About Us

baby college pic

Baby College offers weekly parent and baby development classes to parents and their babies or young children. There are three different progressive age ranges starting at birth and continuing into the child’s third year.

Baby College classes include a range of activities that enhance every aspect of a child’s development. These include games which help stimulate cognitive, language, physical, sensory and emotional development and puts the parent and baby relationship very much at the centre of the classes.  Baby College classes are unique in that they are as much for the parent as they are for the babies. Parents renew for several terms on average and return with second or third children.

The franchise package includes 44 weekly lesson plans for each of the three age groups (making 132 in total), a fully comprehensive training programme, a full kit to run your classes with and continuous support from head office and other Baby College franchisees.

No specific qualifications or experience are required as full training is provided but a passion for baby and child development is needed and it suits people who are sociable, outgoing and enjoy spending time with parents and children.

A desire to make the business a success and some personal drive is an advantage plus some organisational ability. Singing nursery rhymes is part of the job…

Emma Andrews – Baby College West Oxfordshire

baby college case study

Baby College enables me to do the school runs and take my children to all their after-school activities – I have a lot of flexibility and autonomy with my time. I teach classes term-time only which means that I do not need to organise any child care during the school holidays or before and after school. This is fantastic as it means I can spend the school holidays with my children and do not need to organise any before or after school child care. The wonderful thing about this job is the time it affords me with my family, as well as being an extremely interesting and rewarding job working with parents and children and empowering parents to have confidence in their parenting and more understanding of their children’s development.

Training was given before I launched classes and ongoing support is available from the parent company, who are very supportive and helpful. We also have an excellent support network of closed Facebook groups and other communications between all teachers and franchisees and technical staff/third party providers that ensures any issues/problems can be resolved as quickly as possible. The support is excellent in my view.

This means that although you work independently, as we now have a growing network of Baby College Franchisees across the UK, you a never ‘alone’ and always have support of the parent company and other franchisees if you need it
