Celebree School Signs First Franchise Agreement With Longtime Early Childhood Educator
Celebree School, a leader in early childhood education with 26 company-owned locations in Maryland and Delaware, recently announced the signing of its first franchise agreement. Franchisees Katie and Michael Young of Joppa, Maryland will own and operate the Celebree School, which is expected to open in the summer of 2020.
Becoming franchisees was a natural next step in the existing relationship the Youngs have with Celebree. Since 2013, Katie Young worked for Celebree School, most recently as director of the Fallston location.
“As an educator and a mom of two boys, I know firsthand how important it is to set a solid foundation for young children,” said Katie Young, who will serve as director of her new school. “Michael and I are excited to invest in a business with a long-standing and successful track record in early childhood education and I can’t wait to make an impact on lives of the families we will serve in the coming years.”
Announced in early 2019, opportunities to open Celebree Schools are available in Maryland, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
“An integral member of our team and valued resource for our families, Katie has a unique vantage point when it comes to our franchising opportunity,” said Richard Huffman, founder and CEO of Celebree. “I am honored she is continuing her path with Celebree School as our first franchisee and look forward to helping the Young family build a successful business.”
