Kiddie Academy® of Vancouver-Salmon Creek Coming Soon

Nationally Recognized Educational Child Care Provider Breaks Ground in Vancouver, Washington

February 27, 2019 // // Vancouver, WA - Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, is opening a new location in Vancouver. Kiddie Academy of Vancouver-Salmon Creek will be owned and operated by John Swartz. The new Academy will be located at 2203 NE 129th Street Vancouver, WA 98686 and is scheduled to open this summer.

"We’re excited to have the opportunity to bring Kiddie Academy’s advanced STEM curriculum and philosophies to children and families of the Vancouver/Salmon Creek/Ridgefield area," said John Swartz, owner of Kiddie Academy of Vancouver-Salmon Creek. “Our goal at Kiddie Academy is to feed a child’s curiosity and instinct to learn. Our team is dedicated to delivering the highest quality educational child care possible to positively shape the lives of the children and families of the Vancouver community.”

To celebrate the groundbreaking of the new learning center, Kiddie Academy of Vancouver-Salmon Creek conducted a groundbreaking ceremony on February 15. Ryan Pricco, director of public policy & advocacy for Child Care Aware, was a special guest at the event. Swartz and Pricco have had the pleasure of working together on the State of Washington’s Child Care Collaborative Task Force to help solve the child care accessibility crisis state-wide. Additionally, culinary students from Vancouver Public Schools Career and Technical Education Program provided delicious appetizers for guests attending the groundbreaking ceremony.

“We believe that opportunities to teach and expand young minds present themselves every day and everywhere,” notes Greg Helwig, president of Kiddie Academy. “Kiddie Academy empowers children with valuable tools to help make the most of those opportunities and we aim to foster a fascination for learning in the classroom, at home and throughout the community.”

Since its inception in 1981, Kiddie Academy has been grounded in the vision to create a community that shapes and inspires children for the future. Kiddie Academy of Vancouver-Salmon Creek joins a network of 210+ locations nationwide, with over 40 new Academes projected to open within the next year. The Vancouver-Salmon Creek location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum, which promotes each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Swartz, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.
