Tatty Bumpkin children’s franchise proves a hit north of the border

Tatty Bumpkin children’s franchise proves a hit north of the border

Franchisee Tara McGregor was the first person to bring the Tatty Bumpkin concept to Scotland

Tara McGregor from Edinburgh is defying the recession with her new business - a children’s franchise offering a unique, award winning yoga concept for babies and children aged 0-7 years.

It’s the first Scottish franchise for Tatty Bumpkin, which has developed a yoga inspired educational programme that is fully aligned to the Early Years Foundation Stage in England as well as the Curriculum for Excellence and the Pre-birth to Three Guidance in Scotland.

Dragons’ Den
——————-

Tatty Bumpkin was featured on Dragons’ Den in 2010, intriguing the dragons with a mission to make children everywhere ‘bendy, giggly, clever and strong’. Peter Jones was sufficiently captivated - despite being hard on founder Sam Petter at the time - to invite Sam to be one of only four entrepreneurs to feature in his follow-up programme.

Now children and their carers in Edinburgh have the opportunity to find out for themselves if Tatty Bumpkin will get them moving and giggling, with classes available in nurseries, after-school clubs and private classes, as well as at parties and any number of other venues.

Tara explains: “With my daughter due to start school, I found myself at a career crossroads looking for something completely different. I was struck by Tatty Bumpkin’s passion for children’s wellbeing.

“In the company I have found one of the kindest, most welcoming and nurturing group of people I have ever met. Now my work is about being active and having fun with kids, as well as helping them and their parents explore a healthy and creative start to life. “Strength, coordination and balance are such an important foundation for children. Most of all, children enjoy their adventures with Tatty Bumpkin and her animal friends.”

Creativity
—————-

Tara’s excited to be the first to bring this completely new concept to Scotland. “So far, the feedback has been fantastic, and with their unique creativity and music I can see the classes are offering something that Edinburgh doesn’t have,” she says.

“All the class materials are made by a fairtrade cooperative in Sri Lanka. The concept fits so well with the Pre-birth to Three Guidance and the Curriculum for Excellence, especially with the Health and Wellbeing, Literacy and Expressive Arts outcomes. But most of all it’s fun and motivating for children and parents alike.”

Sounds like that’s an invitation to join Tatty Bumpkin on her mission to make Edinburgh bendy, giggly, clever and strong.
