Dreaming about owning your own centre? It’s easier than you think!

As seen in The Sector.

Many of those with experience in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector have dreamt about one day owning their own service and “doing it right.”

You have the resources, the philosophy, and the team of your dreams at your fingertips, but the logistical challenges, such as sourcing land to build on, understanding licencing, design, planning, construction codes, and dealing with councils and approvals are likely a whole new world.

There’s a lot more that goes into opening a service beyond finding the right people to staff it and choosing the right playscapes for outside. However, owning your own childcare service doesn’t have to be a dream reserved for those with deep pockets, we’re here to bridge the gap between your educational expertise and the financial resources needed to start childcare centre.

At Mollard Property Group, we understand that educators, who are the backbone of the ECEC sector, often face financial constraints. That’s why we specialise in making the seemingly impossible, possible – helping you find the investors and funding needed to bring your vision to life.

“We understand that the process of opening a high quality and compliant service is a complex one,” Phil Mollard said. “We know, because we work with dedicated educators on a regular basis to help their dreams of owning their own centre come true, in a way which safeguards them, and their investment, from unscrupulous operators who cut corners to make their profits grow.”

Maria and John of My Playce are making their dreams of owning a centre come true with Mollard’s help.

“We had always wanted our own long day care centre,” Maria and John explained, “but once we got into the process of sourcing land, engaging with architects, a town planner and council, we quickly realised we would need specialised support. We came across Mollard Property Group through a Google search, and we’re so thankful we did. They made the process so easy from the minute we came on board.”

We are fostering a community where educators are not just participants but also leaders in the ECEC sector. Our mission is to turn your vision of owning a childcare service into a successful, thriving reality.

“ECEC services are such vital aspects to thriving communities, and setting them up right, from the start, is not a responsibility we take lightly,” Phil said.

“So much rests on the first five years of a child’s life, and we want to make sure that we partner with people who are going to help that start be an amazing one.”
