Music Bugs

A unique opportunity to run your own fun and interactive preschool music classes with our award winning company. Music Bugs were recently voted as the 'UK's Best Music Class 2008' in the Whats on 4 Little Ones Awards sponsored by pioneering baby food manufacturers Organix!

We are looking for lively, outgoing and friendly people who enjoy working (and playing!) with young children.

This is a wonderful opportunity to run your own flexible, family friendly business.

Music Bugs Franchise - Learn - Discover - Grow!

Our fun and interactive sessions focus on several key areas of development.

Children sing songs and rhymes to encourage speech and language development and counting songs to encourage early numeracy skills. The classes also focus on children’s physical development by introducing a range of action songs and brain gym activities and also finger play rhymes to encourage fine motor control.

Our philosophy is that 'kids should be kids' and we do not believe in putting young children into a structured and formal environment. Instead, our sessions are gently structured with play based activities which allow children to get involved at their own pace without feeling under pressure.

When children are having this much fun, they don't realise just how clever they are and how much they are developing and learning!
