An Investment Guide to Franchising a Daycare Center

If you love working with children and have been in the childcare industry for any amount of time, you’re probably looking into a daycare center franchise opportunity. And you would be wise to do so!

Experts estimate that there will be a 6.9 percent increase in childcare jobs between 2016 and 2026. This industry continues to grow so child care franchises not only provide stability but also the ability to expand to multiple locations.

Child care is rewarding as well as a great way to support your local community. Almost ready to make the leap? Here are a number of reasons why investing in a daycare franchise like Ducklings Early Learning Center makes financial sense.

Find the right franchisor

You’ll want to partner with a well-established brand and a track record of success. Look into their support offerings, such as financing and marketing. This way you’ll know how much of your grand opening you’ll be taking on alone.

Assemble the funds 

Considering 75% of young children in the US are participating in a preschool program, the demand for high-quality early education and care has never been higher. Child care franchise opportunities are a wise investment.
