Small Miracles™ Academy Franchises is a family of licensed child care centers in which children learn and grow in a safe, warm, and secure environment. We provide more access to high-quality child care at reasonable prices for middle-income families and profitable returns to its business owners.
Who Is Management?
The management of SMA has been operating child care centers since 2005, with 6 locations (3 corporate and 3 franchisee) throughout the DFW metroplex area. We franchised our proven profitable business model and introduced our first franchisee in 2011.
Why Buy A Child Care Franchise?
- Since the labor force has a high percentage of working mothers, the child care industry has emerged strong and steady. Even in tougher times, child care has remained resilient through economic ups and downs.
- Second to the mortgage, quality child care is the main priority of parents.
- The Wall Street Journal* reports that many of the child care businesses are full to capacity, with many parents signing up as soon as they know they are pregnant.
Our Unique Franchise Model
We focus on operational excellence and provides a framework for franchisees to deliver high-quality childcare, at competitively attractive pricing, while still maintaining an acceptable overall return to owner(s). This ability to provide the right quality, at the right price, and still deliver the right return, provides franchisees a significant competitive advantage in most markets.
Our Specific Marketing
SMA understands the needs of your center. Our imaginative and creative ideas based on years of experience will meet all of your advertising needs. Additionally, advertising and marketing methods are part of your training.
Our Unique Training
Your training usually takes two (2) months. One (1) month prior to your opening, you will be required to attend SMA Hands-on Training at our corporate headquarters. You will then receive training for one (1) month at your location. However, Small Miracles Academy believes that if two (2) months is not sufficient time to train a particular franchisee, that time may be extended.

I’ve decided that Small Miracles™ Academy (SMA) is the franchise for me. How do I Initiate the Purchase Process?
INITIAL FRANCHISE FEE: For a single operating unit you will be required to pay $50,000.
MONTHLY ROYALTY FEE: You will be required to pay monthly royalties of 7% of gross revenues.
FINANCING: We will assist the franchisee in obtaining financing through an SBA loan officer. The SBA requires that you must have approximately 15% – 30% of the total investment in liquid capital (“Initial Capital”). In most cases SBA will require collateral on the loan (generally equity in your home, real estate or investments).
Please fill out the Application and Background Check forms in your Marketing Package and return to your Franchise Consultant for an interview to be setup. If you are qualified, a FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) will be provided and the process will begin.
