Our Franchise Owners come from all backgrounds, from managerial roles, education, sports and recreation, to customer-facing or service-based industries. But what they all share is a passion for working with children and a desire to drive the success of their own business.
sKids is where my passion meets my skill base. I’m a firm believer that it takes a village to raise a child, and for the kids who spend quite a lot of time with us, we’re a part of that village for their families.
Buying a franchise is a big step with lots of things to consider. We have a ‘path-to-ownership’ plan that outlines the key steps in the becoming part of sKids, making it easier to embark on your sKids journey.
