How to Open a Preschool Franchise with a Leading Brand

How to Open a Preschool Franchise with Children’s Lighthouse

Starting a small business from scratch involves numerous steps, some of them simple, others less so. If you’re wondering how to open a preschool franchise, you’ll be happy to know that partnering with Children’s Lighthouse will mean a straightforward franchise process that includes our guidance at every turn. But it all begins with your due diligence, and once you’ve done that, we’re confident you’ll come away appreciating our brand advantages. Let’s take a closer look at some of the steps you’ll take toward opening an early childhood education franchise with us.

Do Some Research into Your Franchise Opportunities

If you’ve decided you’d like to become part of the robust and recession-resistant early learning industry, we think you’ve made a very smart choice — especially if you do so as part of a franchise brand. But it’s important to compare your options because there is any number of preschool brands with which you might align. So, what should you look for?

First and foremost, you should look for a commitment to the children in the way of a curriculum that makes a difference and an environment that encourages exploration and growth. These are hallmarks of the Children’s Lighthouse brand. Our proprietary Lighthouse Pathways™ approach features age-appropriate curriculums that not only cater to the unique strengths and needs of each child, but that will be at the heart of your success. You’ll be able to cater to three distinct age groups — infants and toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children —providing them with access to quality care and education in a rich learning environment.

You also want to look for a brand that has demonstrated longevity, recognition, and respect. Again, these are all qualities of the Children’s Lighthouse brand. We’ve been meeting the needs of parents and children since 1997, with a refined business model that takes full advantage of a recession-resistant industry. Families trust us to deliver premium care and early education, and each of our franchisees quickly becomes a valued resource in their communities. When you open a Children’s Lighthouse preschool, you’ll enjoy this distinction, too.

Connect with Us to Learn More About Opening a Preschool Franchise

Once you’ve done your homework and realized what an exceptional opportunity a Children’s Lighthouse investment is, you’ll begin the process of connecting with us to learn more about our offering. You’ll share important information about yourself, including your goals, background, and financial qualifications, while we provide you with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document that goes over every aspect of our brand.

You’ll also enjoy a Discovery Day at our corporate headquarters, where you’ll meet with our entire executive team and learn more about the unique Children’s Lighthouse culture. You’ll have the chance to ask any additional questions and share more details about yourself and your goals. A Discovery Day is the occasion for both of us to make a final decision about whether you’ll join our brand, and if both parties agree, you’ll pay your franchise fee and sign your franchise agreement. Your signature makes it official — you are now part of the Children’s Lighthouse brand family!

Enjoy Our Support After You’ve Opened Your Preschool Center Franchise

We know our success as a brand is contingent on that of our franchisees, so we don’t leave that up to chance. Our pre-opening training prepares you for all the day-to-day aspects of running your preschool, and our ongoing support includes robust regional marketing on your behalf, access to our Operations Manual, and important networking opportunities, among many other resources. In short, a Children’s Lighthouse opportunity means you’ll be in business for yourself, never by yourself.
