Childcare Centers

Home > Services > Childcare Centers
Childcare is the fastest growing commercial real estate investment sector, and demand continues to outstrip supply. Childcare centres are a long-term, low-risk purchase that will deliver significant returns over time. Stratacorp offers a complete childcare development solution.


Research indicates an immediate high demand for childcare places across Australia, with continued growth is expected. Given this level of demand, it is anticipated that new, high-quality childcare centres will be operating at full capacity within the first few months of operation.


Since 2011 the childcare property market has seen a record increase nationally. The total number of children attending care has increased by 29.8% in this period, and demand continues to outstrip supply. Stratacorp has identified specific regions with very little current or potential future competition.


Childcare centres operate within a tight regulatory framework and are highly sought after assets in the market place. A number of factors continue to drive growth in the childcare sector, including:

Well-publicised scarcity of places;
Population growth, focus on return to work and parent-friendly policies;
Government support including benefit and childcare rebate funding;
62% long day care centres are run by private operators; and
Average hourly fees rising steadily at 7.2% since 2005.

Childcare centres are long-term, low-risk purchases that will deliver significant returns over time. Benefits to landlords include:

Valuation is not effected by residential market movement;
Proven early education provider in place;
Robust 15 to 28-year lease;
