Officials with The Learning Experience child care franchise announced six new locations are coming to the Houston region, including one in the Cy-Fair area at 8630 Jones Road, Jersey Village.

The center will serve around 180 children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old and staff about 30 employees, according to a press release.

Slated to open in the third quarter of 2024, the project scope includes a new 10,000-square-foot facility and an outdoor playground.

The Learning Experience, a Florida-based franchise, operates more than 340 centers across 28 states.

“We do all of the groundwork and set up franchisees for success as an independent franchise business owner,” Senior Vice President Stephanie Retherford said in a statement. “Our real estate team pinpoints the best location and works with developers to build, equip and set up the center. And we provide world-class training and ongoing operational support for franchisees to successfully run their business while making a positive difference in the lives of children and families in their community.”
