Kiddie Academy Opens 300th Location Nationwide, First In Iowa

July 11, 2022 // // ABINGDON, Md. - Kiddie Academy Educational Child Care has opened the 300th Academy in the Kiddie Academy system in Urbandale, Iowa. 

“We're dedicated to developing what is unique in every child and understand that every interaction is an opportunity to leave a positive impact," said Kiddie Academy Domestic Franchising, LLC President Joshua Frick. “The 300th Academy milestone is a chance to reflect on how far we’ve come and to look ahead. We look forward to nurturing, educating and inspiring thousands of children in communities across the country for years to come.”

Kiddie Academy Domestic Franchising, LLC has been ranked on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list for the past 20 years and has been recognized by top franchise lists published by Franchise Direct, Franchise Times,, Franchise Gator and more.

“Rankings like this are based on a franchise system’s fiscal strength, stability and development, further solidifying Kiddie Academy's reputation as an industry leader in both franchising and educational child care,” said Frick.

In the past year, the Kiddie Academy system celebrated 40 years of early childhood education with a $40,000 donation to Family Promise, a national nonprofit focused on providing prevention, shelter and stabilization services to communities nationwide. The donation was used to launch a leadership academy offering training to staff at Family Promise affiliates and scholarships focused on helping women achieve career growth in early childhood education. As a result of this effort, Kiddie Academy Domestic Franchising, LLC was named the 2022 Cause Marketing Champion in Franchise Update Media’s Franchise Innovation Awards.

The 300th Academy in the Kiddie Academy system represents the first location in Iowa and will bring 28 jobs to the Urbandale area. The location will serve 182 children ages six months to 12 years using the Kiddie Academy brand and proprietary Life Essentials curriculum, which exceeds Iowa’s state early learning and preschool standards.
