    Nirali Patel, Center Owner

    I am proud to be the owner of this academy.  I live in Howard County and are grateful for the opportunity to run my own Child Care Learning Center, Kiddie Academy of Arnold. I am so excited to be a part of a small community at our center. Our children are a part of our everyday lives and we make every effort to make them feel comfortable at Kiddie Academy of Arnold. Our goal is to make Kiddie Academy of Arnold a second home for our children, our parents, and our staff. I am the Managing Member of Kiddie Academy of Arnold, which means I am responsible for the day to day activities of our center. I have a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Bio-Chemistry from USP, and Philadelphia based university, and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from University of Baltimore, MD. As the Managing Member, I collaborate with Kiddie Academy corporate and local agencies to identify and meet the childcare needs of families in our community. My daily activities range from, but not limited to, being a teacher, nurse, friend, psychologist, advisor, trainer, business owner, filing specialist, cook, and interpreter at the center. I am a very goal oriented and set very high expectations for myself, my children, and my staff. I enjoy what I do because I know that the trust given to me is not given lightly. Whatever roles I am asked to balance in a particular day are roles that I cherish. Many times the job is not simple and requires long hours, hard work, patience, and the ability to look at a floor requiring mopping and a classroom put out of order with tremendous amount of cleaning up to do and just laugh and get it done. My husband and I trust our children, Ryan & Sanya, with the same staff members that we ask you to and are appreciative of the opportunity.
