About Techy Tots...
TechyTots was first established in June 2017. The idea of combining Play and Technology to create an educational, fun experience for children was a unique concept.
Research demonstrated there was a gap in the market to support children to learn early coding skills. It was quickly apparent that there was high demand for TechyTots with lots of schools asking to run sessions and with family sessions being popular. In just over a year the level of supply and demand was so high for TechyTots, the opportunity for the business to grow was clear. TechyTots is now a national franchise providing classes from Tyneside to London.
TechyTots is run by Julie Barber.
Julie has been a franchisee with TechyTots since 2018, and has a unique perspective as a business leader, she has faced the challenges of a franchisee and devolved a successful franchise with multiple classes running well in her area. Julie now has the opportunity to develop TechyTots and make sure more children are able to be part of TechyTots and learn important Coding skills. Having been the franchisor since 2021, Julie has made many changes to develop and grow the business, all aiming towards her goal of being the number one children’s coding class in the uk.
TechyTots is one of the first classes in the uk to bring together technology and play to introduce children to coding. Our aim is to work on the first steps of coding with children at a young age to help prepare them for the technical world we now live in whilst making it fun. Simply put ‘Coding’ is a set of instructions for a computer or device. At TechyTots we encourage children to develop early coding skills by using robots and the most advanced ‘Techy’ toys available. We also use unplugged play and activities which encourage problem solving skills, critical thinking, sequencing, early maths skills and early programming, which are not only educational but lots of fun too!
At TechyTots we #Play Learn Code
At TechyTots we want to ensure all children are given the opportunity to learn how to code, we are committed to developing our network so we are able to make TechyTots available to children across the UK. We will continue to develop our program and ensure we maintain the highest standard of teaching across all our classes, whilst working with curriculum advisors to ensure we are always fulfilling our role of teaching in line with the national curriculum.
