5 Questions for Prospective Tiny Hoppers Franchisees

August 14, 2015

Founded in 2005, Tiny Hoppers Early Learning Centres started with just one location in Ottawa South. In the ten years since, our child care centres have expanded to ten locations in Ontario, with ten more to open soon. Tiny Hoppers is on the rise, and you can be part of the experience by owning and operating a franchise of your own. While this is an exciting and rewarding opportunity, owning a Tiny Hoppers franchise may not be for everyone. Consider your answers to these five questions, and you’ll know whether you should pursue this worthwhile opportunity:

Would You Love to Work With Children Every Day?

It should go without saying that owning a child care franchise will connect you with children of all ages. From caring for infants as young as six months to engaging with school-aged children in the after-school day care program, you certainly have to love kids to be in this business. You have to be able to handle crying, sneezing, screeching, temper tantrums…but you also know you get to see kids develop, engage, and blossom into wondrous and spirited people.

Would You Enjoy Owning a Business That Benefits Children and Their Families?

Owning a child care franchise is more than a profitable financial opportunity that will set you and your family up for comfort. It is an investment in the community, and you get to see the many benefits to children and their families. From the tiny daily victories to benefits over the long term, you enjoy a sense of pride knowing you’re helping people out. When parents enroll their children in our daycare programs, they can go to work with the security that their children are well-cared for and tended to all day long.

Are You Able to Work as a Team Member Within a Franchise Program?

Tiny Hoppers franchise owners can enjoy a lot of independence, but they also work in partnership with the other owners to guide the long-term success of the overall company. We all work together to ensure a high level of quality and that the main goals of the company are always upheld. Our primary goal has and always will be to aid in the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of children. No matter where they are located, all franchises should operate identically so parents can rely on the same high standard of quality everywhere. You must work as a team member to uphold this level of quality.

Do You Have Sufficient Financial Resources to Put Into This Venture?

Owning a franchise will be very financially rewarding, but it also requires an initial investment. There is an initial franchise fee of $35,000, and the space required for the facilities usually costs between $250,000 to $350,000. Franchise candidates are expected to invest a minimum of $75,000 in unencumbered personal cash.

Are You Committed to Making This Business a Success in the Long-Term?

Tiny Hoppers franchisees are all on board and invested in the long-term vision of the company, not just trying to make a quick buck. If you want to help children flourish for years to come, then you may be a suitable franchise, candidate.
