A Maryland-based educational child care group will break ground on a New Braunfels location on May 20.

Kiddie Academy will be located at the southwest corner of FM 1101 and Kowald Lane and is anticipated to open in late fall of 2021.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to bring Kiddie Academy’s advanced curriculum and philosophies to children and families of New Braunfels,” said local owner Dr. Michelle Meza in a press release. “Our goal at Kiddie Academy is to feed a child’s curiosity and instinct to learn.”

Since its foundation in 1981, the academy has expanded to more than 275 locations throughout the country and offers full-time care, before and after school care and summer camp programs for children ages 6 to 12 years old.

Enrollment will begin this summer and those interested can contact Meza at 830-420-6300, [email protected] or visit www.kiddieacademy.com.
