  • 1989— Education Station Day Care Center (now Marigold Academy) was established in Bloomfield, NJ.
  • 2019— Our founders acquired the Bloomfield school after being inspired by their own children to create a high-quality early education program.
  • 2019 to 2021— The curriculum improved by adding new programs: science, foreign languages, and sign language. These programs also emphasize more on diversity and celebrate different cultures and values.
  • 2019 to 2021— Renovated the Bloomfield center to provide a healthy, safe, nurturing, and warm environment for children and staff.
  • 2020— During the COVID pandemic, like many schools, we were impacted due to state mandates. However, we continued to support our parents and children by holding virtual classes—so there was minimum disruption in the child’s growth and development. We reopened our center as soon as possible, quickly returning to full capacity.
  • 2021— Our founders acquired their second school, located in Randolph, NJ, and rebranded to Education Station.
  • 2022— Our founders realized a need for a high-quality childcare program in all communities that parents could rely on for a home away from home environment for their children.
  • 2023— Education Station was reborn as Marigold Academy. Marigold Academy was grown into a franchised school and ownership opportunities became available for the first time!
