Reason for Sale: 

Capacity for 90 kids, fully staffed and a standalone building with 3 playgrounds. This Omaha childcare and learning center is located within the boundaries of Westside Public Schools, a nationally-acclaimed public school district. The infant room has a secured waitlist through at least June of 2016. Growing enrollment by an additional 29 children and adding food program would add to profit. This center has been successfully caring for children for nearly 20 years. The staff includes an Assistant Director, 1 cook, 7 teachers and 3 part time floaters. This allows the current owner to manage the center by working roughly 15 hours per week maintaining the financials and basic business operations. A new owner could do the same or work onsite full-time to have a higher owner profit.

Cash flow of $189,701 and a profit margin of 32% was earned in 2014 while operating at only 2/3 of capacity. A new owner placing a 10% down payment of $52,400 on this business would receive a return on investment of 197% in the first year alone and profit $103,525 after expenses.
