Work With Us
If you love working with children but are frustrated by the endless paperwork and testing, or are looking for a job that really works around your family (it could be part-time if that's what you like and always takes place during term time), then this could be an opportunity for you. If you're not sure about setting up on your own then why not get together with a friend and grow your business together?
Funtrain classes have been established in Kent for almost 20 years and due to the high demand for places, we are looking to expand our operation by offering franchise partnerships to the right people. If you have a real interest in early years development or want to use your experience from bringing up your own family, a Funtrain franchise will give the opportunity to earn a significant income whilst providing quality classes to young children in your local area.
Funtrain is unique in offering you EVERYTHING you need to start your business included in our franchise fee:
- Quality equipment and puppets
- Initial and ongoing training and support to make sure that you build a successful business by offering top quality, confidence building classes
- Ongoing training which has been developed by a behaviour specialist
- A high presence on social media to advertise and reinforce the aims of the classes to a wide audience
All you need to do is find a suitable local venue within your franchise area and provide a portable speaker, iPad, iPhone or iPod to store the lesson plans and music on.
We will provide you with support and a start-up package which will allow you to hit the ground running and you will be supported and trained to make sure you can deliver the same high quality, fun environment which has kept us busy over many years.

Funtrain classes are available to children from one year to pre-school age
At Funtrain all our classes are founded on positive reinforcement, this is the key to developing positive behaviour. Gentle coaxing will work – forcing a child to join in before they are ready will not. Praise is the key to developing positive behaviour, independence and confidence and any progress however small needs to be acknowledged by the class leader and reinforced by the parent/carer.
It is important for parents/carers that their child enjoys attending the classes. Some children need more coaxing than others to join in. A child should never be forced to take part in an activity. Some children prefer to watch and observe for a few sessions before feeling confident enough to join in. Repetition of songs and actions will help to reinforce speech and language development. The action songs help improve body awareness and gross motor skills. We use percussions instruments to help develop fine motor skills. What makes our classes successful is that we want every child and their parent/carer to have a really positive, rewarding time.
