Director - Debra Simmons

Debra was the Center Director for our Washington Township KidAcademy for 14 years before assuming the Regional Director position in July 2012. KidAcademy is honored and proud to have a person of Debra’s high caliber as our Regional Director. She brings to the position experience as a hands-on director for many years along with highly coveted management skills. Debra is one of the hardest working people you are ever going to meet, which means better run schools for your children. She is also the most dedicated individual that any Childcare center could have on their management team. If you ever have any questions concerning any issues, please do not hesitate to call Debra directly as she is always available to speak to our parents. She graduated from Chapman College in Orange County, California with an Associate’s degree in Business Management and a minor in Early Childhood Education. Prior to Debra joining KidAcademy, she served in the United States Air Force for 4 years working in the Command Post. She was in charge of the flying sorties schedules for all pilots and navigators as well as scheduling their ongoing training. Her position at the Command Post offered her first-hand knowledge and training of missions related to all aspects of the Flight Officers. We applaud this very worthy career. “I truly love working with the children and look forward to seeing KidAcademy strive to be the best childcare has to offer for our Pre-School Education”.

Director -  Melanie Sofkos


Melanie Sofkos is the Center Director of the Mt. Laurel school and has been with KidAcademy since 1995. Melanie has worked with all age groups from 6 weeks to 5 years as well as supervising the School Age programs for our Summer Session. Melanie has credits towards her BS in Early Childhood Education from Rider University. She really loves people and enjoys communicating with staff and families as well.

My favorite thing about working with children is having the opportunity to watch them grow and develop. It’s awe-inspiring to watch an infant become a toddler and then a preschooler and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their learning and development through the years. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!

Director - Alexa Cannon


Alexa Cannon is the Center Director of the Westampton school and has been with KidAcademy. 

I always contribute my growth and development as a child to KidAcademy Learning Center. It’s where I took my first steps, learned to read, and has offered me a career. I hope to instill a piece of love and learning in each child that steps foot through our doors. KidAcademy has been my home away from home and I hope to reflect that onto our current and prospective families!
