Koala Kids Academy mission statement: Koala Kids Academy is dedicated to providing high quality childcare that offers a well balanced, fun and diverse learning atmosphere that will help each child develop their own creativity in a safe, loving environment.
Our goal is to nurture children and to help each child develop a positive self-image, age appropriate independence, and self-discipline.

Koala Kids Academy is open to Melaleuca’s associate’s children as well as the public. Koala Kids Academy does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, or national origin. The minimum age for participation in the program is 6 weeks. Children may attend up through 6th grade. Parents interested in enrolling their children when limited space is available, will be placed on a waiting list arranged on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date interest was expressed.
Koala Kids Academy has been voted the #1 daycare in Idaho Falls for two years in a row by the 2012 and 2013 Post Register’s People Choice Award.
Background checks are mandatory for all staff members. You will be pleased to know that all of our staff is experienced in working with children. Every staff member is CPR and first aid certified with certification renewals every 2 years. All staff members are required to:
1. Pass a criminal history background check.
2. Maintain a current CPR infant/child certification.
3. Attend monthly staff meetings
4. Attend 4 hours of early child development training each year
5. Designated drivers will maintain a current CDL license (with passenger endorsement.)
We believe that to maximize the learning atmosphere for each child, the staff to child ratios should not exceed the following guidelines:
Infants - One staff member to 4 infants
Walkers-2 year old - One staff member to 6 children
25-36 months - One staff member to 8 children
3-4 year olds - One staff member to 12 children
5 year olds - One staff member to 15 children
School age - One staff member to 18 children
