Montessori schools have become extremely popular over the past three decades. Although these institutions are expensive for most families, many people find it to be imperative to provide their young children within education that prepares them for high school as well as college. The barriers to entry for starting a new Montessori school are relatively high. The startup costs generally range anywhere from $250,000 all the way to $3 million depending on the scope, scale, and size of the facility. One of the primary drawbacks to owning and operating a Montessori school is that there ongoing expense are extremely high. People that are specially trained in the ways of a Montessori education must be hired and these individuals do cost a pretty significant sum of money as it relates to payroll.

Most banks, lenders, and financial institutions are happy to provide loans and capital support to Montessori schools given their economic stability. This is especially true if the Montessori school is located in a wealthy area. If an individual is looking to raise capital for a new Montessori school and they are going to need a business plan. As with any other capital raising document, the business plan should include a three-year to five-year profit and loss statement, cash for analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. Special attention should be paid within the business plan to examining the economy, local market, competition, population density, population size, and median household income so to ensure that people can afford to send their kids to the Montessori school.

Beyond the business plan, a Montessori school marketing plan is also required. Within this document a focus on how to develop ongoing relationships with daycare centers is imperative. Many of these institutions thrive on referrals and their overall print and online marketing campaigns are kept somewhat limited. As it relates to maintaining an online presence, it is very important that the owner operator of a Montessori school maintain an expensive website that showcases the philosophy of Maria Montessori, hours of operation, tuition rates, and how to enroll a child in these programs. Additionally, many of these businesses will often run print advertisements in local and regional newspapers in order to ensure that parents of young children are aware of the Montessori schools opening.

Commonly, a Montessori school SWOT analysis is often completed as well. This analysis focuses on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are faced by these companies. As it relates to strengths, a Montessori school is able to generate highly predictable streams of revenue from the ongoing tuition fees charged to parents. For weaknesses, and as stated above – these companies have extremely high operating and overhead costs given the size of the facility and need for qualified teachers. As it relates to opportunities, many Montessori schools seek to expand the number of crazy peach provided that the facility can handle additional teachers and students. For threats, there is really nothing beyond a major economic recession that would impact the way that a Montessori school conducts business.

In closing, a Montessori school can be a great investment provided that the owner operator has a significant amount of experience in early childhood education. Additionally, it should be noted that there are always many licensing issues that need to be dealt with on an ongoing basis so that the school can remain accredited. Finally, special attention needs to be paid to the underlying costs given that these companies have very high running expenses. This is especially true as it relates to the ongoing liability insurance policies that need to be acquired in order to operate these businesses successfully and economically viable.
