Could sKids be your new Buzz?
“There’s no better time to get involved in this highly resilient and rewarding industry”, says CEO Dawn Engelbrecht.
The global pandemic has caused financial struggle for many families, resulting in reduced hours and redundancies. While the effects of COVID-19 will continue to be felt for some time, it has also created new opportunities. If you’ve been affected by Covid-19 or are looking for a new direction and you love working with children, sKids could be the exciting next step in your career.
Safe Kids in Daily Supervision (sKids) is a before and after school programme for children aged 5-13. It also offers holiday programmes and a range of innovative programmes including music, sport, and cooking. There are 70 sKids franchises operating 170 centres at schools around New Zealand.
No better time
During lockdown all franchisees went the extra mile to support their clients and families, as well as using the time to upskill staff, said sKids CEO Dawn Engelbrecht. As a result of their dedication, every franchisee has kept their business running and has come back better than ever.
There’s no better time to get involved in this highly resilient and rewarding industry, says Engelbrecht. You’ll be able to take control of your future by being your own boss, with franchise opportunities in a number of parts of the country. “As New Zealand gets back on its feet after Covid-19 and people get back to work, the demand for sKids out-of-school care will grow even more.”
Make a difference
People from the tourism or hospitality sectors, and people who enjoy working with children, make great sKids franchisees. If you love working with people and children, and you’re ready to make a difference within your community, then sKids offers a fantastic opportunity from as little as $35,000. The company’s aim is to provide programmes and activities that parents can clearly see will be of benefit to their children’s education, health and wellbeing. “These give expanded opportunities to our franchisees, and present parents with something of value rather than just an ordinary after-school care service,” says Engelbrecht.
A proven business model
This has gained sKids an international following based on its innovative programmes and determination to have a positive impact upon children’s lives. It’s also a business model that has stood the test of time, having been in operation since 1996 and is recognised by the Ministry of Social Development as providing an essential service.
If you’re looking for a great business opportunity with low fixed costs in a growing industry, which brings joy to children and their families, sKids could be for you.
