#TipTuesday – run your own Holiday Camp

As a parent myself, I know how sought after high quality childcare is in the school holidays! One that’s high-quality but also doesn’t break the bank! Once that as a mum or dad, you can be rest assured that your child is having a great time in a safe, rewarding environment!

That’s why it is worth in excess of £7bn a year in the UK alone and this year we are on the look out for like-minded, determined and passionate individuals to join us on our campaign to share our love of high-quality childcare with parents – just like us!

WE’LL HELP YOU ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS

Since 2012, The Strings Club has grown exponentially from one Holiday Camp of six children, to inspiring over 25,000 in 2018 through our range of multi award-winning programmes that inspire children through music.

Using our tried and tested model you are able to achieve:

  • Up to £8K per school holiday within 2-4 years.
  • Profitable operations within 3-6 months
  • 100% increase in revenue within 24 months
  • Turnover in excess of £70k in just 2 years

If you’d like more information please get in touch on 0121 296 9204 Mon-Fri, or email us.

 

Summer week 6, 27-30 Aug – workshops announced

We’re so close now and we’ve not got long before we break up! We’re excited about what we will be doing over the summer holidays.

We’ve got an incredible schedule of specially created workshops over the 6 weeks ensuring your child does something different every day they are with us and will be engaged and having fun right up to pick up time.

Fairies & Dragons

This week we will be exploring the mythical and magical world of fairytales, but not just any old fairytales, oh no, we’re talking up-beat, adventurous, empowering fairytales; fit for purpose to inspire and uplift a whole new generation. From Midsummer’s night murder to How to Train Your Dragon and the international sensation Shrek, this will be a week packed full of imagination, creativity and performance. We hope you’re ready to turn reality into fantasy!

Pick of the week: Shrek, Tuesday 27th August

Sport Beat

This energetic workshop is truly action-packed and fun-filled! Using a song from a popular movie “Shrek”, children will be interpreting the words from the song using their bodies and playing a game of Shrek tag. Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!

Sounds & Colours

Following on from the first workshop, the children will be getting all warmed up by playing Shrek Tag and then get their creative caps on! Using the story of “Shrek”, the children will be using their creativity to design and bring to life their very own fold-a-creature and dragon puppet – all the while listening to music from the films.

Our Holiday Camps for children aged 4-11 are running from 22nd of July for 6 weeks with half days from £20. If you’d like to find out more take a look at our Holiday Camps page.

Continuing the momentum over the summer

The summer holiday is an opportunity for a bit of a break, a chance to relax and unwind and to enjoy some time with our children. Well deserved I might add!

But if you are anything like me you will also be wondering how best to approach the summer holidays for your child. 6 weeks is a long time, especially when you are young, and avoiding the ‘summer slump’ is high on the agenda for all of us.

How do I help my child maintain their hard work at school this year? What will they enjoy and be engaged with across 6 weeks? And is it a straight choice between having fun and learning over the whole holiday?

With the schools breaking up in only a matter of weeks our Head Office Team and I thought we would look at ways to continue the momentum across the summer ensuring your child starts the new academic year refreshed and ready to go.

Go to a concert

With the summer bringing warmer days it is a great time to get out and see live music near you. Inspiration comes in many different forms and we think there is no better way to first experience the joys than listening to a range of inspirational pieces of music. Bandstands are sure to be buzzing with the sounds of brass and your local big school will have their end of year performances. Have you heard about our Quaver Concerts? They’re a great way to hear new music in a fun and relaxed atmosphere helping to further inspire your child this summer in Birmingham and London.

Continue to progress at Holiday Camp

Being a music teacher I have seen first hand the difference learning an instrument has on children. It is proven to have a positive impact on everything from mental wellbeing, confidence and educational attainment and it’s the reason I started The Strings Club all those years ago.

The Strings Club Holiday Camps combine the best of music education and childcare. And what enables our multi award-winning Holiday Camps to stand proudly apart from other childcare providers is our passion and dedication in promoting the learning and development of all children in our care.

Our team of the UK’s best strings teachers and childcare professionals are trained, experienced and caring enabling you to rest easy that your child is happy, safe, having lots of fun and taking another step on their way to fulfilling their potential.

Book to suit your family with half days from £20 and sibling discount available.

#FranchiseFriday – invest in an established franchise

A BUSINESS WELL ESTABLISHED AND GROWING

Purchasing an existing business means you are able to start from an advanced position, one with a large and loyal customer base, an established brand, great awareness and an existing annual income.

The Strings Club has some excellent opportunities in London and Birmingham to purchase an existing franchise with actual income ranging from £25k to £90k. These franchises come with extension options and the potential to reach £200k+ quickly and organically. They’d suit either an arms-length investor or someone who wanted to be part of the day to day running on site at the events. All franchisees benefit from our Operational Model to help you learn the ropes quickly and supporting business strategy documents allowing the acquisition to be seamless.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITIES

We’ve put together a great visual guide, our Franchise Pack, which is designed to show you how passionate we are about what we do, and how we can support new franchisees in making their own success story.

If you are considering a change in direction you might be looking for an attractive going concern to invest your time and energy into. That’s understandable – you will benefit from the hard work that has come before. Download our Franchise Pack today and make 2019 your year with The Strings Club.

New to us? Bring a friend for free!

From experience we know that to get the best from any experience it helps a lot if a child is happy, settled, and feels at home.

It is difficult to put yourself out there. Doing something brand new is sometimes a bigger deal than a few words can give justice to. (Don’t think it goes unnoticed little people out there!)

Our amazing team always ensures every child feels welcome and provides the platform for them to gain confidence and make friends throughout the week, but for some younger children we understand the thought of the initial step through the door can be a bit too much.

We decided the best thing to do would be to invite your friends along too. For free!

BRING A FRIEND FOR FREE THIS SUMMER!

If you are new to The Strings Club and considering inspiring your child through music at Half Term you can bring along your child’s friend for free. If you have two children, bring two friends!

We know that everyone will have a wonderful time at Camp and hope that this offer will ensure that even the youngest and the most shy children get to experience our events and be inspired through music.

If you’d like to book or find out more give us a call on 0121 296 9204 or email info@thestringsclub.org.

This offer is limited by availability and on a first come first served basis.

Our Holiday Camps for children aged 4-11 are running for 6 weeks over the summer starting 22nd July, with half days from £20. If you’d like to find out more take a look at our Holiday Camps page.

We’ve got an incredible schedule of specially created workshops over the 6 weeks ensuring your child does something different every day they are with us and will be engaged and having fun right up to pick up time.

Disney

This week we are going the distance with a guaranteed favourite: Disney-themed, where dreams will come true (and be brought to life)! There will be something for everyone to get excited about as we venture to the magical worlds of “Toy Story”, “Inside Out” and “Alice in Wonderland”, to name just a few. Get ready to perform, make and move to some classic and new tunes.

Pick of the week: Toy Story, Wednesday 21st August

Big Sing Song

“You’ve Got A Friend In Me” is known to many as a joyful song of lasting friendship. What makes a good friend? Learning to feel valued for our individuality is fundamental to developing into confident individuals. Using this popular song from “Toy Story”, we will be taking your child on a musical journey – singing and dancing on the way!

Imagination Station

Get ready to blast off in our wonderfully creative “Toy Story” workshop! This magical workshop will open the door to endless possibilities for your child – they’ll be given the chance to design their own rocket, planet and maybe even aliens. This is not one to be missed!

Here’s why you should be joining us this summer

Yikes, not long until the summer holidays arrive! Summer can be worrisome. With so many weeks of childcare needed in one go it is definitely not your usual holiday and brings with it extra questions about the activities your child will take part in.

Will my child be engaged for such long periods of time without being bored? This is such a big period of their life, will they benefit from their experiences and continue their development? Will they have fun and be happy there? And quite simply, can our family afford the cost?!

As parents ourselves we have experienced first hand all of these thoughts. And best of all, we have found the solutions!

Here are the top 4 reasons why you can be confident a Camp with The Strings Club is the place for your child this summer:

1 A new amazing theme every week

Each week at Camp we have an amazing new theme to help us have fun and explore music, and over the summer hols that means we have 6 themes guaranteed to inspire your child and ensure they have a new creative experience every day and week they are with us.

2 Your child’s development is key

What enables our award-winning Holiday Camps to stand proudly apart from other childcare providers is our passion and dedication in promoting the learning and development of all children in our care. We aim to guide the development of every child’s capabilities and skills on a daily basis to ensure that they truly benefit from our multi award-winning, Ofsted registered Holiday Camps.

3 100% of children would recommend us!

The opinions that matter the most are those of the characters who we have so much fun with every event – the mini maestros themselves! Each Camp this year has grown through word of mouth because every child who has attended has said they would recommend us to their friends, simply because they have such a good time!

4 Ways to save

Childcare can be expensive, so to help we have introduced a new way to save money. Each Camp we have a super simple offer – recommend a friend to us* and for each friend who books we will give you a free day of childcare. If you have 5 friends that will give you a free week and save you up to £225! All you have to do is ask your friends to mention your name when they book.

* To take part in this offer you need to have already booked with us.
