Debutots is a multi award-winning franchise. The head office team won the top award for Best Franchise Support 2020 in the prestigious AFA awards; it took home the prize in the children’s category at the Best Franchise Awards in 2019 and its Worcestershire franchisee, Kirsten,  won Network Contribution at the AFA awards in 2019. Franchisees also gave Debutots a 96 per cent satisfaction rating and the franchisor was awarded the 5 star franchise satisfaction award in 2019 by Work Buzz, the BFA recognised benchmarking company operating across the franchising sector. The franchisor was  complimented on its professionalism and attention to detail.

The services Debutots provides will always be in demand, as there is a never-ending need to invest in developing children’s communication, social and emotional skills.

Classes appeal to a diverse customer base, which includes nurseries, schools, after-school clubs, children’s centres, libraries, local councils and parents, and with the introduction of the intergenerational project franchisees have more to offer than ever before.

Debutots is a ready-made business. For their investment, franchisees get everything they need to start, including:

  • Weekly class plans, proven curriculum and all resources
  • Full initial and ongoing training and mentoring in all aspects of the business
  • A website, email, and social media pages and online business management account
  • Your own exclusive territory
  • Freedom! Franchisees organise how they work and when they work from their timetables to their staff.

The Debutots franchise model has been in operation for over a decade and is set up to be workable around your lifestyle. The company understands that, parent or not, a business has to be flexible enough to work around your life, while also being successful at bringing income into the home.


Franchisees get one to one initial training, mentoring and ongoing support. The training provided is very comprehensive, includes business training and is highly praised by franchisees.

There is a friendly network of support that comes not just from head office, but from other franchisees, who share their experiences on the company’s online forum and at the company conference.

“Both the practical and business training set me up so well and gave me the confidence in myself and it is so reassuring to know that there is always someone at the end of the phone should I have any questions or just want to talk something through.” Avril, Franchisee for West NI.

What will I do as a Franchisee

Our franchisees work to their own schedules and set their own goals. As such, each franchisee is unique and some will work three days a week and some full time. There is no cap on earnings and our cascade training programme makes it affordable and straight forward to recruit and train your own staff.

It’s a diverse business and franchisees can be delivering classes with parents and their little ones in the morning and delivering a rewarding intergenerational class in the afternoon in a residential care home with a group of pre-schoolers.

Franchisees build relationships within their local community and become preferred suppliers to local organisations, schools and nurseries.
