Skids Franchise Business Opportunity

Safe Kids in Daily Supervision


SKIDS is New Zealand’s number one provider of before and after school care and holiday care for school-aged children. SKIDS stands for Safe Kids in Daily Supervision and its system provides a structured well balanced programme in a safe and secure environment, delivered by professional staff.


SKIDS are based in participating schools so that children are generally in familiar surroundings. The result is a business that generates huge loyalty from children and parents alike.

Under the dedicated guidance of Dawn Engelbrecht & Bev Parsons, SKIDS is based in 58 schools throughout New Zealand, providing a fantastic business opportunity to local franchisee as well as excellent care for over 2,000 children each day.
How much fun do you have at work? That’s the motto of SKIDS, and the question franchisors Dawn and Bev urge potential franchisees to ask themselves.


“Childcare is a growing industry,” says Dawn. “Several franchisees now own more than one site and there is continuing demand for SKIDS programmes throughout the country.
Prior franchising experience isn’t a prerequisite for this role, but it is recommended that you have prior business experience, adequate capital, an entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to the principles SKIDS value – trust, integrity and excellence.


If you feel like you’ve missed your calling in life, stuck in a boring dead end job and you love spending quality time with small children then SKIDS – finalists in the Westpac NZ Franchise awards 2007, 2008 and again in 2010 – may well be your answer.
