You’ve heard it before — location is everything in house-hunting and in business. Small business owners have a lot to think about when they first get started, and when it comes to our preschool franchise opportunity, one of the most important considerations you’ll need to make is where to locate your school.

Our team knows how to single out an optimal site, and right now, we have numerous available territories ready for development.
But what should you look for in the right franchise school location? What considerations need to be made, and how will we help you narrow down your choices so you can feel good about where you’ve opened your Children’s Lighthouse preschool? Keep reading to find out.
Because your Children’s Lighthouse franchise school will be catering to a very specific demographic—parents with young children—it goes without saying that any community you set your franchise up in must include this demographic. But how will you know if it does?
Well, we’ll help you find out. We use sophisticated software and technology to find and analyze demographic data, which includes the number of families in an area, what the average income is, what the growth trends are, and more. This kind of information is essential to determining where your new Children’s Lighthouse school should be located, and our real estate team is made up of experts who know how to gather and interpret important data that will help you decide.
What Else Is Important?
While it’s true that an area’s demographic is probably the most important consideration to make when choosing a location for your Children’s Lighthouse preschool, there are other factors to weigh as well. Our real estate team has years of experience pinpointing the best areas for our schools. Together with you, they will take into account things like:
- Traffic patterns
- Available parking
- Nearby Businesses
- And more
One of the most important reasons why we pay close attention to the visibility of your school is that it will feature unique and memorable architecture that stands out and hints at a warm and inviting interior. Our lighthouse towers and stone facades are signature and memorable elements of our schools, so we make sure they’re seen, building new franchises in visible and easy-to-reach locations. Parents will feel good about dropping their children off at your school’s front door, knowing its exterior reflects a safe and loving interior environment.
When it’s all said and done, ours is a thorough and collaborative site selection process that will establish you in an area that’s protected and not in competition with other Children’s Lighthouse early childhood schools. You’ll also receive a prototype design of your new school to ensure it meets our standards for square footage, lighting, and more. We work hard to take the stress out of building your new school so you can focus on getting ready to become an important resource in your community.
