Bright Kids
Franchise Opportunity

Welcome to Bright Kids Day Nurseries Ltd franchise

Thank you for showing interest in our franchise. If you enjoy working with children, then this is the franchise for you.

In 1994, Bel Oomerjee opened her first nursery and since then has successfully branched out across London and Peterborough with the core focus of the business being the delivery of quality childcare.

The inspiration for a career in childcare came through personal experience for Bel. After having her third child, she found all the local nurseries were full and had long waiting lists. With support from her husband, she embarked on her journey and opened her first thirty place nursery. Within no time, the nursery was full! Due to this success and local demand, she expanded and subsequently opened five nurseries by 2001 and opened up an additional four nurseries in East London.

A key ethos for any Bright Kids Nurseries setting is the continuation of professional development for all owners / managers. This was borne from Bel’s key passion driver of providing the best quality childcare possible. As such, Bel is a qualified Montessori teacher and gained an International Diploma in Montessori Teaching. She opened her first Montessori Nursery in London and gradually implemented the same method across all her settings. Bel’s qualifications also extend to her becoming an Assessor and Internal Verifier for assessing students in placements within a nursery setting as well as a qualified childcare Teacher Trainer.

By 2015, Bel had established over ten Ofsted approved nurseries and is a member of the National Day Nurseries Association and Early years Learning Alliance. In between managing her nurseries, Bel also acts as a childcare consultant for individuals in establishing their nurseries.

We have gained several nationally recognised certificates and accreditations and as a franchisee, we would expect you to gain similar recognised accreditations in order to uphold the amazing childcare service values that Bright Kids Nurseries are known for.

Location
Location is important. We will guide you to the type of property suitable for your nursery. We work closely with our property consultants and local estate agents to find a property that is suitable for you and your setting. You will be involved every step of the way on our journey to find you the most suitable building for your nursery.

Once a suitable premises has been found, we will assist with lease negotiations and project manage the completion of your nursery. This will include advising on; fixtures and fittings, furniture, office equipment and computer systems. Our team will help you design your nursery and guide you through the process from layout, colour schemes and flooring to achieve that Bright Kids Day Nurseries hallmark. Finally, we will help you to choose the right learning resources, so, when you open the doors to your nursery for the very first time, parents and children will be captivated with the feeling of home away from home!

Safety and Security
For peace of mind for all our parents, we insist on CCTV Nursery webcam installed in all our settings. We are so confident in our practices that we welcome parents to view their children in the rooms they are based in. The service is encrypted and only available to registered parents. CCTV security entry systems are also installed in all settings to ensure physical security of the building.

Education for children
Children are active learners, and they need to be stimulated in a safe, secure, and loving environment where their minds are constantly challenged. We follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Curriculum’. This is a national programme set by the Government for children aged from birth to 5 years old. We complete children’s learning journals online that Parents can have access to at any time and see how their child is developing and learning in our settings.

Recruitment
To complete the initial start-up of a Bright Kids Day Nurseries, you will need to employ key staff. We will support you in the recruiting and selection process and will continue to help you build your team through training and support.

Legal requirements
As a nursery provider you will be required to register with Ofsted (governing body regulated by the Department for Education). They register and approve all registrations – prior to opening – via a suitable interview process with you or your nominated person.

Your journey
As a franchisee, your journey begins upon the receipt of your Ofsted Registration Certificate. This will make you and your setting a bona fide member of the Bright Kids Day Nurseries family and will be the commencement of an exciting and successful relationship for both the Franchisee and Franchisor.
