A new child care facility broke ground in Lone Tree on Dec. 13. Kiddie Academy, a day care facility with locations across the United States, will be Lone Tree's newest before-and-after-school company when it opens in summer 2019.
The center will be owned by Hermant and Prinal Kapadia, who are Lone Tree residents.
Kiddie Academy is an “education-based” child care center serving full-time, before-school and after-school programs. It will also provide summer programs. The building will cover 11,000 square feet, located at 10344 Park Meadows Drive, just south of the Kaiser Permanente building and Lincoln light rail station. The facility will serve 189 children from ages 6 to 12.
Mayor Jackie Millet spoke during the groundbreaking ceremony Dec. 13, saying the addition of the new academy reflects a boom in the city's job market. According to the city's website, there are about 20,657 jobs in Lone Tree, up 42 percent from 2014.
Millet said the project “brings something to the community that we desperately needed.”
“We are becoming more and more of an employment center, and child care is becoming an increasing need for our residents and the people that do business here,” Millet said.
