May 31, 2016 // Franchising.com // DULUTH, Georgia – Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, a national early childhood education franchise with three decades of experience, has announced that two of its Humble, Texas centers located at 6262 Upper Lake Drive and 18410 Timber Forest Drive are under new ownership.
The new owners are Paul and Tammy Huff and Richard and Linda Zoll. The partners have owned the Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies of West Frisco since August 2005 and opened the Kids ‘R’ Kids at Legacy West in October 2010. Tammy and Paul are actively involved in the daily operations of all four schools. Paul, a former corporate executive in the oil industry, most recently served as President of Kelman Technologies, USA and Tammy has worked for over 20 years for Shell and Amoco handling oil and gas exploration. Richard has held various management and technical positions and founded a geophysical service company in the oil and gas exploration field, while Linda serves on the boards of several national non-profit organizations. The franchise group is in the midst of remodeling both locations with a new color scheme, flooring and furniture, as well as making technological upgrades to the computer labs and classrooms.
“Making a difference in the lives of local families has been one of the most rewarding experiences as a business owner since joining the Kids ‘R’ Kids family over a decade ago,” said Paul Huff. “The company is committed to providing the highest quality standards in early childhood education and we would not have made the decision to purchase additional locations if we did not wholeheartedly believe in the concept and all that it stands for.”
For the past 30 years, Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies has upheld its long-standing principle of strengthening and encouraging childhood development on an emotional, intellectual, social and physical level through a unique partnership between its child care providers and parents.
The company offers a variety of curriculum programs designed for infants through prekindergarten. Its proprietary First Class Curriculum™ is designed specifically for every developmental stage of education with theme-based units, specific learning activities and teacher-friendly lesson plans. Most recently, Kids ‘R’ Kids launched a revolutionary music curriculum called ColorSoundation™, which was developed by noted Los Angeles-based musician and teacher Shiho Yamamoto, to teach very young children the fundamentals of music through the integration and interplay of colors with sounds. Last year, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies unveiled its new STEAM AHEAD™ curriculum, an integrated project-based curriculum for preschool students, ages three to five, which incorporates more science, technology, engineering, art, and math into everyday learning through play.
With a nationally awarded curriculum, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies provides early education and care for children from six weeks through 12 years of age at its nearly 160 schools located in 16 states across the country. Programs offered to children include infant care, toddler and preschooler care, private pre-K and kindergarten, before-and-afterschool care and summer camp. In order to provide even more convenience for families with busy schedules, Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies remain open during all major school breaks and holidays nationwide, all year round.
Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies has been accredited by AdvancED in America for more than six years, the world’s largest education community.
