Educational child care provider to host free summertime educational activities

Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, is encouraging families to beat their summer boredom with fun and educational activities. Participating Kiddie Academies across the country are hosting a series of free community events beginning in July and continuing
through September: Storytime LIVE!, STEM Adventures and Music & More. These fun-filled events are open to the community and will fuse the magic of learning and the delight of summertime for children of all ages.

“‘Community Begins Here’ is the cornerstone of values we teach our Kiddie Academy students,” said CEO Greg Helwig. “During the past 16 months, our local communities became more important than ever before. We’re committed to being there for local families in their times of need, so we can keep normalcy, learning and socialization ongoing. That’s why we’re so excited to have families and children spend a day of their summer with the Kiddie Academy community, whether in person or virtually.”

Storytime LIVE! will bring favorite stories and characters to life. STEM Adventures invites children to participate in activities that show how learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math is exciting and enjoyable. Music & More encourages parents and children to enjoy the exploration of music, movement, art and more.

“We’re always looking for ways to build curiosity here at Kiddie Academy,” Joy Turner, vice president of education stated. “Whether it’s reading, math and science or the arts, there’s an activity to help curb that summertime boredom for children of all ages and keep learning going year-round.”
