“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!”

“After staying home and raising our children for 7 years, Jordan was ready to re-enter the workforce. We began seeking quality childcare for our children and were faced with the stark reality of the childcare crisis in our community. Brad had also been toiling away at high stress career in Agriculture for several years and was looking for a change that was more family friendly. After months of weighing our options, we decided WE were going to do something about it. Due to our lack of experience, we began researching childcare franchises. After talking to various companies, MKU was the obvious choice. It is truly a family run company that provides top notch support and expertise. Through funding, design, licensing, hiring, and opening they were right alongside of us every step of the way. Taking a chance on ourselves and on MKU was the best decision we have ever made for the security and freedom of our family! For anyone looking for a career change or just looking to start something special for their community, we can’t recommend Montessori Kids Universe enough!”
