June 21, 2016

Educational child care provider Kiddie Academy recently recognized “the best of the best” in their franchise system at an award ceremony held during their annual Conference. The three-day Conference event took place last week at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale, Ariz.


Among the Annual Recognition Award winners was Kiddie Academy of Bothell, located at 22703 Bothell Everett Highway in Bothell , which received Best Practices in Character Education, Best Practices in Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum, Best Practices in Health & Fitness, Best Practices in Technology Education, Mature Academy Utilization, Academy Achievement, and Director of the Year Aleksa Overby.


“It’s an honor to recognize Kiddie Academy of Bothell among this year’s award winners” said Richard Peterson, vice president of education for Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care. “Kiddie Academy is designed to provide top-notch early child care in an environment that fosters learning and development as well as the highest safety standards.”


More than 155 Kiddie Academy locations in 24 states serve over 19,000 children and their families nationwide. According to Peterson, obtaining quality, education-based child care, especially for children under age 5, is a major priority for parents, particularly with the rise in families with two working parents. At the conference, Kiddie Academy hosted round table discussions to give attendees a better understanding of the size, scope and demand within the $53 billion child care industry, as well as the impact Kiddie Academy owners have on local communities in helping young children grow, learn and prepare for school and for life.


Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with an idea to combine learning with child care and a commitment to be a leader in the industry. Kiddie Academy has developed a comprehensive education-based child care program for its academies. Each location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum, which promotes each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth.
