    Janel Work, Franchise Owner

    Janel A. Work is first and foremost a mother. Janel's oldest son, Maxwell, was then born shortly after and he has enriched her life and keeps her smiling each day. It was due to his birth that Janel decided to take a hiatus from public education and pursue Early Childhood Education. Then in January of 2011, the family was also blessed with their new arrival of Nathaniel (Nate). Then they were blessed with their final addition of Arianna. The family lives in Kimberton with their two dogs Momo and Lucy. Janel graduated from Susquehanna University in 2002 with a B.A. in Communications, Theater Arts and Education. While working in the public school system, she continued her education to complete her M.A. at Villanova in Education.  She also has pursued additional graduate education in ECE from Shippensburg University. After achieving her degree, Janel has worked as a daycare director and public school educator. She has taught at Owen J.Roberts School District, Reading Area School District, and in Montgomery County School System in Maryland. She was also an adjunct professor at Montgomery College. Not only did she teach, but she helped write standards-based curriculum for the school districts and several virtual charter schools. As an educator, Janel believes in enriching each child’s life and meeting their individual needs to help them flourish. Janel A. Work loves Kiddie Academy in Phoenixville and does not consider it a job but a wonderful lifestyle. She believes the center continues to redefine the standards for childcare in the area. Plus, it is a wonderful resource center to her beloved town. Janel is proud of the accomplishments at the ever growing and changing center.

    Ashley Logue, Director

    Working with children is my passion. Every day is a new experience, not only for the children but for me as well. Being able to provide them with the experiences to learn and grow is rewarding. I started at Kiddie Academy as an Intern in 2009 and worked in several different classrooms before becoming our Assistant Director. In January 2015 I joined our administration team as Assistant Director. This position has been the most fulfilling to me as I am able to provide support to all of our children, families, and staff. Growing with Kiddie Academy in my career has given me pride in knowing I have helped in forming a community and achieving the highest standards. I only continue to look forward to this for years to come! While working at Kiddie Academy I continued my education. In 2012 I received my Associate's Degree in Elementary Education and in January 2015 I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Wilmington University. I changed my degree pathway thinking I wanted to be in the “business world” and shortly after realized I love my job, but more importantly I love working with children! This is why I love my position as Director, it allows me to be both in and out of the classrooms. My degrees and experience have given me the advantage to have an understanding of being in the classroom as a teacher and out of the classroom as an administrator. I hope to apply all of the knowledge I have gained every day in working with our children, staff, and parents here at Kiddie Academy!
