About Us

Kids Collective was established in 2003 and provides out-of-school childcare for children between the ages of 3-11 years. We run Breakfast and After School Clubs during term-time and Holiday Clubs during school holidays.

Kids Collective is a quality out of school care provider, offering structured, planned and well managed child care services that complement what the children do in school. We provide children with the time and space in which to imagine, create and explore in a safe and caring environment and are committed meeting the needs of the busy working parent by offering a flexible childcare service.

Six out of eight of our clubs have been found ‘Outstanding’ in every area by Ofsted, with the remainder being graded overall ratings of ‘Good’. Kids Collective has won a number of regional awards for exceptional learning environments, staff development and child nutrition, including: Trafford’s ‘Healthy Club Awards’, Trafford’s ‘Inclusion Stamp’ Awards and were finalists in the 2017 Raring2go awards for ‘Best After School and Holiday Club’and ‘Highly Commended in the 2018 mumandworking Awards

About You

We are looking for franchisees who share our views about quality child care services and our passion about the business so that we can provide the Kids Collective service to the same high standards across the UK.

All of our franchisees and their employees must be child centred individuals who have passion for children and their welfare. We require that either the franchisee or a key member of staff hold a level 3 qualification in childcare or playwork. If as a potential franchisee you do not hold that qualification, you can employ a key worker that does and if you choose to do so, you can gain this qualification as you run the business.

You must go through a Criminal Record Check at Enhanced Disclosure level (DBS check) with the resulting report being clean of any and all criminal convictions and/or police warnings and a good credit rating. You also need to have excellent communication skills, be organised, self-motivated and have a determination to succeed.

You will be responsible for the day to day running of the business. This will involve planning the rotas and daily activities for the club, staff management, dealing with parents and children, financial management and generally following the franchise system. As anyone in business knows, one of the other secrets to business success is the ability to be resilient and solve any problems that are encountered as they arise. There is also an accounts and administration role which you will need to deal with effectively to ensure that the business is run smoothly and as part of this you will need to be computer literate and comfortable with basic software packages such as Word and Excel.

We have developed a business model that works with systems and procedures for all areas and we will train and support you in every activity until you are comfortable and confident in doing what is required to make the business a success.

“After many years working in the banking industry I was thrilled to join Kids Collective where I was able to work the hours that fit into my life. Training was provided and 3 years later I’m still there enjoying every minute of my time with the children.
Breakfast or After school, always brings a smile to my face as the children are such characters and being part of their lives and helping them to progress is a privilege and gives me great satisfaction.
I’ve met many lovely people, staff and parents alike since joining Kids Collective and being part of such a necessary profession is very fulfilling.”
