Kidville Canada President Cathy Piedra-McKenzie is a
busy professional mom who like many others, found herself frustrated when planning activities for her kids. She found options limited by schedule or location, and struggled to find the right mix that fit her family’s busy schedule.

Impressed with Kidville’s curriculum, scheduling and its great one-stop approach to early childhood development, Cathy decided that every community needs a Kidville and partnered with the US-based company to bring the award-winning Kidville franchise to Canada. Kidville Canada will open its first flagship location in Toronto.

Before kidville canada, she earned a Bachelor of Commerce from Ryerson University, Cathy joined PepsiCo Canada where she spent six years fostering her business acumen And then SpinMaster Toys developing and marketing toddler toys.

Karrie McLeod

Kidville Academy supervisor

Hello, my name is Karrie McLeod. I grew up in Nova Scotia and have known from the young age of 12 that my future profession would revolve around children. Now with over 10 years of experience in the childcare sector, spanning all ages from infant to school-age, I hope to bring my knowledge, passion and dedication here to make your experience with us exceptional.

I have a strong passion for social and emotional development and do my best to strengthen children's autonomy while still being available to them. Children need to feel safe, secure, loved and free to explore and experience their world. With a strong base and opportunities to practice their skills our children can accomplish so much!

I am very excited to join Kidville!
