In an interview with Aanal Parikh, she explained that when her daughter was an infant they looked at many places for daycare.  In Kiddie Academy, they found a program that “…covers life’s essentials”.  There is a music program, health and fitness, and the children go outside twice a day.  Huge windows let in sunshine.  Meals are family style at a round table with children and staff serving themselves.  Aanal stated “This is a very well rounded program educating children for life.  That is what I like most about it.”

Kiddie Academy’s Springfield location will apply a curriculum, which was created to help mold and support each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. The program also emphasizes continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development, which will help enable them to learn and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually.

Based in Maryland, Kiddie Academy is the leading provider of comprehensive childcare programs across the United States and the District of Columbia with over 170 academies. Approximately 30 new locations opened in 2016 and they are expecting 35 more in 2017.  This will bring their network to over 200 open and operating locations by the end of this year.

Founded in 1981, Kiddie Academy started with an idea to combine learning with childcare, and made it their goal to become a leader in this industry. It has developed into a comprehensive educational childcare program for each of its institutions, which are built to respond to the increasing demand for childcare.
