Groundbreaking ceremony for Kiddie Academy of Abingdon in Harford County, MD

Renowned education/child care franchise to build a state-of-the-art facility in Harford County.

Kiddie Academy®, a leading provider of comprehensive education-based child care programs, is coming to the Abingdon area. In preparation for its opening, the franchise conducted a groundbreaking ceremony on April 27th. The new academy will be located at 3495 Box Hill Corporate Center Drive, conveniently situated off interstate 95 next to the Boulevard at Box Hill.

Kiddie Academy of Abingdon is scheduled to open in September 2015, and will serve 149 children between six weeks and 12 years old. The groundbreaking ceremony marks an important step in supporting families within the Abingdon and Bel Air community.

"This is a really exciting time for us and we are eager to introduce our well-trained, attentive staff to local area parents and their children. We look forward to assisting local children in developing the confidence and self-esteem necessary to meet the challenges of tomorrow," said Richard Peterson, vice president of education at Kiddie Academy. "Our passion and dedication to providing high-quality child care is at the heart of the Kiddie Academy difference."

Kiddie Academy of Abingdon will have a positive impact on the local economy, creating approximately 30 jobs within the community. The building itself will be LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified, which will recognize it as utilizing best-in-class green building practices. Because of this certification, Kiddie Academy of Abingdon will save on resources and have a positive impact on the health of all families and staff while promoting renewable, clean energy.

The new state-of-the-art academy in Abingdon will serve as a benchmark and model for all Kiddie Academy locations across the country. Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with the idea of combining learning with child care and a commitment to be a leader in the industry. With over 130 locations nationwide, 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 Abingdon location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum, which promotes each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Peterson, 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," Peterson added.
