Join The Team


Fancy running your own messy monkeys group?

Our experience has proven that it’s loads of fun and extremely rewarding – a super way to earn while still being a super parent!

We’ve spent the last 10 years meticulously planning out the perfect way for the little monkeys to enjoy messy play at its messiest and we think we have it cracked.  We’ve spread the mess far and wide and are looking for suitably enthusiastic team leaders to join the team!

“I started out running 2 classes and 18 months on I’ve now got 6, most of which are oversubscribed! I love the balance messy monkeys gives me with my family and am loving earning my own money too!”

We would LOVE to share the magic of messy monkeys throughout the country and are offering you the chance to join our team.

As a franchisee you can expect all the advice and support you need to help you establish your own group, including assistance with securing a venue, recruiting monkeys, online payment administration and of course, insurance, health & safety and legal issues.



“For me the main benefit of owning a messy monkey franchise is being in charge of my own days, in charge of my own time and choosing when and where I work!”

A messy monkeys franchise offers you the opportunity to earn money without spending time away from your little ones.

If you like the sound of a flexible job that gives you and your children the freedom to enjoy your time together then a messy monkeys franchise might be just thing you’re looking for.

Below are the sorts of things needed to make messy monkeys work for you…

  • Have you got endless enthusiasm and an ability to maintain a smile even when covered in jelly and custard?
  • Do you own a washing machine and are you prepared to wash copious amounts of sheets, towels and flannels every week?
  • Do you own a vehicle with a big boot?
  • Do you have access to a computer and the internet?
  • Do you have space in your house to store boxes of sand, tubs of paint and stacks of card?
  • Are you fit and healthy? (It is quite hard work sweeping up mountains of cornflakes!)

“I love the fact I can choose when I take a holiday, I love that I am able to take the younger (and often older) members of my family to work with me!”

We will also ensure that you have everything you need to get started with your Messy Play group:

  • A generous budget for everything you need to get started – including your wipe clean flooring, sand and gloop trays, your all important bath tubs and your very own ’messy monkey’!
  • Free session plans and resource lists for your first year – this includes details of more than 80 fantastically creative themed sessions
  • An easy to use online space to promote your local sessions and process bookings which is linked to an online payment facility making your region’s administration secure and straightforward.

It goes without saying that we’ll offer you comprehensive advice and training to make sure you can enjoy being a messy monkey group leader as much as we do.  As a franchisee you will become a new and valued member of ‘team monkey’; we will be at the end of a phone if you ever need us, no matter how tiny the issue might be, to provide support, advice and a friendly ear.


“I have received a massive amount of support from Helen and Karen whilst establishing my area, they have always been there at the end of an email, text or call. I now run 5 sessions throughout my area with another one to be added to my franchise in the new term!”

A fantastic package at a reasonable rate – no commission or surprise fees!
  • Our franchise package is set at a rate we are confident you can earn back in your first year of operation.
  • Successful franchisees can earn over £1000 per month working just a few days a week, term time only!
  • The only limitation is your capacity to clear up gloop and wash flour covered sheets!
