Episode 17 - An Interview with Laura from The Little Play Village
Mum of 3 (if you include the dog) and a primary school teacher with over a decade of teaching experience. Plans to open The Little Play Village started in early 2020 while on maternity leave, indoors during the lock down. She rapidly turned to role play as a means to engage and entertain her toddler, realising how much she had always loved creating play set ups for him. She began to dream of running her own role play village and spent hours researching how she could make it a reality. With the support of her family and close friends, The Little Play Village was born. https://thelittleplayvillage.co.uk/ This episode is Sponsored by Cerys Keneally who helps children's activity & service providers to approach schools & nurseries without cold calling, so they can grow their business with confidence and have a bigger impact on children's lives.
