About the franchise

What is the Stone Eden franchise?
  • About the franchise

    CIMG4398Stone Eden is a successful nursery school. We provide a very high standard of education and care to babies from 3 months, toddlers 2 to 3 years and to preschool children from 3 to 5 years old.

    Rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted; for more than ten years we have provided a stimulating and enjoyable preschool experience that has proven to nurture the future success of children of all abilities and temperaments.

    At the same time, Stone Eden was founded on strong commercial grounds because we believe that you can only offer the best nursery environment if the business that supports it is profitable and sustainable.

    The Stone Eden franchise gives you the opportunity to replicate our success with your own nursery, which will offer the best nursery care because it can be sustained by an excellent return on your investment.

    Even the smallest 36-place unit can target around £350,000 to £370,000+ annual turnover and we have already proven a larger unit can generate over £1million.

    Our history

    Stone Eden started in 2005 and has traded profitably ever since, at the same time as becoming recognised as a leading provider of consistently high education and care.

    We started with small premises that provided 36 places in three rooms; each dedicated to one of the age ranges – babies from 3 months, toddlers 2-3 and preschool children 3 to 5 – as well as providing a permanently staffed reception and dedicated kitchen.

    We were so successful in our first nursery that we moved to larger premises after just three years – in 2008.

    Over the years we have extended our second site several times with extensions, new dedicated buildings and state of the art facilities, so that we now cater for more than 180 daily places and a register of some 350 children.

    Our turnover now exceeds £1m, with excellent returns.

    We have always been a family business and intend to stay that way. This benefits franchisees in many ways, including:

    • Direct support by family-member directors who are more interested in your success and achievement of the highest standards than a work-a-day franchise manager would be.
    • More interest in developing our national network steadily with similar-minded partners that will maintain our standards than just opening more nurseries.
    • More stability as you grow your business because neither the ownership nor the management of the franchise will change.
    • A better mutually-rewarding relationship between real people that care about what you want to achieve.

    We have proven the success of Stone Eden and will help ensure you enjoy the same in your own Stone Eden business.

  • The children in Pre-school were very fortunate to see some Frogs today. They discussed how a Frog develops from a tadpole and how they feel and look. Next they will be looking at how a Caterpillar turns into a Butterfly.
  • Spring is here! Pre-school and Toddlers have been planting some beautiful flowers today on our orchard. The boys and girls have then made their own maps to find a fairy that has been hiding in the trees and searching for fairy mushrooms and acorns as clues. We have also been using the chalk boards to make marks and playing with the cars.
  • Wow look how well Dolphins can cut with scissors, a simple fine motor skills activity that keeps them busy for a long time and they were very proud of their achievments! Well done all ✂️✂️

  • Caterpillars have enjoyed washing the babies today. Staff and children interacted well and discussed the different body parts and facial features. The boys and girls pointed out where the eyes, nose and mouth were.
  • What a lovely day to be playing outside 🌞
  • Preschool really enjoyed time on the orchard this afternoon planting some plants in this glorious weather, spring is on its way. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
  • This morning in Caterpillars, Aimee carried out a baking activity with the children. The children were taking turns in adding the different ingredients to the bowl. They helped to mix the ingredients together and loved when it turned to dough
