National private education provider acquires premier preschool group with 16 schools in Texas
Nobel Learning Communities, Inc., a leading operator of private schools, including preschools, K-8 and high schools, has announced that it has acquired all 16 Xplor early learning centers.
Xplor is a leading infant through pre-kindergarten education provider, delivering well-rounded programs that meet the intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs of each child. There are nine Xplor centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, five in Austin and two in Houston. Each Xplor location provides a state-of-the-art early learning environment in approximately 15,000-square-foot buildings.
“We are very pleased to add Xplor to our family of schools. Nobel Learning Communities and Xplor share a commitment to providing a strong curriculum and a nurturing environment for preschool and school-age children. Our companies’ educational philosophies are similar, and Xplor is an exceptional school operator. This acquisition will complement our existing portfolio of nine schools in Texas. We look forward to sharing best practices of both organizations while working side by side, focusing on quality education in the state of Texas,” said George H. Bernstein, President and CEO of Nobel Learning Communities.
“The acquisition of Xplor is an important step in our growth plan, by serving as a strong entry into the Austin market, and building a greater presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston markets. We expect that Xplor will provide us a platform to build additional preschools that will expand our ability to serve families in Texas.”
“We are also very pleased that Xplor management, teachers and staff will become part of the Nobel Learning team and will continue to provide strong leadership for Xplor’s operations and programs. Parents and students will continue to experience the same high quality programs and curriculum, which will now be supplemented with additional educational and programmatic resources brought by Nobel Learning Communities.”
