Excellent opportunity to own an established and reputable daycare center that has been serving the Anne Arundel County market for over 30 years. The center is situated in Western Annapolis and in close proximity to Route 50. There is an adequate number of 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 with a maximum capacity of just over 80 children in total with the ability to increase capacity to 134 children. The center is registered in the Maryland Excels Program and is a Level 1 facility – a new owner can go through the steps to obtain a higher Excels level which will be beneficial to the new owner, the current owner just hasn’t taken the time to do so.

The center benefits from its long-standing reputation in the area and has been a well-known center in the market for decades. Due to COVID, the center was operating at at reduced capacity for much of 2020 which impacted the full year revenue and cash flow numbers. As of the January 2022, enrollment stands at 79 children, so almost 100% capacity which has shown the center has rebounded nicely from the pandemic. The business has otherwise shown stable revenue and cash flow numbers in recent years along with compliant licensing reports. There is ample parking along with nicely equipped outdoor play areas.

The owner currently has a director in place therefore allowing them to spend a limited amount of time each week at the center where they largely focus 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 next owner could easily take on an active day-to-day management role if desired where they would benefit from the cash flow claimed from being an owner operating director. The childcare industry has seen significant and sustained growth in the area in recent years, so don’t miss out on the chance to own a well-known center in a growing part of Anne Arundel County!

*Please note, the revenue and cash flow claimed is based on 2021 projections as an active owner operator. The asking price of the business was based on historic and current performance of the center where we have received a pre-qualification from an SBA Lender for the full asking price.

Growth Potential:The business has historically operated near full capacity, but enrollment numbers were down in 2020 due to COVID. The owners and staff have been working to bring the number of pupils back up to pre-COVID levels and the current enrollment level is very close to 100% capacity. This presents the future owner with the ability to grow and expand the business based on current figures and can be done by taking over adjoining space which will allow for an additional 53 kids.
