In the Baltimore Sun

In support of Kiddie Academy’s growing footprint, and in honor of the company’s first Baltimore City franchise, a story was recently pitched to the media to highlight Kiddie Academy’s unique educational child care model and how we work to implement it across our network of franchises.

The Baltimore Sun’s Carrie Wells reported the story, featuring a photo of the co-owner of the Kiddie Academy of Locust Point, Nimita Sheth on the front page of the Business section. The article included interviews with Nimita, as well as Kiddie Academy President, Greg Helwig and VP of Franchise Development, Greg White.

Kiddie Academy of Fort Wayne Franchisee Honored

Hajira Khan, Kiddie Academy of Ft. Wayne

Congratulations to Hajira Khan, owner of Kiddie Academy of Fort Wayne, who was just named Female Executive of the Year by the Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly. The 2015 Northeast Indiana Business Excellence Awards is a new competition designed to recognize the very best in business, honoring companies and individuals in northeast Indiana.

Hajira and the other competition winners will be honored at a luncheon on Thursday, April 16, 2015 and also featured in a special publication inside Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly on April 17. “The judges were very tough going into this new awards competition,” said Terry Ward, chief executive officer for KPC Media Group Inc and publisher of Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly. “They were charged with identifying the best of the best and scrutinized each nominee carefully. As a consequence, some categories were not awarded this year and in others the judges asked to also recognize additional companies as honorees, which speaks volumes about the caliber of this year’s winners and honorees. We are privileged to introduce these companies and individuals to northeast Indiana, holding them up as models to emulate,” said Ward.

Why I Opened a Kiddie Academy

Kiddie Academy franchisees are often employees who decide to leave the corporate world and become their own boss.  Here’s a great Kiddie Academy franchise review by Karim Bensouda, the owner of Kiddie Academy of Ashburn, VA. He wrote about his experience in this article, “Why I Left Corporate America to Follow My Passion and Open a Preschool” posted on Care LuLu.


Here’s an excerpt from Karim’s story:

“I started a child care because I believe every child needs a safe, nurturing and a challenging environment where they can learn and explore.  Few of the pre-schools and child care programs that I visited prior to opening Kiddie Academy of Ashburn were run with a primary focus on business.  It bothered me a little bit not because it was wrong, but because the focus has shifted from quality and personal care to enrollment by the numbers. I remind myself and my management team and staff every day that we are here for the children and their families, and our passion for what we do should never cease.”
