This Out-of-School Care Centre (OSC) is a fully licensed and accredited before-and-after-school care centre by the Province of Alberta for 42 children. It is located just outside of Calgary. As Alberta's economy is recovering and more and more parents are going back to work, the demand for child care services is growing.
This OSC has been in business for just over two years. The accreditation process took 15 months and was completed in March of 2017. The centre is at over 50% capacity and has plenty of room for growth.
The OSC operates out of leased premises and is currently run by an absentee owner, relying on 2-3 full-time employees who would like to stay with the business. The centre is open Monday to Friday and follows the local school schedule.
All the leg work for this outstanding opportunity has already been done by the seller. The business is positioned for sale on the basis of a share-sale transaction to accommodate a smooth transition and to avoid any interruption in licensing and accreditation.
The seller has agreed to assist the incoming buyer with one month of training to allow for a smooth ownership transfer, and will also be available for consultation afterwards. A small amount of seller financing may be available to a qualified buyer.
