What Does the Childcare Franchise Industry Look Like and Where Do We Fit In?

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding responsibilities a person can have, and at Children’s Lighthouse, we take pride in our safe and nurturing preschool facilities that offer children a chance to grow. The childcare franchise industry is an important and robust one that meets the needs of millions of families every year. In fact, the childcare industry is an important economic driver throughout the country, generating revenue of over $47bn and employing 1.5 million individuals. When you partner with Children’s Lighthouse you’ll be doing so with a leader in a recession-resistant industry, one that more and more parents turn to every year.

Why Children’s Lighthouse?

As more households become dual incomed, the number of families looking for outside help to take care of their youngest members is rising. On average, today’s parents spend over $8,000 per child per year on child care — and many of these parents don’t just want a neighborhood babysitter. They want quality child care delivered in a structured, stimulating, and caring environment that can be trusted to embrace their child’s individuality and unique needs.

These are the exact attributes that define the Children’s Lighthouse brand. Our founders, brothers Mike and Pat Brown, opened the very first Children’s Lighthouse center over 25 years ago, and today, our emphasis on quality care has made us a leader in the childcare industry.

Our Proven Business Model

We’ve taken our decades of experience to create and refine a business model that lays the groundwork for your success and includes time-tested systems and procedures that take a lot of the guesswork out of running your preschool. At the heart of our model is our proprietary curriculum, our Lighthouse Pathways™ approach to learning that incorporates our years of expertise and research to help children reach their full potential.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to use our proven systems and procedures to build your franchise in an exclusive territory that is never in competition with other Children’s Lighthouse franchise partners. Our smaller schools leave better choices for real estate — options you’ll go over with the help and guidance of our site experts — and that can mean more room for growth!

Multiple Revenue Streams

As a Children’s Lighthouse franchisee, you’ll benefit from three revenue streams that meet three distinct educational needs:

  • Infant & Toddler: 6 weeks to 24 months
  • Preschool: ages 2 to 5
  • School Age: K through 12

Being able to offer communities a broad range of age-specific educational opportunities means you’ll quickly become a go-to source for the kind of quality child care families want and that children need. No matter what a child’s age, you’ll be there for them, and that can go a very long way toward growing your business!

These are just a few of the reasons why Children’s Lighthouse is a standout opportunity in the childcare franchise industry. To find out more about how you can become part of it, get in touch today!
