Being a small business owner is an extremely rewarding experience, especially if you can work in a meaningful industry like early education and childcare. If you’ve decided you’d like to become part of that industry, you’ll be pleased to know that when it comes to how to open a childcare franchise, ours is a straightforward and transparent process. Furthermore, once your new Children’s Lighthouse early learning center is up and running, you’ll find your investment will come with numerous perks. Here, we’ll look at three of them.
#1 Enjoy a Better Work/Life Balance
It’s a fact of modern life: People often struggle to balance professional and personal responsibilities, often finding themselves stressed by trying to meet the demands of both. But many Children’s Lighthouse franchisees discover a real way to carve out a better work/life balance, one that leaves them with more time for family, friends, hobbies, vacations, and more. That better balance can happen for you, too. You’ll be overseeing operations at an executive level, giving you the freedom to determine your own schedule and delegate tasks to your school director and staff. You’ll still be very involved, of course, especially as you first start out, but in time you just might find the kind of balanced lifestyle and flexibility you’ve always wanted.
#2 Take Advantage of a Franchise Opportunity in a Robust Industry
Today, the number of families looking for outside help to take care of their youngest members is rising. On average, today’s parents spend over $8,000 per child per year on childcare — and many of these parents want high-quality care that’s delivered in a structured, stimulating, and loving environment that embraces their child’s uniqueness. Your Children’s Lighthouse franchise will be just such an environment.
Best of all, by taking advantage of our franchise opportunity, you’ll be able to meet the distinct educational needs of your community in three ways that represent three revenue streams:
- Infant & Toddler: 6 weeks to 24 months
- Preschool: 2 to 5 years
- School Age: Kindergarten through 12
Being able to offer communities a broad range of age-specific educational opportunities means you’ll quickly become a go-to source for the kind of quality childcare families want and need.
#3 Enjoy Our Support
One of the most important perks of owning a school under the Children’s Lighthouse name is that you’ll be in business for yourself but not by yourself. With over 25 years of industry experience to share, we make sure you receive comprehensive training and support for the life of your franchise that not only puts you on the path toward success but keeps you there. From our proprietary curriculum to our national marketing efforts to our time-tested business model and expert franchise team, we offer valuable support to facilitate every aspect of running your early learning center.
