Kiddie Academy Child Care Learning Centers Franchise
Kiddie Academy Child Care Learning Center is a franchise for a child care learning center.
It was founded in 1979 by George and Pauline Miller. They wanted to provide a child care center that is also education based. They opened their first location in Baltimore County, Maryland. The first location had a capacity of 86 kids. They opened the second location in Baltimore County, Maryland as well and it had a capacity of 64 kids. It was in this same year that they moved to their first corporate office. In 1984, they opened their third location in the same area and it had a capacity of 100 kids. This year, their son, Michael Miller, joined the company. They separate themselves from other nursery schools because they do not consider themselves as a nursery school.
They provide their kids with “Life Essentials” which is not provided in other traditional nursery schools. They recognize each child’s changing needs. They teach them at their own pace and not as an average for a child their age. This helps them reach their potentials instead of holding them back.
