    Randi Schmitz, Owner

    Randi lives in Grimes with her husband Grant and their children Ellie, 4 and Lincoln, 2. They are originally from a small town in Iowa but spent some time living in Omaha after college. In 2018 they made the move back to Iowa. Randi has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Western Governors University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from Iowa State University. Randi has always enjoyed working with children. While living in Omaha Randi worked as an assistant teacher, teacher, and director in child care. Her passion for great childcare and education is what started the journey with Kiddie Academy. Having two young children of her own, she understands how difficult the decision can be to select the right child care and hopes that she can help parents feel more at ease when they choose Kiddie Academy of Urbandale.
