“The best part about Tierra Encantada is that when your hub is full, the waiting list begins. Children stay until they go to kindergarten, resulting in long-term customers (and recurring sales). Waiting lists grow monthly, then years in length, leaving you with no need to advertise and turnkey business. The only space that opens every year is when kids ‘graduate’! “- Angel Ricardez, Director of Franchise Operations

Early education is one of the fastest growing markets
As our population continues to grow and more and more households with two parents join the workforce, the need for child care continues to increase. Families in urban areas have seen monthly waiting lists – if not years – for high quality child care. Tierra’s Minneapolis locations also have a waiting list of more than a year. With many markets that don’t offer language-based childcare options, Tierra not only addresses the enormous demand for this growing market, but also offers parents an option they enjoy. my child. Study after study has shown that learning a second language as a child offers enormous benefits. Children immersed in second language have been shown to have improved cognitive function, surpassing their monolingual peers on standardized speech and math tests, and the ability to understand other people’s point of view. Furthermore, the number of families looking for organic food has increased exponentially over the past decade. Tierra Encantada is ideally located to address both the growing need for child care and a growing awareness of the importance of organic food and language learning.
Your Tierra Encantada Center will be tailored to the urban community in which it will be located. It will have an area of at least 8,000 square feet with an outdoor space of at least 3,000 square feet and will have our branded colors and materials defined in our Building Guidelines.
The centers are designed for safety and feature comprehensive video surveillance, key card access for families and staff, as well as fire and security systems. Your facility is completely safe, 24 hours a day, and strangers cannot enter the building. This gives parents peace of mind knowing that an administrator walks – someone cannot just walk into the building. The comprehensive security system not only monitors the classrooms, but also the hallways, offices, kitchens and outside of the building – and records footage for weeks for reference if in doubt.
The classrooms are designed to take advantage of natural light, open spaces, and ensure learning and playing. Our Toddler, Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes have a unique design to encourage toilet independence and support toilet training – a feature that families love prefer. Our in-house gyms ensure kids have a time of active play throughout the day, no matter the weather.
