Why franchise

The founders of Banana Moon Day Nursery believe that the fastest route to business success is franchising. However, the franchise must be tested, reliable and have the right franchisee in order for it to run successfully. At Banana Moon, we know what to expect from a new owner, and we are able to offer the highest level of support.

We want to help Banana Moon Nursery grow by sharing our brand and allowing dedicated and enthusiastic individuals the opportunity to run a successful business. Our unique business model is proven to provide children and parents with an amazing experience and promises the franchisee a successful business.

The childcare industry is a large and rapidly expanding industry sector, and by joining our brand a franchisee can own a profitable long-term business. We will provide franchisees with the support and direction they need to successfully operate their own Banana Moon Day Nursery, affording them the best opportunity for success. We like to ask two important questions of potential franchisees:

  1. Do you want to own your own business, but you’re unsure of where to start?
  2. Do you have enthusiasm, energy and want to earn a sizable income?

We are now offering the wonderful opportunity for suitable individuals to own their own a successful business under the highly respected Banana Moon brand. Our franchise has a proven business model and demonstrates consistency across all our locations, leading to happier children and parents across the board.

At Banana Moon we guarantee the happiness of parents and children by ensuring a safe and secure environment and high standards that prevail across all of our nurseries. We select our franchisees carefully, and only accept applicants who fit the our required standards.
