I am Amy. A stay at home Mom to a lovely little girl - who I refer to in this blog as Little N. We live in the UK.
Before becoming a Mother I worked in Childcare and Education for several years.
I began my career by working with babies, toddlers and preschoolers in a private Nursery, before moving on to work in mainstream education.
During my time in mainstream education I have worked with children from Nursery up to Year 6.
I also ran the School choir and won many awards and competitions. I have some great memories of these times as we had so much fun!
I am very passionate about children learning through their play and that is the driving force behind my blog. Play is such an important part of childhood, so unbelievably valuable.
Little N is 2 years old, we enjoy doing lots of activities and playing during our time together and I am here to share our adventures, our favourite things to do, places we visit, our ideas and to hopefully inspire others too.
In our home we learn by playing.
So grab yourself a cup of whatever you may fancy and have a look around......
Here is the link to our Facebook page which we will share our updates on:
Learning and Exploring Through Play
You can also find us on Pinterest: Learning Via Play
Welcome to our world :) - We are very happy to have you here
Amy Louise and Little N
Oh and before you go please take note of the following:
My blog is me sharing activities from my own personal experience, what I like to call 'our activity diary'.
All of my activities are done under full adult supervision and are done at my own choice where I have carefully considered the safety, suitability of the activity, my setting and the ability of the children.
I am here as a stay at home Mom, sharing things that we get up to.
It is paramount that you also take these measures and remember that it is your responsibility also when doing any activity with children in your care.
There are many things to consider before you do activities with your children, as not all will be suitable for everyone.
All photographs, observations, and any text on my blog has been taken and written by me unless clearly stated otherwise.
I welcome anybody sharing MY BLOG ADDRESS. Sharing is caring of course.
I do not give anybody permission to copy any of my photographs or any of the text written by me.
I do not give anybody permission to write on my photos or modify my images in any way.
If you wish to briefly give a description on your own blog/website with regards to any activities I have shared and then go on to give the link to my blog page, that of course is fine.
If you wish to use a photo in these circumstances then I ask that you contact me via the 'contact me' form in the right hand column of this blog.
I do not give anybody permission to reproduce part or whole posts from my blog on your sites/blog.
