Our approach to learning has created satisfying long-term opportunities for a diverse and increasing number of highly driven franchisees across the country. Drawn to the combination of financial independence, work-life harmony and community impact, they’ve been a huge factor in our growth.
Our franchisees succeed at such a high rate because their motivation and commitment are strengthened by the support we give them. After gaining a complete understanding of your goals, the experienced team at Kiddie Academy headquarters guides you along the way, from site selection through grand opening and beyond.
Here’s how we help:
Our experienced real estate team will help you evaluate and select the ideal site for your franchise location. Your future Kiddie Academy can be developed as a new building, a retrofit of an existing structure or within a shopping center or office park. You can lease or purchase your building. Everyone has different needs, so we keep our real estate options flexible.
Our construction team will work with you in a variety of ways to keep your development project moving—from concept plans to assisting with the zoning process and guiding your Kiddie Academy construction.
We’ll leverage our strong relationships with many national and regional lenders to help you engage with them as you secure financing. We’ll supply you with templates and training to help you develop your loan package. We’ll also review your business plan before you submit it to lenders. Our finance team is here to work with you from site selection through loan closing and grand opening.
Training at Kiddie Academy’s headquarters in Maryland includes classroom and hands-on experiences. You and your Academy Director will learn all about our proprietary Life Essentials® philosophy. Beyond that, you’ll benefit from ready-to-use marketing, operations and financial tools.
Pre-Opening, Grand Opening and Onward
Your dedicated Pre-Opening Enrollment Manager will visit your site, provide additional training and share best practices in education, operations and marketing. Each consultant is accountable for a limited number of franchisees, so you’ll get quality time and thorough business counseling across a wide range of topics.
