Build a Business with Purpose.
Since we started our nanny franchise in 2005, we’ve built local professional teams across the country. These teams have accommodated parents with the help of both part-time or full-time sitters and nannies. With over 73 million children living in the U.S., the marketplace is perfect for our services.
Leadership is Key
Our babysitting franchise leadership team is made up of individuals with strong backgrounds in franchising and business. They know what it takes to get one of our franchises started out on solid footing.

The exact cost to open a CNST franchise will vary depending on factors like its size and your location. We estimate that the costs should range from $105,000 to $158,000. One of the best things about starting a franchise with CNST is that we’ve accounted for just about everything you’ll need to invest in order to get your childcare business going.
We don’t expect our franchisees to provide services themselves – that’s why this is a great opportunity for investors from just about any background. You’ll run your business by hiring and managing a team of qualified childcare professionals, keeping up-to-date on billing and paperwork, finding and retaining clients, and so forth. Because you’re in charge of day-to-day operations, you’ll likely find that you have more freedom than you would in a corporate setting.
The market for nanny and sitter services is developed, but rapidly evolving with the advance of technology. Parents are the primary target audience for these services while small to large companies and schools serve as secondary customers. Parents utilize customized nanny and sitting services for child care needed on an occasional or regular basis ranging from a 3-hour babysitting need to 40+ hours of care on a weekly basis. Small to large companies primarily utilize back-up care services which provide a temporary caregiver for employees that are unable to work due to short-term child care needs. These benefit packages are a growing segment for employers in a competitive marketplace to hire and retain talent and often are subsidized or sponsored entirely by the employer. Child care centers, Montessori’s and other schools, hotels and other hospitality companies, religious organizations, private clubs and special event organizers utilize our on-demand professional childcare to provide on-site childcare on an as needed basis during functions and for traveling families.
