Working for:
Jellybeans Music


Jellybeans Music offers award winning early years music and movement classes for babies, toddlers and their grown-ups.  Our classes are fun, inclusive and very interactive.  Quality music is at the heart of everything we do and our sound is eclectic - a fusion of Jellybeans originals, nursery rhymes, action songs and world music.  All our classes support EYFS and early childhood development is very important to both us and our customers.

Thousands of babies, toddlers and adults have enjoyed Jellybeans time since the business launched in 2007 and we’ve now decided it is time to spread this happiness across the country which is why we are seeking franchisees. We’ve tested and double tested every single element of our business so we know it works and works beautifully.  

There are no specific qualifications or experience needed to run Jellybeans Music classes.  We’d like to meet people who are full of energy and enthusiasm and committed to working hard to build their own successful business.  People who love to sing, twirl, jump and clap.  People who enjoy working with babies, toddlers and adults and are genuinely interested in them.  We want to meet confident, people who sing and like ‘people’.

Full training will be provided on every aspect of running your business and we’ll be there to support you both initially and ongoing.



Investment Required:
Our franchise costs £4,995 and includes:

  • Everything you need to run your classes, including instruments, music, bubbles, stickers, stationery & marketing materials
  • Exclusive territory
  • Trading under the Jellybeans Music brand name
  • Full training on all aspects of the business
  • Family friendly, flexible working hours set by you
  • Hours:
    Flexible hours which work around you, your family and other commitments. Classes tend to be Monday – Friday during school hours plus, if you choose to offer them, weekend party bookings.

    Your earnings will be dependent on how many classes you choose to run a week, how many weeks a year you choose to work but it is not unrealistic to expect to turnover £50 - £75 per class. So, if you decide to deliver 10 classes a week, earning £50 per class, 40 weeks a year, you could turnover £20,000 pa, plus there are other revenue streams from parties, nursery work and the sale of Jellybeans Music merchandise.

    Best suited to:
    The Jellybeans Music franchise is perfect for energetic, enthusiastic people who love to sing and twirl, are genuinely interested in babies, toddlers and their parents and who want to build and develop a business which fits around their family or other commitments.

    Mum's view

    Name: Elizabeth, Chief bean

    Location: South Lincolnshire

    Family: Mum of 3. Charlie aged 23, Sebastian aged 18 and Tobias aged 15 - all still living at home!

    How often do you work?
    I now run 11 classes a week plus weekend birthday parties as and when they are booked. The most classes a week I’ve ever run has been 24 but I’ve got a dog now who needs walking in the afternoons!

    How does the job fit around your family life?
    I created the business when my youngest started school and decided from day 1, I would only work during school hours. I wanted to take & collect them myself & be around to chat. I’ve been to all their sports days, school plays & now I’m there to support them through the endless revision for exams both at school and university

    How much time do you commit?
    It really does change from week to week. I try to do an hour a night catching up on emails, cleaning kit and general admin and on sundays I get up early before the teenagers surface and get ready for the week ahead

    Where do you carry out your work?
    I run my classes in many different church/village halls in South Lincolnshire and Rutland. All the ‘behind the scenes’ work takes place at home

    Do you need a car?
    Yes, with a big boot or room to fit kit on the back seats.

    Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
    Definitely! My days are filled with laughter, fun and music. It is so rewarding seeing how much the children and adults enjoy coming into class and helping them learn new skills. I know that the grownups really value the support the classes offer them, especially in BabyBeans and I’ve watched many friendships blossom

    Do you advertise?
    Yes, I use social media a lot to promote my classes but I’ve found the very best advertising is word of mouth. People love to tell their friends when they’ve found a class they believe in

    Are there any downsides to the role?
    Apart from having to sing ‘Jingle Bells’ at Christmas a lot (!) I can’t think of any. I love being a bean, no two days are ever the same
