These growing minds got their groove on!
Dozens of tots cut a rug, tapped their creative sides, and struck a pose on Saturday at the grand-opening party for a new private learning center in Williamsburg that serves some of Brooklyn’s youngest, according to its head honcho.
“They enjoyed every minute of dancing, craft-making, and playing games with one of our teachers,” said Howard Chen, the chief of Kiddie Academy, which offers a range of educational child-care programs for children aged less than 1-year-old through 12-years-old. “A fun addition to the event was the photo booth, where families used handmade props to capture memorable moments.”
A crowd of roughly 60 parents and kids attended the event welcoming the nationally recognized company’s first Kings County outpost on S. Fifth Street near Marcy Avenue to the nabe — which Chen, a self-proclaimed former resident, chose because of its growing number of discerning moms and dads, he said.
“Williamsburg is a place where I lived and love,” he said. “In this neighborhood, parents are looking for the highest quality of childcare and education for their children.”
The center offers before- and after-school programs as well as summer camps, all of which give youngsters a head start on learning skills they’ll need throughout their lives, Chen said.
“Kiddie Academy’s programs and activities help prepare children for life,” he said.
