Earn a fantastic return for 11 weeks of fun every year with Fun Fest Holiday Club
School holidays are so exciting for children, but for working parents it can be stressful trying to organise childcare that suits the whole family.
Fun Fest Holiday Club has been designed to give children and parents exactly what they want from their holiday childcare.
Fun Fest Holiday Club empowers children by giving them a choice about how they spend their holidays. With a menu of 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 Nerf Gun Challenge, Go Karting, 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 and runs activities specifically for teens. 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 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.
By following the business model, franchisees are making impressive returns. A single medium-sized club with attendance of 70 children per day can make a profit of £30,000 per year (£2,700 per week) and a single large club with 120 children per day can make a profit of £65,000 per year (£4,500 per week). This is pre-tax profi t based upon clubs operating for 11 weeks per year.
This is a flexible opportunity, as franchisees can choose whether to run a single club as a part-time job to fi t around other family, work or travel commitments or whether to run more clubs and services to work and earn at a higher level. It’s for this reason that Fun Fest Franchising has just received a top franchising award from WorkingMums.
Ryan Turner of Fun Fest Sutton says: “Having been involved with Fun Fest since its conception 10 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. However, with the support on off er 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.”

“Children gain confidence and good self-esteem in their interaction with staff and children.” Ofsted, summer 2016.
