Strongly Profitable Daycare

$470,000

Business description

A long-established daycare with roots in the community is now looking for a new owner to step in and take the reins. This daycare center has shown strong growth in recent years, with continued opportunity ahead. 70+ children enrolled (some PT), licensed for 60 on site at a time.

The current owner spent many years working for larger corporate daycares before starting her own, and the experience & professionalism is clear in this opportunity. Standard operating procedures, excellent employee relationships, & strong systems in place are all designed to be easily transferred to a new owner, looking to take that step. The Seller wishes to pursue other opportunities, but understands the importance of continuity, and is willing to work alongside a Buyer for a period to ensure the employees, kids, & families are comfortable & confident that the quality of service will continue.

The property was designed & built for its current use and is in excellent shape. An additional description of the property can be provided after an NDA is signed, and the location is also available for sale.

Throughout the facility & business operations, it’s clear that the enterprise is perfectly positioned to be transferred; well-maintained and well-documented, a new owner is in an excellent position to focus on the future.

  • Facilities The property was designed & built for its current use and is in excellent shape. Wood-framed with a nice shingle roof, the structure is only +/- 20 years old, and well-maintained. Exterior maintenance includes some nice landscaping, and new shingling on the front. A large, dedicated, & paved parking lot accommodates 15+ vehicles at a time, with multiple curb cuts to alleviate high-traffic times in the morning and evening. The entrance consists of a small room with double-doors, which is excellent for heat retention in the winter, with the high foot traffic common in the industry. From the hallway are three larger rooms, which allow for separation by age for the older children; a smaller back room is designed for the babies & toddlers. The front office is excellently positioned to monitor traffic through the front door, adjacent to the entrance. Four bathrooms are located throughout the facility, one of which is specially designed to help with potty training. Other amenities include excellent natural light, all new high-efficiency light fixtures, ample storage in several storage closets, a full kitchen with multiple fridges and plentiful pantry space, and a washer / dryer for soiled laundry. The entire facility is immaculate – in addition to being cleaned daily, the signs of investment are everywhere; new toys, new siding in the preschool area (much easier to clean!), new high-efficiency lighting, and more. The back yard is a child’s dream; an extensive space with plenty of opportunities for running, jumping, and playing. Multiple structures invite ready exploration, while the area is carefully segregated by fencing to ensure children stay within the safe confines appropriate to their age & ability. The entire backyard is fenced in, with a new shed set off to the side for off-season storage of the outside toys.
  • Competition This community is a wonderful bedroom community, supporting the greater Androscoggin area, and has a high demand for daycare services. The facility is located at one of the primary intersections in the town and has excellent signage; a long waiting list currently exists. Ideal location less than a mile from both the primary & elementary schools!
