Why Little Crumpets?

Discover how we are re-defining the face of before and after school childcare in the UK.

Little Crumpets is the fastest growing specialist before and after school childcare provider in the UK. We have lived and breathed our before and after school model for several years and we are now inviting people to join us as franchisees, owning your own business but very much being part of the Little Crumpets family, by opening your own Little Crumpets home.

The benefits of opening a Little Crumpets home do not stop at the fact that you’ll be joining an exciting, fast growing, ethically centric company. There are numerous additional benefits which are equally as important in helping you make your decision and these can be found listed below.
