The Growing Room Way
The seed of Growing Room sprouted deep in the heart of pediatric nurse Sheree Mitchell. As a working mother, she was frustrated with the lack of quality childcare available for her son; she believed all children deserved more than just basic daycare.
In her mind, the ideal learning environment would be colorful, welcoming and spark a child’s imagination as soon as they entered. The school would be secure, so parents wouldn’t worry about their child’s safety. There would be good health practices in place to minimize exposure to illness and all children would be treated with dignity and respect. The school would offer developmentally appropriate curriculum for all ages, beginning with infants, and would instill strong character traits and good citizenship. In short, it would give them a foundation for a lifelong love of learning that would lead to success in life.
Holding fast to her dream of creating this education-focused setting for preschoolers, Sheree and her husband opened their first Growing Room in 1989. Families quickly responded and soon she was hearing stories of their children’s success. Teachers told her they could tell the difference with Growing Room children – they were well prepared for Kindergarten! Little did Sheree know that the success of these children and their families would also lead to Sheree to being named Georgia Small Business Person of the Year, and later U.S. Small Business Person of the Year.
With those awards, a new seed was planted – Growing Room Franchise System, Inc, which Sheree launched in 2007. There are now 12 Growing Room childcare centers in four states, and growing!
