rock
Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Round Rock, TX. For more than 35 years the company has been successful with combining learning with child care, said Eric Ng, Owner of Kiddie Academy of Round Rock, located at 5080 North AW Grimes Boulevard. The Academy is the second Texas location for its owners who also own and operate the nearby highly rated and NAEYC accredited Kiddie Academy of Pflugerville.
“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,” Ng 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.
Ng 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 Round Rock, they will acquire the skills and strength of character that will foster their success.”
Kiddie Academy of Round Rock is a state of the art facility; its design incorporates a functional purpose that puts the safety of our families and educators in the forefront of everyone’s mind. Moreover, the Kiddie Academy of Round Rock offers a full food service menu, 3 outdoor play areas separated by age group, secured entry, and the latest educational based technology in every classroom. The Round Rock location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. Through a personal experience in implementing the Kiddie Academy early childhood education program at a previous center, Ng believes that the program’s key strength is an emphasis of continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.
“We are thrilled to expand the Kiddie Academy brand in the Austin area. We would not be able to achieve this great success without the continued support of the surrounding community, and the dedication of our staff.” Ng said.
