October 24, 2016 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI, DAYTON, and COLUMBUS, Ohio – All About Kids Childcare and Learning Centers today announced that it will open a new center in the Columbus area in mid-2017. The center, located in Hilliard, Ohio, will be the third location in central Ohio for the Cincinnati-based company, which opened its second franchise in Powell, Ohio in December 2015. The company’s first Columbus-area center opened in Lewis Center, Ohio in May 2015. The company has aggressive expansion plans for Columbus with a goal of 10 local franchise locations in the next five years. Currently, All About Kids and its franchisees operate 12 centers in the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus areas, with a 13th location in the final stages of construction.
All About Kids is not a just a childcare facility; it is also a learning center. In addition to having an innovative curriculum, each center buses to and from local schools and has cameras and fingerprint monitoring to give parents peace of mind that their children are safe. Each center has the capacity for 184 children, ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age, and can employ up to 40 full time and part-time staff. The state-of-the-art facilities are constructed with the environment in mind and are one of the only childcare franchises in the United States that have LEED-certified building and operate with a "green" mentality. The new Hilliard location will serve families from Hilliard, Dublin, Amlin and other surrounding communities.
“We see Columbus as our next major center of growth, and in addition to the Hilliard location, we have several other locations that we are looking at to expand,” said Greg Davis of All About Kids. “We have spent the past 11 years building the All About Kids concept, and we are truly at a tipping point for growth in Ohio. Our two franchises in Powell and Lewis Center are doing very well, and have been well received by their communities. We anticipate that the Hilliard location will open in early to mid 2017, and will provide parents and children a first-class childcare experience.”
In addition to the tailored curriculum, All About Kids also offers a variety of educational enrichment tools, including American Sign Language and Spanish language programs at no additional costs to families. The company’s emphasis on green is carried throughout the learning environment and the building through exterior gardens, rainwater collection, recycling and other eco-friendly practices, and energy saving features.
