Each of the three new locations will join the Kiddie Academy system in using Life Essentials to focus on social/emotional, physical and cognitive outcomes which are aligned with state preschool standards. These standards are based on skills, knowledge and abilities that children achieve through developmentally appropriate activities and experiences.
