    Sruthy and Ashley Kuruvilla, Owners

    We are Sruthy and Ashley Kuruvilla, the proud owners of Kiddie Academy of Suwanee! Our inspiration for starting our journey with Kiddie Academy comes from our love of children, our passion for helping others, and our desire to provide quality educational options for parents and families. Sruthy has a Master’s in Criminology and has over 14 years of experience in Law Enforcement and Corporate Security. Ashley has a Master’s in Nursing and has over 16 years of experience as a Registered Nurse and a Family Nurse Practitioner. As parents of two young children ourselves, daughter Jizelle (age 10) and son Jace (age 8), we know the challenges parents face when deciding on the right child care options for their little ones and understand the importance of finding a safe, caring, and family-oriented center. It is because of these shared values that we are dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that promotes learning and enriches each and every child at our school. We are so very excited to share what our Kiddie Academy has to offer to the Suwanee community and can’t wait to love your child like our own!

The staff and Teachers are great! Modern and very clean facility!

The staff is genuinely interested in getting to know my child. They care about her, and make sure she always has a good day.

The staff has been phenomenal in giving my kids a fun, safe and loving learning environment; the facilities are clean and comfortable, and the curriculum more than prepared our older son for the academics of kindergarten.

I love the interactive activities for infants, especially the ones which are sensory-focused. I also love the mobile app (Tadpoles) and video camera (Watch Me Grow) because they give so much peace of mind and reassurance to parents.
