Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Ivy Kids Systems franchise.

Ivy Kids Systems was founded in 2002 by Alnoor and Laila Bandali in Texas. Alnoor and Laila felt their community needed an early childhood education system that focused on more than just preparing children for kindergarten.

Ivy Kids Systems works to keep each location secure. Parents are also able to monitor their children through webcams set up throughout the facility.

Since beginning to franchise in 2016, Ivy Kids Systems has opened over 10 franchises in the United States.
