Excellent opportunity to own an established and reputable daycare center that has been serving the Calvert County market for over 25 years. The center is situated just off a primary thoroughfare and conveniently located in close proximity to several prominent towns. There is a total of 8 classrooms in the center allowing for individualized attention and an ideal pupil to teacher ratio. The center offers programs for infants (starting at 6 weeks) up to children through age 5 including before and after school programs for children up to 15 years old with a maximum capacity of 112 children in total. The center is registered in the Maryland Excels Program and is a Level 3 facility.
The center benefits from its long-standing status in the area and currently has a waiting list for children aged 6 weeks to 3 years old as well as school aged kids. Due to COVID-19, the center was operating at at reduced capacity for a number of months in 2020 which impacted the full year revenue and cash flow numbers. As of the Spring of 2021, enrollment stands at roughly two-thirds of the full capacity and close to the pre-COVID enrollment numbers. The business has had stable revenue and cash flow growth over the last three years with compliant licensing reports. The center is 100% privately paid. There is ample parking along with nicely equipped outdoor play areas.
After a decade of operating the business, the owner has decided to sell the center after relocating out of the area. The owner currently spends a limited amount of time each week largely focusing on general business management, organization, bookkeeping, and payroll. This represents an excellent opportunity to take over a well-run business with strong historical profitability that is run on a near absentee basis. The future owner could easily take on an active day-to-day management role if desired. The childcare industry has seen significant and sustained recent growth, so don’t miss out on the change to own a center with real estate that is a staple in the southern Maryland market.
*Please note, the Revenue and Cash Flow numbers claimed above are the average from 2017-2019 and are based on if the business was owner operated with the owner being the director even though the business is currently semi absentee run with a director in place. If the buyer wanted to keep the business operating with the director the average cash flow would be approx. $40k less to compensate the director.*
|Facilities:||The center occupies a 7,290 square foot standalone building situated just off a main thoroughfare in Calvert County, MD with excellent street visibility. The building sits on a 1.06 acre lot with an outdoor activity area/playground located just off the main building. There are 8 classrooms along with a full kitchen.|
|Competition:||Standard competition in the marketplace, but the name, reputation, and size of the center has made this center stand out above its competition.|
|Growth Potential:||The business has historically operated near full capacity, but enrollment numbers were down in 2020 due to COVID-19.

This presents the future owner with the ability to grow and expand the business based on current figures.|

|Seller Financing:||Seller is willing to provide financing based on the purchase price, terms and buyer qualifications.|
