Hi, My name is Leah Bailey. I have been in the childcare field for sixteen years. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood. Out of high school I began working in preschools, as I was attending college. After having two children of my own, I ran a small home preschool for several years. They are both now in grade school, so I am beginning a new chapter in my life with Kiddie Academy. I understand how important it is to provide children with quality care, which will give them the skills they need to succeed in life and school. I love what I do and I am excited to welcome families to our academy as they begin their education with us.
Hi, my name is Barbara Stockton. I am so excited to be opening a Kiddie Academy in Arizona with my daughter, Leah. This has always been Leah's dream to open a quality child care center. When we became aware of Kiddie Academy and their outstanding cirriculum we both felt that it would be a good fit for us.I have retired early from the Postal Service to help Leah with her passion and to start a new chapter in my life. I am a mother of two wonderful daughters and seven energetic grandchildren. I will wear many hats and plan to work tirelessly to provide a second home to our children, parents and staff. I look forward to providing families in our community with a safe, quality, nuturing and loving learning experience with us at Kiddie Academy. I look forward to meeting our new friends and neighbors.
