    Charissa Wyatt, Curriculum Director

    Hello! My name as Charissa Wyatt and I am the Curriculum Director at Kiddie Academy of Mason and West Chester. I have been in the Early Childhood Education Field for over 12 years. I started in this field by volunteering at my son's school for a gifted program for 3rd through 5th grade. I love teaching and decided to start my career in Early Childhood Education, along with getting a Business Degree. I have two wonderful boys. My youngest is a Junior in High School and my oldest is in his second year of college, in the Nursing Program. I'm so excited to share my education and experience with you and your child/ren. In my experience, watching children progress developmentally through teaching and individualized planning that Kiddie Academy offers, is so rewarding in so many ways. I'm so excited to be a part of Kiddie Academy of Mason.

    Rafael and Shannon Nazario, Owners

    Welcome to the Kiddie Academy® family in the Mason community! We are Rafael and Shannon Nazario and we are the owners of the first Kiddie Academy in the Cincinnati area. Kiddie Academy has been a leading provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs since 1981. Our innovative curriculum encompasses all facets of learning in a safe and secure environment while inspiring and encouraging children to explore, interact and create. Our business philosophy is “Community Begins Here” and we are excited to bring this culture to the Mason community. We are passionate about our new business which will prepare our children to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We will assist children in developing the confidence and self-esteem necessary to meet the challenges they will face throughout life. Our children will learn and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually through the Kiddie Academy experience. One of Kiddie Academy's unique offerings is the family culture environment. For example, our children engage in family-style dining that encourages conversation and learning during mealtime, while enhancing the social and developmental skills necessary for each child. We provide a high touch culture focusing on developing positive relationships with every interaction along with involvement within the community. We will maintain commitment, dedication and credibility to each child and family member at every interaction. We understand the importance of these attributes as we are the proud parents of three young children. We enjoy traveling and vacationing on Lake Erie. We also love to spend time at amusement parks with our children. It is amazing to watch the anticipation and excitement on their faces as they go up and down a rollercoaster. We are excited to welcome you to the Kiddie Academy family!
