SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The ribbon cutting was held Thursday at the brand new franchise daycare center Kiddie Academy. The grand opening party was held Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The atmosphere was festive as Aanal Parikh joined other investors, family members and celebrants of all ages for a dance party . The celebration included spin art, a balloon artist, refreshments and lots of outdoor play in the unseasonably warm and sunny winter day.

Opening this franchise has been the dream of Aanal and her husband. The dream of opening a franchise began when they were searching for a daycare center for their young daughter.  They were impressed with the curriculum at Kiddie Academy, which emphasizes “Life Essentials” including developmentally appropriate curriculum, character education, health and fitness, and technology education.

As she greeted her many guests Aanal said,  “We are extremely well located and take children from infants to kindergarten, We are enrolling now and have openings."
