Local, up to date and current directory for baby businesses in Suffolk.


Getting to know your Business 

Do you have a shop front? Where are you based?

Our sessions run from Combs Ford Scouts Hut in Stowmarket, all of our admin, marketing etc is done from home – when our babies allow!

How did your business come about? Did it start as a hobby or did you know that you wanted it to be a business from the very beginning?

We met at an Attachment Parenting group a short time before our maternity leave was due to run out. When we got talking it transpired that we both were thinking about starting a baby and toddler group as a way of fitting work around our children! Sophie Rose has a background in working with children, Sophie has a marketing background, we realised we were the perfect team!

Tell me a bit about your business, what makes it special?

We offer messy play, sensory stimulus, craft and music all under one roof! Your child will earn a badge each week which is something collectable to take home and also give them a sense of achievement . Our weeks are themed so you will never do the same activity twice!! We also like to think that at Clubhouse Kids you’ll get the warmest welcome in Suffolk!

How long have you been in business?

We’re brand new! We’re just coming to the end of our first term, although we’ve been offering taster sessions since October.

What is your favourite part of being your own boss?

The freedom to go wild with our creativity! As well as to work around our families. Although we’re not quite our own bosses as we have to answer to each other… it’s a good job we get along!

Do you offer products or services? Please give information about these products / services.

We offer messy play, sensory and crafts for pre schoolers. As well as weekly term time sessions we also do one off weekend events, so that all the family can come along!

What is your favourite product or service you offer?

Sophie has a real flare for the crafts and Sophie Rose likes to get stuck in to the messy activities! We both really love having fun with the children that come along and particularly enjoy seeing both mums and dads and even grandparents come along to our weekend sessions.

If I want to hire you for your services, how can I do this/find you?

We are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Or you visit our website or email us at We can’t wait to hear from you!

Time to get a bit personal… 

What kind of family commitments do you need to juggle along with your business? How do you find balance?

We both have 1 year olds so it’s a constant juggling act between family life and Clubhouse Kids! We try to squeeze work in to nap times, enlist the help of our husbands and get the babies involved in testing out our activities!

What is your favourite tv shows, food, or song?

We’re both partial to a bit of Eastenders, that’s the only programme we agree on!

What can you be found doing on a weekend? or when you have time off?

Anything in the fresh air! Both our babies are so happy in the great outdoors so we’re often out in all weathers. We also both attend lots of other groups and enjoy the usual nattering over a coffee with other mums/chasing our toddlers in different directions whilst our drinks go cold!

What is your favourite place to get away to? And why?

Forest getaways for both of us, Centreparcs or something similar! Somewhere with lots of outdoor space to explore and time to regroup as a family without the pressures of everyday life!
