Kiddie Academy of Des Peres Brings Home Teacher of The Year Award

November 11, 2020

Local teacher, Robyn Hicks, of Kiddie Academy of Des Peres recently received the Teacher of the Year award at Kiddie Academy’s Annual Conference, held virtually last month, where hundreds of franchisees from over 250+ Academies nationwide were considered for the award, which reflect efforts and contributions made in 2019.

The Teacher of the Year award is given to an exemplary teacher. Winners are honored for their dedication to helping children succeed in their next chapter of life and for helping Kiddie Academy families recognize the value of the community. They are committed to Kiddie Academy, as well as helping fulfill the brand’s mission of preparing children for the future.

According to the CEO of Kiddie Academy, Greg Helwig, Robyn Hicks is the core of the brand’s business and essence. As the kind of teacher who leaves a lasting impression that exists well into adulthood, Robyn is the reason families choose to bring their children to Kiddie Academy.

“All Kiddie Academy franchisees share a passion for our industry, our brand, and the people who drive the company’s success every day. With so many dedicated professionals working to provide best-in-class early educational child care in an environment that fosters learning and development, as well as the highest safety standards, the ‘best of the best’ are truly doing an exceptional job,” states Helwig. “Robyn Hicks embody the highest standards of professionalism and caring, and we are proud to recognize their contributions not only to Kiddie Academy, but also to so many Des Peres families.”
