Franchise Talk: Top Education Franchises to Consider this Back-to-School Season

Updated: Aug 22, 2020

As seen on Entrepreneur.com.ph:

Back-to-school season can be exciting and stressful at the same time. For most kids, this may be challenging if they are entering a transition year or transferring to a new school. Parents are also challenged to reinstate routines after the summer break and to arrange for new activities and schedules, including facing the resumption of homework.

With Filipinos spending over 15 percent of their monthly household budget for education, the education sector in the Philippines will continue to flourish. And with the introduction of K-12, new or foreign approaches in teaching techniques are being introduced. School curriculums have now started integrating subjects on robotics, computer coding and even Singapore Mathematics. The non-traditional learning centers in the Philippines have evolved from being regular tutorial centers to enrichment centers that aim to improve students’ aptitude in a specific subject through a tailor-fit program based on his/her aptitude test result.

But in investing in a school or tutorial franchise, having enough capital is just secondary to having genuine passion to educate and a keen interest in progressively working with students. To run a school requires a lot of effort and patience.

Here are some of the best education franchise brands in the country today:

1. Bricks 4 Kidz

Bricks 4 Kidz is a global education franchise where children “LEARN, BUILD and PLAY.” The fun atmosphere in playing and learning with LEGO Bricks stimulates each kid’s curiosity and creativity. The Bricks 4 Kidz classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education, built around proprietary model plans created by engineers and architects.

The Bricks 4 Kidz franchise offers aspiring franchisees flexible center set-ups. For one, franchisees can operate a mobile Bricks 4 Kidz business by just integrating it to schools as an after-class activity, thus renting a space will not necessarily be required, allowing for increased profits.
