    Keyoor Bhatt, Owner

    Kay, as we know him, found a passion to offer child care to families in the Powell, Worthington and Dublin areas.  As a father of three, he knew there was a community atmosphere with loving and caring teachers that he wanted for his children and the other families in his community.  In May 2015, Kiddie Academy opened and his dream is being realized.

    Sarah McNeill, Academy Director

    It is with great pleasure and excitement that I join the Kiddie Academy team. I have over 10 years of higher education and early childhood administrative experience, as well as a Bachelors Degree specializing in early childhood development from The Ohio State University. My passion is being a consistent and positive resource for families. Having the knowledge of what a quality education can do for young children is what excites me about this position.  My door is always open, so please feel free to stop in even if it's just to say hello.  I am so excited to be working with you, the staff and the administration at Kiddie Academy.

    Lauren Holloway, Assistant Director

    I began teaching in 2005, and graduated in 2016 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education Administration. I have worked with all age groups, but found my home in the Infant/Waddler room before choosing to take the path toward administration. I have worked at Kiddie Academy since our opening, and my favorite thing has been watching the center grow and flourish. Outside of school, I am the color guard director at London High School and love to spend time with family and friends.

    Brittany Simms, Assistant Administrator

    I began teaching in 2012 and graduated from Grandview Heights High School. I started at Kiddie Academy as a teacher, then became a mentor teacher, and was promoted to Assistant Administrator in 2020. The best thing about teaching is getting to watching children thrive. If I wasn’t in education I think I would be a youth counselor.. Outside of school I love to do arts and crafts, spend time with my children, and watch movies.

We couldn’t have picked a better child care center! Our daughter loves it there and learns so much! It is easy to see the teachers really care about the kids!

Allison W., Powell

I like the friendly staff.
Laura W., Powell

I trust the staff with my children-most importantly. Also, my kids actually enjoy going to 'school' daily which is going to help tremendously when they start public school. The classrooms are very engaging and the amount my kids learn daily is extremely impressive.
Kerry E., Powell

All of the teachers and support staff are amazing. My son loves it there.
Rachel S., Powell

That my child is loved and respected.
Mary Hope T., Powell

I really enjoy that in the classrooms they do different themes either for a week at a time or a month at a time. I love how each teacher cares for your child as if it was their own. They get to enjoy outside time as well which I think is very helpful to a…
Kelly M., Powell

Low turnover ratios amongst staff, teachers care about the children, and the administrative staff are very understanding and work with parents. I love Kiddie Academy, and I'm glad Kingston loves it too!

Flexible and friendly staff

A warm, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. My kids have gone right through from babyhood to K here and they have grown up alongside friends and people who care about them deeply.
