    Kelly Harper and Chris Grahn, Owners

    We have four children of our own and have had challenges in finding high quality, educational childcare options for our children. We discovered Kiddie Academy after talking with another parent and we were so impressed with the nationally accredited Life Essentials curriculum that we decided to pursue our dream of starting a business. Kiddie Academy combines our love for children with our desire to help shape good citizens for the future.
