Once your pre-interview/conversation-form has been completed we will confirm the time and date for our informal conversation. A draft contract will be sent to you once you accept the quotation. You may read through the contract with your legal consultants or someone whose advice you trust. We will gladly answer any questions or address concerns you might have about the legal side of the business. When the formalities are ticked off, we start by preparing your marketing material, the Little Readers KIT, and your Centre is good to go! The process takes 6 weeks after the signing of the contract and the transfer of the Franchise fee.

Centres can be static or mobile, depending on your financial capacity, AS LONG AS THEY ARE SAFE and CHILD-FRIENDLY.

You can make an agreement with your local schools to provide you with an area for classes or you can even convert a minibus into a mobile centre. The Little Readers KITS are compact, commute-friendly and crazy-creative, loaded with heaps of fun, fun, fun. The online Little Readers Training videos cover all the elements of the Reading Programme and provide the Franchisee with practical experience on how to implement the programme.

Head Office provides you with online training videos: this means that the training and management of your Centre is as easy as the click of a button.


The only key requirement is that you have reliable Internet access for training purposes. You can manage your Centre ‘any place, anytime, anywhere’! And the best part for those of you who despise admin? No monthly reports!
