Professional Support for Your Learning Center Franchise

Bring your business skills to the table, and feel confident as you operate your Ivy Kids learning center franchise. Being part of a franchise system has countless advantages, including hands-on support every step of the way – especially when it comes from the very team that founded and grew the Ivy Kids concept from the very beginning.

Did You Know? Many other learning center franchise concepts are owned by private equity companies – but not Ivy Kids. Private equity companies may not have the first-hand experience in operating learning centers and may lack the passion of a founding team.

Our founding team is still at the helm, and brings a unique perspective on innovation, business needs and trends, and day to day operations. With thorough knowledge and understanding of the business, and even its challenges, we are prepared to fully support our franchise owners.
