With about 70 per cent of mothers in the UK reported to be in work, demand for nursery places continues to rise
In 2002, Mark and Rebecca Crosby established Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries in Hertfordshire; the dynamic husband and wife team, went on to launch the highly successful Franchise concept in 2005. Since then Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries has grown to over 60 settings nationwide, making it the UK’s largest childcare franchise network and the 3rd largest childcare provider overall. Year on year Monkey Puzzle franchises have made outstanding progress and now provide a combined capacity of some 4,000-child care places.
The ever-increasing demand for childcare, a proven franchise model, and years of day nurseries experience all contribute to the success of the company. Franchisees dreaming of a new career, running a thriving business that can generate a high financial return, as well as offering job satisfaction within a rewarding and highly respected sector, should look no further than Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries.
Growth continues at a brisk pace, as Nikki McReynolds, a marketing executive, who opened her 75 place nursery in Weybridge explains, “the first open day resulted in no less than 27 child registrations”. Newly contracted franchisees together with nursery expansions, further elevate the brand’s position in the market and enhance parental awareness.
Starting a new business can be daunting, and with this in mind the company’s investment in franchise development is considerable.
The extensive Head Office team comprising Market Researcher and Site-Finder, Project Manager/Nursery Designer, Marketing, Education and Training Co-ordinators, SEO specialist, Graphic Designer and Franchisee Support Managers, provide specialist support every step of the way.
This means that whatever your background, a successful and profitable business can be yours. Suki Nirak and Jay Rai, franchisees in Billericay since 2009, are opening their second, bigger nursery in Kingston-on- Thames. Before going into business Suki and Jay researched the sector and it became obvious that Monkey Puzzle was a ‘leading player in the sector with a sound package and effective training programme’
