Company Overview

I’m Tash, Rubba-Bubba’s Director and Founder. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved caring for and working with babies and children.

From babysitting and childminding, through to qualifying as a Paediatric Nurse 12 years ago, and currently a Health Visitor. Babies and families have been and always will be my passion.

I started Rubba–Bubba Baby Massage in 2013, the same year I had my first baby. I am now a mama to two adorable (ish) children, wife to Craig and have been a children’s nurse for 12 years. After a long career on the ward, I have now retrained as a Health Visitor and still practise today.
We run baby-preschool massage, baby-preschool yoga- and sensory classes and our mission is to provide small, safe and personal classes for parents and their little ones to share the most precious time. Rubba-Bubba classes are fun, magical and super beneficial.
With baby/child development and emotional well-being at the centre of our classes, Rubba-Bubba aims to enhance movement, social interactions, confidence, emotional regulation, speech and language and much more. Songs, rhymes, stories and sensory/messy play complement our classes to make the sessions exciting, safe and easy to follow.
Make magical memories!

Franchise Overview

In 2018 I began developing Rubba-Bubba as a franchise by teaching our accredited classes to fellow mums, who, like me, want to own a flexible business that fits in with their family and lifestyle, is rewarding and truly makes a difference to both babies and their parents.

I understand that the prospect of becoming a business owner may be scary (it was for me when I started). The big difference is when I started Rubba-Bubba, it was as a result of simply having an idea. I needed to research, decide, create and make a tonne of mistakes. Now Rubba-Bubba is a successful reality, your success is hugely increased because of replicating the successful business model I have developed over 8 years.

I’m a working parent myself, so have designed the business to fit around family commitments. As a Rubba-Bubba franchisee, you will have a flexible, family orientated, rewarding business where you can choose your hours and the days you wish to work, and adjust the number of classes you run accordingly. Whether you want to run a part-time or full-time business will be YOUR decision and can fit in with your existing family and work commitments.

You have an opportunity to be part of this exciting brand as we build a UK network and could be up and running within 8 weeks!

Daily Life of a franchisee

No two days are the same in Rubba-Bubba.

Within our stage 1 baby massage/yoga classes (0-4m) we specialise in running small friendly classes (max 12 babies) where the instructors demonstrate the nurturing baby massage or yoga stretches on a doll for the parents to easily follow. We finish with refreshments and a chat. Within our stage 2 classes (4m-crawling) the baby massage strokes/yoga stretches are specially adapted for the busier, rolling, sitting up (or nearly) inquisitive and nearly mobile baby.

We sing songs, play with lots of sensory toys, bubbles etc for a very interactive and fun class. Our sensory and messy play sessions are all babies and toddler living their best life knee-deep in sand, rice, bubbles and coco pops!

You can also run 1st year birthday parties and seasonal parties (Christmas, easter summer and Halloween.) Teach nurseries and schools, one to ones and online classes.

Not only would you manage and run the classes and parties, but you would also set aside some admin time for things like the booking system, social media, ordering merchandise and sourcing venues.

Due to the generous territory, you have scope to take on teachers to run more classes for you (after your first year in business-full support and training given).

Once a month all the franchisees and I get together online for a mastermind-this includes topics that will help you run your business and classes. This is a great chase to speak to the other franchisees, swap ideas, support, rant and laugh together. The best thing is no one is in competition we all help each other! We are such a family.

Kath, Rubba-Bubba franchisee

Tash is a wonderful mentor and a great friend.....

"I started my RB journey whilst on mat leave after my own little one, and then carried on my RB business alongside my part-time job which worked out really well. I met so many amazing mums and babies through my classes, and I loved watching them grow and seeing lots of new-mum-friends being made in my classes and carried on afterwards!

Tash is a wonderful mentor and a great friend, and I feel very lucky to have enjoyed such a fun couple of years! I’d recommend this business to anyone looking to earn a fab income while enjoying exciting classes with cute babies and friendly mums, what’s not to love! You get full support from Tash and be part of the ever-growing Rubba-Bubba family and I’m grateful to have made some fantastic memories and friends.”

Rachael, Rubba-Bubba franchisee - Ammanford, Carmarthen & Llandeilo

This is the best job…..I joined Rubba-Bubba as I took my son to the massage classes and loved them. The massage also helped with his wind and tummy troubles! The great thing about being part of the franchise is I choose when and where I hold classes within my territory- meaning I can work them around my family, doing as much or as little as I need.

I love meeting all the wonderful parents and their babies each week, teaching them the skill of massage but also having time for a chat and a cuppa at the end.

This is the best job and works for me and my family

So friendly and approachable…

I want to thank Tash for being so friendly and approachable when I first started teaching my classes. Tash helped me a lot and always had time for any questions that I had or to try and find solutions to any problems I had. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching classes and I liked how flexible it could be as I could choose the days and times that I taught.

I also loved meeting all the new mums with their babies, it was lovely to see the attachment between mum and baby whilst doing baby massage".

“Being part of a franchise was perfect for me as I can work the hours I want to work and being a busy mum of two children I didn’t have the time to start my own business from scratch. Tash is always there with any questions or queries I have, no question is a silly question with Tash. We have regular meetings with other franchisees to discuss how we can drive our businesses forward by bringing new ideas to the table.”
