Children’s education franchise to launch in UK

Trial franchisees needed to mould concept before launch

A franchise that helps children discover computers and technology through exploration is moving into the UK market for the first time.

The ComputerXplorers software, the brainchild of entrepreneur Nigel Toplis, aims to facilitate self-learning through computers for children aged three to 13 years old.

Younger children are encouraged to build confidence in literacy, maths, science, art and music, while older children use the software to improve their productivity and performance.

Toplis is currently looking for participants to trial ComputerXplorers before its official UK launch.

“We intend to introduce ComputerXplorers to the UK market through a select group of trial franchisees who will join us in testing the systems and processes and mould the concept over the next six months,” said Toplis, named Franchisor of the Year in 2003.

Toplis said he is initially seeking three people who can become ‘fully fledged’ owners working closely with him for only a nominal investment.

“ComputerXplorers is a new concept to the UK,” said Toplis. “There’s quite simply nothing else like it.”

ComputerXplorers UK is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
