Alice's Story

Alice and her two child standing in the garden

Before having children, I taught in an inner London primary school. I started my career teaching in Key Stage 2 and then became leader of the Early Years Foundation Stage and taught Reception for several years.

I left teaching when I had my first child, Imogen, and moved 200 miles to Yorkshire! Three and a half years later my youngest daughter, Ada, was born. 

I love being a mum of two, but I also felt like I needed to reclaim something of my professional self, so I set up my Instagram page @raising_red_heads where I shared lots of learning through play ideas. 

I met Abbie on Instagram and we instantly clicked. We both have a passion for learning through sensory play and wanted to create a community where we could support other parents, careers and educators.
