This school has been around for so many years, and continues to be the best in town for so many reasons. Incredible administrators, dedicated teachers, diverse curriculum experiences, leadership, morals, compassion, friendship, teaching children to grow into compassionate, caring, intelligent leaders and community members..... so many, many reasons. I'm proud to be part of the CA family!

The Ultimate Child Care Experience

There are so many reason to send your children to Children's Academy I could write a book. Here are three that set them above all other child care places. A dance company comes and teaches the students at the center. At the end of the year they have a recital that involves several centers throughout Tampa and even St. Pete. As a parent volunteer I was emotional and so proud because our students were absolutely the most well behaved. They were respectful, considerate, and just energetic as they waited to dance. As we were waiting for the final to begin our group of 15 (ages 4 - 7) stood in line and began to sign ""God Bless America"" (a song in which they sing everyday starting as early as 18 months) and then continued right into their school song. I cry everytime I here them sing it. I have worked at a high school for the past 12 years and the students that identify themselves as children's academy grads are always motivated and successful students. The field trips the students travel to are unique, academic, yet entertaining. I have heard from several different places that the students from Children's Academy are more behaved yet motivated to learn than other child care places. Several of the staff at Children's Academy have been there for years which says alot in the child care industry. You are missing out if you do not experience this kind of education for your child.

Highly Reccommended!!!

To be completely honest with you, I love Children's Academy & everything about it. Of coarse It wouldn't be anything without the teachers which are the BEST! They care about the kids as if they are their own children. The new owners are super great. Children's Academy was previously owned by Ms.Susana. She loved every single person that walked through the front door. She's very caring & will always be remembered! I fell in love with the new owners just as fast as I did with Ms.Susana. They're extremely nice & they don't just see it as a child care, It's like everyone's FAMILY! I feel so comfortable taking my child there & knowing that she's in great hands. If the slightest little concern happened I was notified IMMEDIATELY!!! They have extra activities for the children as well. My daughter fell in love with ballet. :)
I highly reccommend Children's Academy because It's not just your ordinary ""daycare"". It's like leaving your kid(s) at Grandma's/Grandpa's house. It's just comfortable. The best part Is you can come anytime and check up on your kid. I showed up several times a week to check up on her & It was amazing how well she did there. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!!! Children's Academy- My #1 Vote!!!

Going down hill...

My child has been at Childrens Academy since she was 18 months old. The place was owned
by Ms. Susana till last year once she sold out the place just does not have the same family feel
and not to mention the love. The teachers are AWESOME but, i just wonder how much longer they
will be sticking around too. Once they start pulling out we are gone too. I hate to knock the new
owners but, they are just to corporate for my taste. I know quite a few of the parent have already
gone and its really sad.

Still the Best Preschool in Town

Our family has been with Children's Academy through the days with Ms. Susana and now with the new owners. Ms. Susana is a very special person who can never be replaced, but the school has maintained its tremendous level of care and high educational standards because of its AWESOME teachers. The teachers and my child feel very good about the new owners...and I do too.

Not Corporate/ Small Town Feel

Both of our children have been at Children's Academy for over a year. The teacher's are AMAZING! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. The 18 mo teachertaught our youngest how to bloom and grow into a loving toddler!They go on great field trips beginning in the three year old class. They have a small ""farm"" (my oldest child's favorite). The hands on techniques applied at Children's Academy is admirable. The original owner has retired, she had a lot of heart and was always deeply concerned about not only the children, but about their parent's well-being-we miss that. Children's Academy still has a LOT of the original owner's heart though. They also have extra-curricular activities each month (there is an extra charge) like soccer, computers, piano, ballet. I recommend over and over. New owners nice- more business minded- a bit of a change, still worth it!
