As of December 10, 2020 we have changed our program name from Kids Express Learning Center to Hickory Hill Academy. The new name brings our long-standing early childhood program and growing elementary school together under one name, as one school for children from infancy through 8th grade.
"After our tour with Sandra, my husband and I spoke about KELC and HHA and realized that for the first time we were looking at a place that we want our daughter to learn and grow rather than just somewhere she has to be at while we are at work."

"I want to compliment the staff of my child's classroom. Each teacher in that room formed a unique and valuable relationship with my daughter this past year. I really felt like they had a genuine bond with her and cared about her during her day. It's such a good feeling to leave your child in that kind of environment before going off to work."
- CARRIE E.
"Now that my son has moved on to elementary school, we look back at how much we valued his education at KELC and HHA. We are really happy with how much he learned, the variety and the environment in which the material was presented, and just the wide range of topics covered. We feel it’s been instrumental in shaping his expectations of learning, and that will stay with him for life."

"My daughter enjoyed her stay with your center and loved those great teachers, friends, and activities, for which I'm very grateful and pleased. I'm sure that the experience with your center will be a life-long memorable thing for her.
I thank you for the help and wish you all the best!"

"I have to tell you how impressed I am (and other families are) that KELC and HHA did not compromise on what you believe is right for kids for the short term economic benefit. If that doesn't speak to your commitment to the kids at the center, I don't know what does!"
- HEIDI M.
"We thoroughly have enjoyed the excellent quality of teaching, care, enrichment, curriculum, leadership from Dr. Dahl, and the breadth of experiences our daughter has had at KELC and HHA for the past three years. We appreciate the professionalism and kindness that we feel her teachers have always provided over the years. We have recommended friends to KELC and HHA, and you have our highest recommendation from anyone who asks. Our son will continue to attend KELC and HHA.
Thank you for all that you do for KELC and HHA! "
