A Note from Kidville’s
Founder & CEO, Rammy Harwood


Welcome to
JW Kidville

Since founding Kidville over 16 years ago, my greatest accomplishment (other than my family!) has been  leading, listening to and learning from the team of remarkable Kidville Play Professionals who have positively imprinted the minds and hearts of families around the world. What started as a simple idea to improve the lives of families and children, has grown to a business that operates in multiple locations across the United States, Canada, and now in China. I am so proud of the work that our team has put into creating the strong international brand that Kidville is today, and am even more thrilled to see its continued success in China for many years to come. 


Our expansion into China

We have long contemplated introducing our Kidville branded classes, birthday parties, camps, and preschool alternative programs into mainland China, but knew that it would not be possible without the right timing, the right team, and most importantly, the right leader. In 2016 I had the pleasure of meeting Tiger Liu, and after two years of discussions, meetings, and trainings in both New York and Shanghai, I was honored to be at the Grand Opening of JW Kidville’s first official location in the Golden Eagle mall in Shanghai and then returning as we expanded the brand to Wuhan and Nanjing in 2019.  




JW Kidville takes the stage

As we expand our presence in China, I wanted to let you all know that in lieu of certain situations, and in honor of our adorable new mascot, Jin William, we have decided that going forward we will operate under the name JW Kidville in all of our stores in China. 

While the name may be slightly different than our American stores, I want to ensure you that everything else remains consistent with our Kidville brand and the stores which are operated under JW Kidville are the ONLY authentic Kidville stores in all of mainland China. 


See you soon!

I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children over the coming years, as I travel in for each JW Kidville Grand Opening ceremony and want to say thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family’s life. 

I will leave you with our signature greeting,

Welcome to JW Kidville.
