Michelle Lee, Newcastle franchisee
Michelle was a Toxicologist who changed career to better suit her family life…
As my family grew, my priorities in life changed and after 11 years working as a Toxicologist, I went in search of a job which suited family life better. Running a Tumble Tots Franchise doesn’t feel like work as we have fun every single day! And you can set your own business hours meaning that it fits perfectly around busy family life. By far the most rewarding part of running a Tumble Tots franchise is seeing all the children’s skills progressing week on week and watching their confidence soar! You get a great support network with the head office team and your fellow franchisees are also extremely helpful and on hand for idea sharing and support.

Lee and Lucy, York Franchisees

Lucy Ford of Tumble Tots York had been working with Children and wanted to do more…

Lee and I bought Tumble Tots because we wanted a new venture and as I'd previously worked with children at a Health Club, I wanted to do more. The challenge is great but very rewarding! My days go SO fast now and we see the best of every child. I get parents that come in complaining about their jobs, and think to myself this is work, it's really not like a job. Being my own boss gives me the freedom to put my stamp on the business, I have a great team and we all work together really well. We do parties at Summer and Christmas which are always full, sponsored events, colouring competitions the list goes on.
Catherine Byrne, Gloucestershire Franchisee
Catherine worked in retail before becoming a franchisee...

I came from a retail and training background having worked in retail for 12 years before having my children. I took time off after having my 2 children then worked for Tumble tots as a part time member of staff in the midlands before moving to Cheltenham in 2006 where I also worked part time as a Tumble tots trainer.

When the opportunity to buy the business came up I had no hesitation in going for it as I knew that this was a reputable Franchise with a proven record of training and support.

Jacky and Helen, Newark Franchisees
Parents, Jacky and Helen, ran a toddler group together and have both found a job flexible around their lifestyle…

Jacky: We knew we made a good team after successfully running a Toddler Group. So when the opportunity arose to buy the Tumble Tots Newark franchise we couldn't ignore it. We both have children who have attended Tumble Tots. Having attended the Tumble Tots sessions I know what an important role they can play in a child's healthy development as well as being a fun, sociable place to meet new friends for both adults and children.

Helen: Both of my boys looked forward to their weekly Tumble Tots. It helped them with their confidence and development but above all the music and activities were fun. I am so proud that I can now be part of the Tumble Tots programme. When attending classes with children of our own we knew that it would be a fun day at the office. We were both looking to return to work but as with both mums were struggling to find something to fit around school hours and school holidays.
