KENOSHA, WI--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - The public is invited to join in recognizing the Tuttle family for over 45 years of business contributions to the Kenosha/Pleasant Prairie Community on August 19th from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm when a proclamation will be presented by Kenosha Mayor Keith Bosman and a resolution will be presented by the Village of Pleasant Prairie during an open house at Kiddie Kare A'Kademie. The family will be recognized for serving as owners and operators of Mr. Softee, Kiddie Kollege/A'Kademie, Canada Dry Distribution and Treasures Christian Book & Boutique.

In August of 2011 Kiddie Kare A'Kademie celebrates 20 years of providing exceptional, high quality child care and education to over 2,500 children and families in the Kenosha/Pleasant Prairie area at their current location on 39th Avenue. The community is invited to tour the A'Kademie and join in the celebration of 45 years by receiving free childcare registration, a $45 value, through September 9, 2011. The A'Kademie has always placed a high value on curriculum and its positive educational program engages children between 12 months and 12 years old.

The Tuttle family has been providing pre-school services to local children since the fall of 1966. Prior to opening their current location, founder, Mrs. Stella Tuttle, was the administrator of Kiddie Kollege & Kiddie A'Kademie with plans to incorporate a full pre-school program into a childcare setting. In 1991 that program was opened at their current location, 9244 39th Avenue, to further serve the Kenosha/Pleasant Prairie area. Holly Tuttle, who has been with Kiddie Kare A'Kademie since the doors opened in 1991, is now the new owner. She and her team of teachers are excited to make sure Kiddie Kare A'Kademie remains the very best place for families to enroll their next generation.

Mayor Bosman recognized Kiddie Kare A'Kademie's achievement with a message, "Congratulations to Kiddie Kare A'Kademie for 45 years of providing exceptionally high quality child care and education to the children and families of Kenosha." Village President John Steinbrink remarked, "We would like to thank Kiddie Kare A'Kademie for growing their business here in Pleasant Prairie. And, speaking from experience, as my own children attended Kiddie Kollege, I'd like to sincerely thank the Tuttle family for the great care they take in the positive development of Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie's youth."

Kiddie Kare A'Kademie has always realized that choosing a pre-school is one of the most important decisions a parent will make. Their continued success over 45 years is based on offering a safe, nurturing and educationally sound environment where local children learn and flourish. All of the teachers and staff are dedicated to developing every child's learning potential as well as forming a strong partnership with parents. All of the well-trained teachers meet or exceed the Department of Human Services' standards.
