Sarah Charles

Having run her own highly successful nursery and holiday club in her hometown of Solihull for nearly 20 years, Sarah entered the world of franchising in 2017 with the launch of the Fun Fest Holiday Club. The brand has expanded rapidly and there is now a network of 29 clubs across the UK.

Sarah used the COVID lockdowns as an opportunity to develop the Canopy Children’s Nurseries franchise brand and has already recruited its initial franchisees. The first franchisee-owned branches are taking root in Wembley Park and Shrewsbury, with further locations under development.

Sarah’s childcare services are driven by her fundamental belief that children should have the freedom to choose and the power to play. Her franchise business is characterised by a highly collaborative relationship with franchisees, supporting them to achieve the business of their dreams.
