This is a great opportunity for an experienced daycare professional to own high quality, well-established (41 yrs) authentic Montessori daycare center in Monmouth County with an outstanding childcare record. It is well situated on a high traffic main road with easy access and parking. Conforming to the standards set by the American Montessori Society, the program balances freedom and structure as the children work both individually and in groups from an ordered arrangement of learning materials displayed on low shelves. It would be a seamless transition for a certified, experienced Montessori professional.
The center is a well-maintained 4,300 sqft facility with 2 classrooms, a playroom, a nap room, an entry hall, and an outside playground. While the center is licensed for 95 children ages 2 months to 6 years, the center only offers classes for ages 2 to 6 years. Services include Toddler, Pre-K, After Care, and Summer Camp. Their vacation schedule throughout the year is the same as the town public school system. 39 children were enrolled at the time of state closings. Currently, there are 14 enrolled and the center is profitable due to its low overhead. The lease, with 3 years and a 1-year option remaining, is a strategic asset. The rent, which includes taxes and CAM, is significantly under the market and the host building provides free telephone, internet, and maintenance services. There are also two additional rooms available and the lease allows for the space to be adjusted up or down yearly if needed at a preset rent.
The business is family-owned with the mother and daughter sharing Director/teacher responsibilities. They oversee is a very experienced and professional staff of 5 who have degrees and have worked at the center for a minimum of 15 years. Over the last several years the owners have reduced business hours and services for a better work/life balance. Now, after many years dedicated to providing quality child care, they have decided to retire, leaving growth opportunities for a new full-time owner-operator. Expanding hours to increase Pre & After Care, and introducing Infants are key areas for growth. They are very motivated to sell and to ensure a successful transition they will provide two weeks of on-site training to assist the new owners.
The business is offered at $75,000. For more details call Paul Holveck at Executive Business Brokers, 732-266-8136.
