A better lifestyle with Stone Eden
  • Lifestyle

    cowsStone Eden is a family business, so we understand that you may want to develop a better balance between work and lifestyle in your new business – to best enjoy the fruits of a successful nursery with your own family.

    Our franchise is set up to help you achieve a better balance and lifestyle quickly because:

    • Our management format, support and systems mean you can quickly develop so that daily operations run efficiently, even if you are not there.
    • This soon means that you can afford to spend more hours or days away to suit your lifestyle.
    • We understand the importance of a good work and life balance, so we happily support franchisees with different business goals and ambitions.
    • We don’t mind how big or small you want to start or how much you want to grow, as long as you are dedicated to maintaining our very high standards of education and care.
    • So our franchise is designed so that you can get what you want out of life as well as out of your business.

    As well as affording you the time and potential profits to enjoy a better lifestyle, a Stone Eden nursery is also a very rewarding place to work:

    • We are a friendly, inclusive and supportive team to work with.
    • Our systems reduce the burden of administration on franchisees, making our business easier to run and more pleasant to work in.
    • Our assistance with the recruitment and training of your staff ensures you get a better and more able team, which makes the job of providing high standards much easier.
    • Our ongoing support of your team and their professional development means they are more likely to be loyal and to enjoy their jobs, making your workplace a happier one.
    • It is life-affirming to make such a positive difference in the lives of so many children and their families.
    Will Stone Eden suit you?

    Stone Eden offers franchisees the flexibility to choose the size of business they want, so it can be equally attractive to:

    • Husband and wife teams where one concentrates on business development and the other takes the role of non-contact Nursery Manager (this is how we started) in a 36 to 50 place nursery.
    • Investors that want to operate a nursery of any size (large or small) as a business investment, leaving day to day operations to their team and concentrating on business development (this is how we operate now).
    • Experienced nursery education and care professionals that are interested in applying their excellent experience in operations to their own business – with our support to develop their business-management skills and commercial flair.
    • Existing nurseries that want to become part of the growing Stone Eden brand so that they benefit by offering something even better than their local competition and enjoy the support of our head office team.

    You don’t need any experience in nursery education or care to be successful in our business (we didn’t have any when we started), we will train and support you with everything you need to learn.

    Ours is a management franchise anyway, where franchisees are responsible for the management and development of their business – whilst their team offers the actual childcare. So we are looking for franchisees with a good head for business, whatever their experience (or lack of it) in education.

    Even better, we offer all applicants that are seriously considering joining us a full 3-day taster-induction where you can learn more about our business and see it in action, before making your decision – so you can better understand if our franchise is right for you.

  • Caterpillars have had a lovely morning planting cress seeds. They have been using their fine motor skills to pick up the wool and sprinkle the seeds. They then added water to them to help them grow
