Theatre Tots

Theatre Tots specialise in drama for early years children. We are a multi strand business and we currently run a range of classes, parties, workshops and interactive session in schools and nurseries. Uniquely we run our sessions in China, the first UK business of this type to do so.

Theatre Tots gives children and babies the opportunity to explore their imagination! Drama isn’t just about becoming a performer; it is about important life skills – confidence, flexibility and imagination.

Already we offer our sessions nationwide, and are looking for more franchisees to help us to grow. As a franchisee you will run your own sessions, using our full programme, with themes that change regularly throughout the year.

We need people who have experience of Early Years Education. Maybe you are a performer with this experience, or have teaching experience and love to perform! You must be outgoing, flexible and organised and able to communicate well, with the babies and children we teach, and parents, nursery owners and teachers.

We can offer everything you need to start your own business from full training, a wide range of marketing materials to props and music and full programme of classes. This is a very flexible opportunity, you can run just 2 classes a week, or you can run it as a full time job. This business is ideal to grow as your family goes.

If you are interested in becoming a Theatre Tots franchisee, then please get in touch.

A Week in the Life….

Natalie is our original franchisee and she took on a Theatre Tots franchise in early 2009. She was an actress looking to diversify my skills into working with young children, as she had a young son. “Theatre Tots is a fantastic way to meet other mums with young children and the beauty of the class content is that you can take your own children along to enjoy it too! I now have two boys and the youngest comes with me and acts as a brilliant advert for how Theatre Tots benefits a child's development. “

A typical week for Natalie consists of running ? classes. These are all within school hours so I can always manage to do the school run!

“In between my classes I try to do some local marketing to raise the profile of my classes and there is always some admin to do. The great thing about this is I can do this in the evening when the children in bed.”

“Because I have been running my classes for a while I am now getting involved with the Theatre Tots Chronicles. This week I have been scoping out a show at a local museum and meeting with another potential commercial client who would like us to put together a bespoke production.”

“At the weekend I have two parties. I often have another teacher who helps with these which leaves me time to enjoy my family.”
