How To Select The Perfect Location For Your Child Care Franchise Business

If potential day-care owners were to make wish lists that covered the characteristics of the perfect location for their businesses, there would be many items on the list. Before deciding on the location for your child care business, make sure that you can legally use the property for child care. Evaluate the space for accessibility and safety and health concerns. Of course, affordability counts; it hardly matters if a place seems ideal if the cost puts it out of reach, so it’s important to have a budget in place before choosing a day-care site. Here are a few things you should consider before deciding a location for your day-care business.


Before settling on a location for child care, it is wise to familiarise oneself with a community and understand the needs of residents and employees of nearby businesses. Learning about the demographics of an area can save a lot of grief. It will help you to know the best location to place your childcare centre where they are needed most and to assure a good supply of clients. Neighbourhoods with growing families are good choices, and places with good visibility along well-travelled roads often offer the best and most convenient access for parents.

Physical space:

Your childcare location must have adequate outdoor and indoor space. Before choosing a building or location, you must have the answers for the following questions, Is the outdoor play space will be suitable for the ages of children you’ll care for? Will you have a space for each child’s personal belongings? Is there enough space for each child to move freely? Are there viewing windows into each room occupied by children? Is the physical layout arranged so that caregivers can view all areas at all times? Can you maintain adequate air flow and comfortable room temperature? Will you have places for children to play, eat and rest? Is there room for storage of cleaning supplies, staff belongings and additional items? Another important thing that you will need to consider is natural light. Ask about skylights if you’re sandwiched between buildings

Fire Prevention and Safety

This is one of the most critical areas for you to consider. In order to keep the children safe, you will also need to take certain health and safety measures. You need to make sure that potential sites are safe. Level outdoor surfaces, spacious playroom, fenced gardens for play, sufficient kitchen and bathroom spaces, and ample parking for parents are all considerations. For prevention, there must be a fire suppression system throughout the facility; there must be two exits out of each child activity room. One exit must lead directly to the outside and Cribs should be able to fit through all exit doors. Contact your local fire station to learn about local fire safety rules.


Look at both indoor and outdoor areas when you consider health issues. Avoid areas with high air pollution. Make sure the buildings contain no asbestos, lead or other toxic materials. You can take help from experts who can take samples of paint and other materials for testing. Also, avoid areas near gas stations where there are underground or above ground gas/oil storage tanks.
