How my store began...

After spending many years in the childcare industry and running my own successful child minding business, I soon realised that there simply wasnt enough time to create well thought out resources. I needed resources that kept up with the ever growing and changing imaginations of our little thinkers, and struggled to find a provider that was not only within my price range but that also could customise to meet my needs.
This has prompted me to make a change. I aim to offer affordable resources that will inspire and capture young minds. Not only to childcare settings but parents and families too. I want to take the strain out of parents, childcare providers and school teachers daily lives making resources at home. Let me do that for you while you spend time with your families!
Having used lots of these resources within my own setting and furthermore with my child at home, I know just how successful they can be.

I am focusing on creating natural and stimulating resources which are hand made to order. Nothing is too much trouble! A simple message for anything you want customised in my store is doable.
