Than An
Opportunity

Owning a school is more than just being an entrepreneur. Celebree School franchisees have a passion for improving the lives of children. They nurture, educate, enrich, inspire, challenge, develop, advise, guide, instruct, and mentor. They help lay a foundation for lifelong success.

A Growing Industry

The demand for quality education has never been low, but it is now sharply rising. More than ever, both parents and children need quality daycare and early education. For parents, it gives them peace of mind while away at work, and for children, it gives them a space to learn, grow, and flourish.

Steps to Ownership

Step 1

Inquire

Fill out the Initial Inquiry Form with your contact information, financial qualifications, and territory of interest.

Step 2

Let’s Get to Know Each Other
Upon receipt of your Initial Inquiry Form, we will contact you to set a date and time to speak with a Sales Director. It is a no obligation call, more of an informal conversation to get to know each other. We very much want to learn about you and your interest in our childcare business. We’ll also take this time to provide you with information about market availability and next steps.

Step 3

Application
After this initial call, if our franchise professional believes you meet the personality and financial profiles, we will send you a more comprehensive application. Deadlines for submission will be discussed and we will provide a contact number in case you have any questions. When we receive this application, we will forward the 2023 Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).

Step 4

Evaluation
While you review the FDD, our team will evaluate your application. You can expect some back and forth calls or emails during this phase. That way you get the clearest possible picture of our childcare business, and we can get the clearest possible picture of your suitability. If we confirm you as a qualified candidate, you will be invited to join us for an in-depth look at Celebree School!

Step 5

Discover Celebree School

This is the best part! We will welcome you to our Discovery Day at our corporate headquarters in Nottingham, MD. Over the course of 1 to 2 days, candidates will get to know our founder and each of our franchise leadership team members. They will also have the opportunity to visit some of our franchise schools and learn more directly from franchisees who have been in their shoes. This is when we really come together as a group focused on something that’s bigger than all of us.

Each room is furnished with specific needs in mind for all ages of Celebree students. With two separate playgrounds, Celebree students have the freedom to explore and enjoy the outdoors.

At Celebree School, we plan appropriate activities and strategies to help children meet their developmental milestones. Children are particularly intuitive. They know when an educator is genuine. When they feel that comfort level and understand that we are focused on their best interests, they will learn and grow.
