Kiddie Academy Announces 1st Manhattan Location


Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized franchisor of comprehensive educational child care programs, will soon offer Manhattan residents the opportunity to enroll their children in a new Academy located in Tribeca. The franchisee of Kiddie Academy of Tribeca recently leased approximately 13,500 square feet of space, and plans to open the academy later in 2018.

The franchisee chose Tribeca for its family-oriented environment, and this particular location for its ability to accommodate classrooms, play and dining areas, and other child care uses in a cohesive unit. It is also just three blocks from the Washington Market Park, a child-friendly park with an abundance of jungle-gym equipment already in place. The space formerly housed the famous MacKenzie Door Company, an institution that owned the space for more than 70 years until it sold the site to real estate developer ML7 in 2015. ML7 is renovating nearly 32,000 square feet at the property into new commercial spaces, storefronts and luxury residential condominiums.

Kiddie Academy of Tribeca will serve today’s families that are increasingly choosing to remain in Manhattan in lieu of moving to the suburbs, and looking for quality, educational-based childcare to help prepare them for the future. Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with the idea to combine learning with child care, and made a commitment to be a leader in the industry. Kiddie Academy has developed a comprehensive educational child care program for its academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for child care. This location will utilize a curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. The programs will emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.

With plans for continued growth, Kiddie Academy is looking for interested and qualified franchisees to bring education-based child care to communities all over North America. With 40 more Academies expected to open in 2018, Kiddie Academy’s network will grow to more than 240 open and operating locations next year. To inquire regarding franchise opportunities please visit
