TESTIMONIAL FROM Co. LOUTH FRANCHISEE MAUREEN HOEY, IRELAND

Junior Einsteins HQ are pleased to announce the launch of Junior Einsteins Science Club County Louth. Owner Operator Maureen Hoey is the franchisee and the driving force bringing WOW factor Science experiments to the children of Co Louth.

Message from Maureen; “I’m very excited to join the Junior Einsteins team. Before I became a franchisee I was aware of the super events offered by Junior Einsteins, however they weren’t available in Louth which was disappointing as I felt this was something new and different, I felt my children would love the content of the clubs & events.

When  I heard there were franchise opportunities available, I jumped at the chance, I’m now delighted to be bringing this service to the Louth area, it’s a fantastic way for children to learn about the world around them through STEAM subjects in a fun & exciting environment.

There are so many topics to cover & it’s so interesting both for adults & children alike, the shows & classes are very hands on, the children do the experiments themselves in a safe supervised environment, whilst questioning & learning why things work as they do. The children work as individuals as well as in groups which is also brilliant for their social skills & to top it all off it’s great fun.

Since launching in November 2019 we have been overwhelmed with the response & the number of inquiries, it’s been amazing. We’ve had a phenomenal uptake on after school clubs, parties & school shows, we want to continue to deliver first class STEAM clubs, parties & events all over Louth.

We are really enjoying the new venture, we’ve had wonderful support from Tracey & the Junior Einsteins team in Dublin. The work is very rewarding & there’s something new every day.  I am so happy to bring these brilliant services to the parents, children, schools & businesses of county Louth & look forward to meeting you all along the way.” – Maureen Hoey , Owner Operator Co Louth Franchise, Ireland
