It might be tempting to think you need prior industry experience to take advantage of a Children’s Lighthouse franchise opportunity, but the good news is, you don’t! That’s because our comprehensive franchise training and support prepares you to feel confident in your ability to leverage our proven business model and grow your franchise. Here, we’ll take a brief look at some of the high points of that training and support and why it adds such value to your investment.
Before Your School Opens
What good are our decades of experience in the childcare industry if we don’t share our knowledge with our franchisees? Our robust business model is an important competitive advantage, and we make sure our franchisees feel prepared to utilize it to the fullest.
Before your school doors open, you’ll spend four weeks with us, at both our corporate headquarters and in an on-site setting, to learn all about the daily operation of your school. We’ll dive into how to teach our proprietary curriculum, how to find, train and keep qualified staff, how to set growth goals and market your school to reach your best customer, and much, much more. You’ll also have access to our proprietary Operations Manual, a comprehensive resource that contains important information about our policies and procedures that you can rely on any time to keep you on track and informed.
Our Ongoing Training and Support
Our guidance doesn’t end after your franchise is up and running — in fact, in a lot of ways, it becomes more thorough and important. A new Children’s Lighthouse school is like many other new businesses, full of promise and potential that will never be met if it’s not nurtured and cared for. You’ll be ready to start your school thanks to our training; you’ll also be able to take it to the next level, thanks to our ongoing support!
So, what does that support look like? To begin with, 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 make sure all your questions are answered and you’re maximizing everything you’ve learned. After that, you’ll enjoy quarterly visits from a franchise consultant whose job it is to help you set and reach goals and keep you up to speed on best practices. We also always make ourselves available by phone or email to hear your concerns or just listen to valuable feedback. You can also count on us for robust marketing, ongoing research and development, and networking opportunities to keep you abreast of industry trends and competitive advantages.
We know the success of the Children’s Lighthouse brand depends very much on the growth of our franchisees’ businesses, and we’re there to help them enjoy that every step of the way!
