To maximise financial return we recommend our franchisees aim to teach at least 5 mornings a week and conduct some afternoon ELC sessions. 5 mornings a week with all age groups and reasonably full classes equates to around 150 students. A franchisee teaching around 150 students, conducting 4 ELC sessions a week and incurring the normal costs associated with a well-established franchise can expect an income before tax of around $70,000 for 39 teaching weeks a year (this is for part time hours, around 30 hours of work per week). Some marketing and enrolment administration is required during the school holidays between terms.
