Drama Kids Competitive Advantages
Drama Kids is an educational company where lifelong skills are developed. While classes are fun and entertaining for students – we also build life skills. The Drama Kids curriculum is designed to effectively develop speaking skills, acting skills, confidence, and self-esteem – all while the children are having serious fun! As a Franchiser Owner, all curriculum content, music, and lesson plans are provided to you for each lesson and summer camp program.
A few ways on how we differ from other afterschool children franchises:
- We provide a full school year program – over 30 lessons per school year.
- We serve all age groups from Kindergarten through High School.
- We provide completely different sets of lessons rotated over 13 years so a child will never repeat a lesson while they are enrolled with us – even if it’s for 13 years.
- Children can enroll at any time, assuming class space is available. We do not have “enrollment time” which limits enrollment options for families. This is a tremendous business advantage for our program over other child-related businesses.
- Parent Presentations and Participation days allow for parents to learn more about the educational nature of our activities.
- Stand-alone summer camps – keeps Drama Kids front and center over the summer. Our camps are full day, full week camps and we provide 10 camps spanning ages 4-15.
Drama Kids franchises are home-managed businesses for non-classroom related functions. During the school year, Drama Kids goes to where the kids are. This system provides excellent proximity to students, convenience to parents, and a very low cost structure for the franchise owner.
DKI Community Programs are held at community centers, retail facilities such as dance studios, or other halls that can be rented in the after-school hours. Business owners who currently operate a retail facility can easily add Drama Kids to their programs. Flat, open floor space is all that you need for a booming kids business!
Drama Kids In-School Programs are offered in schools as part of a school’s after school program usually in sponsorship with the school’s PTA or PTO. Either via DKI Community Programs, or its In School Program, Drama Kids’ unique flexibility to go where the kids are is a significant business advantage. Our delivery system offers a very low cost structure to the franchise owner and considerable scheduling and travel ease for parents and students.
Summer camps are one of the fastest growing segments of the child enrichment industry and Drama Kids Summer Camp programs are in “hot” demand. Drama Kids provides the curriculum for 10 separate week-long camps you offer on either a half-day or full-day basis.
Franchise Owner Training Advantage
Prior to the opening, all Franchise Owners are fully trained in all aspects of the business – hiring, management, teaching, marketing and administration. To make it easier, music CD’s, training DVD, operations manual, and a teachers’ manual are part of the basic training curriculum. Our 1st year New Franchise Owner Training schedule provides a one-week Initial Training Program followed by an on-site support visit during the first year.
