Franchising is a network of interdependent businesses that permits a number of business people to share a brand identification, a proven marketing system and a successful method of doing business. In simple terms it is bringing to the market a business model, which has not only been tried and tested, but has a proven track record of being successful, allowing multiple individuals to trade under the same brand.

As a franchisee you are buying a franchise, whereas in reality you are investing your assets in a system to utilise an established brand name, operating system and the benefit of ongoing support. Each individual business owner operating under the Simonsays! brand will share the responsibility for quality and consistency that defines each individual franchise and ensures repeat business and growth across the network.

We are proud of our franchise model and are setting our sights on locations across the UK and internationally. We know it is a proven business model. If you believe you have the necessary ambition and drive to succeed with a business that offers a host of opportunities then we would like to hear from you, on 0115 9771030.

Our Childcare Franchise Opportunity


We have a well-established system that aims for each of our Franchisees to thoroughly replicate the highly successful Simonsays! business model. We are literally there from the start right through to your launch. We will provide publicity which creates local awareness ahead of opening day.

Our support obligations continue by means of a substantial package of management services, including central accounting for Franchisees’, positive cash-flow and regular meetings to guide on all operational matters and optimum profitability.

Simonsays! will provide in house support towards each franchisee’s online presence ensuring your new business will be visible from day one of trading with ongoing business mentoring.


In the UK children’s Afterschool clubs are not all registered with Oftsed dependant on the hours they will be operating. However, it is a requirement by Simonsays! After School clubs that all have to be approved by the regulator Ofsted whose demanding requirements are comprehensively inspected with the expectation of rating outcomes of “Good or Outstanding”. Consequently training is of the essence and our programme is based on substantial practical knowledge.

The Concept

We run to the highest standards with a distinctive ambience in which children thrive and parents have complete confidence. A business with a clearly identifiable long-term future, the return on investment appears excellent, based on a very healthy trading track record.
