Located in Huntington Beach, CA, Kellie's Academy for Kids provides high quality childcare programs for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 14 years of age.
Why Choose Us? We provide an environment that is safe, trusting, healthy, nurturing and educational. We embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of all children. We believe that building self-esteem through patience, love, and an understanding of the total child is invaluable to their development.
Our curriculum builds not only your child's self esteem, but also the intellectual, physical, social and emotional aspects of their development that will lead to success in future schooling and in life. This curriculum is designed to ensure that your child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our program utilizes both a developmental approach along with an emphasis on academics.
We believe children are constantly learning and offer a wide variety of activities to stimulate their natural curiosity. They are encouraged to explore their environment by using "hands on" experiences through which they gain knowledge and a greater understanding of their world. This is key in promoting self-esteem. The social-emotional aspect of our program is one of the most valuable experiences your child will gain. Children are the key to our future, we are privileged to be a part of it. We want the absolute best for the children in our care, always. It is what we strive for, it is who we are. Welcome.
