iKids U Offers Franchisees And Parents All The Educational Offerings They Need
Children’s education franchises are a hot commodity right now. One of the reasons is an increasing body of research finds that the benefits of early childhood education has created a growing interest among parents for education-based child care. Most of these franchises provide center-based child care primarily for children under the age of six, typically with a focus on promoting mathematics, literacy, and language-based skills. Over the five years to 2019, industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 6.8% to reach $3.3 billion, including a robust 5.4% increase in 2019 alone. Profit, measured as earnings before interest and taxes, is estimated to account for 12.8% of total industry revenue in 2019.
It’s easy to see why a children’s based franchise makes such a wise investment. But not all franchises are equal. Some only provide narrow focuses, such as science or math. But iKids U is a full-spectrum provider of everything a parent might need for their children. Franchisees can find success and have the work-life balance they want simply by deciding which iKids U services work best for them and their community. Not only can they pick ala carte from several different classes and services, but summers are optional and the company follows the school calendar. Franchisees get the leisure of enjoying all the school holidays or the option to add to their revenue by offering camps.
“There are different enrichment, tutoring, and daycare franchises out there, but you get it all with iKids U and the investment choice is clear,” says Autumn Seiler, founder & president of the Houston-based iKids Inc. “For the same or less, you can get everything with iKids U and have the potential to rival or exceed revenue potentials. iKids U gives you options, you are not locked into only one type of children’s service.”
There are many other unique benefits to franchising with iKids U. The investment requirement is lower than most other educational franchise opportunities. That’s because the franchisee avoids the initial (and ongoing) overhead cost of having to purchase or lease their own location. The mobile business allows for the franchisee to accumulate funds via registrations before the start of the program and then use those funds to purchase supplies to run the program when it begins with the school year.
iKids offers its franchisees New Hire Training, Management Training, and Administrative Training that was created by expert individuals with collectively more than 50 years of experience in both public and private schools. The curriculum is easy to read and navigate, providing a one sheet daily look where materials, process, and helpful hints/tips are provided.
“iKids has been in business for more than a decade and we’ve learned a lot through those years on how to maintain the quality of our programs,” says Seiler. “It’s the result of thorough staff trainings, consistent onsite visits, administrative support, and evolving curriculum with time. The dedication of the iKids team is key to the quality of the program.”
iKids U offers a ‘one stop shop’ to more than 20 different after-school enrichment classes with customizable daily schedules including part-time and full-time care options where a family can choose to attend for as little as 1 day per week or as much as 5 days per week. The variety of these classes include Art, Cooking, Science, Robotics to name a few, and the most popular - Stay & Play. Stay & Play class rotates recreational, educational, and creative activities throughout the week. In addition to after-school care and enrichment classes, iKids also offers one-on-one services like tutoring and camps.
