Our success has been built upon a strong foundation; founded by Bill Cosgrave in 1979 , former coach for the British Olympic Gymnastics team, the Tumble Tots programme helps children develop their motor skills of balance, co-ordination and agility during their formative years. Activities within our sessions help with brain development, building confidence, as well as social and language and listening skills.
Since its inception, our franchise network has expanded into over 400 UK-based centres operated by around 80 franchisees. However, many more children could benefit from our programme; therefore, we are currently seeking like-minded individuals to join our close-knit family and part of our success story.

What our franchisees say
We believe that we offer a fantastic franchise opportunity…but don’t just take our word for it. Here are some testimonies:
“It has been a rewarding experience so far and one I am glad that I decided to take. Things have not been easy with the economic climate as it has been recently, however it has made me realise you get out what you put in and with hard work you can achieve your goals. I have had good advice and support form Tumble Tots head office and this has enabled me to keep a strong business through tough times.
I hope to continue to grow the business over the next few years, increasing numbers in existing classes and opening new ones”.
Catherine Byrne, Tumble Tots franchisee since 2009, Gloucester
“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.”
Lucy & Lee Ford, Tumble Tots franchisees since 2010, York
Are we right for each other?
Previous experience working with children is not essential as full training and support is given.
Primarily we are looking for individuals who aren't afraid of managing a team, and interacting with parents and children.
If you are interested in running a highly rewarding children-centred business, we would love to hear from you.
