Experienced franchisee owners know how important it is to wisely choose the industry they wish to become part of; it can mean the difference between failure and success. But it’s not just important to pick the right field – if you’re thinking of becoming a franchise owner in the early childhood education industry, it’s essential to align with the right brand, and Children’s Lighthouse is it.
We’ve been leaders in the early education industry for over 25 years, and in that time, we’ve helped thousands of families meet their children’s needs in ways the competition simply can’t match. Our approach has allowed us to become a premier franchise investment, and here we’ll take a look at just what sets us apart in a highly competitive field.
A Recession-Resistant Industry
When you partner with Children’s Lighthouse to open your franchise, you’ll become part of an industry that is serving more and more people every day. In fact, it’s one of the most recession-resistant sectors in the economy. But why is that?
Well, more and more parents are willing to make room in their budgets to pay for early education and childcare, despite what the economy may be doing, partly because studies have shown that investing in high-quality early childhood education has numerous benefits for children and society. Additionally, more parents today depend on outside childcare, making the childcare and early education industries resilient. This kind of market stability is not something you see in most industries and can mean real bottom-line growth for your portfolio.
A Robust Franchise Business Model
Of course, trying to make the most of a recession-resistant industry depends heavily on the business model that you’re following. The right model makes all the difference in the world because the better ones act as a road map for business owners to follow, allowing them to navigate the rewards and challenges of their field. The Children’s Lighthouse business model has been crafted over decades to include time-tested processes and procedures that will allow you to run your preschool efficiently and profitably.
In fact, our model goes well beyond providing safe and loving childcare. An important educational component highlights it, our Lighthouse Pathways™ approach to learning, which will position you as an industry leader and make you the first choice in your community for quality childcare and early education. Our proprietary materials feature three age-appropriate curriculums, including Lighthouse BRIGHT™ (Infants & Toddlers), Lighthouse CARES™ (Preschool), and xSTREAM Quest® (School-Age®), each uniquely designed to engage children and maximize children’s full potential.
Guidance at Every Turn
You might think you need prior experience to become part of the early childhood education industry, but when you partner with Children’s Lighthouse, that’s not the case. That’s because we make sure all our franchisees enjoy pre-opening training and support that covers everything needed to leverage our time-tested business model.
Before your preschool doors open, we’ll go over important topics like how to teach our curriculum, how to find and hire qualified staff, how to engage with your community, and much more. You can also look forward to ongoing perks, like our expert in-house marketing, access to important industry relationships, and networking opportunities. Best of all, because communities have turned to Children’s Lighthouse for quality care and education for over 25 years, we’re a leader in our industry and a name parents trust, making the establishment of your franchise that much easier!
