    Gloria Montemayor, Franchisee & Director

    Gloria Montemayor is the matriarch of a family of five that include her husband Jesus and three daughters, Krystal, Alexis, and Emily. Working in early childhood education has been a goal for Gloria since becoming a mother. She was inspired by her own close family and the importance of having an adult that not only serves as a care giver but as a teacher as well. Gloria and her husband, decided that they wanted to bring her ideas to life through the Kiddie Academy. Highlighting her passion and a familial touch, Gloria hopes to let all parents concerns lay at rest knowing that their child's needs are being met by the most professional and dedicated individuals.  She is 100% dedicated to the business and to the children that attend her center. She works full time and is readily available to speak with families whenever there is any comments or concerns. She hopes that everyone who walks through the doors sees the passion that she has for Early Childcare Education!
