Texas Kiddie Academy Hosts "Super" Grand Opening Event
Congratulations to new Kiddie Academy franchise owners Joann Johnson and Jason Shastri, who recently opened Kiddie Academy® of Pearland West. The newest Texas Kiddie Academy hosted a Super Hero-themed grand opening event, complete with an inflatable bounce house, DJ with live music, face painting, balloon sculptures, crafts and activities for the children to enjoy, raffle prizes and light refreshments.
The children really enjoyed all of the activities and were able to explore the new educational childcare center.
“This event was a perfect opportunity to meet the families within the community, introduce them to the Kiddie Academy brand and philosophy and conduct a tour of the academy,” said Joann Johnson, franchise owner of Kiddie Academy of Pearland West. “We believe that it’s extremely important to foster bonds between not only our educators and children, but between educators and parents, academies and the local community; this event helped to facilitate that goal.”
Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with the idea to combine learning with child care, and a commitment to be a leader in the industry. Kiddie Academy developed a comprehensive education-based child care program for its academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for child care. The Pearland West location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Johnson, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.
“For the last several decades, Kiddie Academy has experienced phenomenal growth and we’re very pleased to bring that growth to the West Pearland area. Our success is a testament to not only the brand but the franchisees and their communities,” said Mike Miller, CEO and president of Kiddie Academy.
