Founded by Marianne Greenway, the KO-NEKT business is built on over 30 years of community development, and over 11 years development services for children, young people and their families.
KO-NEXT is an exciting new franchise model which enables motivated franchisees to run a children’s day care centre in their local community.
Designed for children between ages 5 to 18, our centres are for those young people with additional support needs (ASN) and their families. We develop an individual package of care for each child to meet their specific needs which is delivered in the centre on an ongoing basis.
Following the success of our first two centres, we have decided to expand our operations further. With an extensive demand for our support services, both parents and children are eager for our help, and we know we can make a huge impact to many families.
What We Do
KO-NEKT is a unique opportunity that support children and young people with Autism and Additional Support Needs and has no other competitors in the market place.
It offers an opportunity to create change in your local community as well as having the freedom of running your own business. As a franchisee we will support and guide you as well as offering ongoing business support to build your business, connect with families and recruit staff.
As the UK’s first ASN childcare franchise, we’re breaking new ground and looking for franchisees across the country to join us.
