Theory Preschools Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Family founded, business focused...

The Theory Preschool franchise emerged after having owned and operated preschools for more than a decade. During that time our team developed new educational methods, an innovative curriculum as well as sound business practices. Having taken the time as our preschools grew to create systems and plans for every aspect of our business, made the idea of franchising not only a feasible one, but the next logical step in our growth. Our corporate schools have surpassed expectations, continuing to grow even in times of economic downturn. We want to share our knowledge of this industry with people willing to take that leap into their next great adventure.

Should you want to explore our corporate schools please visit its website. Fusion Early Learning has been the perfect location for the research and development of our philosophy and methods. While it does not provide an exact picture of what our franchises look and feel like, at its core its heart beats the same, following all of the systems and practices, as well as testing new ones.
