The Whole Child Learning Company Franchise

Educational enrichment programs for young children

Noticing a lack of quality computer education programs for children, husband and wife Matt and Lindsay Barron founded The Whole Child Learning Co. in San Marcos, Texas, in 1996. Combining Lindsay's teaching experience with Matt's sales and marketing experience, they sold their computer education service to preschools, day-care centers and after-school programs.

In 1997, they changed the company's name to The Whole Child Learning Co. to reflect its expanded curriculum, including martial arts and physical movement classes. The company began franchising in 1999.
