Tumble Tots is offering exciting and rewarding self-employment opportunities working with children across the UK.
By investing in a franchise, you can be your own boss and work flexibly around your family and lifestyle whilst earning an income.
Franchisees will also benefit from the job satisfaction of enriching the lives of the families who attend classes by helping children to develop their physical, social, and cognitive skills.
No experience is required as full training and ongoing support is provided; however, an ideal candidate will benefit from the following skills:
Tumble Tots is a mobile franchise which requires a van to take and setup our specially designed wooden and foam equipment to various centres, therefore a certain level of physical fitness and a driving license is required.
Our programme consists of five classes which are delivered to pre-school children and their parents weekly with the help of a team of staff which franchisees are responsible for hiring and managing.
Franchisees will benefit from extensive support, advice and guidance including the running of the programme, the operational side of managing a business and proactive marketing, from setup and throughout the journey as a franchisee.
The overall investment starts from £25,000* and requires an additional working capital for local marketing, a van, initial staff overheads and first aid training, etc.
The return on investment is ultimately determined by the franchisees efforts and reflected in how many classes run each week and by the number of children attending.
