Many families struggle to find adequate programs for their children, creating an immense need for quality after-school options.

Whether you offer programs at local public or private schools, your educational franchise can provide viable solutions for many family types, including working parents who need after-school options all week long and stay-at-home parents who need help just one or two days per week. The iKids U program is flexible and convenient for all!

Budget cuts and staff shortages have forced many schools to discontinue their own after-school programs, but the need has not gone away. Schools love iKids U because it allows them to offer safe and high-quality programs for students who want or need after-school involvement.

The iKids U franchise support team will help you understand how to use marketing to connect with local school administrators and principals. You’ll contract with them for the right to offer services, and parents will pay you directly upon registration. Schools will look to offer your iKids U high-quality after-school services for a number of reasons.
