Professional Development

Kiddie Paradise Academy was developed exclusively for Kiddie Paradise educators and employees. This training academy was established by the Director to develop, enhance, and support the educational growth and enrichment of our staff. Teachers participate in an array of classes monthly in child development, classroom management, professionalism, curriculum development, health and safety issues, current events and other early childhood education practices and topics.

These classes are taught by our Educational Director, Sylvia Mills, who has over 40 years experience as an educator in the District of Columbia. She is also a certified local and national teacher trainer.
