    Anu Saini, Academy Owner

    I strongly believe that it is important for young children to receive early education that can focus on all areas of their developmental growth. During our search for business, we decided to go with Kiddie Academy because it possesses all the qualities that we were looking for with caring teachers, a fun atmosphere and strong curriculum. I want it to continue my passion for young learners. We decided to open our second location in Grayslake to the community, as we continue to inspire young minds. My husband and I have two wonderful boys, and we love to meet new people. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching web series/ movies in my free time.

    Danielle Bentivegna, Academy Director

    Danielle has been in childcare for the past 18 years and has served as a Teacher, Program Specialist, Assistant Director and Director. Danielle has her B.A. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Science from Southern Illinois University and spent time teaching in the public school system for a few years before coming back to Early Childhood Education full time. Beginning at a young age, she always knew she wanted to be an educator and work with children. She volunteered during her recess time in the primary classrooms when she was in elementary school and began babysitting at the age of 14. That love of helping to nurture children is what brought her to Kiddie Academy. Danielle lives in Lindenhurst, Illinois with her husband of 14 years and 2 children: Isabella (12) and Jackson (2). When she is not at the academy, she loves spending time with her family and crafting. “I am excited to have the opportunity to share my passion and enthusiasm of learning. I love watching the children develop new skills each day. I am here to help support your children and love them as my own. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Thank you for entrusting Kiddie Academy of Grayslake to be a part of your family!”

Everyone has been very nice and clearly have our kids best interest at heart. Ms Aliyah treats kids as their own and formed a special bond with Grace. She really helped Grace develop so much and Grace was always excited to come to school. We will really miss everyone!
