Kiddie Academy Child Care
A few weeks ago I discussed the franchising opportunities with Kiddie Academy. As a working mom and the daughter of a working mom, child care has always been a part of our lives. I am lucky enough to have my aunt living with us now so W doesn’t have to go anywhere while I work. For many working parents, child care is just a fact of family life.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to open your own child care learning center, Kiddie Academy has franchise opportunities that work for people from a variety of backgrounds. Over the next few weeks I will share some of the great stories of people changing their lives with their own Kiddie Academy.
From Educator to Franchisee
Meet Wendy Barry. She is Kiddie Academy’s very first franchisee.
She has a focus on education and is proof that Kiddie Academy is not just another typical day care center.
Background. Before opening her Kiddie Academy Learning Center, Wendy was a special education teacher for 10 years. After the birth of her daughter and some research, she discovered that a Kiddie Academy franchise was right for her both professionally and personally.
Goals. Because of her background in education, Wendy is always focused on achieving high educational standards. She also works to develop rapport with her families and the community.
Challenges. While being the first can be an amazing experience, it also has unique challenges. When Wendy was working to open her Kiddie Academy there were no other academies in her area. It left the weight of brand awareness and support on her shoulders. All of the franchisees that followed benefited from her work!
Results. Wendy’s business has continued to grow over the years. For the past 17 years she has provided a safe environment for children to learn. Her Kiddie Academy is a place that parents can rely on for the care of their children. She has a terrific reputation in her community and has won numerous awards!
Kiddie Academy Franchise Opportunities
If you are considering opening a Kiddie Academy franchise but might be the first in your area, remember Wendy and go for it! Just because you’re the first doesn’t mean you’ll be the last! Through hard work and the support of the Kiddie Academy franchising program, you might end up like Wendy Barry one day!
