For over 30 years, Mother Nature Science has been providing children between the ages of five and 12 with a range of fun, hands-on science programmes, and activities.
The company launched in the UK in 2007 and all its 200-plus lesson plans are linked to the national curriculum.
Mother Nature Science describes its chemistry, physics and biology sessions as ‘edutainment’, which are delivered via birthday parties; workshops; holiday science camps during the summer, Easter and Christmas school holidays; and one-hour term time science clubs that take place either before or after school.
It also organises corporate events, for example, for company family days or museum trips.
The mixed age sessions can cater for up to 20 children, with Mother Nature Science working on a 1:10 ratio of instructor and assistant to children.
All instructors and assistants are fully training by Mother Nature Science and are DBS checked.
The company is a provisional member of the British Franchise Association.
This is a home-based business where franchisees are granted exclusive rights to operate using the Mother Nature Science brand and franchise model in a designated trading territory.
Their role is to establish the business in the local area; recruit, train and manage a team of instructors and assistants to deliver the sessions; administer the business and promote the services on offer to parents, schools and businesses.
Once a franchisee has set up their first Mother Nature Science franchise business and is hitting pre-agreed financial targets, they have the option of expanding into additional territories with the ongoing support of the franchisor.
The ideal franchisee candidate, according to Mother Nature Science, is a people person who would enjoy working with children and is entrepreneurial, ambitious, organised, energetic, and self motivated.
No previous experience of teaching or science knowledge is required, as full training and ongoing support is provided.
This company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK. International regional and master franchises are available.
From a business point of view, the Mother Nature Science franchise has a number of attributes that make it a potentially sound investment for the right franchisee.
Demand is all year round and overheads are low because the franchise can be run from home. Mother Nature Science says the company has enjoyed year on growth, so demand is increasing as the brand becomes more established in the UK.
In addition, it quotes high profit margins of around 66 per cent for established franchises, while the potential for repeat business is high, as the franchise model is underpinned by Mother Nature Science’s sales cycle business model, which shows franchisees how to acquire, secure and maintain customers.
On top of this, Mother Nature Science franchisees inspire children to develop a love for the sciences and learning in general, while improving their confidence and boosting team working and social skills, thus teaching them important skills they can use throughout their lives.
The company’s headquarters are in London.

Like most franchises, this company’s franchisee recruitment process is structured to ensure candidates make the correct investment decision and the franchisor recruits the right individuals into its network.
The process begins with a discovery day, where prospective franchisees get to meet the franchisor and members of the head office support team face-to-face. This provides an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the franchise and is an important part of your research.
If you decide you wish to invest in the franchise, you can then secure your exclusive franchise territory.
Before becoming a Mother Nature Science franchisee, a franchise agreement must be signed by the franchisee and franchisor, which sets out the rights and obligations of both parties.
This is a legally binding document, so individuals are advised to have it reviewed by a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of the franchise industry before signing it. While you may not be able to change the terms and conditions of the agreement on offer, a franchise lawyer will be able to identify any unusual clauses.
Once the franchise agreement is signed and the franchise fee is paid, it’s time to start training.
