Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, has just opened its newest location in Watchung Square with a capacity for 214 children. This gorgeous 16,620 sqft stand alone facility includes a 3,300 sq ft dedicated indoor play area where kids can run, play and have tons of fun! For more than 28 years the company has been successful with combining learning with child care, said John Ao, Owner of Kiddie Academy of Watchung Square, located at 325 North Drive, North Plainfield, NJ 07060.
"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," Ao 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.
Ao 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 Watchung Square, 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 Watchung Square location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Spinelli, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.
"We are conveniently located right off Route 22 West, just 0.5 mile from Watchung Square mall. With the added benefit of our spacious facility and convenient location, we are pleased to offer great value and superior service to parents in the areas who seek high quality care and early childhood education for their kids. In Kiddie Academy of Watchung Square, we not just prepare kids for school, we prepare them for life!" Ao said.
