The childcare industry plays a significant role in our economy. As more and more families have both parents working outside of the home, the need for childcare continues to grow. In addition, the need for higher levels of quality childcare continues to increase. We are experiencing trends where parents are waiting later in life to have children and are, therefore, financially able to afford and demand higher quality care for their children.
We are unique to the childcare industry and know that you will experience many advantages of owning a Growing Room Franchise. A few of those advantages are:
- Benefit from our experience and success as a top quality childcare provider
- Direct contact with our owner, the person who started our business
- Benefit of the Growing Room name and reputation
- Affiliation with the 2004 National Small Business of the Year
- Training, Operation Manuals and Hands On Guidance from Experts
- Assistance with site selection, building design & construction, decor, curriculum, staffing, marketing, and center operations
- Corporate Childcare Management Experience with a Fortune 500 Company
- Flexibility of owning your own business with the ability to have support at your fingertips
We believe the procedures, manuals and training that we give our franchisees provide them with the roadmap they need to own a successful center. However, your desire, efforts and dedication will ultimately be the determining factor of your success.
Growing Room is an award winning company, dedicated to providing a childcare experience like no other. Our centers provide a unique child-friendly environment where children are treated with dignity and respect, enjoy a clean and safe facility and participate in daily educational experiences to form a lifelong foundation for success.
Our company began in the heart of our President and CEO, Sheree Mitchell, R.N. As a mother, she herself had experienced poor quality childcare for her own son and felt strongly that children deserved more. Her ideas have transformed and developed into an unprecedented childcare environment and a proven, successful early childhood education program. Growing Room began with one center and has continued to grow from there, adding additional company owned centers, as well as, partnering with a Fortune 500 company to manage two corporate on-site childcare centers.
The Growing Room Experience
A Growing Room child experiences a world rich with learning and love. Their school environment is filled with color, texture and the best in educational materials and technology. Our teachers are nurturing individuals who are trained and certified in our own early childhood education program. They are the best of the best!
