When selecting new franchisees we want people who not only share our commitment to providing the best possible experience for the children who attend our classes but who also want to share that passion in their area, and are willing to work hard to achieve their goals.

The personal qualities they bring are at least as important as previous business experience or previous experience of running children’s classes.

Yes – there are a lot of questions, but, if the answer to most of the above is YES, then a Little Squigglers Franchise could be just for you.

Nervous about starting your own business?

We all know that starting a business can be a bit daunting, mistakes can be expensive and being self-employed can feel a bit lonely.

Well – that is all perfectly true – EXCEPT that with a Little Squigglers Franchise you are not on your own – you will be joining an experienced team with an award winning brand – we will be with you all the way – to teach you, to help you and above all – support you. How fast and how far you go is up to you but it is good to know that it isn’t simply a matter of dropping you in at the deep end – let’s face it – it’s our reputation as well and we want you to be successful.

After initial training and support, and seeing how well other Little Squigglers franchisees are managing their businesses, we will get you started, running your first classes and earning in no time at all – but we will still be there supporting you.

Reduce the risks

We don’t want to take risks and neither do you. We know that this is still a big decision – for both of us – we need to understand that you are right for us and especially for the children and you need to know what you are entering into.

This is not new to us – we know it works when all of the right components are in place – the only component missing may be you.

So what exactly is a franchise?

Simply put, franchising allows you (the franchisee) to start a business for yourself but not really on your own. You get to run a business, usually within an agreed exclusive territory, but with the help and support of the franchisor – the company who have already successfully tried and tested the business elsewhere. You pay for the franchise package and then get to use the brand name, materials and equipment and techniques etc. that have made the business successful elsewhere, for either an agreed period or on a renewable contract. You will then receive training, an operational manuals / class programmes, marketing, administration and franchisee networking support whilst you will agree to run the business to the franchisor’s standards and methods.

Little Squigglers are now seeking those who are all too aware of the importance and value of young children having rich and exciting learning experiences to join our team.
Could the Little Squigglers Franchise be for you, and could you be the person we are looking for?

The classes have been tried and tested, the equipment has been sourced, the demand from parents is there and you can start your new Art, Craft and Messy Play Business straight away.

Some franchise owners knew very little about franchising until they explored and joined Little Squigglers, and some had no previous business experience. With self-motivation, an ability to listen, and a true commitment, they have built up a successful and fun business.


When your business works well the results are amazing and the success of an ever expanding national network of Little Squigglers franchisees can only benefit everyone else.

The rewards are not just about potential earnings, YOU can be the one who makes a child’s Birthday party really special, YOU can be the one who really helps to develop a child’s communication skills or introduces them to real creativity and YOU can be an invaluable part of the foundations they have for the rest of their lives.
