Providing high-quality childcare and giving children the opportunity to learn and grow in a loving and safe school environment are arguably two of the most important responsibilities a person can take on. That’s why we make sure all our school owners see expert pre-opening franchise training and ongoing franchise support to prepare them for the rewards of our industry. Our guidance means just about anyone who is financially qualified can take advantage of our offering without the need for prior early education experience. Keep reading to find out more about how we prepare and support our franchisees.
Mastering Our Franchise Business Model
We’ve used our decades of industry experience to create and refine a business model that features a proprietary curriculum and expert marketing — just two of the many value propositions that separate Children’s Lighthouse from the competition. Our robust business model takes the guesswork out of things and is an important advantage, so we make sure our franchisees are ready to utilize it from day one.
Before your franchise doors open, you’ll spend four weeks at both our corporate headquarters and in an on-site setting to learn everything you’ll need to know about the day-to-day operation of your school, including:
- How to teach our proprietary curriculum
- How to find, train, and keep qualified staff
- How to market your school to your community
- How to meaningfully engage with parents
- How to set and measure growth goals
- And much more!
As part of your franchise owner training, you’ll also have access to our Operations Manual, a comprehensive resource that contains important information about our policies and procedures that you can rely on at any time to keep you on track toward growth.
Ongoing Guidance, Support, and Opportunities
Like most new businesses, a Children’s Lighthouse school is full of potential that must be nurtured — and it is, thanks to our comprehensive support. It prepares you to grow your school in ways that will make you a much-appreciated resource to your community.
You’ll enjoy regular guidance from members of our team, which includes a visit by one of our franchise experts shortly after you open, who’ll ensure all your questions are answered and you’re maximizing everything you’ve learned. From there, you can count on quarterly visits from a franchise consultant whose job it is to help you set and reach goals and keep you abreast of best practices.
Furthermore, we know how vital it is to keep the channels of communication open, so we make sure we’re available by phone or email to listen to your concerns or take in your valuable feedback. Our expert marketing, ongoing research and development, and networking opportunities round out the comprehensive support you can look forward to as a Children’s Lighthouse franchisee.
