Why buy a childcare business?

Childcare centres are now Australia’s fastest growing commercial real estate investment.

Unprecedented growth in the sector is outpacing all other real estate, creating what The West Australian calls a ‘golden child’ of property investment.

The single income household is becoming a rarity, as most couples head to the workplace. These families are creating a gigantic need for childcare centres in nearly every geographic area of the country. 


At the end of the day, the financial benefit of a dual-income household outweighs the burden of daycare costs. 

It doesn’t hurt that the bulk of government spending on childcare — $8.8 billion in 2018 to 2019 — was issued directly to childcare operators. Ipso facto, childcare businesses can always pay the rent.
