The whole staff is great! Jamie is the best at making every parent feel comfortable with leaving their child there. I am going to be very upset when my daughter graduates in a few years! My daughter had some separation issues at first and now she lovesssss her teachers and friends. She has reached so many milestones there. The playground is secure and safe, and the school itself is always immaculately clean. Way better than any other school I visited in the area.

I really love Kiddie Academy of Islip. Both of my children attended and I would highly recommend.  The teachers are awesome as they really prepare the children for kindergarten while also providing the nurturing environment that is also needed. The Director is very professional and very accommodating also. I love the daily reports that are sent to you every day regarding your child. My husband and I feel safe and secure leaving our children in their very capable hands.

I just want to sincerely thank all of you and all of Kiddie Acaddemy of Islip for making such a difference in my daughter's life.   She has learned so much in the short time she's been attending.  She knows all of her colors, shapes and numbers and many of her letters.  She has learned to share and work nicely with other children. I am amazed at her progress considering she only attends 2 days a week.  Your teachers are AMAZING!!  She will definately be in good shape and ahead of the game for Kindergarten, for that I am truly grateful.  I am very happy that I chose Kiddie Academy for my daughter's day care/pre-school experience.  And a speacial thank you to Miss Jamie, who is always willing to work out time missed due to illness or something out of control.  The staff @ Kiddie Academy of Islip is nothing short of AMAZING!!  Thank you all again!

When we moved to Long Island with our infant daughter, one of my biggest concerns was finding quality child care. Since not really having made enough mommie-friends to make an educated survey, I started researching online and visiting daycares in the area. None of the centers I visited though, left me feeling with enough peace of mind to walk away every morning being 100% comfortable leaving my little person behind. The last center we visited was Kiddie Academy of Islip. This one felt right the second my husband and I walked in. The kids all looked happy. They weren't simply being "watched". There was interaction on a personal level with all the children. The infant room teacher was gentle and experienced. The staff from top to bottom are all kind and genuine and involved.  We walked back to the car relieved. It wasn't the closest to our home but we'd definitely found the place. Highly recommended.

To the Kiddie Academy of Islip Staff,
You might have smiled and waved to our daughter, or you might have spent an entire school year with her. Some of you have watched her grow since she was 9 months old. You've potty trained her; taught her manners; how to be a good friend and student; how to love! She has been blessed with your kindness. You have shaped who she is. You've fed her; cleaned her boo boos; and held her when she was sick. For all of this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

I put my son in this center after another center he attended was unable to care for a health impairment. I cannot say a single bad thing about the level of care my son received. From his first day he was embraced as a member of the Kiddie Academy family. Now that he started kindergarten, he asked if he can go back for all his "kindergarten vacations". I'm proud to be a parent there and would recommend them to anyone.

I highly recommend checking out this daycare. My son has been at the Kiddie Academy of Islip Terrace since he was 3 months old. We have had nothing but positive experiences. The staff is wonderful. We frequently go home with artwork he has done and photos. We get daily updates and lots of feedback about his day. He receives fantastic care. The building is very, very clean, extremely well run, and the environment is very friendly and positive.

As an educator I have complete confidence and belief in the work that the teachers provide to the infant care at Kiddie Academy in Islip Terrace. When I pick up my niece I am updated on how she is progressing developmentally and I am told specifically how my niece has done. I fully recommend Kiddie Academy!!
