A new child-care facility is coming to Franklin.

A groundbreaking was held Thursday for Kiddie Academy. Construction is now underway at its 100 Westwind Court location.

The company combines child care with education, utilizing a special curriculum. Kiddie Academy works with children 6 weeks old to 12 years old in full-time care, before and after school and summer-camp programs.

The company operates more than 170 locations across the country and plans to open 35 new locations this year, a press release said.
