Jason & MyRanda Jones open Kiddie Academy of Franklin with a grand opening celebration slated for Saturday, September 30


Former Tennessee Titans player, Jason Jones, and his wife MyRanda, opened an education-based child care facility, Kiddie Academy of Franklin, earlier this month. Jason Jones was a defensive end for the Titans organization from 2008 to 2011. The Jones’ have planned a FREE, community-wide family celebration event for their grand opening on Saturday, September 30 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at 100 Westwing Court, Franklin, TN.

Kiddie Academy’s nationally recognized child education programs intrigued both Jason and MyRanda in 2014 while attending an NFL Bootcamp that highlighted franchising opportunities. MyRanda has her Master’s Degree in Early Child Development from Tennessee State University and they have two children.

Kiddie Academy’s Grand Opening Celebration is an opportunity for the public to visit the facility for a free day of fun for the entire family. The event will start at 10 a.m. with Storytime LIVE where Curious George jumps off the page and visits the class in person. In the afternoon, they will have a variety of activities to include outside games, bounce houses, face painting, food trucks, Jet’s Pizza and the Jet’s Mascot – Jet Man.

See a complete schedule below. While the event is free and open to the public, parents must register their child to attend Storytime LIVE at http://kastorytime.com/registration.php?enrollmentId=46.
