Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2013
As the economic climate has changed and companies have downsized, Children of America Educational Childcare & Academy has continued to build schools, hire employees and expand its reach. With new construction under way in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York, Children of America CEO Thad Pryor said that while no business is recession-proof, his company has grown during the economic slump by using a new business model that allows for faster expansion efforts.
“Many sectors have downsized and people have lost their jobs,” Pryor explained. “But Children of America is growing. Job applicants today bring much to the table. We look forward to helping strengthen the fabric of communities, while hiring some of the most talented employees around.”
Pryor said he expects new child care facilities in Tewksbury, Mass., Parsippany, N.J., Doylestown, Penn., Queens and Port Jefferson Station, N.Y., to become flagship centers for Children of America.
The facility in Tewksbury is about 10,000 square feet and will ultimately employ 25 people. Parsippany is 11,100 square feet and the Port Jefferson Station facility is 12,500 square feet. Each of those centers could ultimately employ about 35 people.
According to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, there are more 4-year-olds enrolled in child care centers than those who have no regular non-parent care or are cared for by relatives or non-relatives in home-based settings.
“There are differences in the average quality of care children received in these settings,” a report from the National Center for Education Statistics states. “A higher percentage of children in … center-based programs (35 percent) received high-quality care than those in home-based relative and nonrelative care (9 percent), according to the ratings of trained observers.”
