Competition / Market Pros & Cons
The center has a great clientele, highly trained and educated staff, and nice facility. There is a heavy emphasis on quality care and ongoing training and education for the teachers. The center has a waitlist of families waiting to get in.
Growth and Expansion Pros & Cons
Despite the center being licensed for 59 kids and the center having a waiting list, the owner has chosen to artificially cap the enrollment at 48 kids due to her desire to offer quality child care. A new owner who is more ambitious could take advantage of the waiting list and increase enrollment to the center's capacity.
