Kiddie Academy of Almaden Valley

Review №1

My 3.5 year old daughter and 1 year old son attend Kiddie Academy of Almaden Valley. This is the third daycare my daughter has attended, and this is by far the best place for her. Not only is the facility new (it opened in 2019), the team there is so good with being extremely careful and doing their best at mitigating COVID-19 transmission, that it is also extremely clean and organized. The teachers wear masks and gloves and the efforts are made to social distance the children (to the best of their abilities). I like that they dont advertise brands (like Disney or Sesame Street), but rather focus on concepts/STEM. There are sensory walls and educational toys. The rooms are painted a certain color on purpose to bring calm into the classroom. Every little detail is well thought out. The facility also has cameras for parents to see their kids interacting in the classroom. The teachers are attuned to the childrens needs and are amazing educators. They provide amazing activities for the kids to do. The other day, our three year old talked to us about butterflies and plant life. The owners are also very involved, always listening for and responsive to feedback. This is a fun, loving, safe, educational environment for children to grow and thrive. I highly recommend this daycare/preschool!

New, beautiful facility with availability to check in on your child at any time. The owners are a very sweet, caring and giving couple. The staff is amazing! They are attentive, caring, compassionate, and engaged with the children.I am amazed at what they accomplish each day with all the children; from having everyone sit down and eat together to getting all the kids to nap happily together.No need to have second thoughts about enrolling your child here. It is our grandsons first preschool setting, and he is thriving and learning so much. He loves his teachers and going to school--- and that tells it all!!We are very thankful to everyone at Kiddie Academy for the care they give our grandson and for becoming part of our lives.

This is a new center and you wouldnt think so with how smoothly the place is run with the owners and the staff. Our daughter started when she was a year and half and when the center opened in the toddler/bunny room. We had an amazing experience with Honey and Jennifer!! We just transitioned to the twos/kangaroo room and our LO (& we) is supported with loads of love and encouragement.Tuition is comparable to other established centers and food is included in tuition!!!Big thanks to Jennifer & Rick (owners), Sonalika (Director) and the whole staff!!

It’s been three months since our baby girl joined the Panda infants room and it’s remarkable how much progress she made in such a short time. She is surrounded by very kind staff and awesome teachers. Her happy face when arriving at the daycare shows how much she enjoys to be there every morning and we could not ask for more! We would recommend the Kiddie Academy team of Almaden Valley to every parents looking for a daycare for their little ones.Thank you all for your great work and for taking so much care of her day after day.

Also posting the review I posted on Yelp since not everyone may go there:Okay - there are daycares and then there is Kiddie Academy. One word - EXCEPTIONAL.We recently moved into the neighborhood and came from another daycare that was touted as a top notch daycare and we did not know any better - until our kids started at Kiddle Academy @ Almaden.There are several aspects of Kiddie Academy that sets them apart from our other top-notch daycare:1. Great, low-churn staff - you know you have a good school/daycare when the same teacher sticks around for the whole year or several years. I mean, its not easy to take care of a bunch of toddlers all day unless the management makes it such that its fun and exciting. At Kiddie Academy, this is 100% true, they have absolutely amazing teachers and staff that are always welcoming. My little one starts yelling my teacher, my teacher the moment we near the school - it tells you how great they are2. Community-considerate - Kiddie Academy @ Almaden explicitly have made community a priority. They have numerous community events and most importantly for parents, have parents night out, where they keep all kids (even if one is not enrolled) through the evening so that us parents can grab a breather3. Low-maintenance events - My other much touted daycare made it a chore to keep up with all of the events whether it was teachers appreciation week or dr. seuss week, but Kiddie Academy @ Almaden knows how to do it right. They keep it simple - for teachers appreciation week, they just asked kids to bring something small (like a flower or hard written note) on just one day vs all days making it that much more enjoyable to appreciate and participate in the events4. Thoughtful during a pandemic - This probably should be #1 given the COVID situation. COVID happened, and the Kiddie Academy team @ Almaden did not flinch - first they made it clear to all families that they would not be charged tuition during the shelter-in-place (which I know a lot of other daycares did not do), second, they made every effort to open for essential families quickly and took care of them, third, they started optional zoom classes for those at home and finally, when they were allowed to reopen, they were gracious in the # of options they gave families and they implemented a wide range of safety checks and balances that really made us feel comfortable sending our kids there.overall - I cannot say enough good things about them, I really hope that every daycare/school learns from them and I wish them all the best as they continue to grow!

First, this place is incredible! Second, the importance of finding a place you can trust to care for the most important humans in your life is challenging.Kiddie academy allows me to put my mind at ease by utilizing the newest technology in childcare! With a user friendly app, I’m able to check in on my kiddos and see that they are safe and happy anytime throughout the day.I also receive daily photos and a detailed report at the end of each day that lists what they ate, if they napped and all of their daily activities.Bonus, the school provides a great variety of nutritions meals cooked onsite by a lovely lady, which crosses packing lunches off my list of things to do in the morning!Bonus-Bonus, the school hosts, what they refer to as, ‘parents night out’! Which means your kiddos get to hang out with their favorite teachers while you get to get some much needed YOU-time! And with the inflated baby-sitting prices in Almaden, this is the BEST!Today, my toddler had her favorite breakfast, chicken sandwich with spinach salad for lunch, painted, played with playdoh, foam and water, learned about the sun, tie dyed a shirt and so much more!
