How We Began


Little Eagles Academy is the sister center of Creative Academy in Goldsboro.  In January 2018, we were afforded the opportunity to assume ownership of Kids Kollege, Inc. and later changed the name to Little Eagles Academy.  We introduced a new curriculum (Creative Curriculum)  and a child developmental assessment program to enhance the overall educational experience for children enrolled.
