Welcome to the world of Tatty Bumpkin
Tatty Bumpkin was founded in 2004 with an UnLtd Social Enterprise award, by designer, mum and Yoga teacher, Sam Petter to provide yoga-inspired classes for babies and children from 0 – 7 years.
The Tatty Bumpkin programme develops flexibility, enhances creativity, aids development and promotes wellbeing by encouraging children to be Bendy, Giggly, Clever and Strong.
Tatty Bumpkin, the star of the show, is the character at the centre of the original stories and music written by Sam Petter and her team of paediatric physiotherapists, Yoga teachers, musicians and educationalists.
The classes are tailored to your child’s developmental stage and incorporate music, story-telling and postures inspired by Yoga:
Baby Bumpkin: A progressive curriculum for babies 0-2 years to aid development, relaxation and bonding.
Tatty Bumpkin: A fun, interactive class for children from 2-7 years aligned to the early years curriculum.
The award winning programme is delivered across the UK as private classes and also in nurseries, pre-schools, children’s clubs, after-school clubs, parties, festivals, weddings...in fact Tatty Bumpkin can take place anywhere where there are children waiting to have fun.
All the Tatty Bumpkin dolls and teaching aids are fairly traded with a fair trade co-operative in Sri Lanka.
In order to be able to offer the classes nationwide, the Tatty team has developed a flexible working opportunity for parents to run their own Tatty Bumpkin business, accredited by the British Franchise Association. Tatty Bumpkin recently won a Social Enterprise award for helping mums back to work.

Whether you are a parent or carer looking for a class to attend, a professional body looking for a fun, developmental programme; or if you are looking for a flexible working opportunity to fit in with family life, Tatty Bumpkin has something magical to offer you.
"When my son was little, I felt there was a lack of creative classes for babies and children that really tapped into the magic of childhood - and for the parents too, a sense of fun; reaching out to the inner child in all of us. We pride ourselves on our interactive development classes, but our ethos is driven by a genuine desire to have fun. Tatty Bumpkin is about more than business." Sam Petter, Founder.
