Tumble Tots was first created in 1979 by former British Olympic gymnastics coach, Bill Cosgrave which evolved into the progressive physical play programme that we know and love today.

Our programme is designed to develop children’s physical, cognitive and social skills through a range of activities using our brightly coloured bespoke wooden, foam and handheld equipment.

Our mission is to develop children’s essential ‘Skills for Life’ and to create a positive association with physical activity at an early age, helping little ones grow up healthy and happy.

Our network of 44 franchisees run classes in 175 centres across the UK and are fully committed to the values of our programme.

We are always looking to expand our franchise network, so if you want to develop your skills for life then Tumble Tots is the franchise for you!

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 shape children’s futures.


No experience is required as full training and ongoing support is provided, however an ideal candidate will benefit from the following skills:

  • Management – hiring, training and managing a team of staff.
  • IT – basic computer skills include email, Microsoft Office and social media.
  • Financial – managing incoming money and outgoing costs.
  • Communication – with staff, head office, customers and stake holders.
  • Customer Service – to potential and current parents and children.
  • Marketing – promoting classes to the target audience with the local area.

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.


Choosing a career in franchising gives owners the advantage of an already established and reputable brand with all the tools required without starting a new business from scratch.

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.

  • Proven Idea – The business has already proven successful
  • Market Share – No need for market testing
  • Recognised Brand – Benefit from national recognition
  • Support – Excellent support from a successful business
  • No Prior Experience – Full training provided
  • Flexibility – Choose the hours you work around your family


The overall investment starts from approximately £25,000* and requires an additional working capital for local marketing, a van, initial staff overheads and first aid training, etc.

  • Defined Franchise Territory with Demographics
  • 3 Year Franchise Agreement as approved by the BFA
  • Set of unique Tumble Tots Equipment
  • Extensive Franchisee and Team training
  • National Advertising and Promotional Activities
  • Full support, guidance, and expertise of Tumble Tots (UK) Ltd

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.

A full and extensive training package is provided to Franchisees and their teams, this package includes Business Management Training, Class Foundation Training and Leader Training.

Throughout your first 12 months as a Franchisee, you will receive a minimum of 3 support visits in order to help, guide, support and develop your new business.

Training opportunities are provided throughout every academic year to help continue to strengthen you and your team’s knowledge.

What will I do as a Franchisee

Most days will consist of running classes and the responsibilities associated with this, however franchisees will need to consider other daily, weekly, monthly, termly, and ongoing business management and marketing activities.

Daily Franchisees will meet their team at the centre begin setting up for the day. This will include unloading the equipment from the van and preparing for the first class.

Franchisees will greet and sign in existing members, talk to any new customers, and in many cases, both assist and lead the classes. On average, there are approximately four 45-minute classes running on each operating day with 15 minutes between classes for equipment change overs.

After classes, all the equipment is packed back away in the van ready for the next day and franchisees will carry out other essential duties such as administration, operational tasks and marketing their business.
