Safe Kids In Daily Supervision (sKids) a New Zealand-developed after-school care service, is bound for Britain.

John Geers (pictured), a London-based investor, has purchased the Master Franchise Rights to take sKids to 17,000 primary schools in England.

Due to recent legislation changes in England, all primary schools are required to have pre and after-school care services for children of working parents – making sKids services more valuable than ever.

"An after-school care company which dedicates itself to improving the outcomes for teachers and supplements good parenting standards, will go very well in England," said Geer.

"There are some larger operations which serve regions of England, but none have the level of professionalism which sKids offers.This is a whole new level of service.It is very thorough."

The sKids service will expand through England through the same franchise ownership system as in New Zealand.
