Hello, my name is Karen Krupka and along with my husband Ron, we are the
owners of Kiddie Academy of Islip.
We want to thank our families here at Islip for the trust and confidence you
have placed in us by bringing your children to our Academy every day.
Our focus has been and continues to be providing your children with a caring and
educational environment. Over the past year, we have improved every aspect of
the Academy. We have built a staff of talented and engaged educators who
facilitate learning throughout the day. We have significantly upgraded our
facility and renewed our entire team's focus on customer service. In turn, many
of you have given us positive feedback about your experience with the new
management here. The Academy is a warm, nurturing and safe place for the
community's children to learn.
As franchise owner/operators of Kiddie Academy locations in both Islip and
Greenlawn, we are committed to providing high quality child care to the families
we serve. We invite you to visit our Academy and see for yourself the great
things that happen every day, with each child in our care.
my name is Jamie Cagna and caring for children is my passion. As Director for
Kiddie Academy of Islip, I will focus our team on creating the best positive
learning experience for each child while encouraging creativity and ensuring
safety for all of our children.
I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 12 years. I last
held the position of Assistant Director for a private preschool in West Palm
Beach, Florida and have also directly worked with children here on Long Island
in teaching positions with other learning centers and in public schools. My
formal educational background includes a BA in Psychology from Dowling College
as well as a Masters Degree in Childhood Education from Long Island University.
Along the way I became a mother and my daughter has certainly given me a new
perspective and understanding of what it means to be a parent. I have always
been able to share and relate to parents but now I am mostly speaking first
hand! My varied experiences and education have given me tremendous knowledge in
providing a safe and healthy learning environment for your children.
I value the wonderful staff we have here at Kiddie Academy, as well as the
supportive and nurturing group of people that are part of our management team. I
enjoy coming to work each day and my favorite part of Early Childhood Education
has always been watching the continuous growth of each individual child. I look
forward to building strong relationships with the families that are part of our
Academy! My goal is to make sure every child is always safe, nurtured and
receives the educational experiences they deserve. I would love for you to stop
by to meet our staff and see why Kiddie Academy of Islip is the right choice for
