Doodle Bugs! Children’s Centers — a leading early childhood education provider — recently opened the doors to its first Florida location.
The center is located off Hypoluxo Road between Military Trail and Haverhill Road. The Lake Worth school can accommodate 185 children, from infancy through age 12, and employs an experienced team of more than 30 that includes a center director and credentialed teachers.
Founded more than 20 years ago by siblings Anthony, Clarine and Anna Insinna, Doodle Bugs has remained family-owned and operated since its first center in East Amherst, N.Y. opened with 24 students. Today, the company operates more than 13 corporate and franchised locations and has expanded its “doodle community” to more than 2,000 families.
Parents are welcome to stop by Doodle Bugs in Lake Worth for tours of the new state-of-the-art facility, receive information about the center and meet the director, Amy Collins. A grand opening celebration is planned for Saturday, Aug. 16.
“Our mission has remained the same since our inception — to build a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers,” CEO Anthony Insinna said. “We’re excited to have officially opened our doors and be introducing families in and around South Florida to the ‘Doodle Differences.’ We look forward to becoming an integral part of the community while helping children reach their full potential.”
According to Insinna, the “Doodle Differences” include features such as the WatchMeGrow video surveillance system where enrolled families can securely view their child’s classroom online, allowing them to stay connected all day long. Additionally, Doodle Bugs provides breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks. Meals are prepared onsite.
The center, located at 4945 Via Bari off Hypoluxo Road in the Casa Brera community, will host its grand opening carnival on Saturday, Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Families can enjoy face painting, carnival-themed games and crafts, and a school bus food truck featuring gourmet hot dogs. Parents will have an opportunity to tour the new facility and speak with the director and faculty.
Doodle Bugs is education-based and teaches through its proprietary Bravo! Early Childhood Curriculum, which is focused on building the foundation of a child’s cognitive, social, physical and creative development.
By combining state-of-the-art facilities that feature pioneering curriculum, spacious classrooms, huge outdoor playgrounds, in-ground swimming pools and biometric security systems, Doodle Bugs is now meeting the growing demand for quality early education and child care programs in South Florida.
The Lake Worth center is currently accepting enrollment for children from six weeks to 12 years of age.
