Having more than one childcare centre can open many new options in the future, but knowing how best to choose can become overwhelming. When it comes to selling the centre later, it is better to do so individually or to hand over the full portfolio?

I have been prompted to write this article by the many ongoing enquiries I receive from intending purchasers and developers of childcare centres about how to obtain a ‘Licence’ to operate a childcare centre. These potential childcare centre operators typically call when they are in the final stages of negotiations to purchase a currently operating centre or to lease an almost completed building. When I convey to them the processes of obtaining this ‘Licence’ and the timeframes involved, their excitement is usually replaced by disbelief. Surprisingly and, more often than not, the other stakeholders (e.g. vendors of the childcare centre in question) are also caught by surprise. The delays that result from their misconception can be frustrating and costly.
