Child Care franchise opportunities

Do you love working with little ones and dream of being your own boss? There has never been a better time to go for it. Demand is high for new ventures, as parents are keen to take advantage of government funding to support early years education and childcare.

There are around 59,500 childminders, 23,500 day nurseries, 9,600 preschools and 15,000 out-of-school childcare organisations in this £7.5 billion sector. Yet that's still not enough to meet demand for places.

However, running a childcare business is by no means easy – largely as legislation, insurance issues and day-to-day business management can be extremely complex. Independent, stand alone childcare providers face a lonely road. If you want to launch a business with the backing of an established and respected brand, a childcare franchise provides the perfect solution.

Companies who offer childcare franchises

Some of the most successful childcare companies are willing to share their business models with ambitious entrepreneurs. This includes Monkey Puzzle, Banana Moon and Little Cherubs nurseries, who all want to expand their franchise network.

Simply Out of School is one of the breakfast club, after school and holiday childcare providers which supports franchises, as does Sherpa out of school care. Or, for a more hands-off childcare business, there's Tinies Childcare Agency, which helps parents to find nannies, mothers' helps and babysitters.

Summary of childcare franchise advantages

Offering parents the assurance of a well-known name is not the only childcare franchise benefit. It is your own business, but you get a wealth of industry insights and experience to back you up. Childcare franchisers have buying power, meaning you get services and supplies at discounted prices and help with finding locations, dealing with planning regulations and training your team.

There are many strong reasons to start a childcare franchise. We would be happy to share these with you, and find the right one to suit you, to help your venture grow and prosper.
