Becoming a small business owner requires a commitment in time, energy, and resources, and a Children’s Lighthouse franchise opportunity is no different. The good news is because we’ve helped so many investors become our franchisees, we know what to expect when it comes to the numbers of franchise investment.  


Here, we’ll take a brief look into our franchise investment and all it gets you, including how it factors in just about everything you’ll need to get your Children’s Lighthouse school up and running and ready to serve your community. We’re confident you’ll come away appreciating its value.

Our Franchise Investment Is Comprehensive

Becoming part of the Children’s Lighthouse brand requires that you pay certain fees, both one-time and ongoing. Below is a breakdown of some investment numbers: 

  •  Franchise Fee: $75K
  • Royalty: 7% of your gross sales
  • Total Initial Investment: $4,270,225 – $6,314,588

We’ll also ask that you show the kind of financial security that will allow you to worry less about unforeseen expenses and focus more on growth. To that end, we require that you demonstrate liquid capital of +/- $700K and a net worth of +/- $1M.

 You should also factor in other monthly expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, payroll, classroom and food supplies, and insurance.
