More children will get access to early childhood education (ECE) and the Coalition Government is taking financial pressure off providers, says Education Minister Chris Hipkins.
“Budget 2018 delivers the first universal cost adjustment for early learning services since 2008 when we were last in Government, plus an additional 62.5 million early learning hours over the next four years.
“For too long, early learning providers have been forced to do more with less, putting pressure on service quality and prices. We believe the young kids and parents they serve deserve better.

When selling a Childcare business where the owner also owns the property, it is common for the new business owner to try and negotiate a Right of First Refusal to purchase the property in future within the Deed of Lease.

The occupancy level of any childcare centre is the lifeblood for the business...

With the challenging bank finance situation we are currently experiencing, an effective way to achieve a sale at the best possible price, is for the seller (vendor) to help finance the sale.  Vendor finance is not new, but is now being used more often to achieve a business sale.

Vendor finance is where the seller agrees to allow a buyer to pay part of the purchase price on completion of the contract and the balance payable afterwards, based on pre agreed terms and conditions.

In a recent sale I have been involved with the buyer and their solicitor were placing a number of demands on the sellers during the due diligence process, expecting them to agree without hesitation to achieve a sale.

First Impressions Count. As soon as your staff leave the centre, they promote the name and branding of your business which will help to grow your client base and attract new enquiry, ultimately growing your business.

As a Childcare Business Broker I get to see a lot of businesses each month and a broad range of financial success between them.
