Hello, I am Rick Burghli and I am the proud owner of Kiddie Academy of East Brunswick. My family and I have lived in East Brunswick for 17 years. I began my career teaching at a university for 10 years before moving on to the corporate world. My loving wife and 3 wonderful children (6, 10, and 14 years old) are the most important people in my life, every day we spend together is a new adventure. We set out to build the best educational daycare for our children and the community. The process took over 2 years and the end result is definitely worth it. Kiddie Academy of East Brunswick is truly an exceptional daycare. Our philosophy is to strive for perfection in everything we do...from the management, to the teachers, to the food service manager. If you want the best for your children, please come and visit us and I would love to show you around our wonderful academy.

Please feel free to drop by anytime to see our wonderful facilities and meet our great teachers!
