Why Choose a Child Care/Early Education Franchise?

The child care and early education industries have grown exponentially over the past decade and shows no signs of slowing down.

  • This is a recession proof industry!
  • Revenue generated by the child care industry is expected to reach $1.8 billion within the next five years and will continue to grow as the population grows!
  • The White House has placed a greater emphasis on the need for early education for children under the age of six, with emphasis on literacy, mathematics and language-based skills.
  • There has been a shift in workforce participation that has put both parents into the workplace and developed an increased need for quality child care.
  • According to the most recent US Census report, there are nearly 25 million children under the age of six that currently live in the United States (projected to be 28 million by 2016), and an estimated 10 million of those children have no formal child care available to them.
  • Entrepreneur Magazine named the child care/early education franchise industry as the top franchise industry to watch in 2014.
