Also, lets not forget that you need highly visible branding as well as marketing support on mass media for ensuring that your target market knows about the new franchise being opened. So the educational establishment you choose should be able to provide this as well. The content should be innovative, with a demonstrated impact on the childrens learning curve, ensuring they are up to date with the latest advancements in not only technology but also teaching methods, curriculum, etc. And last but certainly not the least, you should be able to garner a quick return on investment, through an integrated business model. Another important factor to keep in mind, while looking to open a preschool franchise, is that whether the educational establishment offers parent resource material. This means part of the learning material is sent to the home of the children, to facilitate the parents to determine what the child has learnt as well as to enable continuation with the childs learning process, even when at home or over holidays. And of course you should expect complete ongoing support from the school, before, during and after you have opened the franchise. Complete ongoing support means operations and policy guidance, as well as sales, training and marketing input.
Now for the things your educational establishment would expect from you. For starters, they would expect a minimum of covered area on the ground floor for the classrooms and playrooms, as well as a certain open area for outdoor activities. The area should be away from the main road, and should also be easily accessible with availability of adequate parking. Another prerequisite is that the preschool franchise should be located in either a designated area for play schools or at least in a residential area. Remember these adages if you want to set up a successful franchise for preschool.
