Doodle Bugs! Names Natasha Fleury as Director of Marketing and Communications

Leading Early Childhood Franchise Expands Executive Team as it Continues U.S. Growth 

BUFFALO, N.Y. - April 3, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Doodle Bugs! Children's Centers, a leading early childhood education provider, announced today it has named Natasha Fleury as director of marketing and communications. Fleury has more than a decade's worth of experience managing and directing broad-based marketing programs in the franchise and child-centric industries.

In her new role with Doodle Bugs! Fleury will be responsible for developing multichannel strategies to further enhance Doodle Bugs! image, sales revenue and recognition. Fleury holds a bachelor of science degree from Towson University in Baltimore, Md.

"Natasha's wealth of experience and industry knowledge has made her a key addition to the Doodle Bugs! team," said Anthony Insinna , CEO of Doodle Bugs! "I'm confident that she will be an integral component of our continued success and ongoing national growth."

Founded more than 20 years ago by siblings Anthony, Clarine and Anna Insinna , Doodle Bugs! has remained family-owned and operated since its first center opened with 24 students. Today, the company is the official childcare provider of the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres, operates more than 10 corporate and franchised locations from Upstate New York to Pennsylvania, and has expanded its 'Doodle Community' to more than 2,000 families.

Over the next several years, Doodle Bugs! is seeking to expand its presence across the country. To fuel this growth, the company is looking for specific franchises candidates who have the ability and the desire to learn and follow a system that builds a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers. Unlike typical early child care, Doodle Bugs! is education-based and teaches students through its innovative and proprietary BRAVO! Early Childhood Curriculum®, which is focused on building the foundation of a child's cognitive, social, physical and creative development. By combining state-of-the-art facilities that feature its pioneering curriculum, a two-story Doodleville indoor play village, spacious classrooms, huge outdoor playgrounds, biometric security systems and WatchMeGrow Internet-access, Doodle Bugs! is now meeting the growing demand for quality early education and child care across the East Coast. Childhood education experience is not required, but to meet certain state licensing regulations, franchisees will need to hire a qualified Center Director to oversee the educational component of operations. Candidates are required to demonstrate a minimum net worth of $800,000 and liquid assets of $200,000. Interested entrepreneurs can contact Russ Gugino, director of franchise development, at 866.668.5111 ext. or for more information.
