Early childhood education is always in the headlines these days. Our team has been reimagining ways to disrupt the industry in a positive way—a way that benefits educators, parents and children. As an entrepreneur, I have been a franchisee, independent childcare provider, and a franchisor of large childcare centers. I understand the industry from many different perspectives, and I know that the childcare business models of the past are not going to solve the main problems of the industry today: staff turnover, affordability, and quality. With Young Innovators Academy, our team is sharing what we have learned as successful operators of profitable high- quality childcare centers. We seek to create the change we want to see in the industry: early learning environments designed around the pillars of quality that elevate the careers of educators and help young children become the fearless problem-solvers of tomorrow. I am not your typical CEO. I bring a knowledge of education and technology into the business of childcare. Join the movement of preparing children to become the innovators of the future.
