It is not just in case of franchisees but even majority of franchisors in pre-school education sector are women.

Requisites to own a franchise pre-school

To take a pre-school franchise, you should have a passion for children and a keen interest in working with them. To run a pre-school requires a lot of efforts and patience. Consider the below mentioned aspects prior to take-up a franchise:

  • Investment: A pre-school franchise requires an approximate investment of Rs 5-10 lakh. In most of the cases the franchisee has to invest in property renovation, furniture, toys, general equipments, transportation, staff recruitment, training and salary. In addition to this, a franchisee has to spend on local marketing to create brand awareness at the local level.
  • Efficient staff: A good team of qualified teachers is the prime requisite to assure the proper working of a pre-school. Franchisee needs to organise training sessions for teachers from time-to-time. Franchisor lends its franchisees a helping hand in recruiting the teachers. Additionally, the franchisors have a team of people that review the processing of every franchise unit to retain and sustain the benchmark standards of the brand.
  • Location: The minimum land requirement to open a pre-school is 1,000 sq. ft to 1500 sq. ft. It should not be located in a very crowded area with a high traffic frequency. 

The entrepreneurs who are aspiring to take up a pre-school franchise and lack adequate financial resources have an option to take up bank loans. If you have the zeal to work with kids, then nothing better than owning a pre-school franchise. Pre-school is not only a fine business for making good money but also gratifies you by letting you help the children in their overall grooming.
