Just watching this Franchise Show on Channel 7.
About two months ago, I attended the franchising expo in Mcec. They had a childcare franchise from Malaysia participating.
I said to myself, if I wanted to started a childcare related business in Melbourne, I would start my own, write my own curriculum and use the capital to buy the learning equipment and teaching resources that I had sourced myself.
Why do I want to pay money to a foreign company (never mind that I'm from Malaysia) when I've been working in the industry, and I understand the way it works?
I recently put in an application to a local Family Day Care scheme. I had just finished my interview with two of their Coordinators. On the same day, the coordinator informed me that they will come to my house in Truganina for an inspection. I've arranged for them to come in tomorrow on Monday morning.
Two fingers crossed and all the best!
