Anyone who decides to become a small business owner deserves a lot of credit. It takes vision, resources, and patience to do so, and franchise opportunities in the education sector require no less. But what’s the potential for profit in our industry?
It’s a fair question because, after all, making a living is the ultimate goal of small business owners, including Children’s Lighthouse franchisees. The good news is our opportunity takes advantage of an especially robust and recession-resistant industry. That said, your success will depend a lot on your engagement with it — and we’re here to help.
Our Industry Has Never Been More Needed
Parents have always relied on quality outside childcare to help them meet responsibilities away from home, but that need has become more so. Today, nearly 70% of young mothers participate in the workforce, requiring more families to seek outside care for their children, and as more households become dual-income, that number will rise. In fact, our industry has not only seen incredible growth but continues to be an important economic driver, with revenue of over $47B.
These statistics bode well for anyone who wants to take advantage of franchise opportunities in the education sector, particularly if they partner with a premier brand like Children’s Lighthouse.
Take Advantage of Our Franchise Opportunities and Become an Important Community Resource
While our industry is thriving, ultimately, your success as a Children’s Lighthouse franchisee will rest on how well you integrate your early learning center into your community and let it know about the important suite of services you have to offer. You’ll need to spearhead your efforts in many ways, but you can count on our help along the way!
The Children’s Lighthouse name has been a recognized one in the early education and childcare spheres for well over two decades. Parents know and trust us to be there for their children, and your preschool will benefit from our reputation for excellence. Our in-house marketing team also creates regular national and regional marketing campaigns that will put your franchise in front of your best customers.
These are just a few of the ways we support our franchisees. But your involvement in and vision for your business, combined with your understanding of your role in the community, will influence how quickly your early childhood education franchise sees growth. Furthermore, our most successful franchisees always:
- Prioritize the Children: making children the priority is at the heart of our offering, and it should be what motivates you every day, too. Your franchise is there to enrich their lives, and you should take pride in that.
- Listen to the Parents: mothers and fathers know their children and their families best. Parents will need you to listen to their needs, concerns, and feedback, and doing so will help to solidify your value in the community.
- Trust the Teachers: your staff is made up of professionals who have a solid understanding of childhood education and quality childcare. Trust them to do their jobs and give them the room to do so.
No franchisor can guarantee franchisee success. After all, success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It comes to those who see it in their futures and work hard to make it happen. We’ll help you see it and realize it every step of the way.
