We are meeting with CEO & Founder of Celebree School, Richie Huffman.  Since 1994, Celebree Schools has been caring for and positively impacting the lives of children in Maryland and Delaware. Today, their day care history is taking a big next step to supporting children and their parents in more locations and in more mid-Atlantic states.

Every business has a story

  • Richie was a straight D student in high school and knew college was unlikely, so he shifted his attention on business. It was through various grueling jobs in bakeries, real estate, and retail that he learned the value of hard work and its and payoff – many of the early lessons learned, he applies as a leader today.
  • He was inspired to pursue entrepreneurship by his mother, “Betty,” who launched a preschool center that expanded into three locations under the name White Marsh Child Care, where Richie would sweep the floors up at the end of the day.
  • Fast forward ten years later, he opened his first preschool in 1994 at the ripe age of 26 – this was the start of what would become Celebree School.
  • Over the course of more than two decades, Richie grew Celebree from a single location into Maryland’s largest privately held chain of child care centers that is now franchising nationwide.
