If you’re looking to own your own business and seek to make a difference in the lives of children in your community, then you’re in luck. Over the last 20 years, education franchises have exploded from a handful of tutoring and lesson-giving franchises to dozens if not hundreds of different franchises that are changing the way kids learn outside the traditional classroom.
This trend is not limited to children of school age. No longer is child care considered babysitting. Most child care centers have transitioned to centers for early education where staff receive extensive training in instruction geared toward preschoolers.
In addition, while there has always been a need for tutoring in reading, math and SAT/ACT prep, many newer education franchises are focused on enrichment rather than remedial or practical help. Having their students do well in school is no longer enough for parents who know that the college and career world has become fiercely competitive no matter the field.
What makes a franchise focused on child education attractive to many is that a teaching background is usually not required. So, if you like kids, have a good business sense and wish to give back to your community, one of these franchises may be a great option for you.
Mathnasium, ranked #1 on the most recent Franchise Gator Top 100, is a neighborhood math-only learning center that teaches kids math in a way that makes sense to them. The brand has transformed the way children understand and appreciate math, whether they’re ahead of the curve, performing at grade level, or falling behind. Mathnasium has become one of the fastest-growing educational franchises with more than 900 locations globally and more opening each week.
