Ayesha Ali is the owner of the Kiddie Academy of Reston. She is a graduate of George Mason University and switched over 5 years ago from a successful career in technology to pursue her true passion in early childhood development. Her struggle to find quality child care with a strong focus on academics for her own 2 children led her to establishing a child care from her basement. She successfully ran her home child care with a waiting list for 3 years before partnering with Kiddie Academy to expand into a state-of-the-art facility with all the best practices, amenities and services parents were requesting frequently. In addition to ensuring an environment that is safe and conducive to learning she continues to be on the lookout for the next SMART Board, tablet, or iPhone app that can be leveraged by parents to enhance the learning experience for their young children.
