Why the early childhood business?
The childcare business is one of the most recession proof business you can find today. As of Jan 2015, there are a total of 1,160 childcares in Singapore with a total enrolment of 85,496. With an average full-day fee of $993/month, this means that the Childcare Sector in Singapore is an astounding $1B/year market!
With such a huge market, many people are clamouring for a piece of the pie. However, there are many barriers to entry to starting a brand new childcare. These can come in the form of high capital costs, operational costs, difficulty in finding quality staff, lack of branding, high initial marketing costs, difficulty in securing a suitable premise, stiff competition and many more. Faced with all these challenges, one of the easiest way to enter the childcare business is by taking over an established and profitable centre so that you put your money to work hard for you immediately.
In today’s society, it is very common for both parents to be working. In order to increase birth rates, government has introduced very heavy subsidies for parents who send their children to childcare centres. This simply means that the Singapore government is paying YOU – the childcare owner – for running your business.
