Hi – I’m Natalie. Having gone back to work in the licenced fashion business after maternity leave, I knew I needed a more family friendly career. Although my hours were somewhat reduced I still found myself with the same workload as my full time colleagues and struggling to create a work life balance.
I stumbled upon Little Learners through a friend of my sisters who owns a franchise, and the more I learned about it the more I liked what I saw. When I was on maternity leave one of my favourite groups to go to with my son was messy play – its so much fun for children and there was no cleaning up for me after! What stood out for me about LL was the educational aspect through mark making all done via messy play.
When my workplace started making huge redundancies I knew it was time for me to make my own mark. Plucking up the courage to exit my comfort zone was hard but its a decision I know I won’t regret!
I’m excited to be part of the LL family and can’t wait to bring learning through messy play to Waltham Forest!
