My name is Alyssa Scholes and I am the Director of Kiddie Academy of Mountain View.
I first became a part of the Kiddie Academy family in 1995 when I started as a teacher. I was promoted to Director in 1997 and have remained in this position ever since. We were the first Kiddie Academy in California and it was very exciting to be part of it. It's been so much fun growing with the academy and I believe whole-heartedly in everything we do.
In 1993, I started my career in education as a pre-kindergarten teacher. I am currently continuing my education in Early Child Development and have experience working with children of all ages. I have been a member of NAEYC for the past 14 years and a member of NACCP as well.
When families walk through our doors, they are becoming a part of the Kiddie Academy family. Our dedication to providing high-quality educational child care and our commitment to becoming a focal point within in the community is what sets Kiddie Academy apart. At Kiddie Academy, we work on building the whole child: academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.
In addition to my role at Kiddie Academy of Mountain View, I am also the mother of four children, all of whom have grown up at the academy. My husband of 13 years can sometimes be found in the academy working as our IT consultant. We have two dogs and 2 cats. We are all very avid Disney fans and visit there quite frequently. My hobbies include: reading, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. My current travel goal is to visit all 50 states! I am half way there.
I am very excited to welcome you to our Kiddie Academy family!!
