Frequently Asked Questions
MyVillage Franchises are licensed, home-based child care programs operating as MyVillage partners. Franchise educators have completed a 14-week onboarding and training program, passed all state-licensing requirements (allowing for larger program sizes of 6-12 children) and can be found searching the MyVillage.com website. MyVillage Pop Up programs are operated by local educators looking to step up in their community, now, to be able to more quickly provide families with a supported, trusted child care solution. Pop Up educators have subscribed to receiving MyVillage resources and support to run a smaller, legally-run program while they look to consider transitioning their career and Pop Up program to a MyVillage Franchise.
Pop Up programs are legally-run, individual home-based programs, providing care to only a small group of children. The exact number of children that can be enrolled in a MyVillage Pop Up program varies by state and county jurisdictions but typically falls within the range of caring for a maximum of 2-4 children at any time (number may include an educator's own children depending on state).
