Information on Buying Childrens Franchises


If you want to run your own business and are good with kids, a childrens franchise could offer you the ideal starting point for your entrepreneurial career.

A childrens franchise is – put simply – a franchise which involves children. After-school sports clubs, kids barbers, childrens party businesses and adventure centres are all examples of childrens businesses. As a franchisee, you would be expected to operate a childrens business under the umbrella of a nationwide network, following the business model of the franchise carefully to ensure the best chances of success.

A background in teaching is not always required, although it can be highly beneficial. Overall, a sense of adventure and an ability to communicate with children is very important. 

If you are running a child care franchise there are a series of legal requirements that you must meet. You can ask the franchisor for more information on what legislation you need to comply with in order to start a child care franchise. The regulatory burden is usually lighter with other forms of childrens franchises, but most of the time you will still need to ensure that you and your staff are CRB checked. Guidance on when CRB checks are necessary can be found on the Disclosure & Barring Service (the new name for the CRB) website.
