Why a Daycare Franchise for Sale is a Good Investment

As the child care industry has shown exceptional growth over the past five years, it’s a great time to begin looking into opening a child care business. One of the most efficient ways to join this thriving industry is to purchase a daycare franchise. At Discovery Point, we have franchise locations for sale in Georgia and Florida

Looking for more information about why a daycare franchise is such a good investment? Read on to learn more about why this industry is experiencing consistent growth.

Understanding the Growth of the Child Care Industry

The child care industry is projected to grow to $59.4 billion by the end of the year. Our industry is slated to see some of the fastest growth in employment among all service industries. 

A number of factors have led to the expansion of the child care industry over the past several years, including:

  • Demographics. The number of children in the country under the age of 5 was estimated at almost 20 million in 2017. A large proportion of these children benefit from child care services. Child Care Aware states that 11 million children under the age of 5 are in child care for 35 hours a week on average.
  • Social trends. The number of single-parent and dual-income households continues to rise. The vast majority of mothers with children, 70%, work outside of the home. While 58% of mothers with children under a year old are working leading to an increased need for child care services.
  • Increased appreciation of early childhood education. A better understanding of the importance of educating children early in the developmental process has led families to seek out high-quality educational child care options.
  • Employment trends. Sustained low unemployment between the years of 2015 and 2020 as well as increases in disposable income have made child care services accessible for more families.

Statistics like these are encouraging for prospective business owners who are considering joining the child care industry. One of the most promising ways to meet the growing demand for educational child care services is to invest in a child care franchise with a reputation for high-quality care and a solid history of business success.
