Franchisee comments

“I thoroughly enjoyed the training. It was very well organised and very professional. We worked with real children as part of the course, which was fantastic. The idea of having experienced franchisees at the training was as valuable as the training itself. Spending time with completely new people like me and having people going back to do refreshers was really good. You get a strong feeling that everyone is going to help you succeed.” - Sonia Brocklehurst 

“We came into this for a lifestyle change and for flexibility. Our ultimate goal is to have a successful long-term, sustainable business. We didn’t leave our jobs to become tied to another one, so within 10 years we’ll carefully choose assistant managers to help run the centre for us”. – Jo Nguyen.
