Children’s Franchises – running in a school

by | Feb 22, 2013 | Home And Garden

In the era of the working woman, it is very much accepted a woman can have children and achieve a career to equal that of her male counterparts.

When relating this to Children Franchise Opportunities, this can mean two things.  Firstly, owning a franchise can be a real opportunity for a working mom to have a realistic work/life balance.  It can be a much needed challenge by doing something that has not been done before, but also it provides the opportunity to show the business acumen gained prior to starting a family.

A full day at school
However for the woman who is returning to work, Children Franchise Opportunities can also provide a much needed child care option.  This can work very successfully when it can be carried out within the school setting, usually after school.

There are distinct advantages of running a franchise within a school setting.  Of course, the children are very much at home.  Let’s be honest; this almost is a home to the children since they spend five days a week here.  The other advantage this brings is that acceptable behavior has already been established.  The children are still likely to behave as they do throughout the school day with the same respect and ideas on discipline.  As a franchisee, you are going into a sure environment.

Usually, setting up is comparatively minimal.  There are desks, chairs, heating, and good lighting already in place.  Often there are also resources that may be available to use, even if by negotiation.  This may be computers, paper, pens, or an oven.  Equipment will work, so you have minimised the risk of an embarrassing failure.

Often, there will be minimal or no rent to pay to utilize the space.  After school care is a selling point for a school, and a school needs to attract children in order to survive.  As such, a school will often see a franchisee entering the setting as something that is actually helping them and the parents of their pupils.

Providing a service
If you enter a school with a franchise that is supplementing the work the teachers do and are potentially giving children a chance to improve in some way, then it is likely to be an attractive proposition to a school.  Reinforcing learning is very much how education succeeds, and after- school clubs can provide the perfect opportunity for this.  Of course, this does not need to be all math and English; sports, dance, and crafts are also part of the school day.

Helping children achieve their best at school is one of the most rewarding aspects of running children franchise opportunities, such as those purchased through Kiddie Academy
