What Our Franchisees Say

Tumble Tots fits in with my young family life giving me the perfect work/family balance. In the past year I have learnt a lot and have loved every minute, since September and running the centres full time I have loved every second and really enjoy my days at work and with numbers growing I feel that something is working well.

I have never doubted my decision to take on a Tumble Tots franchise. I have the best of both worlds - my own business, with the back-up of a large organisation.

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.
