Brokerage Process


HINGE aims to build lasting relationships with each of our childcare clients so we can witness their sustained success long after the final transaction.

Before moving forward with the sale of your early education business, we like to identify your objectives, answer all of your pressing questions and walk you through the selling process.

Our brokers take the time to evaluate your current business and real estate situation—advising you on options and valuing your company in the current market. HINGE will not list a childcare business until an asking price has been mutually agreed upon and we are confident that viable buyers are available.

Once you decide to move forward with the sale, HINGE will assist in preparing due diligence items, negotiating offers and taking precautions to maintain confidentiality. 

At closing, you are the decision maker. We present non-binding letters of intent for consideration and will coordinate the signing of legal sale agreements. 

At HINGE Brokers, we make your early learning organization our priority and will never leave you behind during the process. We believe it is our unique understanding of the nuances of private educational businesses that has helped us deliver a positive selling experience to more than 200 childcare clients to date.

More Than a Broker

We aim to be our childcare clients' biggest support in the early education industry. Whether looking to buy, sell or grow your childcare business, HINGE is on a mission to help you be as strong as you can possibly be.





With more than 50 years of combined operational and brokerage experience in the national education environment, HINGE is uniquely qualified to lead a sale with care and confidence.

Open Communicators

We believe communication is extremely critical during the selling process. At HINGE, we take special care to create an open relationship with clients--coaching and counselling them at each step of the selling process to minimize any surprises.


HINGE has built strong relationships with the nation's most credible and experienced buyers. Also, our brokers exclusively manage each educational transaction, giving us the unparalleled ability to advise sellers on the current and potential value of companies within the private education industry.


Experienced buyers understand that maintaining confidentiality until both parties are satisfied with the sale is essential to a smooth transaction. HINGE provides a confidentiality agreement to prospective sellers before requesting any financial information and we require the same from prospective buyers during the process.
