Baby College Franchise Opportunity

Would you like to run your own inspiring, rewarding & fun business?

Baby College is a unique and original class-based developmental programme for parents and their 0 to 3 year olds. The first Baby College classes started in Reading in 2000 and it is now successfully running in areas across the UK and abroad too.

Baby College FranchiseThe core movements and principles of the Baby College programme were developed over 18 years ago in Reading by Alison Lawson, an associate of the Institute of Neuro-Physiological Psychology. 

Ten years ago Bea and Donna, the current directors, took over the running and development of Baby College and have been running it successfully since then based in Oxford.

The Baby College Franchise programme comprises 3 progressive age classes with 42 structured and easy to deliver lesson plans (3 terms + their summer programme) for each age group (total of 126 sessions).

Baby College Franchise | Parent and Child Development BusinessThe age appropriate, structured sessions are for parents and their young babies and children together.

The aim is to give parents an insight into their child’s development and to provide ideas and exercises that can be used at home as well as in class to help parents to support their baby or child’s growth, development and early education.

For the Baby College Franchise training and equipment you will receive six full days initial training and a complete kit for running the 126 lesson plans for up to 15 parents and children.
