Earn a fantastic return for 11 weeks of fun every year with Fun Fest Holiday Club
Fun Fest Holiday Club is different because it offers children a choice about how they spend their holidays.
With a menu of exciting activities to choose from every morning and afternoon, each child designs their own individual holiday programme. There are over 50 activities to suit every child, from Sports Action, Olympic Challenge, Mission Impossible and Great Outdoors to Master Chef, Pottery, Jewellery Making and Beauty School.
Fun Fest Holiday Club is Ofsted registered and run by qualified and experienced childcare practitioners, together with sports coaches and enthusiastic students. This creates an energetic and fun atmosphere balanced with a safe, controlled environment.
Its appeal is wider than most holiday clubs because it’s Ofsted registered for early years (3 and 4 years olds) and runs activities and outings aimed specifically at 11-15-year-olds, which bridges the gap between leaving junior school and having full independence. Its Ofsted registration also means it’s eligible for tax free childcare and can accept childcare vouchers, which reduces costs for working parents.
In addition, Fun Fest Holiday Club is registered as an approved high quality learning destination as assessed and quality assured by The Children’s University.
Sarah Beattie, Managing Director, explains; “Our aim is to provide parents with the perfect solution to their holiday childcare dilemmas - high quality and flexible childcare that suits all their children and which runs for full working days for the full duration of the school holidays.”
She believes there has never been a better time to provide holiday childcare due to unprecedented levels of demand, coupled with a lack of adequate provision across the UK. Government policy supports increased childcare provision at the same time as schools seek innovative ways to generate income.
Each Fun Fest Holiday Club has its own page on the www.fun-fest. co.uk website, where parents book and pay for their children’s chosen activities. This enables bookings, payments, registers, child information and parental permissions to be completed automatically, removing the administrative burden from franchisees.
Fun Fest Holiday Club has just found out it’s one of the finalists in the Best Website category of the Franchise Marketing Awards 2017.
Operating for nine years, the company has built an excellent reputation with Ofsted, schools, parents and children.
According to an Ofsted report in summer 2016: “Children gain confidence and good self-esteem in their interaction with staff and children.”
The Deputy Head at CTC Kingshurst School says: “We are very happy with the strong working relationship we have with the highly impressive Fun Fest. The company provides an exceptionally high level of customer service as a result of its enthusiastic and professional staff.”
Ms Ivory, a parent, says: “Freya loves coming to camp and really enjoys her day. There are lots of different activities to keep her entertained during the holidays. It’s great to know she is well taken care of while I am at work.”
Theo, aged 10, says: “I love coming here. The sports, cooking, the art and crafts - everything.”
By following the Fun Fest Holiday Club business model, franchisees are making impressive returns.
The company expects a single medium-sized club with 70 children attending per day to make the franchisee a profit of £30,000 per year (£2,700 per week) and a single large club with 120 children per day to make a profit of £65,000 per year (£4,500 per week). This is pre-tax profit based upon clubs operating for 11 weeks per year.
This is a flexible opportunity, as franchisees can choose whether to run a single club on a part-time basis to fit around other family, work or travel commitments or run more clubs and services to work and earn at a higher level.
Ryan Turner of Fun Fest Sutton says: “Having been involved with Fun Fest since its conception nine years ago, I’m in the privileged position of understanding the potential of being a Fun Fest franchisee more than most.
“The flexibility it offers is second to none. Originally, I put a couple of month’s hard work into set-up, but was then able to run it alongside a full-time job for two years while my Fun Fest grew.
“For relatively low start-up costs, the financial returns are now great enough to have allowed me to step away from full-time work, do some travelling and focus on maximising the potential of my Fun Fest territory.
“I don’t have childcare qualifications myself either. However, with the support on offer from the Fun Fest team and by employing a strong staff team, this has never been a problem. Fun Fest is a great opportunity for anyone looking for greater personal and financial independence.”
