Innovative ECEC provider obtains approval to expand in California
US-based provider of early childhood education and care (ECEC) services, MUSE Global, has announced it has obtained approval to offer franchises to those interested in owning its own MUSE centre in the state of California.
This move follows the recent relaunch of the business to an international franchise system dedicated to sharing the founders vision of educating and inspiring young people to “live consciously within themselves”.
The group, founded in 2006, now consists of two campuses that offer a passion-based, child-centred education experience to early learners through to high school students.
MUSE was the first educational group in the US to offer a 100 per cent organic, plant-based lunch program and, amongst other things, teach specialised courses such as Seed-to-Table to encourage a more sustainable lifestyle among students.
Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer Rebecca Amis said there was a growing need for high-quality early education opportunities in California, as evidenced by “the surprising distance current families are prepared to drive to participate in the program”.
Being able to offer franchise opportunities within California is “a huge step forward” in addressing the need, Ms Amis said.
Further information about MUSE may be found on their website.
