    Jillian & Eion Snell, Owners/Operators

    Welcome to Kiddie Academy of Aurora- a place we want you to feel happy and safe, and where kids can be kids! Jillian has always had a passion for working with kids starting in her teen years as a leader in her community youth organizations to her advocacy for juveniles in the court system as a Guardian ad Litem. Eion is a native of South Africa and is a dedicated small business owner. When it came time to put our son, Knox, in Preschool we discovered there were so few in our neighborhood that made us feel like he would truly grow socially and emotionally. That’s where our journey began… We are excited to build long-lasting relationships in the community with our families at Kiddie Academy of Aurora and focus on genuine care for your children because this truly is our everyday life as parents!

    Jillian Kelley, Director

    Hello everyone! My name is Jillian Kelley and I am the Director of the new Kiddie Academy of Aurora. I grew up in Toledo, OH and graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education in 2014. I have lived in Denver for 6 years now working as both an Early Childhood Educator and Director, and I still love seeing the mountains every day! On the weekends you can find me hiking, traveling, cooking, checking out new restaurants, and exploring all this beautiful state has to offer. I look forward to this new adventure of opening this amazing new center and being a part of the Kiddie Academy team!

    Susan Hmami, Assistant Director

    Hello! My name is Susan Hmami and I am the new assistant director of Kiddie Academy of Aurora. I have been in childcare and teaching preschool for the last 20 years. For the past 7 years, I have taught inclusion (bringing children with special needs into a general education classroom) I love bringing all of the children together and watching the compassion and friendships grow. I have 6 children of my own, 4 grandchildren, and another granddaughter on the way! I love simply spending time with my family. I am really looking forward to my new role at Kiddie Academy and working with all of the teachers and families!

Hear from our parents

It’s a very community based environment! The owners, the director, and teachers treat our kiddo and us as if they’ve known us forever. It really feels like we are leaving her with people who truly are invested in her.
Kelsey T., Aurora

Teachers (infant room) are great. They do a great job of taking care of the kids. The hours are also very convenient for two working parents.
Mark G., Aurora

Kiddie Academy has been such a great experience for the whole family! The teachers truly care and are kind and loving to the kiddos. Our little one has a lot of fun playing with friends and learning. I love how much creative art they do each week and how much sign language our little one…
Jillian B., Aurora

Communication is great. Everyone is very friendly. My daughter loves it and we know she is having an all-around great experience.
Bradley T., Aurora
