Former Titan, educator open curriculum-based child care facility

Former Tennessee Titans player Jason Jones and his wife MyRanda opened an education-based child care facility,  Kiddie Academy® of Franklin, earlier this month.

MyRanda has her Master’s Degree in Early Child Development from Tennessee State University. Jason Jones was a defensive end for the Titans organization from 2008 to 2011. They have two children.

The Jones’ have planned a FREE, community-wide family celebration event for their Grand Opening from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30, at 100 Westwind Court, Franklin.

Kiddie Academy’s nationally recognized child education programs intrigued both Jason and MyRanda in 2014 while attending an NFL Bootcamp that highlighted franchising opportunities.
“This was the perfect fit for our family,” MyRanda Jones said. “Jason and I were very impressed with Kiddie Academy’s proprietary Life Essentials® curriculum, supporting programs, methods, activities and techniques that help prepare children for life. In addition, we knew that Franklin had a need for an educational facility that serves children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old that offers full-time care, before and after-school programs as well as summer camps.”

Kiddie Academy, founded in 1981, began with the idea to combine learning with child care, and developed a comprehensive education-based child care program for its academies, which are structured to respond to the increasing demand for child care. The Franklin location utilizes the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. According to Jones, the programs emphasize continuous, open communication between teachers and parents concerning each child’s development.
