Kiddie Academy was founded in 1981, yet continues to thrive on the innovative spirit of our roots. You’ll be part of the sustained, strategic growth that earned us national and local rankings in 2018 from Entrepreneur, Franchise Times and the Baltimore Business Journal.
Over our four decades of private ownership, Kiddie Academy’s expansion has been fueled by a focus on the needs of our families and franchisees. This is personified through our close-knit culture that is simultaneously caring, challenging and energized by an ambition to revolutionize educational childcare.
To be competitive, you have to be collaborative. We value diverse thinking and encourage you to be part of the conversation, whether you’ve been here for a few weeks or 30 years.
We’re in the caring business and take care of the whole person by going beyond competitive benefits, insurance plans, 401K, vacation time to recharge, and professional development opportunities. We celebrate our successes, large and small, with everything from crab feasts to baseball game outings.
“ In my role supporting our academies’ technology needs, I see how vital our company’s operations are as we expand. Plus as a parent with children at Kiddie Academy, I see the impact of their exemplary curriculum and staff firsthand. ”

“ It’s gratifying to see Kiddie Academy teachers and directors so passionate about early childhood education. In my role, I set the framework that creates the educational foundation for more than 27,000 children annually.
