Children of America's Nationwide Expansion Plan Unfolds with Sicklerville Childcare Center Opening

DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Children of America, a subsidiary of World Wide Child Care Corp. (Pink Sheets:WWCC), continues to take significant steps in its strategic growth initiatives with 18 childcare center locations in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia, including its most recent opening in Sicklerville, N.J., the second of several locations slated to open in New Jersey.

Following a clearly defined strategy for sustained growth, Children of America plans to open eight additional childcare centers including the first of many in Delaware, Maryland and New York by the end of the year. These centers will bring Children of America one step closer to creating a nationwide, 75-unit family of childcare centers in the next three years.

"We are following a well-defined expansion plan that will help us to become a nationally recognized childcare service provider," said Thad Pryor, Children of America president and CEO. "As we seek out the very best, safest locations for our new centers, we also maintain our commitment to our family of children and parents at our established centers by providing attentive caregivers, specially designed curriculums and fun, stimulating environments."

As Children of America moves forward with its expansion, it has also begun taking measures to earn accreditation and enhance the educational value provided by all of its childcare centers by actively implementing the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). To date, 16 of Children of America's center directors have completed the company's Principal Certification Program to receive their certification and earn the title as center Principal, while many assistant center directors are nearing their program completion date.

"Our success as a leading childcare provider comes from the enduring devotion of our center directors and assistant directors as they earn the trust of our students and their parents," said Jim Perretty, Children of America vice president and COO.
