    Melodie and Sanddy Marchena, Franchise Owners

    We are a local family in the Lakewood Ranch area focused on being a true community partner within our neighborhood. We spent twenty years working in senior Management, Sales & Service, Operations and Project Management roles for Fortune 100 companies. While that may not seem as a ‘natural’ path to early childhood education, we have gained valuable experience in compliance, well-managed processes and design, customer service, problem solving and most of all leading with passion. We are most passionate about our children and family. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early learning and childcare experience which promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development in a warm, loving, and safe environment.

Kiddie academy offers new topics for children to learn each week, I love that they share so much knowledge on so many different topics with my son who is absorbing so much at this age.

The curriculum used is beneficial for the VPK students to be prepared for kindergarten. I also enjoy the daily updates of what has taken place.

The staff and teachers are very friendly, and it seems like everyone knows my son’s name. We feel like he’s learning a lot and we can definitely tell he enjoy the social interaction with his classmates and teachers.

Kristal R., Lakewood Ranch

I like the communication, educational plan provided and the place is always up to date!
Christian B., Lakewood Ranch

I’ve really enjoyed the attention to detail and attention to each children. The school does a good job at making sure the children to teacher ratio is low to ensure each child gets the attention needed.
Rachel N., Lakewood Ranch

Very caring school. The staff is great and my son loves going to school. They inform us on everything going on. We love the camera in the classroom and the pictures that get sent to us from the teacher. We also think the director is amazing and she is the reason we made the decision…
