The New Gingerbread Kids’ Academy Opens in Richmond

Gingerbread Kids’ Academy

There’s a new kid in town when it comes to early childhood education: The Gingerbread Kids’ Academy. Located at 814 FM 2977 (Mennonite Road) in Richmond, the new 10,000 square foot children’s academy is the newest location in the Gingerbread family. The original center, located on 4th Street in Rosenberg, now has a new, state-of-the-art location to serve the Richmond/Sugar Land area.

Featuring seven unique classrooms dedicated to educating children, two multi-purpose rooms, a full-service kitchen, six age-appropriate playgrounds and a water splash pad, the new Gingerbread Kids’ Academy will accommodate children from eight weeks to 12 years-old. Programs include infant and toddlers, pre-school, a private, full day Pre-Kindergarten for ages three to five and an after school program with pick-up from Thomas, Meyers and Williams Elementary.

“Expanding our Gingerbread family with this new location that allows us to care for and educate even more children has always been a personal goal of mine,” said Kathryn Kaminski, who has been in the child care and education industry for nearly thirty-five years and is a current Lamar Consolidated ISD board member. “We are very excited to open our second location in the Richmond/Rosenberg and Sugar Land area and offer a private, full day Pre-Kindergarten. Early learning is vital to preparing children for school, and with our two Pre-Kindergarten programs, we can help our students transition successfully into Kindergarten.”

The new academy will also feature three summer camp sessions for ages Kindergarten through fifth grade. Camp GKA is an all-day summer camp from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and features field trips, sports, games, movie days, dance and music. Theme weeks will focus on space, wilderness and science adventures, and the on-site water splash pad will add to the summer fun. “With our splash pad, we have created an outdoor sensory experience that kids will love, especially during the hot summer months,” said Tim Kaminski,  co-owner and director of the Gingerbread Kids’ Academy.

The Gingerbread Kids’ Academy is currently accepting enrollments for all age groups and for Fall 2014 Pre-K, as well as for their summer camp programs. To schedule a private tour or to enroll, call 281-239-2110 or e-mail
