How to Start a Childcare Business

Why be the Tenant when you can own your own childcare centre?

Now is a great time to take advantage and develop your own childcare centre with the softening in property values and building costs. Create something super special for way less than you would pay in rent.

As an experienced Childcare Operator, you are privileged with banking arrangements available for you to develop and own your own childcare centre, requiring just 16% of the total project expenses either in cash or equity.

Our Team at Mollard Property Group has created a detailed, easy to follow Childcare Centre Development Case Study “Buy + Develop + Operate Model” that demonstrates the benefits of developing your own childcare centre, compared to leasing. The case study includes a financial analysis based on a Childcare Operator buying a site, developing and operating a typical standalone 100-place childcare centre.
