    Ashley Zimmerman, Academy Director

    I found my love for children when I began teaching preschool in 2017. From there, I knew I wanted to be a bigger part of the picture, and that is when I took a leap at another school for a chance to become an Asst. Director. I then worked my way to a Director position and loved every bit of it. Being able to continue to be hands on in the classroom, but also make an impact on a larger scale gave me a sense of purpose that I didn't realize I was missing. I came to Kiddie Academy in January of 2022 and plan on making this my home. Watching the growth and development of both the teachers and children is a very rewarding thing.

    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.

    Brittany Simms, Assistant Director

    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.

Hear from our parents

I think it’s done a great job preparing our son for kindergarten. Not just content, but the framework to learn and be a student.

Hosay H., Powell

They are loving to my little boy. They have good programming, keep a regular schedule, and promptly communicate.
Erin H., Powell

It feels great seeing how much the teachers love on our girl! We also like how much she is learning and the different activities she is involved with - painting / coloring / exposed to different textures, etc. Thank you for taking such good care of our baby :)
Angela G., Powell

I feel like they treat our children like one of their own. They do a great job taking care of our kids.
Ben A., Powell

Provide the right education to a specific age. Every child does get that special one on one time to really grow.
Ashley R., Powell

It seems like over the last several months, communication has been proactive and enhanced. I feel more informed as a parent both with the center as a whole and related to the classroom. I really appreciate the attention to detail around feedback and updates. It's a small thing, but I loved the texts for spirit…
Ciana K., Powell

My son enjoys being there.
