Problem & Solution

Problem Worth Solving

The larger style is commercially run, typically a corporate franchise center. These facilities are both regional and national. Currently, the four largest child care facilities in the USA account for 29% of the market. There are also many different smaller locally run and owned faculties. While the largest facilities can host between 20-100 children, the locally run centers typically have a maximum capacity of 20 children.

Target Market

Market Size & Segments

Safe Kids Child Care has a focus on meeting the local need for child care services within the 10-mile radius of Lynn. Children are taken in flexibly on either a full-time or part-time basis.

Full-Time Working Couples

The company wants to establish a significantly large full-time regular client base in order to establish a healthy, consistent revenue base to ensure stability of the business. Customer relations are extremely important, as it is imperative to keep the parents pleased in order to keep their children in the daycare center.

Part-Time Workers / Drop-Ins

Part-time workers and drop-ins comprise approximately 20% of revenues. While this market is not the primary focus, sufficient flexibility to handle this secondary market is important to producing supplemental revenues.

Competition

Current Alternatives

There are over 300 child care providers in the local area. The larger commercial chain child care centers, such as KinderCare, have a majority of the market share. These larger chains compete well because of a good reputation among the consumer market. Safe Kids Child Care offers a lower staff to child ratio, which is appealing to most parents. Additionally, the company maintains child care fee levels that are 5-10% below the average of that of the large commercial chain child care fees.

Our Advantages

Child care competitive edge is the facility’s efforts in obtaining all appropriate licensing and certifications. Additionally, thorough pre-hire background screenings are performed on all individuals before hired for employment.
