After the success of our first classes in 2001, Caterpillar Music began branching out in 2003, when our first franchisees came on board. Since then our Caterpillar Music family has grown from strength to strength. Some of our franchisees have been operating successful businesses for more than 12 years.

We are members of the Children’s Activities Association, fully accredited members of the Approved Franchise Association and The Quality Franchise Association and are ambassadors of the Encouraging Women Into Franchising Group.

Our franchisees stem from all different backgrounds; teachers, parents, doctors, lawyers, recruiters, musicians, and actors, to name but a few. What they have in common is a passion for working with little ones, boundless energy and enthusiasm.

What’s Caterpillar Music?

Based on Montessori principles and founded in 2001 by Kathryn Hyatt, a trained Montessori teacher, fun is at the heart of everything we do.

Every child is unique in their development; at Caterpillar Music they can join in at their own pace when they feel ready. It has been shown that music in these early years has huge benefits.

We usually run our music sessions in local community venues, but we also offer tailored sessions for nurseries and pre-schools, Birthday Party entertainment and our very special Intergenerational sessions.

Our fun and engaging themed classes are structured, yet varied, so there really is something for everyone.


I would 100% recommend it; A great team, a fun job and a fantastic earning opportunity.
