Buy a Day Care or Child Care Center

The U.S. Day Care industry earns almost $50 million annually and has a consistent growth rate that seems to climb even during sluggish economic times. There’s a good reason, as almost two-thirds of parents of children under six years old work outside the home and require childcare. High-quality child care is essential for allowing parents the freedom to get the jobs they need to provide decent livings for their families. So, finding the right daycare center for sale or deciding to buy a daycare center can benefit far more than just your own bank account. Industry products and activities include:

  • Providing daily care for children and infants
  • Providing programs for preschool children
  • Pre-elementary school instruction and activities
  • Other child-related programs and services
  • In-home child care
  • Center-based childcare

Almost 750,000 daycare-related businesses nationwide employ over 1.5 million American workers. Opting to buy a child care center that’s for sale can go a long way towards keeping the American economy running strong. And according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the day care industry is expected to top the industry list for employment growth by the year 2020. Buying the perfect daycare business for sale can help you build a future you’ll truly be proud of.

If you feel like you need to expand your horizons past simply childcare, buy a children's franchise which includes educational, musicals, and athletic franchises- all for children!
