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 few 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 started spreading the mess far and wide and are looking for suitably enthusiastic team leaders to join the team!

One franchisee tells us how things have worked for her…  “I started out running 2 classes in the Gateshead area and 18 months on I’ve now got 6, most of which are oversubscribed!  I take my daughter to work with me and manage a lot of the admin after she is asleep – I love the balance Messy Monkeys gives me 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.

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…

  • 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?
