Celebree School, a frontrunner in early childhood education, is making waves in Boston as it donates $12,500 to the Boston Children’s Hospital, underscoring its commitment to community welfare. The renowned early childhood education franchise is poised to debut in the Boston market in 2025, setting the stage for a powerful combination of quality education and community outreach.

The donation, directed towards the Champions for Children’s Gala held on November 28, will contribute to Boston Children’s Every Child Fund. This fund plays a pivotal role in providing essential care and supporting groundbreaking research for children with rare and complex conditions. The gesture aligns with Celebree School’s core mission of nurturing children and families, showcasing a deep-rooted dedication to making a positive impact.

Richard Huffman, Founder and CEO of Celebree School, expressed the brand’s enthusiasm for the community giveback efforts, stating, “At Celebree, our commitment to nurturing children and their families runs deep. Being able to make this donation and impact families and their children aligns with our core mission and truly means the world to us.”

Celebree School is set to open its first Boston-area school in 2025, marking a significant milestone in its expansion journey. The franchise has been awarded to Nick and Nikki Foundas, a husband-wife duo with a combined four-decade career in HR and education. The Foundas family’s connection to the cause adds a poignant touch to the donation, as their youngest son, Nico, spent considerable time in the NICU after being born prematurely at 25 weeks.

The philanthropic effort is not just a one-time gesture; it reflects Celebree School’s broader commitment to community well-being. The Foundas family, deeply rooted in community efforts supporting the NICU, resonates with Celebree School’s values of family, community, and giving back.

Nick Foundas expressed their commitment, stating, “What we found with Celebree is a passionate, close-knit group of leaders and professionals who are committed to providing high-quality care, and we could not be more excited or proud to be part of this brand’s growth story – opening the first Boston-area Celebree School.”

The donation to Boston Children’s Hospital is a testament to Celebree School’s holistic approach, intertwining education with community impact. As the brand expands its footprint, it continues to embrace the values that set it apart — not just as an educational institution but as a caring community member.

In addition to the Foundas’ franchise opening, Celebree School is actively scouting for a corporate location, strategically positioning itself to support ongoing growth and enhance brand visibility. The corporate hub will play a crucial role in identifying prime areas for growth, contributing to recruitment, enrollment, and training as part of franchisee onboarding and opening.

The year 2023 has proven to be a landmark period for Celebree School, with 20 new franchisees joining the ranks, comprising 45 franchise and future development agreements. With 46 schools already open, 55 franchisees awarded over 100 sites, and a presence in 14 states, Celebree School is making significant strides in early childhood education.

Celebree School’s promise to “Grow People Big and Small™” underscores its belief that success in early childhood development is a blend of curriculum and a connection that extends beyond the classroom. Each Celebree School functions as a village, fostering an environment where parents, children, and educators collaborate, focusing on curriculum-based care that prepares children for kindergarten and beyond.

Programs cater to children aged six weeks to 12 years, with customized curriculums emphasizing positive social skills and values. Parents have the flexibility to choose part-time or full-time care, with open visitation policies. Celebree School’s commitment to providing exceptional early childhood education is backed by its 29-plus years of experience, making it an attractive choice for franchisees investing in a proven business model.

As Celebree School prepares to make its mark in Boston, the convergence of education, community support, and a proven franchise model positions it as a beacon of holistic growth in the realm of early childhood education. The brand’s unique blend of academic excellence and community engagement sets the stage for a transformative journey for both students and the communities they serve.
