I am the creator of PlayLab and the award winning blog - The Imagination Tree. I am also a teacher, influencer and mum of 4 from London, England. During my time teaching, I became the first Early Years Lead teacher for my borough and helped inspire and train other local teachers to improve their classroom practice.
My blog, The Imagination Tree, has won 3 UK blogging awards and been picked up internationally with a Red Tricycle Award for creativity. The blog has also won the following awards and these awards are testament to the quality of the content that is provided:
- Best Overall UK Blog of the Year 2011
- Best UK Craft Blog 2013
- Best UK Craft Blog 2016
As a mum, I understand what makes children want to learn. All the resources that are provided in PlayLab are designed to make it easy and simple to use for both parents as well as children. My aim is to engage children through activities that encourage creativity and stimulate the young mind (and hopefully also give parents a bit of "me time" to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while their children are engaged!).
