Business Opportunities

Since being launched in 2004, MAD Academy has become a thriving franchise business with a strong brand name and reputation in the preschool marketplace.  Our classes are well known for being free-spirited and are extremely popular with mums as well as children. There are already over 150 classes being run every week by MAD Academy’s band of fabulous franchisees but there are still many towns in the UK where preschool children are denied the opportunity to enjoy our unique blend of funky music and specially choreographed dance and movement routines. Consequently, we are always looking for more fabulous people to join us and  build their own successful business by taking advantage of our tried and tested methods and our  professional support team.

MAD Academy is different

Our carefully structured curriculum, combined with our funky  style ensures children have a brilliant time while they are learning to develop some of the essential skills that are the bedrock of future growth and education. Unlike many other music and movement groups, our classes are full of energy because we believe that children need to be active and physically engaged in what they are doing. We spend lots of time dancing and aim to develop motor skills as well as musicality.

Our team is different too

MAD Academy’s success is down to its people, from the passion and vision of our founder, Helen Harrington, and the highly skilled expertise of her team, to the commitment, energy and professionalism of its franchisees. We appreciate the importance of supporting each other to ensure we all achieve business success. We believe in dedication and hard work, whilst maintaining a sense of fun! Many of the team are mothers too, juggling family life with career, and for whom flexibility is an essential and successful way of working.
