It is because we know childcare that we have had a long history of success. Our founders, Billie and Duane McCabe opened their first school in Independence, Missouri in 1970. Their unique vision was quickly embraced as they expanded and operated up to 45 childcare centers in seven states. During the last ten years, most of the smaller schools located in converted houses were sold so the company could concentrate on larger, innovative, custom designed school environments with licensed capacities of 190 to 250 children featuring our Exploratorium®.
The Perfect Balance Between A Family-Run Small Business And A Growing Franchise System
The Creative World School® tradition bridges generations as their daughters joined the company. Their youngest daughter, Dr. Marianne Whitehouse, combines the experience of being a Creative World School® graduate with a Ph.D. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in her position as President. This dynamic family team began franchising in 1999 and there are currently 22 Creative World Schools in 5 states and growing.
This past year, over 4,000 families chose Creative World School® to educate and care for their young children. We are looking for committed individuals that share our vision to continue our story into the future.
