Learning Care Group, Inc. Recognized Again as a US Best Managed Company

Novi, MI, May 10, 2023 — Learning Care Group, Inc. is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2023 US Best Managed Company. Sponsored by Deloitte* Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their management teams.

The 2023 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic culture, as well as strong financials. Designees propelled their businesses forward and remained true to their purpose and values by investing in their people, creating advantage through digital transformation, taking measurable action on sustainability, and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Learning Care Group is honored to be recognized as a US Best Managed Company for the fourth consecutive year,” said Mark Bierley, CEO, Learning Care Group. “As a family of brands that spans over 1075 schools across the US, this achievement can only be attributed to our tremendous team of employees, from the classroom to our support central offices, who work, day in and day out, to provide a safe, nurturing learning environment and inspire a lifelong love of learning for all of the children in our care.”

Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges focused on assessing hallmarks of excellence in four key areas: strategy, ability to execute, corporate culture and governance/financial performance. They join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 46 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program.
