Behind 13 years of operations, insights, and validated success in our fully accredited model, MUSE Global Schools are designed to be both economically sustainable and supportive of attractive investor returns. On the heels of earning California FDD and franchise availability approval for its Early Childhood Education (ECE, ages 2-5) model, MUSE Global is proud to now offer ECE franchise opportunities throughout the state, including LA and Orange Counties, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and the Bay Area.
Mindful and Conscious Education
MUSE Global Schools was founded in Calabasas, California in 2006 by James and Suzy Amis Cameron along with Suzy’s sister, Rebecca Amis, who holds decades of experience in education administration. The trio started MUSE behind a clear, eco-friendly mission: “Inspiring and Preparing Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet.” After beginning as a pre-K/ECE school, MUSE rapidly expanded to accommodate students for grades 1-12.
MUSE promotes an educational approach that is supported by five concepts known as The Five Pillars: Passion Based Learning, Academics, Communication, Self-Efficacy and Sustainability. This holistic approach to education leverages students’ individual passions as vehicles for learning, creating an undeniably enthusiastic classroom environment that has been a resounding success with parents and students.
“I have a little boy who is three years old. He has been a part of the ECE program at MUSE for two years now and he loves it. It’s an amazing school surrounded by nature, sustainability, and passion-based learning. My son is thriving here,” says parent Hannah Ashby.
A Personalized Learning Setting
MUSE Schools’ personalized learning approach to ECE treats each child as an individual, with a preferred way to learn that will inspire them to the greatest results. The personalized lesson plan is created by collaboration between student and teacher, where the child has a voice and a choice.
Parent Amy Baker has been delighted with the results of the personalized learning experience for her child: “With our son, the individualized focus for him was an absolute game changer and fast forwarded his development in ways that we really weren’t educated enough to understand previously. Now we have a team of people, not just his parents, but his teachers and all of the administrative staff as well who all focus on how best to support him at MUSE.”
Thinking Outside the Classroom
Planet stewardship and sustainability principles are cornerstones of the MUSE philosophy, and ECE students are taught these concepts daily. Seed to Table classes, compost/recycling programs and plant-based menus are just a few ways that students are taught eco-awareness.
“Among our missions at MUSE is to teach our students to become compassionate sustainability natives,” says MUSE Global CEO Jeff King. “As one of the greenest schools in the United States, MUSE not only supports environmental stewardship—but also fosters critical thinking and spontaneous learning—enticing students to explore, create, discover and reflect.”
MUSE parents like Joshua Binder are impressed with how strongly these lessons are resonating with their children. “The school feeds all aspects of a person, and teaches children to be socially responsible — this plays a big role in our lives and our son’s life, and we love that he is making an impact on the Earth. We’ve all learned to be more conscious and less wasteful, and to be mindful of the products we use and reuse.”
Developing Clear Communicators
When MUSE receives feedback from parents of ECE students, a theme quickly emerges: parents are stunned by their children’s communication growth. Communication skills are taught to students through an innovative system known as the Process Communication Model (PCM). The PCM utilizes behavioral and observational approaches to help and motivate students to achieve productive communication styles and learn conflict management.
The results of the PCM are summarized perfectly by ECE parent Chrissy Bullard: “In the early childhood program at MUSE, children are more aware of communication with themselves and others. The program helps them to establish a sense of security within themselves and helps them to be more confident when speaking to others.”
An Intellectual Investment
When James and Suzy Amis Cameron partnered with Rebecca Amis to pioneer MUSE School, they shared a vision to transform the education landscape. But realizing this vision requires support from socially conscious investors, says Rebecca. “With 13 years of success at our Calabasas location, we have been asked time and time again to expand our disruptive and innovative education model. We are delighted to bring MUSE Schools to cities throughout California and are actively seeking like-minded partners who want to go on this adventure with us.”
