May 12, 2014 // Franchising.com // Doodle Bugs! Children’s Centers, a leading early childhood education provider, is opening their first Florida location in Lake Worth in July. The center is located on Hypoluxo Road, between Military and Haverhill Roads. The Lake Worth school can accommodate 185 children, infancy through age 12, and employs an experienced team of over 30 that includes a center director and degreed teachers.
Doodle Bugs! in Lake Worth is now accepting enrollments and parents are encouraged to stop in for tours of the new state-of-the-art facility, receive exciting information about the center and meet the director, Amy Collins. A grand opening celebration is planned for the summer.
"Our mission has remained the same since our inception more than 20 years ago — to build a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers," said Anthony Insinna, CEO of Doodle Bugs!. "We’re eager to introduce families in and around South Florida to the ‘Doodle Differences’ and look forward to becoming an integral part of the community while helping children reach their full potential."
According to Insinna, the "Doodle Differences" include the WatchMeGrow video surveillance system where enrolled families can securely view their child’s classroom online from any device, allowing them to stay connected all day long. Additionally, Doodle Bugs! provides a healthy menu filled with fresh fruit and meals prepared onsite in their professional-grade kitchen.
Unlike typical daycares, 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 pioneering curriculum, spacious classrooms, huge outdoor playgrounds, in-ground swimming pool, biometric security systems, Doodle Bugs! is now meeting the growing demand for quality early education and child care programs in South Florida.
"Research evidence overwhelmingly shows that participation in a high-quality early education program makes a critical difference in a child’s development of language, vocabulary, early math and social skills," Insinna said. "At Doodle Bugs!, we are passionate about making a difference in the community and promise to deliver the best and most trusted early childhood education for the families in and around Lake Worth as we have in Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh communities."
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 operates more than 13 corporate and franchised locations from upstate New York to Pennsylvania, and has expanded its "doodle community" to more than 2,000 families.
The center is an integral part of the company’s national expansion. In addition to the Lake Worth location, which is corporate-owned and operated, Doodle Bugs! is developing a Sarasota which is scheduled to open in mid-2015. The company plans to open additional locations in Florida communities and is currently accepting franchise applications.
