Harmony at Home: Owning Your Own Childcare Business

The story of working mum, Philippa Day, who runs her own successful childcare business, Harmony at Home Berkshire.

March 04, 2016 // Franchising.com // Creating your own business can be tough, especially during the early start-up phase. Recent figures suggest that around 50% of new businesses in the UK fail within the first five years - and, those that succeed, can often take years to become profitable. This makes starting your own business a daunting prospect for most parents - especially busy mums. However, there is an alternative to starting your business from scratch.

Philippa Day, mother of two, was a professional Nanny for twenty years, with work experience in the UK and overseas. But, when her own children started school, in 2012, her dream was to be her own boss. After considerable research on the subject, Philippa decided to purchase the Berkshire Division of the International Nanny Agency Harmony at Home in 2014 - and she hasn’t looked back since! After recovering her initial investment within four months, Philippa now has a turnover that exceeds all expectations. It’s taken a great deal of passion and a tremendous amount of hard work, but the benefits of a ready-made business have been enormous - both financially as well as for balancing the often conflicting demands of work and family life.

“As far as businesses in a box go, this couldn’t be better,” says Philippa Day.
