Changing Children's Futures

As a franchise owner of A School for the Mind and Body school, you’ll have the chance to impact children forever in positive ways! Research indicates children from all socioeconomic backgrounds reap real, long-term benefts from high- quality preschools, including achieving higher scores on standardized tests, gaining higher educational attainment and being less likely to need special education classes.1

Studies show benefits to the community too—lower rates of teen pregnancy, a decrease in crime and delinquency, and better jobs as adults.2

Beyond academics, A School for the Mind and Body also recognizes the critical need to help our children eat well and stay healthy. Recent government studies, as well as countless news stories, articles, and books, all point to the alarming and growing trend in childhood obesity. A serious health concern, data from recent surveys conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the prevalence of overweight children is increasing — even for those as young as age 2-5 years, where overweight levels have grown from 7% to nearly 14%!3

A School for the Mind and Body places just as much emphasis on nutrition and exercise as it does on other areas of learning, with the goal to educate children on the importance of taking care of their bodies now and in the future.

Changing Your Future

Early childhood education is an exciting business opportunity, meeting an immense need in today’s society! Participation in preschool education has grown steadily over past decades and is increasingly seen as a middle income essential.4

In fact, in most educated families, preschool education participation rates at age 4 are almost as high as kindergarten participation rates. 5

In recent years, nearly 70% of 4-year-olds and over 40% of 3-year-olds were enrolled in a preschool education program. 6

This translates to a total of nearly four million 3- and 4-year-olds who are enrolled in school, according to the U.S. Census Bureau — and the numbers continue to grow!

Our concept appeals to all good parents who value education, whether they are part of families where both parents both work outside the home, single parents, or even stay-at-home parents who choose our program to enhance their children’s character education.

For franchised school owners, our wide range of programs offers multiple potential revenue streams.
