Annual Kiddie Academy Conference Informs and Entertains Franchisees
Each year, Kiddie Academy hosts an educational conference for all its franchisees, providing a unique opportunity to share best practices, learn about new programs and hear from industry leaders. Relaxing and having fun is also on the agenda, with receptions, family-friendly activities and a gala awards dinner.
This year’s annual conference was held at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the spirit of the setting, Chris Blackmore, a motivational keynote speaker, comedian, and magician kicked off the conference with a fun, motivational speech. Childhood education expert Gigi Schweikert also led a workshop on building enrollment and keeping customers enrolled and satisfied.
Breakout sessions covered a wide range of topics, including online assessment and parent reporting tools, accreditations and Kiddie Academy’s new early literacy and numeracy essentials manual.
A full vendor expo held on-site during the conference provides franchisees with the opportunity to meet with Kiddie Academy suppliers who can provide everything from playground and technology equipment to banking, buses and insurance.
A celebratory dinner is held on the final night of the conference. Outstanding Kiddie Academy franchisees are honored for their hard work throughout the year with a number of awards, including Life Essentials awards, Best Practices recognition, Brand Champion, and the coveted Franchisee of the Year award.
