I first started Kiddleydivey when I couldn’t find a suitable music class for my 3-year-old daughter many years ago. With over 30 years of experience working as a music specialist in psychiatry and for children with special needs, I decided to start my own children’s classes at home, which quickly grew in popularity, forcing a move to local halls and spreading to accommodate classes in different areas.
Sessions for older adults followed shortly afterward with the development of stimulating session plans, designed to engage and invigorate body, minds, and memories.
We know how important music in reaching out to those who are perhaps suffering memory loss, in reconnecting everyone with their memories, in mobilising older people and, in stimulating movement and minds. It is also a very valuable tool to use with people with a variety of special needs as music can bypass damaged parts of the brain and reach other receptive areas that require little or no cognitive or mental processing.
Over four years ago l made the decision to franchise the company and give other enthusiastic people the tools with which to reach children, the older adults and adults with special needs through Kiddleydivey music programmes. The franchises have been a huge success, and I am now enormously proud to have wonderful people in many corners of the UK running their own Kiddleydivey businesses.
We are looking for kind, motivated, gregarious and hard-working people who can sing in tune and may be thinking about:

Eve Whitmore has been the proud owner of her Kiddleydivey franchise in Shrewsbury, Mid Wales and Wolverhampton since 2014. Eve was looking for a business that would give her flexibility to spend more time with her children but still earn enough money to support her family.
With previous experience in sales, Eve decided that she wanted to do something that would help her give something back to the community and also offer her a flexible working life to fit around her family life.
“I had been looking at how to receive a full income with part time hours. When I started looking at Kiddleydivey I had two young children and just couldn’t see how my work life was going to fit around being a mum too. I had been interested in pursuing a career in music therapy when I was at school but the opportunity never arose. When I saw
Kiddleydivey I knew it was the opportunity for me.”
“Kiddleydivey offers a proven business and support from someone who knows how it feels to go it alone”. When I attended the first music session during my training, the atmosphere in the room was so flat. However, once the music session began, the room transformed and I decided it was something I could do and really build a rewarding career from.”
Eve now enjoys spending time with her family whilst still working. She has achieved her goal of running her own business, working part-time hours but still earning a good income.
