If you fit this profile, then we’ve got 5 clear-cut steps to get your business rolling.
Step 1: Inquire.
In the interests of simplicity, we only need a few key pieces of information to get started. Our child care business franchise inquiry form asks for your: contact detail, financial qualifications, territory of interest, whether or not you would like to explore multi-unit ownership, as well as information on current licensing/certifications. This jumping off point provides the foundation for the next step in this evaluation which is the first conference call!
Step 2: Let’s Get to Know Each Other.
Upon receipt of your Initial Inquiry Form, we will contact you to set a date and time to speak with the VP of Franchise Operations & Development. It is a no obligation call, more of an informal conversation to get to know each other. We very much want to learn about you and your interest in our child care business opportunity. We’ll also take this time to provide you with information about market availability and next steps.
Step 3: Application.
After this initial call, if our franchise professional believes you meet the personality and financial profiles, we will send you a more comprehensive application. Deadlines for submission will be discussed and we will provide a contact number in case you have any questions. When we receive this application, we will forward the 2019 Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Step 4: Meet and Greet.
While you review the FDD, our team will get to work on the evaluation of your application. You can expect some calls/emails to go back and forth during this phase, so you get the clearest possible picture of our child care business opportunity, and we can get the clearest possible picture of your suitability. If we confirm you as a qualified candidate, you will be invited to join us for an in-depth look at Celebree Schools!
Step 5: Discover Celebree Schools.
This is the best part! You will be welcomed to join us for a Discovery Day where we’ll conduct a behind-the-doors tour of our flagship location and Center for Excellence in Education (corporate offices and training center) in Lutherville, MD. Over the course of 1 to 2 days, candidates will meet our founder and each of our franchise leadership team members. This is when we really come together as a group of people focused on something that’s bigger than all of us.
We hope you can join us. Our child care business opportunity could be the start of something great for you!
