Franchise Owner Testimonials



“My husband and I joined the MKU family in 2018. We recognized a need for exemplary childcare in our community in 2017, and attempted to start a Montessori school on our own. That process was not short on trials and tribulations, and ultimately we were unable to identify a bank with the gusto to partner with us having minimal experience with childcare. One of the banks that we were talking to had an agent that suggested we look for a franchise with a successful business plan to bridge the gap of our lack of experience. We found that with MKU. In hindsight we could have created a cocktail of failures in trying to start our own school. As the time went on we became thankful for unanswered prayers, and even more thankful that we had a resource in MKU to bridge the gap of our limited knowledge. MKU helped us in finding an outstanding location, negotiating a lease, a tried and true process, and a vendor relationship base that was turnkey. We’re very proud to be an extension of the franchise that will undoubtedly become a wholesale brand in the world of Montessori teaching. Our tenure is short, but the impact that we’ve been blessed to pass on to our community is beyond explanation. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of our franchise relationship with MKU, and look forward to a long lasting partnership.”


“My wife and I were both working long hours at our jobs while raising our infant and two year old daughters. We rarely saw each other and were basically living paycheck to paycheck. It was almost time to start our daughters in preschool so we began researching local schools and found that tuition rates were more than our mortgage and most of the schools we visited didn’t even offer the quality of education we were looking for. It was time for a career change. We started looking into childcare franchises and found Montessori Kids Universe. As a former Montessori preschool student, I knew the Montessori name and the quality of education that it provided. We met with MKU Franchising shortly thereafter and found that it was exactly what we were looking for. We committed to MKU and with their help we found our location, built our business plan and obtained funding with ease. We are so thankful to all of our staff and teachers dedication to their jobs and the families that call MKU Homewood their school and home. We look forward to a very bright future and are so blessed to be a part of the MKU family!”
