Buying a Daycare Franchise? Why You Should Consider Discovery Point
If you’re considering buying a daycare franchise, you’ve likely thought about how being the owner of a child care center can enable you to do fulfilling work while giving back to your local community. Whether or not you have previous experience in this industry, you can use your skills and strengths to provide an optimal space for children to learn, grow, and play.
Additionally, there are many other reasons why entrepreneurs often consider buying a daycare franchise. Not only is child care one of the strongest industries in the country, but its rate of growth is also exceptional. With well over half of mothers with young children working outside the home, roughly 12.5 million American children currently require child care. Because the need for reliable child care solutions is so great, revenue for this industry is expected to hit $52.5 billion by the year 2021.
Benefits of Buying a Daycare Franchise through Discovery Point
Even in an industry that’s so dynamic, not all franchise purchases lead to the operation of a successful business. It’s important to choose a franchise you can trust to help you run a child care center that not only promotes the educational development of children but also brings numerous benefits to your personal and professional life.
When you choose Discovery Point, you can have confidence that you’re embarking on a business endeavor with a proven success rate. Read below to learn more about the advantages of purchasing one of our child care franchises.
A Simplified Process for Getting Started
Our business model makes it easy to start a thriving educational child care center. We offer turnkey packages that make the process from commitment to opening easy. From constructing a facility to getting licensed and hiring qualified staff members to outfitting your center, our package covers every detail.
Intensive Training for New Owners
At Discovery Point, franchisees undergo four weeks of in-depth training in person. We’ll start with classroom tutorials that provide an introduction to and extensive training in all the systems you will use as a Discovery Point owner. Our support then transitions to onsite training and instruction at our child care centers to ensure that you’re ready to put everything you’ve learned into practice.
Ongoing Corporate Support
We work in partnership with our franchisees to help them market and develop their child care centers, ensuring common pitfalls and hurdles on the path towards business success are avoided. In addition, we offer support with ongoing Quality Assurance so you can maintain both the high standards expected of Discovery Point centers and the requirements of local licensing authorities.
Use of Our Outstanding Curriculum
As a Discovery Point owner, you’ll have access to our proprietary Discovery Point Connections® curriculum, which focuses on literature and language to help children develop a lifelong love of learning. Our child care centers also work with the Creative Curriculum® series from Teaching Strategies, which is nationally recognized for its emphasis on incorporating creative play into the learning process.
An Excellent Return on Your Investment
Our franchisees have the option to own the site where their child care center is located, meaning your franchise can also act as a real estate investment. This furthers your initial investment and allows you to enjoy investment security as well as long-term equity. And since we utilize a flat fee system (rather than basing fees on a percentage of your sales) you can hold onto a greater portion of your business’s profits.
A Brand with Proven Success
Discovery Point has been a successful child care brand for over thirty years, boasting a reputation and level of experience that is rarely matched. The result is that our franchisees are able to benefit from positive brand recognition, robust corporate support, and our extensive experience within the industry. With a track record like this, it’s no wonder Discovery Point owners consistently grow their child care centers into successful businesses and rave about being part of our family of entreprenuers!
