We Support Our Franchisees

Having experience in education isn’t necessary to open an Ivy Kids franchise because we provide our franchisees with comprehensive training and support.

Founded in 2013

About Our Training Program

Franchisees take part in an in-depth, three-week training program at our headquarters in Houston, Texas. There, we’ll lay out the details on how to run an Ivy Kids franchise — from record keeping to enrolling new families, to hiring great teachers, and more. By the time your training is complete, you should feel prepared to return to your school and hit the ground running.

Our assistance doesn’t end there. We’ll spend another two weeks with you on-site at your Ivy Kids franchise, helping you apply what you’ve learned to prepare for a successful grand opening. Franchisees can also look forward to ongoing training and professional development to keep them up-to-date on best practices.

Our Franchisees Come from All Walks of Life

We don’t expect you to have a background in education to join our team. Our franchisees are former corporate executives, parents looking to start family businesses, and community-minded entrepreneurs. We love to work with them all. Check out our Investment page for more information on what it takes to become a franchisee.

We Know What It Takes to Start Strong

Not only have we facilitated the opening of numerous franchises, we built this business ourselves. We know from firsthand experience what it takes to grow a thriving early childhood education business.

Our Philosophy

What We Expect from our franchisees

Our Goals

A Ready-Made

Business Opportunity

It can take an independent owner years to develop an efficient and effective business model. Ivy Kids has already done the legwork for you, so all you need to worry about is mastering our systems by fully leveraging our training program and support resources. Compared to independent owners, our franchisees save time, money, and hassle.

The Best Services

You can be confident that you’re offering in-demand, research-based curriculum that’s proven to be effective. As we learn more about early childhood education, you can count on us to keep your team updated on best practices and new techniques.

Well-Designed Operations Procedures

We know what it takes to keep our locations running smoothly. From time-saving software to streamlined safety procedures, our franchisees don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to operations.

Built-In Support

Our franchisees never need to worry about going it alone. Once their Ivy Kids location is up and running, our experienced team will continue supporting their growing business and provide ongoing training.
