Why Choose a Franchise in Childcare?

A franchise opportunity in the childcare industry is the best way to get started in business for yourself. You have all the benefits of being part of a successful childcare organization while still operating your own business. In the competitive child care field, there is increasing competition for customers and qualified staff. The advantages of being part of a growing child care organization that is constantly working with you to help you keep your competitive edge cannot be overstated. The childcare industry is full of benefits other industries cannot provide. If you have children, or family and friends with children, you can provide the best quality childcare to them.

It’s A Good Business: Early childhood education is a lucrative business in any economy as working parents always need high quality education for their children. More parents than ever before recognize the benefits of early childhood education and understand that choosing the right school can make a difference to their child’s success in kindergarten and beyond. Unlike other businesses, our industry caters to not only the all important education of our future generations, but also allows working parents the reassurance of knowing their children are in good hands while they are doing their best to provide for their families. We are one of the few industries that can prosper in a poor economy. For example: The average revenue from our larger (12,000 sq. ft.) schools in 2013 was $1,540,987, an increase of $21,682 over 2012! Imagine the potential!

It’s The Foundation of ALL Education: No longer “daycare”…our industry has evolved as we have learned more about brain development and the importance of early childhood experiences in shaping future learning. Unlike other businesses, early childhood education plays a vital role in guiding the development of our future generations.

It Has Great Hours and Gives Back: Our schools are not open 24/7, like many other franchises, allowing more time to enjoy hobbies or vacations.

Besides being a good financial investment, knowing you are making a positive impact in your community makes it an investment with amazing results!

Why Choose Creative World School?

You have probably wondered if owning a childcare franchise is a good investment. Our franchisees would answer this with a resounding “Yes!”. Many of our owners have more than one school and are already considering plans for adding additional schools.
When you become a CW Franchisee, you join a team of dedicated professionals who have made the exciting decision to bring high quality early education to their community. In our 40+ year history, we have never had a failure!

We do not require you to have a background in education. You will be trained in our proven systems and we will assist you in hiring experienced qualified educators for your school. If your dream is to own an early childhood learning center, we can help you make that dream come true.

Creative World School Curriculum is not only accredited, it’s a proven foundation for success!

The basis for our educational approach is the unlimited potential of young learners and their great capacity for collecting knowledge. We believe that rich content is the foundation for learning and that by encouraging and nurturing children’s curiosity, we ignite the spark that drives our curriculum. With a driving influence of childhood curiosity, our Creative World inquiry curriculum approaches early childhood education by integrating three core approaches, or what we call the Three E’s.

opportunity-img4Our inquiry curriculum is designed to challenge children to become problem solvers, to experiment, to explore, and have the tools to build on their knowledge base. Rather than narrowing our focus to nominal educational skills, Creative World, using the Three E’s approach, covers a vast amount of skills and topics beyond “the basics”. With that, we provide an accredited curriculum that surpasses school readiness expectations. As an early childhood education daycare provider for over 45 years, we understand that the world is changing and children need to be prepared for a future that is evolving. Our focus goes beyond rote learning. Our emphasis is on developing reasoning skills and an intrinsic love of learning. When children are interested and inspired, there is no limit to what they can learn! We want our graduates to be future Google Execs, Scientists, Creative-Outside-the-Box Thinkers…the sky’s the limit!

With every new topic, we begin by discussing what the children already know and what they ponder and are curious about the topic. The real learning happens as they playfully explore topics with the support of their teacher, which leads them through rich learning experiences focused around their interest and questions. Every day, our World is full of new and exciting discoveries!
