The Learning Experience | International Franchise Association

Why Choose The Learning Experience?

Join a growing industry that has enjoyed revenue increases of 210% over the past five years. With increasing numbers of working mothers and single parent households, and wide-spread recognition that early learning contributes to life-long success, the demand for quality child care and early education continues to rise. That’s why Entrepreneur Magazine recently named child care franchises the top industry to watch.

  • $1.8 Billion – expected industry growth over the next five years
  • 28 Million – number of children under 6 in the U.S.
  • 10 Million – estimated number of children in the U.S. without access to quality child care

The Learning Experience is an industry leader and one of the nation’s fastest growing early education and child care franchises, with a proven track record of success for both our students and our franchisees. 9 out of 10 of our pre-school graduates read before kindergarten, and more than 70% of our franchisees buy additional units or refer new franchisees to us. As a testament to the opportunities we provide, many parents with enrolled children also become franchisees. 

  • 210% increase in 5 year system-wide revenue growth
  • 45.5% compounded 5 year annual revenue growth
  • 300+ corporate partners who refer their employees to The Learning Experience
