Our Story

The idea for Canopy Children’s Nurseries was sown two decades ago when our founder, Sarah Charles, was researching childcare for her own babies and decided to create the nursery that she dreamed of. Since then she has cultivated 3 nurseries in the Solihull area where the common theme has been a culture of excellence and a celebration of the magic moments in childhood.

Sarah and her hand-picked team have used their extensive knowledge and experience to develop Canopy Children’s Nurseries so that more discerning parents across the country will have the chance to see their children blossom and reach their potential in our exceptional environments.

A Canopy Children’s Nursery can be set up as a franchise business which means that it is possible for you to start your own Canopy Nursery with the support and guidance of the Canopy team.

We will only accept applications from exceptional candidates who are as committed to quality and excellence in everything they do.

How it works

You would set up, own and run a Canopy Children’s Nursery in a mutually agreed location, using the Canopy trademark, branding and business model. Our team would train you, support you and provide the central services to enable you to do this efficiently and effectively. There is an initial set-up cost and an ongoing franchise fee.

  • Brand and Marketing Package
  • Curriculum and Operations Training
  • Regulatory Licence, (coaching training and support to obtain the regulatory licence)

Owning a franchise enables you to start your own business with a reduced level of risk and stress. You know exactly what the finished brand and business will look like, you understand how it performs financially and the reason why it is successful.

You are provided with the training, tools, systems and contacts to enable you to replicate this business at a suitable location near you. It makes life so much easier than starting from scratch because you have a partner to guide you who is equally invested in making your business successful.
