Note that most Kiddie Academy locations offer two-, three-, and/or four-day part-time childcare options, while some also offer half days.[2]

Additionally, some Kiddie Academy locations only offer full-time childcare.[2]

Additional Costs

Like tuition, additional costs vary by location. However, there are a few fee types you can expect to pay at Kiddie Academy; we detail them below.

Registration Fees

Every location we contacted requires a registration fee, though some offer promotional periods during which they waive this fee.[2]

Prices range from $175 to $200 per child.[2]

Some locations charge a reduced rate when multiple children are enrolling, such as $50 per additional child or $300 total for all children.[2]

Curriculum Fees

Some Kiddie Academy locations charge an annual curriculum fee of $100. This covers academic supplies — such as crayons, pencils, paper, etc. — used for educational activities and lessons.[2]

Deposits

Some locations require a deposit, which is the first week’s tuition or the first and last week’s tuition.[2]

If the school requires the last week’s tuition as a deposit, it’ll hold the deposit until you give notice that you plan to unenroll your child. The amount will then be put toward your child’s last week at Kiddie Academy.[2]

Tuition Discounts

Some Kiddie Academy locations provide discounts to eligible families.

We found the following options in the course of our research:

  • Corporate discounts: Some Kiddie Academy locations will reduce your child’s tuition by a set percentage if you work for select businesses.[3][4]
  • Multiple child discount: Most locations we spoke with offer 5% or 10% off of tuition for the oldest child when enrolling more than one.[2]
  • Military and first responder discount: Some locations will reduce your child’s tuition by around 10% if you serve in the military or as a first responder.[5][2]

Payment Method and Schedule

Each Kiddie Academy is individually owned and operated, meaning that owners set their own payment guidelines.[6]

Some locations we contacted require weekly tuition payments, while others require monthly payments.[2]

Acceptable methods of payment also vary by location.[2]
