After weathering through the pandemic, Karen Beninati’s WeVillage childcare company plans to expand in early 2022.

WeVillage, the revolutionary childcare company, announced today plans to open a 4th location in the Greater Los Angeles Area in the first quarter of 2022. Karen Beninati started WeVillage in 2010 after a frustrating search for the perfect childcare option for her toddler son. Realizing that all the existing alternatives offered inflexible schedules, unappealing physical spaces and not enough enrichment, Beninati set out to break the mold of traditional childcare and WeVillage was born.

Today, WeVillage operates 3 locations, two in the Portland area and one in Los Angeles. Each location was thoughtfully designed for children by professionals, with the goal of stimulating imagination and creativity. At the cornerstone of the WeVillage model is flexibility without sacrificing quality. “We know that no two families are alike, and that’s why we offer both structured and flexible options for parents,” says owner Karen Beninati. “Regardless of whether you are doing our drop-in flexible options or a full-time schedule, your child is going to benefit from our best-in-class curriculum for their age.”

WeVillage, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, is no stranger to the spotlight. Frequently featured in magazines and news segments, the locations are also popular with many celebrities. Beninati says that weathering the pandemic was challenging, but is proud to report all her staff are still with the company, and they are again operating at capacity with safety as the primary concern. The company is proud to be mandating the vaccine for all staff and to report a 100% vaccination status.

Beninati, a former film producer, has been recognized numerous times for her inspirational story as the founder and CEO of WeVillage and a role model for female entrepreneurs around the world. While details are still emerging, it is confirmed that the new location will be in the greater Los Angeles area. “Having weathered the storm of the pandemic, we really feel like we have almost rebuilt WeVillage,” said Beninati. “And we’ve come back stronger and better than ever. Our teachers and staff are so excited to share our new curriculums and spaces with children again.”
