Good Afternoon, Now that our Academy just opened in May 2022, we wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves. My name is Ileana, and I am one of Kiddie Academy of Far North Dallas's owners. My husband and our three kids moved to Texas in August 2019. Being a parent myself, I understand the challenges when searching for the right child care option. While looking for care, I wanted to find a place where it felt like a second home to my kids. That’s why we decided to embark on the journey of opening Kiddie Academy. I want everyone who walks through our doors to feel like they are walking into a second home. I can’t wait to meet your family and learn more about your educational child care needs. Thank you, Ileana Diaz
