Tumble Tots has been operating a successful Franchise Network since 1979 and many franchisees have benefited from the opportunity. To see what they have to say about Tumble Tots and the difference being a Tumble Tots Franchisee has made to their lives, read on…

Franchising was an attractive option for us, as it gave us the opportunity to run our own business but with the safety net of an established brand.

Tumble Tots was our preferred choice because it had a strong brand name and we had seen the benefits our own children had gained from being involved in structured physical activity from a young age.

The fact that Tumble Tots were full members of the British Franchise Association and had a proven track record made our decision much easier and we felt our own experience and enthusiasm, along with the expertise and support of the Tumble Tots team made for a winning combination.

“Before I became involved with Tumble Tots I was a full time mum with three children at home; two step daughters aged 19 and 15 and my little girl, who was 5 and starting full time school. I had already taken her to the Tumble Tots classes and wanted to be a part of that environment. The kind of place where children have fun and learn, where the staff have a genuine interest in the little ones and you have all the holiday’s off to enjoy your family.

I started working for Tumble Tots as a leader in September of 2004 and loved every minute of my job, so when I found out that a local area had come up for sale I knew that this would be my vocation. 12 months after first joining Tumble Tots as a member of staff, I was now the owner of the Franchise for the Wilmslow and Macclesfield area.

So 2 years later, have I achieved my personal goal? Well I hadn’t really set myself any; I just take each challenge as it comes and enjoy myself. I think to truly love your job is a great ambition and one which I can say I have fulfilled”.

Franchise operation

Tumble Tots is a mobile business in which Franchisees provide the Tumble Tots programme at various centres within their agreed territory each week.

Tumble Tots is a registered trademark and Franchisees generate their income through the weekly session fees.

All children are required to join and become members of the National Tumble Tots Club. As part of the annual membership fee Tumble Tots members are automatically covered by personal accident insurance whilst attending sessions. Tumble Tots (UK) Limited arranges a comprehensive Insurance policy covering all aspects of the business.

Tumble Tots is a structured, active physical play programme for children from 6 months to 7 years. It has been designed to develop children’s motor skills of agility, balance and co-ordination during their formative years. At the same time, through the programme children develop their self-confidence, independence, self-discipline, self-worth and sense of security and identity. The international success of Tumble Tots has been built upon our commitment of developing children’s physical and social skills, and positive personality traits within a loving and caring environment.

Who we are looking for as a Franchisee

Experience of working with children is not essential, but running a business in a child environment requires individuals to enjoy working with children and their parents.

Like all businesses Tumble Tots is demanding and initially it is very much hands-on. However, for the right person, running your own business brings a degree of freedom, flexibility and a great deal of satisfaction.

To become a Tumble Tots Franchisee you need qualities that are common to all successful business people:

  • Confidence, enthusiasm and good interpersonal skills – Tumble Tots is a people business, are you friendly and a good communicator?

  • Self-motivation and commitment – To build the business and maintain the high standards of the programme.

  • Business minded – Are you able to identify and resolve difficulties, organise, plan and make decisions?

  • The ability to manage staff – Can you lead and motivate others?

  • Good health and fitness – Are you able to be on your feet most of the day, and load a van?

If the business sounds interesting and you possess these qualities, then Tumble Tots could well be the opportunity you’ve been looking for!
