Capital: Like any other business, Montessori school business also requires a decent investment. You need to arrange for the funds or approach the banks for the loan. The amount varies on the extent of your business. This investment covers various factors like land, infrastructure, staff, business plan, and other subsequent requirements.
Business Location: You can hire land or a ready to use site for your school. The area and structure depends on your budget and business plans. If you plan to hire on lease, you need to take care of the terms of the agreement. Before finalizing the site, it is advisable to study the norms that are laid by the education department of India and the municipal council of your city. The next step is the design of the construction and the play space. While planning the building, you can consider spaces like library, classrooms, and activity areas and so on. The stair case and corridors should be safe for kids.
Infrastructure: This includes classrooms, library, play equipments, and other arrangements. You need to ensure that you follow the guidelines to make safety arrangements, fire alarms, fire extinguishers and others to ensure the safety of kids. The toys and other equipments should also be safe for kids.
Staff and schedule: You need to study the Montessori curriculum in India and have an academic plan well in place and accordingly appoint trained and qualified teachers for your school.
Documentation: Once you are ready with everything in place, you need to work on the approval from the concerned education officials.
You are then all set to market your brand and Montessori pre-primary curriculum in and around your locality.
