Our Onboarding Team Members will consult with you as you complete necessary steps such as registration, licensing, and location inspections.

Step #6: Perfect Your Plan

It’s almost time to launch! But first, you’ll need to create and finalize a detailed plan for your micro-classroom. You’ll brainstorm ways to brand, market, and manage you business as you prepare to recruit students. Don’t worry - an OTM will be there to coach you through this phase too.

Step #7: Recruit and Enroll

Now it’s time to get out there and land your first student! You’ll use the skills that you learned from the planning phase to spread the word about your business. This will also include setting up your website and other digital tools to help parents easily enroll online.
