    Alyssa Garth MSN RN, Owner

    Alyssa grew up in Omaha and now lives in Elkhorn with her family. Although she started as a pediatric nurse over 15 years ago, Alyssa spent the past 10 years in Nursing Administration and Leadership before opening Kiddie Academy of Elkhorn in 2020. Alyssa holds bachelor’s degrees in International Studies and Nursing, and a master’s degree in Nursing Healthcare Administration. After experiencing the importance of early childhood education with her own young children, Alyssa decided to embark on her endeavor with Kiddie Academy. Alyssa has a passion for education and feels strongly about bringing not only quality curriculum, but a tremendous amount of caring and fun to a child’s daily experiences! She appreciates how hard the decision can be on selecting the right childcare center and is confident Kiddie Academy of Elkhorn will exceed every parent’s expectation.

Hear from our parents

The facility is child centered, very well organized, clean and a friendly place. My grandson comes home happy everyday and talks about school all the time.
Ann G., Gurnee

Pleasing your customers and their children is very important to you. It is very noticeable!
Thomas B., Hawthorn Woods

The teachers are kind and helpful. The children get to learn and play at the same time. The atmosphere is inviting and children are always laughing.
Heather K., Mill Creek

I love how attentive the teachers are. They see opportunities with each student and work with the parents to share activities being done at school and provide recommendations on things to do at home.
Stacey H., White Plains
