The business provides before school, after school, before and after school, daytime and full-time day care service including meals and snacks for children ages newborn to 12 years. They operate weekdays, Monday through Friday, 6 am to 6 pm.
The building is roughly 2,750 square feet with the various rooms necessary to segregate children by age and need as well as a kitchen. One office serves as the safe room. The physical location of the facility is important to the business. This building was constructed specifically for this business when it was rebuilt in 2012 after it was destroyed by the tornado that struck Joplin in 2011. It is not a high traffic location which provides a measure of security and has ample parking and also room for the playground. The land and building are valued at approximately $250,000.00. Seller prefers to sell the building along with the business.
There is always potential for growth with a new owner who has fresh ideas and fresh energy. That growth may come from offering additional services or changes in pricing structure. However, state regulations limit capacity based upon the size of the facility.
This business is in a great location for the services they provide. Their location in the south part of Joplin puts them in close proximity to two of the three largest employers in the city, Freeman Health System and Mercy Hospital. There are a couple of competitors in the city but none that provide the variety of services, the quality and the level of service that it provided here.
Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost. A new owner would need to obtain a Missouri State License to operate a day care center.
