Meet Our Leadership

Muriel Yeboah
– Owner

Hello!! I’m Muriel Yeboah, proud owner of Midlothian Kids Academy. I have a double Master’s degree in Geography and Business Administration as well as a Ph.D in Geography. I am an educationist who taught from middle through tertiary institutions for over two decades. My husband John is a physician and has been serving the Richmond/Chesterfield community for over 12 years. We have lived in Midlothian, Chesterfield for over 12 years and now calls it home. From our own experience as working parents, my husband and I know how difficult it can be to find quality childcare that works for both parents and children. It is out of this experience that Midlothian Kids Academy came into existence. We have five children of our own in different generation groups from eight to thirty years.
