We believe in equipping you to succeed in your new Ivybrook Academy Franchise.

When it comes to stepping into a franchise, the task may seem overwhelming. We believe that this does not have to be the case. We offer you the tools and support you need to both get off the ground, and to run your day to day operations.

Remember, we have gone through this process ourselves and are here to help you overcome any obstacles you may face! Our Ivybrook Academy franchise blueprint will help you with laying out the complete path from start to finish, meaning no hidden surprises along the way. The journey down the path to launching your new Ivybrook Academy should be enjoyable, not stressful.

We provide you with the tools and support you need for success including full curriculum, lesson plans, your FF & E (furniture, fixtures & equipment) list, marketing plan, advertising support, website listing, an intranet, and more.


Success could be out of reach without proper training and support.

We believe in making sure that everyone involved is thoroughly trained and equipped to help you in your endeavor as an Ivybrook Academy franchise holder. We feature on-site training in one of our existing corporate-run facilities. This offers you a firsthand look at what you might expect in a fully functioning facility. You will be able to interact with staff, observe children in the academic setting, and get a feel for the atmosphere you should expect in your own facility.

We also provide on-site training at your facility prior to opening. This allows us the chance to help train your staff on what they should expect, how to handle daily operations, and what to do in various situations that may arise. The training doesn’t stop there, however. We are available to help train new staff, offer insights into issues you may not feel up to speed on, and to help you answer any questions that may come up after the school opens.
