This March, our Small Business of the Month is the Nottingham franchise of Tumble Tots – a nationwide brand organising fun developmental classes for children, held in locations across the UK.

The Tumble Tots programmes run for children aged 6 months to school age and focus around, not only developing the child’s confidence and self-esteem, but also encouraging physical skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination. These objectives are supported by Tumble Tots’ combination of fun creative classes, their range of brightly coloured equipment, and their enthusiastic team members. 

The Nottingham branch runs with what franchisee Fiona Drayton describes as “a very strong and loyal team of five” behind it. The staff are all incredibly dedicated and pride themselves on knowing each and every child and their main development areas. 

Although this may seem an impossible task, with member count increasing to 300 since Fiona took over in 2014, this individual attention is a fundamental area of building relationships with the children, and aiding them in reaching their potential during their time at Tumble Tots. 

For 2017, the high standards of work by Tumble Tots has also secured the business a year-long partnership with pregnancy and baby healthcare charity, Tommy’s; with which they will be fundraising to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for all.

Tumble Tots has been nominated for Small Business of the Month by our Product Manager and Head of Customer Value, Louise Knapper, who attends several of their Nottingham classes with her children.

Louise says, “I like Tumble Tots because the classes encourage children to build their confidence. As your child progresses, the different classes become more formal and your child is allowed to be more independent. It means they get used to participating in more structured classes in a suitably gradual way."

“The ladies who run the sessions are lovely, making each child feel special and really recognising their achievements – thanks to Fiona, Vicky, Lynn and Angela for running such a great class!”
