Kiddie Academy® of Gaithersburg, Urbana owner named brand champion.

Namita Shah recognized for outstanding business performance in 2021.

Kiddie Academy Educational Child Care® has recognized Namita Shah as Brand Champion, an annual award given at the company’s 2022 Annual Conference to franchisees who have excelled in helping to build the Kiddie Academy brand.

Shah was chosen as a Brand Champion for embodying the Kiddie Academy vision and mission within her two Academies, within her local community and within the Kiddie Academy franchise community. Over the past seven years, Shah has opened two Kiddie Academy franchise locations in Maryland. She is also one of the newest members of the brand’s Franchise Advisory Council. 

“Each year Namita hosts an annual children’s art show and charity auction where the unique artwork of students is used to raise money to benefit a charity. This year’s event supported the Big Tree Memorial Fund to help families impacted by cancer,” said Broc Silberzahn, vice president of franchise development. “She frequently speaks to franchise candidates regarding her experiences operating Academies in the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast regions.” 

Kiddie Academy Brand Champions invest time talking with prospective franchisees, mentor new franchisees and participate in leadership roles on the franchise advisory council, brand building committee and in many program pilots. 

Each year, Kiddie Academy Domestic Franchising hosts a conference where awards are presented to its top performing Academies, franchisees and staff members. This year, the event was held in Austin, Texas, June 2-4.
