AKIDEMY is a program delivered in the West Springs community in Calgary, Alberta; established in 2014 by Tristan Katz and Dina Ottoni-Battistessa. We are family owned and operated centre and understand the importance of providing an environment where children feel safe and secure.
Providing the highest level of education and care for your child in a warm, nurturing and safe environment is our passion. We have completed post-secondary education in the field of Early Learning, Child Studies and Development and have continued to go on to be active members of the Early Learning community in Alberta.
We are closely tied to the Early Childhood and Education programs at Mount Royal University and Bow Valley College, delivering workshops and mentoring students through their studies and practicums. We have both worked for more than 15 years in programming, administrative and leadership roles in a variety of settings in the field of Early Childhood Education.
Creating the best opportunities for children, where they are encouraged to explore, learn and develop in a loving and nurturing environment is our goal. Each and every child at AKIDEMY is important to us and we look forward to meeting you and your child.
