The new owner, Alex Bhakta, has more than 15 years of experience in the hotel and franchising industry, having worked for his family’s hotel franchise in Houston, where he learned about the benefits of owning a proven business model.

“A friend of mine had recently enrolled their child at a Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy, and aside from its award-winning curriculum, I was very impressed by the number of safety measures and technology in place to ensure the safety of every student,” said Bhakta. “Kids 'R' Kids does a fantastic job of being transparent and communicating effectively with parents, which is crucial for those who depend on childcare outside of the home.”

For the last 30 years, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy has upheld its long-standing principle of strengthening and encouraging childhood development on an emotional, intellectual, social and physical level through a unique partnership between its child care providers and parents. The company’s proprietary First Class Curriculum™ is designed specifically for every developmental stage of education with theme-based units, specific learning activities and teacher-friendly lesson plans. Last year, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy unveiled its new STEAM AHEAD™ curriculum, an integrated project-based curriculum for preschool students, ages three to five, which incorporates more science, technology, engineering, art, and math into everyday learning through play.

With a nationally awarded curriculum, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of West McKinney provides early education and care for children from six weeks through 12 years of age at its nearly 160 schools located in 16 states across the country.
