Established Daycare in a Prime Location in Paarl
About this business for saleEstablished Daycare in a Prime Location in Paarl
This day-care in a prime location in Paarl was established in 1995 and is registered with the Western Cape Department of Social Development. The owners want to sell for personal reasons, after owning the business for more than six years. The owners are not involved in the day to day running of the day-care and rely on the principal. The current principal is only helping temporarily.
The day-care is located next to a top primary school in Paarl, for exceptionally low rental. The facilities require a coat of paint but a play area of about 400 sqm is a plus. The facility is approved for 44 children and currently employs a staff of 6 fulltime, including the principal and a cook, for 35 children. The capacity could potentially be increased by rearranging the layout.
The business is operated as a partnership and the books are done by an acquaintance. Expenses are recorded by the principal and receipts are handed over to the bookkeeper at irregular intervals. A full inventory of all assets is available to serious buyers. Included is a printer/copier on lease, which the buyer must take over and an existing Yellow pages advert.
The business has a Facebook page but no website. Marketing is done through pamphlet drops and distribution through schools in the area. Scope exists to improve marketing and through sprucing up the facilities to attract more children.
This is the ideal opportunity for someone with experience in the running of a day-care who can fix the shortcomings and reap the rewards.
