As with virtually any business opportunity, business owners like you will want to ensure that you can attract a minimum number of students to your childcare franchise so you can earn an acceptable return on investment. In the case of a childcare franchise, this means you need to show parents that your school can make a positive difference in their child’s education.
This is a responsibility that is vastly different from the responsibilities of most other franchise opportunities. You are not simply preparing a meal, supplying customers with a one-day experience, or using your expertise to resolve a business problem. You are looking after the well-being of children at a critical point in their educational development.
Responsibilities as important as these can sometimes overwhelm entrepreneurs who try to handle everything on their own under a traditional small business format. This is where having an experienced franchisor in your corner can make all the difference – not just for your business venture, but also for the families who are sending their children to your school.
KLA Schools has developed a preschool franchise opportunity that stands out from the many childcare options currently available to parents. Our team helps each KLA franchise owner create an environment that is superior to the standard daycare franchise that most parents in nearby communities are used to seeing. Through the curriculum, teaching philosophy, and student-centric approach that each KLA Schools franchise implements, parents gain a better understanding and appreciation of what we can build together.
Our Reggio Emilia Curriculum Offers A Unique Approach
KLA Schools is one of the only childcare centers with multiple locations that utilize the innovative Reggio Emilia Approach. This curriculum gives students a more hands-on learning experience. Rather than exclusively learning through reading or hearing about a topic, KLA students can also participate in activities directly related to the subject. This approach:
- Is holistic and multisensory
- Offers children more input and direction on how they learn
- Creates a more enjoyable educational experience for students
- Combines environmental learning experiences with real-world interactions
- Usually helps students progress in their educational journey at a faster pace
When setting up your new childcare franchise, you will have the ability to provide input at every stage as we construct our shared vision of what each Reggio Emilia-inspired lesson looks like. You’ll also be able to hire teachers and other staff to help manage the day-to-day education of the students.
KLA Schools only chooses candidates who are committed to the Reggio Emilia approach and who can pass our thorough background checks. This process is designed to find and eliminate any “red flags” in potential staff members that would present added difficulties to the students’ educational experience or don’t align with our values. Together, we’ll build a preschool franchise that can deliver the best early childhood education around – which will inevitably attract even more families to the nearest KLA Schools franchise.
Reggio Emilia Can Drive Better Outcomes
Overall, parents prefer a school that offers the best possible outcome for their child. When it comes to childcare, there might not be a more crucial time for a student’s educational journey. Parents are aware of this, which is why they are particularly sensitive to what school their child attends in their early years. A school that simply meets standards is no longer good enough to be a significantly attractive option for parents. This is why KLA has put so much effort into building a franchise business model that gives our students a better learning curriculum in the early stages of their education, which can increase your chances of success as a KLA Schools franchise owner.
Many of our franchise owners elect to bring a KLA school to their local community rather than moving to another area, which is uncommon compared to some other preschool franchise opportunities. Not only does this provide you with a more authentic connection with the families attending your school, but it also helps us build a preschool franchise that accurately reflects the identity, needs, and values of the community where it is located.
As long as you continue to implement the Reggio Emilia Approach throughout your curriculum, we are confident that our partnership can give parents and students alike exactly what they are looking for in a preschool.
