    Ms. Anu, Owner

    Anu has been in education her whole life. She has her BA of Elementary Education from Northeastern University and after spending many years teaching Kindergarten, Anu wanted to open up a daycare in her home. Not long after that, her journey to open Kiddie Academy began! Anu is a passionate educator who loves children and she is thrilled to finally be serving children and families through Kiddie Academy of Gurnee. In her “free time”, Anu is mommy to 2 boys of her own, Ansh (10) and Karam (6) and is married to her husband and co-owner, Kamal.

    Ms. Christine, Director of Education

    Ms. Christine has had the privilege of sharing her passion for teaching for the past 22 years in various capacities. From assistant teacher to lead teacher to assistant director to director, she has continued to bring her enthusiasm for learning to every aspect of child care. She believes that children learn best through playful and purposeful experiences where they can explore and discover on their own in a safe, nurturing environment. Each child is unique, and we have the responsibility to reach each child where they are at while challenging their curiosity and imagination. In her spare time, she runs her own business as an Early Childhood Educational Consultant, training educators and parents on developmentally appropriate practices and strategies. In addition to all of the above, Christine loves to watch her amazing 12 year old son play basketball and spend time with her husband while watching Netflix!
