Today, the early childhood education industry is meeting the needs of more and more families across the country, making now an exceptional time to take advantage of our preschool franchise opportunity. But don’t worry about coming to it with no previous industry experience; our comprehensive preopening training and ongoing Franchise Support Center guidance means just about anyone can leverage our business model to thrive as a Children’s Lighthouse franchisee. We know how important it is to start out on solid footing, and our commitment to your success means you’ll be in business for yourself, never by yourself.
It Starts with Careful Attention to Training
We’ve spent decades defining and refining a business model that features a proprietary curriculum, industry-leading processes and procedures, and plenty of room for individual growth goals. It has an answer for just about everything and will take a lot of the trial and error out of the day-to-day operations of your childcare center.
The fact is, a franchise brand is only as good as its business model and only as successful as each and every one of its franchisees, so we make sure the former is explained thoroughly to the latter, through training programs that immerse you in the Children’s Lighthouse culture, curriculum, and model. These programs are conducted under the supervision of Shelly Pair, our Vice President of Operations, who has 26 years of experience in our industry. With her team’s expertise as your guidance, you’ll learn all about:
- The value of our proprietary curriculum and how to teach it
- How to market your school to reach your best customer
- Why growth goals are important and how to set them
- How to find, train and keep the qualified staff you’ll need to grow
- Our important vendor relationships and how to leverage them
- How to engage and involve parents while supporting them
- How to set and hit financial benchmarks
- And so much more!
As part of our franchise opportunity, you’ll also have access to our proprietary Lighthouse Links network, which houses marketing materials, curriculum and training guidance as well as our 162-page Operations Manual that goes over just about every detail of running your preschool, a valuable resource you can turn to anytime and at your own pace.
We’re Here for the Life of Your Business!
Our support of you doesn’t end once your preschool doors open — in fact, in many ways, it becomes more comprehensive. We have a team of Franchise Business Coaches at the ready, one of whom will help you through the opening process. They are there to conduct more training as needed and will answer any questions you may have, ensuring all your preparation has set you up for success. From there, you’ll enjoy multiple on-site visits per year to help you set and reach goals, assist you with classroom management strategies, and keep you up to speed on best practices. We have decades of experience and have helped dozens of franchisees begin exciting and rewarding careers as early childhood educators. We’d love for you to become one of them!
