Getting Started: Make Your Dream a Reality With Your New Creative World School Franchise
When you invest in your future with a Creative World School child care franchise, we invest in you too. Our experienced team will help you get off to a great start when it comes to building your facility and financing your child care center.
We’ll assist you in retaining a qualified commercial realtor in your area to identify potential sites for your school. We’ll furnish you with a demographic comparison of the sites you select including population, income, and number of children ages 1-4 within 5 miles. We’ll also analyze your competition, their tuition and enrollment levels to assist in your decision of the best site. We’ll then assist you in negotiating the best contract price for the land.
Once your site is under contract and we know the land price, we’ll assist you in applying for SBA financing through a local bank. The purchase contract will be contingent of satisfactory financing and you will get a commitment letter from the bank to assure you that financing is available.
Development: Building Your Dream!
We’ll furnish a complete set of our prototype construction plans to our architect who will modify their design to fit your site and complete the building permit process for your school. You may choose exterior colors of the building (brick or stucco) including trim colors and roof shingles. The permit process should take 2-3 months.
When the building plans are complete and submitted for permits, we will help you select 4-5 local General Contractors that are experienced in constructing comparable buildings and invite them to bid on the project. You will review their bids and decide which contractor will build your school. Construction generally will take about 6 months, weather permitting and together we’ll have weekly conference calls with the contractor to keep the construction on schedule.
Pre-Opening: The Countdown to Success!
We’ll assist you in recruiting an experienced, qualified Director, Assistant Director, teachers, and staff prior to opening. We will train you and your Directors at our Corporate Headquarters in Florida with additional training in your school. Teacher and staff training will be held in your school before your Grand Opening and on-going for the entire term of your franchise.
We put ourselves on the front lines to introduce your school to the community and get the exciting word out! Our marketing and support teams work together to design a customized promotion strategy that works for you and your community. Our goal is to help you during the Pre-Enrollment process and ensure you open your doors to a solid foundation of eager families and children ready to learn!
