If you already have preschool students, one of the best ways to make more money is to add extracurricular classes in your preschool. Here are some great ideas of how to add them and which ones to add.
Should You Offer Classes Just For Your Preschoolers?
You have a space in your garage, or you have your own preschool building—with a lease or mortgage due on the first of every month. Why not put that space to use for more hours than just your preschool classes? Depending on your available space, you could offer one or more classes each night. Chances are that the $40-$100 per month per student you could get for signing your preschool families up for extracurricular classes or lessons could certainly help out.
And you don’t have to limit your classes to just your preschoolers! Your preschooler’s parents are probably looking for classes for their elementary school children as well so you might as well offer them in your facilities.
Ideas For Extra Curricular Classes To Add To Your Preschool
What kinds of classes should you offer? One of the best ways to make that decision is to ask your preschool families what kinds of classes they would be interested in. Here are some possibilities:
But what if you have no idea how to play the ukulele or anything about STEM? Hire a teacher! Find someone who does know how to teach those things and work out a deal with them to provide the space and split the profits after costs.
Getting Your Parents To Register For Your Extra Curricular Classes
How do you get your parents to sign their children up for these classes? As you are registering their preschoolers, say something like “Oh by the way, we also offer a 30-minute dance class on Tuesday afternoons at 4:00 would you like to enroll in that too?” It’s like the checkout stand at the grocery store–a goodie that’s hard to resist.
If you offer a referral fee to your preschool families for referring students to your extra-curricular activities your classes will fill up quickly and they will be a profitable addition to your preschool.
