The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy is a unique organisation within the UK. It began in Australia in 1979 when Helen O’Grady, who had qualified as a drama teacher and was also an actress, started her own afterschool drama classes for children. She spotted a gap in the market and went on to fill it very successfully. She wanted to introduce children to the fun of acting, but also to give them a chance to develop emotionally and mentally at the same time.

The aims behind the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy are to give children the chance to develop a positive outlook and energy for life, as well as gaining enthusiasm and confidence to try new things. Acting classes such as these can have a serious positive impact on a child’s self-esteem, plus they can aid in learning verbal communication and good social etiquette and interaction.

Over 50,000 students at the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy each week in 26 different countries. The UK has over 15,000 weekly students, but the projection is that there will be 50,000 in the UK each week within just a few years.

Being able to give children confidence in themselves which can then be used in all other aspects of their lives is something that drama teachers at Helen O’Grady Drama Academy love.

Children Franchises

Over the last ten years there has been a huge rise in children related franchises in the UK. Some children franchises now include sectors such as child care, Creche, child swimming classes, children fitness classes, art classes and even go kart hire franchises.

In fact there are hundreds of different franchise opportunities that provide some sort of care or activity for children. It is probably this and people striving for a better work/life balance that has also contributed to the huge rise in the so called “Mumpreneurs” which describes mums with young children preferring to run their own business around their family than more traditional full or part-time employment. According to The Telegraph this boom in Mumpreneurs has resulted in a boost to the UK economy of a massive £7bn a year.

With so many varieties of children related franchises and the continued expansion and rise of mums setting up their own businesses in the UK children franchises are sure to continue to grow and Mumpreneurs are also bound to contribute even more to the UK economy in the future.
