The Most Rewarding Opportunity

Start a business that makes an impact

Join the World Leaders

For more than 10 years, IPC International Preschools has pioneered as the world's first international ECE franchise opportunity.  It is the only franchise opportunity which meets several national standards and is the most geographically represented ECE chain in the world making it a true opportunity in the international education market. 

International education is booming, owing in part to a strong demand for greater educational choice and an increase in bilingualism where English is increasingly being taught from a young age. 

With more than 90% of IPC schools remaining in business after 5 years, the IPC model is a proven model that outshines the industry average.

Join in 3 Steps

1.  Review the Minimum Requirements for Affiliation

All of the following requirements must be met in order to be considered as a candidate for IPC affiliation:

  1. If your country has a licensing structure for preschool centers or academic centers for children aged between 0 and 6, you have to obtain a license before applying to join the IPC.  If you join as a franchise, this requirement will be waived, but you may not start accepting enrollments until a license is granted. If your country does not have a licensing structure, then you have to demonstrate that you are capable of meeting the IPC Standards for Accreditation. 

  2. You will be able to demonstrate that you have the financial capability to operate a childcare business, including but not limited to the ability to recruit and retain suitably qualified and experienced staff and honour your IPC related expenses at all times.

  3. You have to agree to abide by the IPC Code of Ethical Conduct for Schools and ensure that your teachers abide by the IPC Code of Ethical Conduct for Teachers at all times.

  4. You have to acquire or identify a facility that is safe and suitable for the operation of a preschool.  The facility needs to meet all safety related requirements in the IPC Standards for Accreditation document. 

2.  Contact the IPC

Contact us with a detailed description of your plans or if you already own a preschool, provide as much information on how you think the IPC would be a good fit for your business.  We will determine your eligibility and provide you with a bespoke proposal that best fits your needs. 

3.  Review Agreements & Other Documents

Once you have discussed pricing and other key details, you will be presented with an agreement for review.  Only schools that reach an agreement with IPC can access IPC materials and begin to showcase their affiliation with IPC.
