Our Mission & Vision
There’s nothing more important to a parent than the wellbeing of their child. That’s why we treat each child as if they were our own, warmly interacting and engaging with them when they’re in our care.
Leaving your child under someone else’s supervision can be nerve-wracking. But at Giggles, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your child is in a warm, comfortable environment that invites them to be themselves, and have a whole lot of fun.

” We started Giggles out of our own need for flexible, reliable and safe childcare. I remember the struggle we had with finding a babysitter when our son was very little and it was definitely a daunting experience to say the least.”Zach & Michelle Richards
What Franchise Owners are Saying
"We became involved with Giggles Drop-In Childcare after running into an issue of not having adequate childcare on a family trip to Wilmington, NC. After doing a lot of research about the possibility of owning our own franchise, we became convinced we had to bring this to concept to Greenville South Carolina. After meeting Zach and Michelle, we knew our futures would be linked together going forward. They helped us every step of the way and it has become such a tremendous success we just broke ground on our 2nd Giggles location."The Kimball's
"We became part of the Giggles family as clients before franchise owners. When our son was about 16 months old we visited the original Giggles in Wilmington. He loved it! He made some instant friends and wanted to go back often. Before we knew it, we were on a membership and both we and our son were super happy with the arrangement. Years later, my husband and I were getting out of another business venture and Michelle (Giggles Co-Founder) mentioned that we would be perfect candidates to be the first Giggles franchisee. We decided the business model was a successful one, and we would love to offer other families the freedom and peace of mind that this service had offered our family. We opened the Giggles of Cary in September 2013!"The Durand's
"I started working at the flagship Giggles in Wilmington North Carolina in 2010. I was promoted to a director position and eventually wanted to own my own Giggles.
That dream came true in May of 2017 when the Giggles in Jacksonville, NC opened! I am so thrilled to be doing this!"The Weber's
