Glenview is a village that has always been distinguished by its high-caliber schools and commitment to quality education. That’s why the new Kiddie Academy® of Glenview will be a perfect fit for this community.
Kiddie Academy of Glenview is locally owned and operated by Carol Siqueira. It’s part of a network of nearly 300 franchised Academies stretching from coast to coast. The company was founded 40 years ago and has earned a reputation as one of the most respected educational child care providers in the United States.
Carol and her staff at Kiddie Academy of Glenview, consider themselves first and foremost as caregivers. She says, “We believe care and learning should go hand in hand, and the two should always be balanced with a big dose of fun!”
The Kiddie Academy operating philosophy, Life Essentials®, is built around four pillars – a developmentally-appropriate curriculum developed by our own education experts; STEM-infused technology education; personal health and fitness; and character education. With the Life Essentials philosophy and curriculum as a guide, Kiddie Academy of Glenview’s teachers use their passion and creativity to nurture a healthy and active curiosity within children that encourages exploration and celebrates discovery in a way that makes learning fun, rewarding and extends it beyond the walls of the learning institution.
Carol says they are particularly proud of their focus on character education. The Academy’s Character EssentialsSM curriculum offers specific support for the social and emotional development of children beginning in infancy. She says their teachers are role models for character education, with every interaction providing an opportunity to model behaviors and traits for the children. Carol explains that by developing nurturing and supportive relationships with adults at this stage, young children learn about themselves and how to form positive, empathetic relationships with others.
