Each member of our team nurtures each child in their care in a safe, supportive learning environment. Team members receive ongoing training to continue their education and are evaluated throughout the year. Our team excels at stimulating children to learn and preparing them for future education. Our team is devoted to making each day fun and educational. Their dedication makes all the difference for your children.

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!
