Frequently Asked Questions

You're probably wondering…

What is Kidville looking for in a franchise partner?

We are looking for franchisees who share a passion for children and customer service. In addition, strong franchisees often have general business acumen and skills that can be adapted to our operations, including past experience in operating retail establishments or other customer-based businesses.

After completing the Kidville training process, we felt completely confident and excited to run our location. The Kidville support team continues to impress us with their innovative thinking and dedication to success.

—Erica Vitanza, Owner of Kidville Hoboken

What type of training is provided?

In addition to the mandatory initial franchise owner training, we also offer optional training by request.

Do I need a degree or background in education?

No. One of the best parts of owning a Kidville franchise is that we have spent years of research developing programs suitable for children and will teach you our programs and methodology at your initial training. We also follow up with ongoing training and coaching from our Early Childhood Development Team during your check-in calls and onsite visits.

Is a franchise available in my area?

We hope so! We are growing quickly, so please contact us directly to find out if your territory is available.

What is the total investment necessary to open my own Kidville franchise?

The comprehensive costs of opening a franchise, including franchise fee, equipment, marketing materials, location setup, training, computer software, etc., for a stand-alone Annex ranges from $288,905 to $441,900. Our Hub model ranges from $599,710 to $897,400.

The range of investment is due primarily to the real estate chosen and cost of fitting out the facility.

What is the difference between a Hub location and an Annex location?

Hub locations are approximately 8,000 square feet (5 to 6 classrooms), while Annex locations are approximately 3,500 square feet (2 classrooms).

Other than square footage, the major difference between the Hub and Annex model is the ability to offer additional services to parents at hubs, such as a café, salon, or larger retail space. Both models have the ability to offer all Kidville classes, birthday parties, camps, playspace, and special events.

You are able to choose the model or combination of models that best suits your community’s needs and personal investment capacity.

Does Kidville provide financing?

We do not offer direct financing. However, we can refer you to third party lenders who may be able to help qualified candidates finance the investment.
