On April 5, local business owner Devinder Singh and his team from Kiddie Academies of Greater Seattle were joined by Kenmore City Mayor, David Baker, to celebrate the groundbreaking of Kiddie Academy of Kenmore, coming this winter to the Kenmore area.

With 200 locations open nationwide, Kiddie Academy has been a leader in education-based child care for over 35 years. Kiddie Academies of Greater Seattle runs its highly sought-after program at four locations at Bothell, Kirkland, Mill Creek and Seattle at Queen Anne. In addition to Kiddie Academy of Kenmore, they are also developing Kiddie Academy of Bellevue Downtown.

“We look forward to extending our award winning educational childcare services to children in the Kenmore area,” Singh said.

The state-of-the-art facility will be equipped to serve children ages six weeks to five years and is located at 7800 Bothell Way NE in Kenmore, WA.

“Kenmore is a pretty friendly city,” Baker said. “We find a way to make things happened. We are really excited to have Kiddie Academy here. Opening a facility like Kiddie Academy means a lot to us. Kenmore is a very family-friendly city and has been highly recommended for families by various magazines. We do a lot for children in community. We started a canoe and kayak program in the city with overwhelming success. Education is always important to us. It is very exciting to have facility to work with young children.”

“Early childhood education is an important part of a child’s life as they learn to navigate the world around them,” Baker added. “I believe that the skills children learn in preschool prepares them for school and for life. I am glad to hear Kiddie Academy’s commitment to high quality early learning program and I am excited to see this project take off the ground.”

“This is a really exciting time for us and we’re thrilled to introduce our well-trained, attentive staff to local area parents and their children. In the near future, we look forward to assisting local children in developing the confidence and skills necessary they need to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” Singh said.

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 education-based child care program for its academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for child care.

The Kenmore location utilizes a curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Singh, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.

“We invite children to embark on the Kiddie Academy journey that will enable them to learn and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually,” Singh said.
