With rising birth rates and growing numbers of dual-income families, the child development industry generates billions in revenue.2
Child care is one of the top 10 categories for future franchise growth1:
13 million children under the age of six are enrolled in child care, making it one of the fastest growing service industries in the world.3
The child development industry is nearly recession-proof. During tough economic times, families often work longer hours or send a second parent into the workforce – families want the best for their children!2
More than half of all mothers enter the workforce within a year of a child's birth, and 87% of previously employed women are back at work within 9 months.2
Center-based child care should continue to expand its share of the industry. Parents prefer its more formal setting and believe that it provides a better foundation for children before they begin traditional schooling.4
Families' increasing demand for quality care creates unique opportunities for motivated entrepreneurs. Individuals who share our core values – Commitment, Accountability, Respect and Excellence – have the opportunity to become successful Doodle Bugs! franchisees, with or without prior child care experience.
