“We feel there’s good traffic at that location,” he said. “It can draw a good mix from Munster, Dyer and Schererville. Plus the South Shore Line train station will be built by there, making it convenient for the commuters.”
Patel said he’s locating Kiddie Academies in communities with strong education systems where parents value education.
“It’s a good service to complement the strong K-12 schools, which are excellent,” he said. “It’s not just child care, it has an educational component.”
Kiddie Academy in Crown Point is open from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
