Fast-growing childcare franchise business The Learning Experience announced it is opening nine new locations in the Central Florida market over the next two years, adding to the seven locations currently open and operating across the region.
Headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Florida, The Learning Experience is the top-ranked childcare franchise and No. 43 overall in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2023 ranking of the world’s top 500 franchises. New locations coming to the Orlando area and opening timelines include:
- Viera at 6106 Breslay Dr. this quarter

Each location will consist of a newly built 10,000-square-foot center and up to a 5,000-square-foot outdoor playground. All the new centers will employ around 30 local staff members and certified teachers to serve upwards of 180 kids from 6 weeks old to 6 years old with childcare, enrichment programs, and early childhood education.
In the last two years, The Learning Experience has opened more than 80 new locations across the country, bringing its total to over 340 units operating in 28 states. Over the next two years, it plans to open more than 75 new locations in strategically chosen markets nationwide.
When determining target markets for expansion, The Learning Experience’s real estate team carefully reviews, analyzes, and identifies specific areas with an influx of young families and a growing need for local options and access to high-quality childcare and early education.
“We do all of the groundwork and set up franchisees for success as an independent franchise business owner,” said Jennifer Murray, a senior vice president with The Learning Experience. “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.”
