    Allison McClaugherty, Owner

    Allison's passion for early childhood education began when she started working as a nanny in college. During that time, she met her husband and they had our three wonderful children; Kari (age 6), Ellie (age 4), and Kassidy (age 2). She switched gears in college and got her Bachelor of Science in Education from NC State. She is currently pursuing a Master of Education in Early Childhood Education with an estimated completion of Fall 2024. Allison's children were a driving force in her decision to franchise with Kiddie Academy. She discovered Kiddie Academy while researching countless options for her little ones and fell in love with Kiddie Academy's well-rounded approach to early childhood education. As a mom, she values play-based learning and character education for her children because she knows emotional success correlates not only with academic success, but success in future endeavors as well. Her goal is to be able to provide that strong foundation for the children in our community. In her free time, Allison enjoys playing cello, hiking with her family, snowboarding, and reading fantasy novels.

Everyday my kids are learning something new. It is evident to see in the way they behave and interact when they come home.
Pauline H., Virginia Beach

We love the teachers and the learning plans! And all the art and activities!
Chantal E., Bellevue

Everything, but especially the teachers! They were so sweet but also firm when necessary. They really taught our child both knowledge and good behavior, but in a way that made our son love going to school!
Peter S., Seattle at Queen Anne
