    Dr. Zubair & Hajira Khan, Academy Owners

    We are originally from Chicago, IL. We moved to Fort Wayne in 2004. Zubair is an Optometrist and Hajira has a background in Education. Hajirahas worked in Early Childhood and as a Kindergarten Teacher in Illinois. We saw the need for better early childhood education facilities when we were looking for our own son. We heard the same feedback from several families that Fort Wayne was lacking state of the art facilities like the big cities. We decided to open Kiddie Academy because it met everything we wanted for our son and for Fort Wayne. Kiddie Academy has the best, most advanced and updated curriculum: Life Essentials! We have secure webcam access for parents, Academy Link paperless reporting system, nurtritious meals, and excellent loving staff!

Hear from our parents

We had to make the decision to find new childcare during the pandemic and we are so happy we found Kiddie Academy! My children are still able to learn in an educational setting despite schools being closed and my husband and I have also noticed an improvement in our daughters speech delay since starting at…
