    Rafael and Shannon Nazario, Owners

    Welcome to the Kiddie Academy® family in the West Chester community! We are Rafael and Shannon Nazario and we are the owners of the Kiddie Academy of Mason and of West Chester. Kiddie Academy has been a leading provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs since 1981. Our innovative curriculum encompasses all facets of learning in a safe and secure environment while inspiring and encouraging children to explore, interact and create. Our business philosophy is “Community Begins Here” and we are excited to bring this culture to the West Chester community. We are passionate about our business which will prepare our children to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We will assist children in developing the confidence and self-esteem necessary to meet the challenges they will face throughout life. Our children will learn and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually through the Kiddie Academy experience. One of Kiddie Academy's unique offerings is the family culture environment. For example, our children engage in family-style dining that encourages conversation and learning during mealtime, while enhancing the social and developmental skills necessary for each child. We provide a high touch culture focusing on developing positive relationships with every interaction along with involvement within the community. We will maintain commitment, dedication and credibility to each child and family member at every interaction. We understand the importance of these attributes as we are the proud parents of three children. We enjoy traveling and vacationing on Lake Erie. We also love to spend time at amusement parks with our children. It is amazing to watch the anticipation and excitement on their faces as they go up and down a rollercoaster. We are excited to welcome you to the Kiddie Academy family!

I think the educational aspect could be a little more structured, but what I enjoy most is that I trust dropping my children off in your care.

The teachers love the children and treat them like their own!
Melissa C., West Chester

My husband and I love all the teachers and staff that we have been involved with! You can tell they truly care about the kiddos, and (especially as a new mommy) it's comforting to know that my child will be well taken care of while I'm at work everyday. I even get photo and video…
