Infants have individual personalities. We help bring them to light.
Toddlers are extremely active. We keep them actively learning.
At two years old, children need to explore. We give them every opportunity.
At three years old, children discover and create. We encourage them to do it all.
At four years old, children are preparing for school. We get them ready to go.
School-age children are curious about the world. We help them decipher it.
Each Academy is a little different. Here's what makes us unique:

Our names are Tori Haddock (left), Tammi Needham (center) and Dani Finley (right) and we are the ownership team for Kiddie Academy of Alliance. We are a mother-daughter team fulfilling a dream we have had for years of working together! This dream began as a desire for us all to work together and to use our years of experience in early childhood education and building positive, productive cultures to nurture and care for what we consider the most important thing, children! When we discovered Kiddie Academy, their amazing curriculum that begins with infants and their educational philosophy that is customized to each individual child, we knew we had found our home. This dream became a reality when we acquired Kiddie Academy of Alliance in October of 2020 to continue to build on the great work by the entire team here to create a safe and nurturing environment for children. We are so excited to be a part of the amazing work at Kiddie Academy of Alliance and so thankful to be able to help care for and shape your children’s lives!

My name is Kandy Rose and I am the Director here at Kiddie Academy of Alliance. Overall, I have 16+ years of experience working in child care. I started with Kiddie Academy right when the building was put up in September 2017 as the Lead Teacher in the 3-year-old class and then moved up as the Curriculum Director in January 2018 and the Center Director in August 2019. I grew up in Comanche and moved to Stephenville after I graduated in 1990. Since then I have moved to DFW. I have been married for 24 years and still going strong! I have a daughter who just recently graduated from Grad School at Tarleton State and a son who is attending TCC. I am an outdoors person and I enjoy working out yearly with Camp Gladiator. In my spare time during Spring and Summer, I go to the lake with my family. When the cooler weather hits, we all love to camp at the deer lease. Working with children has always been a part of my life and is what continues to drive my passion for our little future generations at hand.

Hello, my name is Jessica Murillo and I am one of the Assistant Directors here at Kiddie Academy of Alliance. I started with Kiddie Academy in the Fall of 2019 as the Infant Lead Teacher and then moved into the Assistant Director position in December 2021 and I love it! I have a total of 8 years childcare experience, 5 of which are here in the USA and 3 years in Europe. I was born and raised in Malta, a very small island in the Mediterranean Sea which is where I met my husband Erick who was stationed there with the US Marine Corps. I moved to the US in 2014 and we have been married since. We have 2 children together, our son is 5 years old and our daughter is 2 years old. We love traveling with our kids, teaching them about family traditions and having them experience and learn about the different cultures in the world. Growing up I did a lot of babysitting and teaching has become such an important part of my life!

I also spent time as a Floater and the Assistant Teacher for School Age and the 18-23 month Toddler Room. I joined Management August of 2019.

In my spare time, I do various activities with my husband such as dinner, movies, bowling, playing pool, etc. My hobbies include drawing, dancing, working out, and watching WAY too much Netflix. Children have always been a huge part of my life. I spent my entire childhood babysitting my younger sisters and cousins. I also spent 3 years tutoring students from grades 5-12 and loved every second of it! Every child at the daycare I look at as my own! I will continue to do everything in my power to make sure our kiddos are happy, comfortable, and feel loved!
