Average Day Care Start-up Costs: $100,000 - 300,000

Start-up costs represent the major hurdle to overcome in starting your new daycare. Whether you are a new business or franchise, your first step in most cases is a professional childcare business plan.  A business plan is needed to secure start-up funding, which averages between $100,000-300,000.

Start-up costs can include:

  • Renovations – construction, signage, remodelling costs.

  • Equipment – mats, play equipment, chairs, reception area.

  • Licensing – provincial licensing required to operate a daycare.

  • Working capital needs – e.g. 3 months overhead for operating expenses like staff wages, rent, supplies, utilities and marketing.

  • Marketing – Advertising, online marketing, direct marketing to local residents.


Maximize Your Chances of Getting Funded With a Professional Day Care Business Plan

Each week banks receive poorly written business plans which are not fit for funding. When daycare owners write their own business plan it often lacks the necessary detail, financial projections or overall professionalism. That being said, daycares can be excellent business opportunities for banks to provide funding for. The secret to success is a plan that stands out, commands respect and meets all their criteria.



Daycares – A Great Business Model

If you are passionate about helping children, fostering creativity and education while in the safety of your daycare then a daycare can be an excellent business opportunity for you. Our clients are passionate about the business, and just need a daycare business plan to get everything started.

  • Long daycare waiting lists – most daycares in Canada have long wait lists, with too many applicants and not enough spots available.

  • Increasingly busy parents – Whether a single or two-parent household, increasing Canadians report they struggle to find free time with work and responsibilities.

  • Growing population – Each year Canada’s population grows, requiring more and more daycares for children.

  • Growing Canadian economy – As Canada’s economy continues to rebound and disposable income levels rise, more parents are willing and able to spend money on childcare services for their children.
