Creative World School is a unique business opportunity in the early child education industry. Our schools are unlike any other in the market and provide several selling advantages to our owners. Our franchise brand is the 'right size' to provide unrivaled corporate support to our franchisees while delivering a cutting edge educational product to families. Our beautiful schools feature our exclusive Exploratorium™, age-specific playgrounds on three sides of the building, and a proprietary curriculum. Each room of our school is built specifically to be child-size, right down to the plumbing fixtures, and provide endless opportunities for exploration and discovery. We welcome new franchisees who have a passion for child education and no prior industry experience is required. The first requirement is the desire to have fun each and every day, and to greet every family with a smile!

Many of our owners are multi-site operators and we offer discounted franchisee fees for additional locations and for Veterans.

A full array of marketing materials are available to advertise specialty events throughout the year, and support is available to help design and place advertisements.

A separate website page is provided for each school to aid in lead generation and an advanced CRM system is provided to manage communications with prospective parent leads.
In the child education industry, a typical day is anything BUT typical! In general, an owner could be meeting with a family taking a tour of the school, hiring and training new staff members, managing the finances, ordering supplies for the classrooms, driving the school bus with the children on a field trip, and so much more! One guarantee on a typical day is to be surrounded by the laughter of children and witnessing the moment a child discovers how to do something new! It could be the first few steps an infant takes, it could be the first few spoken words, or it could be building a tall skyscraper out of blocks. Anything is possible as a Creative World School owner!
